3rd Trimester Check Up

I had my 3rd trimester checkup today... even though "technically" I won't be in my 3rd trimester for another week. I gained another pound this past month, and my belly is definitely bigger than last month! Oh well, I can find comfort in knowing I'm only going to get bigger over the next 3 months! Anyway, things are pretty much the same as they were at the last checkup with our little guy... he's still measuring over a week ahead. They guessed from the ultrasound today that he weighed 3 lbs (which is what babies usually weigh around 29 or 30 weeks). But everything else looked perfect :). When I had my 3rd trimester ultrasound with Roman, his head was down so far that we couldn't even get a glimpse of his face, so it was a real treat to be able to peak at our babies features!! Here's his darling profile:

Then came the 3D pictures... SO FUN!
It looks like he has full, big lips like Roman... Yay!
& I thought he had Anthon's nose when I saw it in the ultrasound, but when the Dr. was going over the ultrasound with us she said, "Oh, how cute! He has your nose, Mommy." So, we're looking forward to seeing who's nose he actually has once he's here :)
It was SO fun to get to see him! I feel him all day long, but SEEING him made me re-realize "Oh yeah, there IS a baby growing in there!" So, the home stretch begins (or it will in a week)! This pregnancy seems to be going a lot faster for me than with Roman... I should probably thank Roman for that cause I'm pretty sure he's the reason I've felt so busy & that's what's made the time fly :).
