I can’t believe its been 29 weeks already! Only about 11 to go. Wow! Well, so far things are going great – he’s very active – pokes my ribs and plays poking fights with me. My only “complaints” are the heartburn and the back pain. But all in all I’m a happy camper. I’m still craving cheeseburgers though… which is a bit strange, since I’m not a big meat eater, but cheeseburgers are the bomb!
Your baby is filling out this week. She’s adding fat to insulate her body for the day she leaves her cozy home. You can probably distinguish between feet and hands, head and bottom when your baby-to-be moves inside you. She takes practice breaths but won’t breathe air until delivery.
Your baby’s growth has begun to slow down now, but she will still gain approximately four pounds between now and birth. If she were born now, she would be able to breathe, but might tire easily and need assistance. Her little eyes are sensitive to light.
How Big Is Baby?
At two pounds, 12 ounces and almost 10 and one-half inches (crown to ump), your little one is growing fast!
