27 Weeks

I can't believe I have entered into the 3rd trimester! I am feeling pretty good this week, and Graham is getting big! I am still having some back pain, but hopefully I will get a prenatal massage soon which should help. I am loving the warmer weather and have even layed out a couple of times. The next 3 weekends are going to be busy for us, and I will be busy during the week packing up our apartment. Here is me and Graham at 27 weeks!

How your baby's growing:

This week, your baby weighs almost 2 pounds (like a head of cauliflower) and is about 14 1/2 inches long with his legs extended. He's sleeping and waking at regular intervals, opening and closing his eyes, and perhaps even sucking his fingers. With more brain tissue developing, your baby's brain is very active now. While his lungs are still immature, they would be capable of functioning — with a lot of medical help — if he were to be 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 him, so just relax and enjoy the tickle.

See what your baby looks like this week.
