My Pregnancy Week 28

Pregnancy Week 28

Your baby continues to grow and develop inside of you. Measuring just under 15 inches long, she weighs approximately 2 1/4 lbs. She will continue to gain body fat in the coming weeks to prepare her for life outside of your womb.

At 28 weeks, your baby can recognize your voice! His eyes continue to develop this week, and his brain is developing millions of neurons. The hair on his head continues to grow. Muscle tone in his body steadily develops, and even though his lungs are now capable of breathing air, it would be difficult for him if he were born now.

    Is it normal for your doctor to only require 2 ultrasounds for your whole pregnancy? I want a 3rd one, but she said that she has to have a medical reason for another one. The only reason I got the second one was because the first time, my baby was curled in a little ball and wouldn’t move for anything! :)

    I am almost 29 weeks and yesterday night I had an accident. As I was walking from the bathroom (at work) to the front register, I started leaking. I figured I was peeing myself. I did notice how I could not hold it in even after I tried so hard to so that I could make it back to the bathroom. I told my mom about it and she went on to tell her mom (my grandma) about it. Well my grandma said I could be leaking amniotic fluid because she had a similar event happen to her when she was pregnant. Has anyone ever had this happen to them? I don’t know what it means or if I should be worried?

    How early is too early to look for a pediatrician? I already have one in mind, but I don’t want to call too soon and then not be able to secure him.

    Finally!! My last trimester!! I can’t wait until I see my little Alexander!! I’m so excited. First time mom and I’m nervous but happy.

  14. I’m 28 weeks and having a boy and what they said is certainly true every pregnancy is slightly different the only thing I cN agree on is with both of my pregnancies my babies both loved to press on my nerve and at times very hard for me to walk. My boyfriend and I can’t wait for our little one to enter the world just waiting for my baby shower and spending time with my special people and my life.

    I’m on week 28 and this is my 4th and final child. However as they say every pregnancy is different indeed it is because I sure am having a very different experience with my boy than I had with either one of my girls. I’m enjoying the difference more times than others though.

    Actually had baby measured because of some issues I had in the past with pre-term labor and delivery! Baby is about 2 lbs 10 oz, worried if baby keeps on the big side he will be early as well!

    • Avatar of Melisa Melisa says:

      At my 18 week sonogram my baby was weighing 12oz when he should have only been about 8-10. They said the baby will not come early just because the baby is bigger than he is supposed to be.
