Sweet Baby 28 Weeks

Posted by Courtney Lopez on

 Sweet Baby is the size of a Chinese Cabbage!

This week we had our monthly checkup, and now we’re going to be going every two weeks!  Wow, time is flying by!  Before we know it she will be here, and we cannot wait!  I also jumped up 5lbs this week.. The doctor said that it’s completely normal and most people jump up quickly out of nowhere and then are more consistent with weight gain.  So far I’ve gained about 20lbs, but really only 10 if you don’t count the 10lb weight loss due to morning sickness.  I have been so tired lately.  I can’t believe how much I can sleep.  Like everyone has been telling me “Get sleep now, you won’t once she’s here!”  I’m not fighting it.  Enjoying every moment of this pregnancy.  
About our baby:  By this week, your baby weighs two and a quarter pounds (like a Chinese cabbage) and measures 14.8 inches from the top of her head to her heels. She can blink her eyes, which now sport lashes. With her eyesight developing, she may be able to see the light that filters in through your womb. She’s also developing billions of neurons in her brain and adding more body fat in preparation for life in the outside world. (summary and weekly image from babycenter)
