28 weeks.

By this week, your baby weighs two and a quarter pounds (like a Chinese cabbage) and measures 14.8 inches from the top of her head to her heels. She can blink her eyes, which now sport lashes. With her eyesight developing, she may be able to see the light that filters in through your womb. She's also developing billions of neurons in her brain and adding more body fat in preparation for life in the outside world.

no belly picture this week, i think. i'm already at 28 wks, 4 days, so i may as well wait until friday when i hit 29 wks.

it's st. patrick's day. i would give my left arm for an irish car bomb and some strongbow pints. le sigh.

that is all. i'm going to play with my puppy.

:::whisper::: It will be okay if you have one drink. :) Don't tell anyone, but I had a (small) margarita the other night. It was heavenly........

LMAO...Yes, I agree with Elisa. My cousin did drink while she was preggo, it doesn't hurt!!!!!!!!!!!! Those are old wives tales.

BTW, I'm sooo excited to be your labor buddy! YIPEE!
