(length of an English hothouse cucumber)
How Far Along: 26 weeks! Only more more days until the start of the third trimester (26.6 weeks)!!!
Size of baby (from babycenter.com): He now weighs about a pound and two-thirds and measures 14 inches (an English hothouse cucumber) from head to heel.
My baby this week (from babycenter.com): The network of nerves in your baby's ears is better developed and more sensitive than before. He may now be able to hear both your voice and your partner's as you chat with each other. He's inhaling and exhaling small amounts of amniotic fluid, which is essential for the development of his lungs. These so-called breathing movements are also good practice for when he's born and takes that first gulp of air. And he's continuing to put on baby fat. If you're having a boy, his testicles are beginning to descend into his scrotum — a trip that will take about two to three days.
Stretch Marks: No.
Sleep: I've been going to bed later (10 to 11) so I have been sleeping like a champ these past few nights!!!
Best Moment of the Week: Knowing my baby was ok after yesterday's scare!!!!
Movement: Yes. Now I feel him rolling around and not just kicking. Very cool!!
Food cravings: I've actually been REALLY good all week food wise. I have cut out the date and protein bars from my diet and have noticed I haven't been getting as many headaches. Extra bonus besides not eating those calories!
What I Miss: Being able to go for a walk (I haven't been with the heat in the 90s!)
What I'm Looking Forward To: I am excited to see him again on June 28th's sono and then even more on July 7th's 3D ultrasound!
Milestones: Third trimester this week!! (26.6 weeks)
Emotions: OMG. Yesterday's scare was so traumatic. I pray he goes full term!
Symptoms: Nothing new.
