Born & Birth stories

You are now in the third trimester, and last, of your pregnancy! Your baby's crown-to-rump length is about 9.6 inches and your baby's total length is approximately 15.3 inches! Your baby now weighs about 2 pounds 3 ounces and is going to grow rapidly during this last trimester! Your uterus is about 2.8 inches above your bellybutton.

If your baby were born now, it would have an 85% chance of surviving. Even though your baby is still not fully developed, she would be well within the limits of premature viability. You still have approximately 13 weeks left of your pregnancy, and during this time your baby must continue to grow and develop. If your baby was born at this time, she would have several complications that would require special attention. Because babies do not have adequate amounts of fat at this time, your baby would have to be kept inside of an incubator for warmth. Because the air sacs in your baby's lungs do not yet have surfactant, she would require an artificial respirator. Your baby's brain, liver and immune system still need to develop more also.

Make sure you take good care of your teeth. So-called `pregnancy gingivitis` affects most pregnant women to some degree, and generally occurs in the second trimester. If you already have gingivitis, the condition is likely to worsen during pregnancy.

Your baby can develop hiccups

I can't hardly believe that I will be holding my 6th baby in only 13 short weeks!!! I am starting to retain lots of water and am feeling a tad miserable these days, and very bitchy. I feel so bad for my poor husband.

lissie**** - 81 days ago
I just can't imagine what you are going through!!! :( Big hugs! And don't feel bad for feeling that way! When I get overwhelmed I think, uh oh what am I doing. Or when I'm just mad at DH! And you are in an extremely painful situation!!! :( In several different ways too. I sometimes have had a hard time bonding with babies until I meet them, serve them and have a chance to fall in love with them. And I'm a mushy mommy. But when life is overwhelming it can be hard to get that feeling with the baby you haven't even met. At least for me it has been that way. But maybe all the drama with your pregnancy you can actually more fully bond with baby than without the bleeding etc. For me I just realized that baby was a little miracle. Hugged him every day and cried a lot of tears of gratitude. Still do just hug him and marvel that he is here and well. (now he's 3) I'm so sorry about your DH betrayal. That is unspeakable to me. Just horrible and it makes me so sad for you. On top of everything else that makes you vulnerable and feel helpless!

deebo - 87 days ago
But don't take the 'wish I wasn't pregnant' the wrong way, this baby will be loved and cared for just the same as my others. I do want her, and I want to meet her.. And somehow I hope when I see her, I will know what I'm supposed to do.. Haha maybe putting a little too much on an infant..

deebo - 87 days ago
I wish I had someone to help me, I've been going through sooo much on top of this bed rest.. Everyone has pretty much abandoned me (my 'partner' cheated on me) and yeahhhh no one to help, so there's just too much in my head. I find myself wishing I never got pregnant.. Even though it was planned (before I knew about the infedility) .. It's not an easy road I walk, and now I do it alone. Who knows if I'm even going to stay with my kids father when baby comes. It's odd, I have no plans anymore LOL.. Just trying to get through each day. I broke down and did my floors anyways this morning. I feel so much happier now.

lissie**** - 87 days ago
I've never heard the clicking but I have heard a few other women talk about it! It's the worst when you are on bedrest!!!! Baby will be here and you will be free again I promise!!!! I know it seems to drag on! I was on bedrest from 20 weeks till baby came with another pregnancy. I had two little ones and couldn't do much. It was horrible. It's worth it to resist doing too much! I'd clean your floors!! lol!!! I actually had some ladies help me clean mine while on bedrest!

deebo - 88 days ago
Whhhyyyyyy is this not over yeeettt lmao! Baby is beating my ass from the inside lmao! I want my follow up ultrasound, I want to clean my floors. Someone wanna come clean my floors?! LOL I am starting to nest, while on bed rest, it is seriously the WORST FEELING EVERrrrr. Also, does anyone else have this- sometimes when baby moves I hear a little clicking sound. I had this with one of my other pregnancies too, but my ob had no insight.. I have a different doctor this time around, so I'm going to ask at my next appointment :) 3 months left..

lissie**** - 93 days ago
I lived in TN, UT, CA and Spain previously. Oh and a summer in IL

lissie**** - 93 days ago
My sis is in AZ. I'm in NM and it is moderately hot but so sunny!!! One city I lived in here was triple digits ALL summer eek! Actually two of the cities I lived in were miserably hot here. But this one is really nice weather. I'm just so sensitive to the heat I wish I were in North Dakota for this pregnancy lol!

Juliemom24 - 95 days ago
I lived in AZ for a couple of years in college and I loved it. I'm originally from Seattle so anywhere that is sunny all the time makes me soooo happy. haha. I'm totally the same with the hot thing though. I used to get cold before kids and now I get hot so easily.

lissie**** - 95 days ago
I think I commented in 28 weeks about the ultrasound yesterday? I had fantastic results! Surprised the drs! :)))) So so happy!

lissie**** - 95 days ago
I miss cold weather. I used to live in UT and I didn't appreciate the weather at the time. It snowed a lot there. I've suffered triple digits all summer in some places I've lived since yuck! And since I've been prego the first time my body now acts like a heater. I get hot very easily. I used to get cold easily before I had babies.

Juliemom24 - 97 days ago
Lissie, today is the day right? I hope that the ultrasound shows a healthy baby girl. We did just move out west. So far, so good. Ask me again when it starts to snow and I may be whistling another tune;)

lissie**** - 99 days ago
We are getting closer! Still feels so long ha ha! But you know it has also gone by relatively quickly. A little slower since I found out about possible issues but time was flying by before that! Hope you are feeling well. \Juliesmom// are you all settled into your new place? didn't you move all the way out west?

Juliemom24 - 99 days ago
27 weeks today! I know it says third trimester but I'm never sure if it's this week or next. Either way we have three months left! Wohooooooo!

lissie**** - 100 days ago

Juliemom24 - 100 days ago
Haha, a three month old. That means they were really healthy, right? Letroise, I just went through dd's baby clothes to find anything gender neutral and it was very sparse. It was fun to reminisce on how little she was and I did pull out a few things that were borderline neutral. Boys can wear ruffles, right? haha.

lissie**** - 100 days ago
Lol the nurse announced that I had just given birth to a 3 month old

letroise11 - 101 days ago
Wow lissie sounds like you are giving birth to toddlers instead of newborns😔. I know we are wishing you the best on Monday. Juliemom I'm in the same boat I don't really have any girl clothes. My youngest girl is 3 and when I found out that my last was a boy I gave everything away. Now I have more boy clothes than I know what to so with but no girls infant clothes.

Juliemom24 - 101 days ago
Lissie, I would totally induce early too if I was in that situation (and let's be honest, I wish baby could come early this time... haha). How big were your first babies? You get to snuggle your baby in maybe TWO months! You must be nesting hard core. I just barely started nesting. I realized I have no boy clothes and since we just moved the chance of having a baby shower is slim so it's pretty much up to us and grandparents. Good thing we already have all the other essentials.

lissie**** - 102 days ago
Dr thinks a C-sec would be a good idea for me but I don't want to unless the previa is still going on. I want to try vaginal birth and do it earlier so that baby will likely be smaller than 10 pounds.

lissie**** - 102 days ago
shingles boo! Hopefully he'll have a speedy recovery. Taking baby early b/c my babies keep getting bigger and bigger and bigger! And the last one got stuck, destroyed me physically and it was horrible. Not safe for me to have one that big or bigger! If I felt baby wasn't as big for some unknown miraculous reason I can wait :) Other than that if the placenta previa doesn't resolve I'll have baby by 37-38 weeks at the very very latest. Probably more likely around 34-35 weeks b/c my contractions have started to get intense around then with my last two babies and it puts me at a good risk for bleeding out. I find out Monday if placenta has moved up or not or if it looks like it might. I've been dying waiting for this ultrasound! We also find out if baby has heart problems for sure. Monday can't come soon enough!

Juliemom24 - 102 days ago
Lissie, why are they inducing you early?

Juliemom24 - 102 days ago
Oh and just to shake things up at home, my poor husband has shingles. I feel pretty bad. I didn't know people still got things like that.

Juliemom24 - 102 days ago
They are going to have another ultrasound at 32 weeks to make sure everything is okay. I'm sure it is. I feel you on the weight thing. I was looking at old pictures today (like me 8 months ago) and it's like I'm a different person. It's hard to imagine going back to that size, haha. Sometimes I can't wait for baby to come so I can get my body back. I know, that's terrible.

lissie**** - 102 days ago
I weigh right now only 1-2 pounds less than I weighed on delivery day with my first. Boo. I still have 11.5-12 weeks max(will be induced early if we make it to 39 weeks)

lissie**** - 102 days ago
Aw you finally had your scan Juliesmom!!! I think the measurements can be off a lot of times. As long as baby stays on same growing curve. Are they concerned?

Juliemom24 - 104 days ago
I finnnnnnnnally had my anatomy scan today. Baby is still a boy and doing well:) Little boy is measuring a week and a half behind. Anyone else had a baby that was measuring small. I'm sure it's nothing but my mama heart worries...

2XMommy2B - 105 days ago
TY Juliemom!

Juliemom24 - 105 days ago
2Xmommy, I hope things get straightened out for you. It's good that you have a good attitude about it. I bet the next three months will fly by too.

Juliemom24 - 105 days ago
Letroise, that's so fun that you have a little pattern going on with all the names in your family. Lissie, I bet you are so excited that you can finally use that name. I'm surprised that you still like it too. I look back at names from my last pregnancy and half of them I don't like anymore.

2XMommy2B - 105 days ago
soo happy week 27 ladies - officially in the 3rd trimester WOOHOO!!! exactly 3 months left for me and I feel like time has been creeping by since week 20 :-/ BUT I got let go from my job about a week and half ago and I am still waiting to hear from unemployment benefits - please pray that I get the unemployment ladies as no one seems to want to hire a 6-7 month pregnant leasing agent!! other than that enjoying time at home with my 6 yr old and DH - even though I'm not sure if he is enjoying me being here quite as much!!

lissie**** - 106 days ago
We didn't know what name we would do if we were having another boy lol! We've had our daughters picked out for 7 years. We were battling over our first daughter and this is the other name :)

letroise11 - 106 days ago
Juilemom- we actually have the opposite problem boy names have been picked but a girls name not so much. Then again we already have so many girls I think we have used up all the names. Also with all of our kids they end with the a sound so that makes things tricky this far into it.

Juliemom24 - 109 days ago
Mommy2mason, those are all really cute names. I have a niece named Lainee and she is darling. We also had Brielle on our list for our last baby. Baby boys names seem so much harder for some reason. We are having a hard time loving one name.

mommy2mason - 114 days ago
Kenzie is a super cute name! My SO and I cannot agree on any names, but its narrowed down to Jaina, Lainey, Brielle and Kinleigh. The girls are fraternal - two placentas, two separate sacs. I hope you feel better soon.

JezzicaRabbit1 - 115 days ago
So happy to be in the last trimester. I have been sick since Friday so have been overly tired. I hope that I am only this tired because I am sick. Mommy2mason Nov 3rd will be here before you know it. I had to be induced with my first at 41 weeks so I am thinking I will probably go past my due date again. I am due on thanksgiving and We have our fingers crossed for a nov baby. We are having a girl and the top name on our list right now is Kenzie. Have you decided on names for your girls? How exciting to be having twins! Do they know if they are identical yet?

mommy2mason - 117 days ago
Well, the third trimester is officially here! The girls are growing and doing great. I get to schedule my c-section next week - looks like we'll be meeting our daughters on November 3rd. It seems so close, yet so far away. I'm really starting to get bigger and bigger each day. Im hungry all the time. My sciatic nerve pain is unbearable sometimes. It feels like lightening strikes me in the butt, and shoots down my leg. Anyone else have this going on? It started out randomly, but now its a constant ache. Overall I do feel well though. I can tell my energy is slowing weaning down. I'm really, really hoping I will feel well enough to take my 4 year old trick or treating this year. He is already so excited to go. How are you ladies feeling? Do you have names picked out? Is anyone keeping the gender a surprise?

bonitadiane - 145 days ago
Yeah!! Third trimester. Cant believe we are at our final stretch. Still feeling pretty good. Not looking forward to taking my glucose test this week. But needs to get done.

matoks - 147 days ago
hello alllllllllll

afshanm07 - 150 days ago
Week 27 yeah

mammaramirez - 160 days ago
monica - I'm shooting to have it done August 9th (I'll be almost 32 weeks) so we can see his little chunky face. Once you get past 33 weeks it becomes pointless because the baby is too crowded in there, you won't get enough movement to get good images.

monica28 - 160 days ago
when are you doing your 3d ultrasound. this my third baby. I've never had one. I told myself this time around I was going to indulge into everything because this is defiantly my last baby

msjenn727 - 163 days ago
Mamma- Thanks hun! I still feel like crap and my nose doesn't want to stop running. My taste buds aren't working and my throat and chest hurts due to my coughing. Other than that, I'll be 28 weeks tomorrow, so i'm sure next week my dr will send for my glucose testing!

mammaramirez - 163 days ago
monica - I think that's my husband's problem, he's hesitant on choosing a name for this baby... I think he wants to see him first.. I'm hoping that the 3d ultrasound will get him to at least give me some suggestions for names to be able to negotiate with lol
