I definitely felt hiccups for the first time today! I thought I felt them a couple weeks ago, but it was only like 3 rhythmic bumps, so I wasn't exactly sure.
But today, I *definitely* felt hiccups!! They were these rhythmic bumps that occurred every 2 seconds or so, and lasted about 5 minutes. Francis even got to join in on the fun and feel our little guy bumping around.
So cool!!!!! I can sit for hours just feeling (and watching) my little man's movements in my belly :)

My little guys: Bug & Pooker!

Last weekend, Jarrod & Jenn had some family pics taken. Robert will be 3-years-old on August 11th (I know, crazy! I can't believe my little man is such...a little man!!) and Connor is almost 9 months.

These pics of Bug (Robert) & Pooker (Connor) just melt an Auntie's heart :)

28 weeks - I am a HOUSE!

Here's a pic my mom took, after commenting that I am now "huge". I am 28 weeks (7 months!) pregnant, and already a house! Not sure this body can make it the full 40 weeks!!!

27 weeks, 5 days

I am a couple days away from my 3rd trimester! Woohoo! In the last week-and-a-half, my stomach has made some serious growth (no exaggeration)! Even my mom commented (after not seeing me for 1 week) that I looked "really big" now...well, I *feel* huge.

On the upside: there is no mistaking that I am pregnant now. For the first 6.5 months of my pregnancy, people would look at me in curiosity - wondering if I was pregnant, or just putting on "honeymoon weight". Now people are coming up and asking me how far along I am - even strangers. I am so glad I don't look like I have a wine gut anymore - I truly look pregnant :)

Anyway, I had another ultrasound today (I am 27 weeks, 5 days), and the doctor said everything looks really good! My placenta is no longer "low lying", so no need to schedule a c-section + baby boy's stats look right on target! Weight: 2 lbs 9oz, Weight/Height: 53% percentile, and no abnormalities seen (knock on wood!). Here are a couple pics...kinda freaky looking...hopefully they look normal for 28 weeks :)

The 1st pic: his face (with a shadow over half of it). The 2nd pic: his face, with his hand rubbing his eye
