Creepy, right?� How about this one ...
Pretty funny, I think.� Anyway, I'll let you decide for yourself.� My sister shared the site with me, and I definitely thought it was worthy enough to be featured on the blog.� Hey, it can't be any worse than the Baby Shower Cake Wrecks or the Martha Stewart Halloween costumes, can it?� I'm not gonna lie - if Baby Lump turns out to be a boy, I'm kind of looking forward to taking a picture of James and him and making a ManBaby picture out of it.� My new laptop is fully equipped with PhotoShop.� ;o)
In the interim, feel free to check out more ManBabies at ManBabies.com at your leisure.
As for Baby Lump, my last doctor appointment revealed that my baby bump is measuring slightly smaller than it should be for 33 weeks gestation (See, It's not just me being paranoid that I seem small!).� Based on my too-small belly, our doctor scheduled an ultrasound for this Monday.� A little worrisome to me, but on the bright side, we get more fetal baby pictures!
And there's no need for James and I to avert our eyes; apparently it's not possible for the untrained eye to tell the baby's sex, even this far along.� Another cool thing is we'll probably be able to find out the exact weight of Baby Lump, along with his/her position in the womb.� Hopefully his/her head is starting to point downward to make for an easy landing.

Okay, okay, all kidding aside, time to update you on Baby Lump's developmental touch points for this week.� At this point, he/she should be about 15 inches long, weigh almost 3 pounds and be starting to form some eyelashes and eyebrows.� One Web site I refer to describes the baby's length as similar to an amusement park cinnamon-sugar-coated churro.� Mmm ...
I had my glucose screening on Monday, which checks for gestational diabetes.� Everything I've read about it prepared me to drink a nasty "glucose cocktail" before my blood was taken, but it honestly wasn't bad at all.� It basically tasted like a very sweet but flat cup of Pepsi.� Anyway, I heard from the doctor today that I passed, although my iron is low (no news here, it always has been), which means I'll be taking an iron supplement from now on.� No biggie.
Well, it seems like we're in the home stretch now folks.� The frequency of my doctor visitations has now been increased to once every two weeks until week 36, at which point I'll check in once a week until delivery.
Does anyone else think time has gone by at a ridiculously fast pace?

My friend, Yianni is right - Martha should go back to jail for this one.� Those poor babies.� These are the cruelest baby costumes ever!� There's no way Baby Lump's first Halloween will be spent as a lemon meringue pie or a boiled and plated lobster.� That apple pie baby looks like she's in a food coma.� No wonder "Caesar salad baby" doesn't want to cooperate ...
In weekly updates, Baby Lump now weighs two full pounds and measures about 14 inches long (as long as he/she isn't gearing up to be a Paul Bunyan-type baby).� He/she has also started working on that birthday hairdo and should be growing some cute little baby fuzz by now.
According to many Web sites, this week marks the last week in my second trimester, so apparently I'm about two-thirds of the way there.� Third trimester, here I come!
