25 Weeks: Rutabaga?

25 Weeks! Only 108 to go! I cannot believe we are about to enter into double digit's for the days remaining in this pregnancy. I remember looking at the countdown ticker when we first found out, it said we had about 252 days remaining... that seemed like forever and it turns out that things are passing by rather quickly. I imagine the last month will be the longest month of all.
Pregnancy wise everything is still going great. The bump is definitely growing! Some days I love it and other days I have issues with it. I know pregnancy is the biggest blessing, but what it does to your body amazes me. Today I was feeling pretty good about myself and had Brian take a 25 week photo. I am working out 5-6 times a week doing a mixture of cardio, prenatal yoga and Wii Fit.
There is still a lot of work to do nursery wise. We will probably assemble the crib this weekend. We have been blessed with baby girl clothing, shoes, accessories, etc by Leanne and Anna, so I can hardly wait for the dresser to come in so I can start organizing all the cute stuff. The crib mattress, dresser hutch and glider will all be delivered next week. The dresser and recliner for the living room will be delivered later this month. The good thing is that we have time to work on everything and will help make the time fly by as things slow down for us.
I am not sure what a Rutabaga is, but that is the size of our baby.
From the Baby Center:
Head to heels, your baby now measures about 13 1/2 inches. Her weight — a pound and a half — isn't much more than an average rutabaga, but she's beginning to exchange her long, lean look for some baby fat. As she does, her wrinkled skin will begin to smooth out and she'll start to look more and more like a newborn. She's also growing more hair — and if you could see it, you'd now be able to discern its color and texture.
