I'm in week 28 now, 3rd trimester and so far not too uncomfortable. I was reading my handy Pregnancy Tracker app today and it was preparing me for the discomforts of the 3rd trimester including back pain, sharp shooting pains from my low back down my legs, swollen feet and fatigue all over again.
On a happier note the app also told me about how the baby's doing this week. The baby is dreaming like I mentioned in an earlier blog which I think is so cool. She weighs about 2 1/2 pounds and measures almost 16 inches in length from head to toe. She is learning to blink and cough, and she's getting better at sucking and breathing.
The good news is that if baby were to be born this week (which we really hope doesn't happen) her lungs are mature enough to handle it and she would have a pretty good prognosis. Of course we want her to stay in there for the next 12 weeks to keep growing big and strong. She is starting to put on some baby fat now so she'll look more and more like a baby and less and less like a prune in the weeks to come.
Do you know any babies born this early that have happy stories?
