Born & Birth stories

Your baby's crown-to-rump length is about 8.8 inches. Weight has increased to around 1.5 pounds and fat is still being deposited at a high rate. Babies come in all shapes and sizes, so your baby could vary slightly from these `average` measurements. Your uterus has grown quite a bit bigger this week. The top of your uterus is between your bellybutton and your sternum. Your uterus is about the size of a soccer ball now!

If your baby is delivered at this time, it would have a good chance of surviving. It is best for your baby to remain inside of you for the remainder of the pregnancy, but great advances have been made in the care of a premature baby. Ventilators, monitors and medications all help premature babies develop and grow outside of the womb. If your baby were born this early, he would probably have to spend several months in the hospital and would be more susceptible to infections and other complications.

You can hear your baby's heartbeat with both a Doppler and a stethoscope at this time, and your partner may even be able to hear the heartbeat unaided if he puts his ear in the right position. Sex differentiation is being completed now. If you are expecting a baby boy, the testes start to descend into the scrotum. In baby girls, the vagina is hollowing out. Your baby is able to do more with their fingers now and can move his fingers to make a complete fist. As your baby becomes more dexterous, he will be able to touch and hold his feet. Babies also begin to prefer their left hand or right hand at this time. Because babies settle into routines of sleep and activity, you might begin to notice these patterns as well. Some women experience the most fetal movements while they are trying to rest.

Indeed they do lissie. I'm sorry that your pregnancy are so rough. My husband first two from his x, were rough. Both were c-sections and both pregnancies were very complicated. I can't imagine how hard that can be. My babies are always in the 7 pound range but I don't deal with weight gain well so around 38 weeks I start trying to kick start my labor. And I've tried it all. I would never recommend castrol oil it's the worst.

But we all know babies can surprise us and come at any time!

lissie**** - 15.3 hours ago
My mom really wants to wait till December 1 to induce b/c her DH has a surprise birthday party in another state the day I 39 weeks. I wouldn't care to wait until Dec 1 since it's only 2 more days and would put me at 39w2d

lissie**** - 15.4 hours ago
I am likely going to induce the week of thanksgiving also. Just b/c of the sheer size of my babies we are looking at the Saturday after thanksgiving which will be a little early. If i feel baby isn't big (which we both doubt) then I can wait if I choose. If my placenta previa persists though then we will be having this baby will be born Nov 15-22 at the very very latest I was told. I'd suspect sooner as Dr will deliver once my contractions really start to be persistent which the last two pregnancies was 34 weeks ish. That would be around Oct 25 ish. I'll have a better idea of the previa on my Sept 15 ultrasound. Also, I'll better know if she indeed has a heart condition.

letroise11 - 1 days ago
So obviously it's only going to be the three of us through the last three months. Do y'all have any premonitions of when you might go? I'm betting I'll probably go the week of thanks giving. Which is very upsetting for my husband, who waits for my turkey day food all year lol. But my last two came 5 days early. I'm in disbelief we that this Friday starts my third trimester. Where has the time gone?

lissie**** - 2 days ago
Juliesmom// I know it's crazy how fast your life is changing! Seriously you just became a mother less than two years ago and now you will have two babies! I feel the same way as I am having my 5th and my oldest is still 6! *she'll have her birthday shortly before baby comes though ;)

lissie**** - 2 days ago
I was really really uptight with my first two. In some ways it was better but in many ways I was just stressing myself out! I think with experience you learn what to worry about and what to let go. And I think things are more familiar so you can let loose a little more in those ways too. Like for me breast feeding was soooo sooo hard with my first. And now it's second nature. I was a germ a phobe also before. I still think it's important to be smart about things and wash your hands etc but I would panic about things back then lol!

letroise11 - 4 days ago
Lady's my oldest is 19. It was easier raising my older girls. I was a lot younger and didn't work. But now I think I am a lot more laid back and realize that when my 3 year old barely potty trained it wasn't the end of the world. Luckily non of my pregnancies have had complications, even though I constantly worry something will come up. This pregnancy I've worried the least and it feels good to be laid back and not worried about everything

Juliemom24 - 4 days ago
Lissie, I was 26 with my first too! It's hard to imagine my life in the next ten years but it's really fun looking back. I can't believe that I will have two kids in under four months!

lissie**** - 5 days ago
I was 26 when I found this website. It was very active back then and it was a source of comfort to me when I found out that we were expecting our first baby a little sooner than we had planned. I was overwhelmed with the transition to motherhood. I think it is still overwhelming with each addition to the family and the complications pregnancy an bring. But now I'm one of the older mommas and more familiar with the process. Though there is always something each pregnancy that I learn from you ladies and the more I experience the more I realize how much more there is to learn. Just thinking about how much has changed in the past 7.5 years.

lissie**** - 6 days ago
Letroise// glad you can understand me on the aging body ha ha!!! I was so different with my earlier pregnancies. And this one is just really early to feel this way (compared to my other experiences). I do think it is both age/#of babies. My mom was really young and had 6 and said it was easier in her 20's. Well, at least we aren't in our 40's. Bet that is even harder lol! Glad your girls are being so helpful. Mine tries bless her heart. She's only 6 so there is only so much she can do ha ha!

lissie**** - 6 days ago
Juliemom//It's so good to see baby and have DH see/feel! Lol, yes moving during a pregnancy is the worst!!! I've done it 6 times pregnant! Horrible!! And I've been in your spot where I wasn't seen for months! So happy you are getting your scan finally.

Juliemom24 - 6 days ago
Oh, Letroise, I totally get the humidity. It makes you want to do NOTHING! Luckily, we missed it this year since we moved before it got too bad. In other news, hubby finally felt baby move last night and today I could see my stomach moving with the kicks. I love it! I also scheduled my appt for my anatomy scan. I'll be 26 weeks. Crazy. I better not move during any other pregnancy.

letroise11 - 7 days ago
Lissie I feel you on the age thing. I've already stopped bending down to pick up things it's horrible. And I'm so tired on my days off I barely want to get out of bed but this Texas heat and humidity isn't helping that battle. Luckily I have the older girls to help with the cooking and cleaning.

Juliemom24 - 7 days ago
Sometimes I think I'm ready to be in my third trimester and then I have days like today where I have lots of energy and can sit on the floor and play with my toddler for hours... and dread that third trimester tiredness that just doesn't go away. This baby is starting to feel more and more real and it's starting to hit that he'll be here so soon and that makes me want to snuggle him and have December hurry up and get here! (and yes, there were four 'ands' in that sentence)

lissie**** - 8 days ago
I feel like I am in the third trimester in a lot of ways. Feel uncomfortable. More than previous pregnancies. I think my age and this being baby #5 and my oldest is 6. But why am I having m/s and such fatigue lately? idk. Also, there is so much I want to get done around the house but I hardly feel like doing normal chores etc. (that means I have to get up and down...)

shaym007 - 9 days ago
I'm so ready to be in the third trimester!!!

lissie**** - 11 days ago
In a few more weeks we will enter our third trimester. That seems crazy to me!

aksnods - 37 days ago
Omg this pregnancy is going by so fast. I can't believe only three and s half months left. Yikes. I'm also putting my house on the market and taking care of my g ma whom had a stroke. Plus taking my daughter to counseling and scheduling her tonsils and adnoids surgery. Been so busy this pregnancy is flashing before my eyes. Now I'm up to two week visits instead of one month. They do my gd testing on the fifth. Hope all goes well with that cause I had it with my first pregnancy. Still getting bh contractions.

jojo - 38 days ago
Well I picked my lil lady's coming home outfit and guess what.. I don't like it haha back to the drawing board lol love yours tho bonita so cute xx

bonitadiane - 39 days ago
She does have one in pink too. I just think the outfits are the cutest. I will say it says newborn but I think it maybe a little bigger. But I guess bigger is better then smaller or not fitting baby. :) JoJo the splash pad was soooooo relaxing. It was sooo hot that day that even I played in water with kiddos. I get too antsy if I stay home and do nothing. Like today I'm going to need to get out or I'll go need to figure out what to do with kids. Hope you ladies have a fantastic weekend!!!!

bonitadiane - 39 days ago
Hello ladies ...hope your all having a great week. It truly feels like these days are flying by. Twinny... Yes, I bought this outfit online. It was Ebay actually. Here is the link...

matoks - 40 days ago
twinny glad to hear u nw av appetite,u ladies shouldnt worry about the financies it is God dat gave us the little ones and he sure knows how to take care of them,i do think of it sometimes also,as am not working only hubby does and i av course that am paying huge amount on+the baby we are expecting but i dnt allow it to borther me as i rely on God to make a way,trust him and pray HE will definately surprise u and try not to buy things that are too expensive,u can keep eye on when sales is on to reduce ur not too bothered about the pain am having as have been told that its normal to experience it bec my womb is expanding and little being has little space to move around,just that i thought the few weeks for me gonna be awesome not knowing am going to face another thing entirely,ahahahah.ok ladies av a great time.

bonitadiane - 41 days ago
So happy to hear your doing better today JoJo. Hope it keeps up. Posted pic of outfit ladies. It looks a little big. I'm hoping it fits him. Lol Have a great day ladies. Thinking to take girls to splash pad as it's going to be a very hot one today.

jojo - 41 days ago
Thank you so much ladies. Your support really does mean alot. Feeling better this morning think everything just got a bit overwhelming but your both right.. I know we'll manage somehow we have to.. so glad to hear your feeling better twinny. I'm sure your appetite will continue to get back to normal as your body gets used to keeping food down. Bet she's grown loads when you go for your scan nxt mth.. so with you on the incontinence thing. I've been wearing panty liners for a few weeks now and I'm sure I'm weeing myself.. not good!! Tell you I know this is no.4 but my pelvic floor muscles must be shot lol depending on my girls position some days when I get to evening time the pressure in my bits below. . I swear my insides could possibly just drop out haha bonita I love love what you have planned for your hubby when your little man arrives.. love JJ.. definitely would love to see a pic when you have time hun xx

bonitadiane - 41 days ago
Sorry Twinny for the incontinence issues!!! I have no experience with this YET. Lol but my sister swears after this baby I'll have it. She's had 4 kids and she believes the more you have ... This tends to happen. Awwee the beauty of child bearing. Not!!! I think I still wouldn't change it for the :)

bonitadiane - 41 days ago
Awweee JoJo big hugs my friend. We are all entitled to these days but be sure to shrug it off. I totally agree with Twinny. I too will always be rich in love and family. Stay positive, be happy... God will provide. We have hit some tough times but we refuse to let it come between us or our happiness and now our family. We don't have luxury .. Big fancy cars, but I have so much more I budget, I thrift shop and I'm totally happy and ok with it. Don't look at tomorrow and think of what it will be... Look at today and make it be. Basically don't stress the unknown for we never know the beauty in store for us. Praying for you my friend. You will be surrounded with beings who love you to the moon and back. Many strive for this. :) Hope tomorrow is a better day. Xx

jojo09 1 pink 1 blue - 41 days ago
Bonita ur t-shirt idea sounds absolutely fantastic,ur hubby will b so delighted when u show him it on ur baby, I love the JJ aswell, very cute!!!!!! Defo try and upload a piccy wud love to see it. Hope ur well hun xxx

jojo09 1 pink 1 blue - 41 days ago
**big massive hugs** to u Jojo, I am so sorry ur having a down day - I wont even begin to try to say anything to ease ur pain missing ur mum as I am exactly the same about my dad. Just know we r here for u chick if u want to talk xx As for the finances I am going thru a similar thing, 3-4 kids, my hubby is a full time stay at home daddy...I dont think we thought the finances through BUT, like the old saying going 'i'm never going to be rich financially but I will always be rich in love' ...whatever life throws at us we find a way of coping, dont let worrys cloud ur happiness hun take each day as it comes xx As for my sickness the tablets r working amazingly!! I am SO pleased to feel relatively normal again, i'm not eating much but i'm having more than I was and I dont feel ill afterwards which is a MASSIVE achievement for me!! :o) I swear within 5 days of taking them the baby must have put at least 10lb on coz I can feel her weight now!! Haha...anyone else having incontinence issues?!! I've been full of cold for a week now and everytime I cough...OMG! I'm actually wearing tena lady only 35! Am ruined already hahaha xxx

jojo - 41 days ago
Hey ladies.. sorry to hear your heartburn is so bad it's awful when it's like that ; ( feel for you hun. Twinny how's the sickness going, are the tablets helping? Matoks I'm sure all is fine but if it's worrying you that much best to get it checked like bonita said.. garage work is going well the builders have been pretty good as far as the mess goes and they're doing a pretty good job :) as for me I'm having bit of an off day I think :( been looking as prams again today and tonight I feel a bit overwhelmed with it all.. suddenly wondering how we're gonna manage financially to not only get everything baby needs but bringing 4 kids up and coping on maternity pay are all weighing heavily on my mind tonight.. wish my mum was here ; ( ; (

bonitadiane - 42 days ago
Good morning ladies. Hope all is well. Matoks I'd probably get them looked at if I were you. Just make sure all is well. I'm getting lots of kicks from baby right now. Thinking the cup of coffee has him jumping. I ordered a personalized outfit for baby. I'm bringing it to hospital ... It's a surprise for hubby. It's got Joshua Jr. On shirt and hat says JJ. I nearly cried when opened it yesterday. I'll try and take pic and post. Hubby has no clue. I'm thinking he'll love it. My throats been on fire. I've never had such horrible heartburn in my life and it starts around lunch and goes all afternoon/evening. Just awful. Today makes 26 weeks. Going by too fast. JoJo has reno's started? Twinny hope your enjoying time off. :)

matoks - 42 days ago

jojo09 1 pink 1 blue - 43 days ago

bonitadiane - 45 days ago
Hello lovely ladies... Yeah for Fridays!!!! I spent the whole day in a splash pad with the girls. It was sooooo relaxing and refreshing. Pools are great for these lil bubs. Baby was kicking up a storm as I sat in water. I'm still finding myself exhausted. It's become frustrating. :( Twinny so happy this vomiting issue will be cleared. Only took 25 weeks!!! Auuurgh. Why didn't he give you these pills right away, in the beginning? Lol Really hoping this truly helps. I'm so sorry you've been so sick. It's such an awful feeling. :( Ladies enjoy your time off. This is truly well deserved!!!!! :) No big plans for us this weekend. Just planning to relax with the family.

jojo - 45 days ago
Hahaha worzel gummidge haha not watched that in years haha I reakon my boobs could easily count for a bag of sugar each lol I joked earlier I might get the kitchen scales out and weigh them hahaha

jojo09 1 pink 1 blue - 45 days ago

Good job this is my last time round otherwise mine wud end up past my knees by the time am 40!!!

I so wanted to pull off the 'beautiful wind swept' look but ended up looking like Worzel Gummidge!! Hahaha xxx

jojo - 46 days ago
Aww hun I'm so pleased.. fancy them giving you heartburn tablets and not sickness!! So glad you have something now, fingers crossed :) your little girl sounds a little wriggler like mine haha.. yes it has been very humid hasn't it. Luckily I haven't had any trouble sleeping but struggled a few days in the office.. one of the boys found me a fan tho lol sooooo glad it's Friday.. it's been a very long week but on the plus side - no work for me until Thursday woo hoo tell you what tho - my boobs feel friggin massive these past few days lol

jojo09 1 pink 1 blue - 46 days ago
Ello lovely. Arh it was great Jojo. She measured me and got babas heartbeat straight away, the baby was kicking the little probe haha I seen the doctor aswell and told him I wasnt happy that no-one seems to be trying to help me stop my sickness and feel better and he said the last lot of tablets I got when I had the kidney infection where heartburn tablets and not sickness tablets which is why they didnt help! He gave me the same tablets I had when I was having the twins and first day on them today Jo I feel great...I dont wanna jinx myself but if they carry on working this good I may just get to enjoy the 3rd trimester!! Fingers crossed hey!! How r u doing? This heat is hard to cope with isnt it!! Xxl

Week 25

glowingwith2 - 55 days ago
Hi ladies, I don't get on here much anymore. The FB page is pretty busy. It's 'Due in Oct 2014' for those who are interested in joining that group. Blonde, I'm so sorry to hear you are on bed rest already. Have you done your Glucose test yet? I do mine tomorrow morning. I'm also registering at the hospital tomorrow too. I'm 26 weeks today. I can't believe we are at the end of our 2nd trimester. I gained a boat load of weight last month, but haven't put any on in two weeks. I started running again (now that the move is behind us). Hopefully that helps. My husband says my tummy is bigger than I was with my daughter, but my arms, legs, and face are all thinner. I guess that's a good thing.

melanie0910 - 55 days ago
Last day in last 25 weeks I am chugging right along. C-Section set up for the 14th so I have 12 weeks and 6 days to go. I have to say the way the 18 month old has me on my toes I don't if I will make it to the 14th
