28 Weeks! The craziest thing I’ve read so far about this week is that the baby’s lungs are developed enough that if she were to be born THIS WEEK she would probably be able to survive without any external support. Of course, I DO NOT want her to come this week, I want a nice fully cooked kid, but it’s still cool that, in theory, she COULD.
The scariest thing is WTF HOW BIG IS A CHEESECAKE FACTORY CHEESECAKE? I mean, apparently it’s around 28″, but come on. That’s got to be fake, right?
The app that I use basically says for this week, “after this week, she’s just getting bigger and smarter, with a few more finishing touches” which means there’s like a real functioning baby in there. Damn. It’s still about three weeks until my 4D ultrasound, but I’m so already so excited to see what she looks like!
Bump size: About 39.5″
Movement: Pretty much always, at this point, unless she’s (I assume) sleeping? One thing I’ve noticed this week is especially if I’m laying on my back I’ll feel this weird movement that’s almost like a tide rolling across my belly from one side to the other – I can’t see it yet but it’s a very strange feeling. I’m not sure how else to describe it though.
Cravings/Aversions: Definitely think I’m past the cravings stage. Nothing new or weird.
Mood: Overall good. No major pregnancy brain issues this week, just very tired.
Other Symptoms: Back pain is becoming more constant. Yesterday it was a weird lower back that made walking hurt. Today it’s upper back. Guess it just depends on how she’s sitting, at this point.
Once I pop this kid out, I don’t think I’ll ever want to LOOK at a horizontal stripe again.
Thanks for reading 😀
