99 Days

I have 99 days left!! Actually, 99 days until my due date. Who knows when the little one will actually show up. I'm so excited that I hit the double digits. Obviously I still have a long way to go, but two digits seems so much smaller than three :-) Tomorrow I'll be 26 weeks pregnant and next Friday I'll officially start my third trimester. Oh, how the time fly's!

Last night Christina was kicking up a storm. She seems to do that a lot when I sit down on the couch to watch a movie. Oh, and cold water really gets her going. It's funny because I've heard of other pregnant women who drink Orange Juice to get the baby kicking, but my little girl gets excited over water. She's like her mommy already.

According to what I read, Christina should be about 9 to 10 inches long by now, although that doesn't include the length of the legs. It's very weird, but "they" only measure based on head to butt. I have no idea why.

She is now weighing in about 2 pounds, which is double what she was when I got my last ultrasound. From this point on, she is going to be growing very quick (or so I've heard).

Also, at this stage, my little girl now has her eyes open. That means that if I shine a flashlight onto my belly, she might react by moving away or kicking. I haven't tried this little experiement yet, but I'm sure I will at some point.
