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.

Flybear, I know the feeling. I'm ready to have him in my arms and kiss his little face. I love how me and the baby are bonding already. He responds to me when I'm singing him little songs. Not sure if it's a good response or if my singing voice is annoying him but it definitely gets him

flybear - 13 days ago
I'm getting excited and a little anxious. I know I'm not even to the 3rd trimester yet, but I think I'm over pregnancy. It's my 4th. Just give me my baby. Haha I can't believe you only have 12 weeks left. Yay! - 17 days ago
Since my c-section is in 12 weeks I'm going to really pick up the pace in preparing for the little one. The first thing is getting a new vehicle. I visited a couple of dealerships and I finally found a vehicle I like so I'll be getting that this weekend. Goodbye Toyota Corolla, hello Dodge Journey. It's going to be Starting next week we're going to start looking at houses to move into. Our lease is going to be up soon and with the 4th child coming we need extra space. Finding a house to rent won't be much fun cause we're on a limited budget, but it'll still be exciting. After we move we're going to start purchasing baby items and I'm definitely looking forward to that

Love I'm glad you got to hold her. I agree babies can sense whatever you are feeling. I can't imagine having one that early and all the trials she has to overcome. My cousins baby was born at 1 and half pounds. They would get negative news all the time at the nicu but she was a fighter and made it through everything! Her mom pumped breast milk to give to her and that helped her a lot. Ill pray for her to overcome everything and gain weight.

Love2314 - 109 days ago
Babylove5 No, she's my 8th long story short. They told me I'd never have kids. I met my husband and well now I have 8 beautiful children. She was born 12/23 I've never been so scared in my life. She's fighting and that's all I can ask for. Good news is I was able to hold her for the first time last night. I had to hold back tears I try not to get emotional around her as I believe babies can sense that.

sher-baby - 110 days ago
Ladies!! Before you indulge in your New Years festivities, have a safe and happy (alcohol free) New Year's Eve!!!

Sher-baby - 110 days ago
oh my goodness love2314!! I'm soo sorry. I couldn't imagine how hard this must be for you. being that she was born so early the NICU is the best place for her and hopefully she really thrives so you can bring her home as soon as possible!! soo sorry! and wish you and your baby girl all the best!! **hugs**

Babylove5 - 110 days ago
Love I know its hard. My 1st son was in the nicu due to stress during delivery. They gave me Cytotec to induce me and it cause bleeding, which caused him to have air bubbles in his lungs from the stress of delivery. He was only there a few days but it was stressful. They will take good care of her. I hope you have been able to pump some milk for her, itwill help her immune system. When was your baby girl born? Was this your first?

Love2314 - 110 days ago
I had my baby girl at 25 weeks, looks like she will be in the NICU for a few months :(. I feel like I am all alone is there anyone else out there going through what I am? Not that i wish this on anyone, as this is probably the hardest thing I've ever had to go through. I'd love to chat with you. Maybe we could help ease each others minds.

Dec Baby - 110 days ago
Aww supermom...hopefully you're just having an off day! If I've had a few busy days or late nights, it tends to catch up and I know that I have to slow down and catch up on a few extra zzzz's As for the name saga...we haven't quite got there yet😁

sher-baby - 111 days ago
Makala- I know I know!!! It could be worse but it just really freaked me out to see an 8lb increase...I was expecting 5lbs but 8lbs threw me for a loop.

alanaw - 111 days ago
We haven't decided on a name. :) We can't agree, so I told my husband..I will just name him in the hospital. What are your top name choices?

sher-baby - 111 days ago
Ugh...I hope so!! I know I gotta gain weight for the baby to be healthy...I just don't want to loose control of my weigh gain. So 2lbs a week took me by surprise! Hopefully it's not this drastic going forward! Ooh boy!!!....😫

babylove5 - 111 days ago
Lol...Sher you are right where you are suppose to be! You want a healthy baby so you Hv to eat well! It freaks me out to though, but it falls off after birth, so no worries.

sher-baby - 111 days ago
Omg! I've gained 8lbs in 4weeks.....eeeeeekkkkk!!!! And I'm 9pbs heavier now than I was at this point with my daughter!!! Oh god save me!! Oh man!!! Uugh! So this means in total my weight gain is 19lbs...I know it could be worse but I'm scared I'm going to blow up in the last trimester!

sher-baby - 111 days ago
Congrats alanaw! I too am having a boy. There are lots of us actually having boys

sher-baby - 111 days ago
Dec baby- we don't have any names yet either. DH and I can't seem to agree on any. When do u start seeing ur dr every 2 weeks??? I thought it was after week 28? I have my ob appt this morning then a well needed hair I can look like shamu with a pretty hair style! Lol!

Dec Baby - 111 days ago
Congratulations alanaw! Lucky you to get a baby boy;) Have you all got names worked out? If you don't mind please tell...I need all the inspiration I can get! I feel like I've spent hours online researching names! I had my OB app. as well as glucose test today! Everything is going well so far...I thought baby was head down but OB said it was head up and to the right side! I'm also measuring spot on for dates, which is a relief! (My last baby was big) My next app. will be at 32 weeks:)) feel free to drop into week 28 or 29....singing, 'I'm all by myself' hehe! Nah, I'm glad I can pop in here for some company;)

alanaw - 112 days ago
Hi there..I check in..everytime, I get chance, welcome to week 25. We are having a baby boy. This is my third, child. :)

sher-baby - 112 days ago
Based on my lmp and my US's, I'm measuring on point; give or take a few days but nothing crazy. Not worries ladies...all will work out for u! I feel like I will go early. I will be surprised if I have this baby in April. I had a dream last night that I have birth early to a lil cubby baby...he weighed 6lbs something oz. but again, I couldn't breast feed! I guess we shall see. So far no peeing when I cough or anything, just when I sneeze!

babylove5 - 112 days ago
Mandy I did that with my last baby. I had my other son at 35 weeks so I assumed he would be here early too. I was wrong, not only that but he was late I was 41 weeks with my fourth baby and not happy. I am just going to plan on 40 weeks this time so I'm not going nuts, but then I worry I might go early. :-/

mandykat760 - 112 days ago
I have this idea of my due date is wrong. It's an odd gut feeling supported by measuring a week and a half ahead. Plus my weight gain would match up better with 27 weeks pregnant. I really need to stop obsessing over it because I'll be in trouble later if the baby doesn't come. Haha

sher-baby - 113 days ago
Anyone else peeing when they sneeze!!!! Ugh....wth!!!!

babylove5 - 113 days ago
I had breast augmentation 4 years ago after breastfeeding 3 babies I needed that full look back. I went from a b to a c, so nothing major. I was able to breastfeed with no problem after that, so you should be able to also. Reduction is not as invasive. I'm going to need another if these start sagging.

sher-baby - 113 days ago
Ooh...ok, ya I haven't breast fed in almost 6yrs and I had a breast reduction about 4yrs ago so I'm hoping that I can still breast feed because of that. I occasionally get that let down feeling but nothing leaks

babylove5 - 113 days ago
My milk hasn't come in or anything but when I snuggle with my 2 yr old I can sometimes feel the let down and some will trickle out. It happens after I get out of the shower too but its probably because I just quit over a year ago.

sher-baby - 113 days ago
My nesting seems to have calmed down a bit, for now! I had a dream last night the I had the baby and couldn't breast feed... I was hooked up to the pump and nothing was coming out!! I was sooo stressed in my dream, I wonder if it raised my blood pressure while I was sleeping. My boobs have also gotten bigger but I haven't started lactating or leaking at all...hopefully that dream wasn't telling me something! My dreams tend to talk to me!! Ugh!! I'm still getting BH everyday, several times a day. I plan on letting my dr know on Monday. Hopefully my cervix is still closed but I don't think he will check!

babylove5 - 113 days ago
I will be glad to remove all the décor and clutter too. I feel like since the kids all got these new toys I need to donate old ones to goodwill. I also have clothes I need to donate. I have been sanitizing all the parts to my medela breast pump too. My boobs feel heavier now, so I thought I should go ahead and get it out. I would love to pump out some of the milk I am already producing but I know that wouldn't be wise. I started spotting after sex the other day and completely freaked thinking I was going into labor but it is from the increased blood flow to the cervix. Everything is still closed!!! Im not having hardly any Braxton hicks either.

mandykat760 - 113 days ago
I feel like a giant weight has been lifted off my shoulders. Christmas is over and I can kick out all the decor! Haha I can't stand the clutter, nesting has seriously kicked into high gear. If it wasn't snowing I would be pulling weeds and landscaping at this point. My family just left and I'm already sanitizing again. Some of them were fighting a cold, my hands are so dry from washing mine every two minutes.

sher-baby - 113 days ago
I'm glad you all had a great Christmas...we did as well. The AM was busy because we had about 11ppl +a 70lb pit bull in my house for breakfast!!! My daughter tore through all her gifts from us in about 30mins!!! She had a great Christmas but was prob most excited to see that Santa ate her cookies. Lol but over all it was a good day. In jan it will be baby planning time! I mean, it's always been baby planning but the last few months we were really focused on my daughters birthday and that that is out of the way, baby planning will be in full swing. Ps. It's 3:19am and I can't sleep...again!

babylove5 - 114 days ago
Machala I love it! That is so cute that she got your favorite hot sauce and being pregnant with a boy I know i crave it too! Christmas is over! It was great with all the boys going wild over their toys. Next year it will be even more busy with our babies here. My little guy is two and he was so much fun to watch this Christmas!!! He had a huge grin on his face when he saw his toys! Those are my favorite parts of Christmas, and I love the chess pies and chocolate.. Lol.

emefa - 115 days ago
Merry Christmas 😊, this chicken taste so good

sher-baby - 116 days ago
I make my own body butter, so I use that too!!! It does help but when I'm in the middle of the mall and my belly starts to itch, it's kinda awkward to just whip up my shirt to rub on some body butter!! Lmao! Could u imagine?!?...not cute! Lol

sher-baby - 116 days ago
Oh and I have an itchy belly...that also drives me nuts at night when I'm trying to sleep!

sher-baby - 116 days ago
I have a heating pad and I have to bring it everywhere with me!!! Like I'm 195yrs old lol. My back is what hurts the most and my pubic bone!!! Just changing positions at night causes it to ache...but my back pain deff trumps my pubic bone pain! Hopefully it doesn't get much worse for you. A heating pad should deff help you.

sher-baby - 116 days ago
Haha...omg my dd was asking every day if Santa is coming today!!! Now I can finally say 'YESS!!!...tonight!!!' Lol I have my glucose test some time in January, I'll prob get the paper work for it on the 29th. It's very quiet in here...kinda sucks! I too feel this lil guy moving and kicking up a storm...I can't sit up straight because If he kicks, he usually kicks my ribs. When I recline, he has more space and it feels much better. I'm also goin for a prenatal massag in jan....Oooh does my back need it!!!

sher-baby - 117 days ago
25 weeks tomorrow...for anyone who wants to chat! Lol

BethQ - 125 days ago
25 down, 15 to go.

Hopin4ABoy31 - 131 days ago
Hello ladies of week 25! Today was quite the exciting today! Had my second ultrasound which confirmed that baby is a girl and that she is doing awesome and is pretty big! She measured around 2 pounds already! She seems big cause when she kicks I can see it through my clothes!! I am so over being pregnant though. I have a perpetually stuffy nose and I can never drink enough to quench my thirst!! I'm afraid I may end up having GD but I'm trying not to think about it too much, if I do I'll cross that bridge when I come to it. I am super excited to get this all over with since this will be my last time!!! I cannot wait to meet this little person. Hope everyone else is doing well!

theNewMomVal - 132 days ago
Deebo I'm sorry you're on bedrest but I'm here for you when you're bored :) Think of all the fun you'll get to have with your baby once they're born!! :))) You got this!!!!!

Dec Baby - 136 days ago
Hello week 25! Nice to know that the medical profession would actively try to save our babies if born now...but please little baby stay inside for another 15 weeks! My baby bump is looking pretty massive...I'm carrying all out the front! The other day I had someone ask if the baby was going to be born soon, haha It was embarrassing to have to say that I still had 15 weeks to go...hehe

lissie**** - 214 days ago
I'm sorry things are so rough this pregnancy for you!!! I just feel so bad for you. I had a pregnancy that was hell like that! So i hate to see you go through something like it. Seems so far away but it will all be over I promise! Just need baby to get here and be healthy! And for you to recuperate!

deebo - 214 days ago
I did my stupid glucose test today, ugh! I opted to just do the 2 hour one, because I always seem to fail the short one. I was at the lab for over three hours because I decided it was a good idea to go in the morning.. Woops. I had some light bleeding yesterday after having a crazy coughing attack. It's already stopped, thankfully. Come on 37 weeks, LOL! I'm ready to be done. This house needs such a scrubbing, and men just don't do it the way I like. I'm still dealing with wicked depression, it's hard. I'm trying to learn French as a time killer, but I have a hard time concentrating. Oh yeah, and sciatica BLOWS. HOPE EVERYONE IS DOING BETTER THAN I AM LOL!

lissie**** - 218 days ago
I know it's hard with LO. I had a 3 year old and a 16-20 month old. But I wasn't allowed to do ANYTHING b/c of severity so I had to be away sometimes b/c the babies don't understand. It was so hard :(

lissie**** - 218 days ago
I hated that I couldn't clean! It's awful!

deebo - 219 days ago
I wish I had time to read! I have a 3 and 4 year old.. My 3 year old spends the entire day tormenting me LOL AND SHE KNOWS I CANT CHASE HER AROUND! So as soon as her dad goes in another room I'm super frustrated lmfao! She's lucky I love her!! My 4 year old just started school, sso that's emotional too.. I haven't been able to walk her to school like I've always wanted to.. I make her lunches while sitting down lmfao. The mess is driving me nuts! And now I have a cold! Ahhhh. Lmfao. I feel super lonely, no one comes to see me, so I just text people furiously. No one really wants to chat at length because lmfao ALL I DO IS COMPLAIN! I wish my pops was still alive, he'd come visit me, and let me complain on the phone forever and not care lmao.

Juliemom24 - 219 days ago
Deebo, that sounds pretty awful! I would probably spend my entire day on pinterest and get pretty bored. Here's hoping you find some good reading material and that December comes reeeeeeeally fast!

lissie**** - 219 days ago
deebo// I hated bedrest! I was put on strict bedrest (hospitalized for a while first) at 20 weeks with my 3rd. I hadn't read that much--ever. Sorry for you. Of course it is worth it! :)

deebo - 220 days ago
I'm going crazy on bed rest!!!! I cry so much omfg.. I FEEL SO LONELY LOL

lissie**** - 221 days ago
Juliesmom//I do better when the kids have a schedule. But I'm not so good at keeping one in the summer. I actually am enjoying our routine being reset with the start of school. **Mel** My first was head down early on and stayed head down until I was full term. Then she did a complete flip up into breech but flipped back down like a somersault but when she was nearly 7 pounds. It was painful! Once my others turned they stayed. Though baby #3 didn't turn head down until at 34-35 weeks. I was getting worried.
