Baby G#3 update

I am 29 weeks along and feeling quite pregnant. Although, I will still say this has been my easiest pregnancy by far, there are always the typical discomforts. She is very active and kicking all the time. The other two kiddos are excited for her to come out and play. Here is some info. that I got in my weekly pregnancy update email... Your baby is growing rapidly now. This week he weighs about 2 1/2 pounds (like a butternut squash) and is a tad over 15 inches long from head to heel. His muscles and lungs are continuing to mature, and his head is getting bigger to accommodate his growing brain — which is busy developing billions of neurons. Every day, about 200 milligrams of calcium is deposited in your baby's skeleton, which is now hardening. With this rapid growth, it's no surprise that your baby's nutritional needs reach their peak during this trimester. We also have a c-section scheduled for Thursday June 18, 2009. So that will be her birthday unless she decides to come early : )
