if there is any doubt my belly isn't growing every week, i've included both pictures of it at 27 and 28 weeks! yesterday i had some pretty strong braxton hicks (practice) contractions and i wasn't sure it was normal. after talking to my friend angie i calmed down and noticed they weren't at all consistent with pre-term labor. i'm glad to be in the last trimester. it's becoming very REAL to me that in a little over 2 months i'll be holding our precious baby in my arms!
