28 weeks pregnant

28 weeks. Baby is still very active. I’ve been feeling huge! Trying to walk and keep my body moving gently. Tired, tired and tired. I get too tired and feel like I can’t do this. I’m trying to stay well rested. Talking, singing and reading to the baby. I love feeling the kicks all the time, it assures me that all is well in there.

Your baby now weighs about 2.7 lbs (1.2kg), measures about 10.4 inches (26cm) from crown to rump, and is around 16.7 inches (37cm) long. He is plu

28 weeks. Baby is still very active. I've been feeling huge! Trying to walk and keep my body moving gently. Tired, tired and tired. I get too tired and feel like I can't do this. I'm trying to stay well rested. Talking, singing and reading to the baby. I love feeling the kicks all the time, it assures me that all is well in there. </p>
<p>Your baby now weighs about 2.7 lbs (1.2kg), measures about 10.4 inches (26cm) from crown to rump, and is around 16.7 inches (37cm) long. He is plumper and rounder, and his head and body are beginning to be in proportion.</p>
<p>Your baby now uses all of his senses. He can see, taste, recognize touch and the sound of your voice.</p>
<p>During the last trimester, your baby will receive antibodies from you through your placenta that will provide immunity from many diseases.</p>
<p>Your baby's adrenal glands are producing androgen-like substances. Androgens are normally male sex hormones, but in late pregnancy, when they reach the placenta they are turned into estrogen which in turn stimulates the production of prolactin in your body. Prolactin is the hormone needed for milk production. In this exchange, your baby is beginning to stimulate milk production in your breasts so that when he is born there will be food waiting for him.

27 weeks pregnant!

27 weeks. Been feeling nauseous often again…trying to just flow with it and enjoy the pregnancy regardless. Feeling big and knowing that I’m going to get bigger!! Ahhh! Tired and tired and tired….trying to stay well rested.
Baby is still very active. It’s fun watching my belly move around. 12 more weeks to go….I am so grateful to be pregnant through the Texas winter

Your baby weighs about 2.5 lbs (1.1kg) and is about 10 inches (25cm) from crown to rump and 15.75 inches (35 cm) long from head to toe.

At this time, the baby has tastebuds which allow it to distinguish between sweet, sour and bitter tastes.

Brain tissue and brain development increases at this time as your baby grows the folds and grooves needed for a developed brain.

Eyebrows and eyelashes are probably present and the hair on your baby’s head is growing longer.

Your baby’s body is filling out, getting a bit fatter as fat deposition continues, but it is still somewhat red and wrinkled.

Your baby is big enough for his presentation to be determined. That is, your caregiver can probably tell how your baby is oriented in your uterus. He may be breech (bottom down) or head first. If your baby is in a breech position now, there is no need to worry as there is still plenty of room and time for your baby to change positions.

Your baby can feel pain and respond to it in the same way as a full term baby.
