27 weeks pregnant, and only 13 weeks left!! 🙂 Very exciting for us! Sometimes we can’t believe that we only have 13 weeks left, and other times we feel like 13 weeks is so far away!
Here is what is going on with the baby this week:
“This week, your baby weighs almost 2 pounds (like the head of a cauliflower) and is about 14 1/2 inches long with her legs extended. She’s sleeping and waking at regular intervals, opening and closing her eyes and perhaps even sucking her fingers . With more brain tissue developing, your baby’s brain is very active now. While her lungs are still immature, they would be capable of functioning — with a lot of medical help — if she were born now. Chalk up any tiny rhythmic movements you may be feeling to a case of baby hiccups, which may be common from now on. Each episode usually lasts only a few moments, and they don’t bother her, so just relax and enjoy the tickle.”
I have definitely been feeling the thumps and kicks from our baby. Last night the baby got the hiccups and Matt and I were able to feel and even see my stomach moving from them! Fun stuff!
