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.

Everyone has such great news this week! Angel, I'm so happy for you that you found renters! I know it can be such a stressful situation. June, congrats (still) on the little boy! I took some time this morning and got baby's nook started. We don't know if it's a boy or girl, so we are planning on keeping baby in our room until they are old enough to share with big brothers or sister. Bad news is, I really strained my back today. Between doing baby stuff and getting our Christmas tree and decorating, my body is shot! I'm not as full of energy this time around. 26 weeks tomorrow! Official freak out time!

Had my anatomy scan today... Everything is okay with baby... We also double checked the sex- upon my request of course,just to be sure and yes we still have a lil penis in there, lol... The greatest challenge I have experienced this month of November however is Severe heartburn, especially the past few days... It drives me crazy..

@angelfree how did it go with getting your flu shot? @kentsmommy did you end up getting yours? Just read your posts in week 22 or 23. I have been so stressed out about whether to get mine. I always have gotten one before and once when pregnant in second trimester and once in the first which was a miscarriage. I am terrified of the flu and also of the flu shot. I work in health care so I am a little higher risk. I just can't find peace one way or another with this. Read some horror stories on line about flu shot and pregnancy a couple times and I am so scared now.

The 3rd trimester dates are according to this site, so I don't really know for sure, but it's just around the corner--oh boy! I hope they don't ask me to start counting kicks. I don't think I could keep up. My little guy is pretty active. At my last appt., the midwife said that I should feel him about once/day by now. I feel him all day long! I'm so excited too!!! Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday from the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade to stuffing my face full of turkey! Also, this is our first Thanksgiving as a married couple, so it's extra special--whoohoo!!! This weekend, we are moving--yuck! Good news is: we found renters--yay!

15weeks to go, yay!!! this pregnancy is starting to fly by so fast... November has been such a short month for me... I bought a few stuff for myself and baby this past weekend, so its more real now... but i find shopping so boring and tiresome this time around as compared to during my last pregnancy, i find it so exhausting moving around to look for stuff...
