Your baby now weighs nearly 2 pounds/ and measure's 36.6 centimetres from head to toe.
His eyes open and close, he sleeps and wakes at regular intervals and he may suck a finger or thumb.
Sweet dreams, little baby! Some experts believe that babies begin to dream by the 28th week. What do they dream about? No one knows for certain but the brain is active this week as well.
The characteristic grooves on the brain's surface start to appear and more brain tissue develops. Chalk up any rhythmic movement you may be feeling to a case of the hiccups, which are common this week and throughout the pregnancy. Your baby has them but is breathing in amniotic fluid rather than air.
Since your uterus is now up near your rib cage, you may now find yourself short of breath if you haven't already. Starting now and continuing through the last three months of pregnancy, you may be plagued by leg cramps, haemorrhoid's, varicose veins and an itchy abdomen.
So thats bubs and me this week as we head into the final trimester!! I luckily am not experiencing any of the above complaints, if anything I'm just a bit tired but hey, that could be due to not getting enough sleep!! :)
I love feeling him moving and so does Paul, he kicks/punches that hard now that he moves my/Paul's hand (arm if its resting on belly).
Names are down to a select few now but free free to randomly comment if a cool, funky or classic name comes to you suddenly and you feel the need to suggest it!! :)
