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

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 - 8 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 - 11 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 - 11 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

monica28 - 11 days ago
idk his dad picked it....I don't think I really wanna pick the name until I meet him

mammaramirez - 12 days ago
Glucose test results came back normal. My iron levels are too low, so it's extra iron supplements for me for the rest of the pregnancy and probably until I'm done breast feeding..... but other than that... everything is good.

mammaramirez - 12 days ago
Msjenn - that stinks!!! Hope you get to feeling better soon... summer time being pregnant AND sick is not a good combination

msjenn727 - 13 days ago
Well, had a dr's appt, but couldn't make it due to being sick with this horrible cold, runny nose and chest pain, fevers and chills ugh! Sucks being sick in the summer. Can't wait to feel better!!!

mammaramirez - 13 days ago
Monica - why don't you like the name?

monica28 - 14 days ago
Hey ladies, how is everyone doing? we're getting close to the end. I've chosen the name Cordelle Antonio....not to really happy about it.

mammaramirez - 14 days ago
3rd trimester!!!!!!!! Anyone else feel like their ribs are bruised already? Mine are KILLING ME!

lauracwilliams1245@gmail.com - 15 days ago
It's been a while since I posted but we decided to name our sweet girl Ansley Catherine! Can't wait to meet her!

ecat_10@hotmail.com - 15 days ago
Mommy - just have to say I LOVE the name Keller! You should definitely use it. I am partial to the middle name Logan as that's my second sons name :)

msjenn727 - 17 days ago
YAY! 3rd trimester! Hello 27 weeks. Only 12 more weeks until my c- section and i will finally have my little prince in my arms!

MOMIIB - 19 days ago

Wooo hooo, 27wks today, last trimester!!!!!! Very excited that we are getting closer! Next ob appt on 7/3 and I also have a 3d/4d sono on 7/5....so flipping excited!!!!!! :-)

mommy97101114 - 35 days ago
Ok, so I will be 28 weeks tomorrow! Yay!! Just curious as to what you guys think of the name Keller (Helen Keller's last name...she is one of my most favorite people in history!) But I have also come up with these other names using Keller...they are Kelson, Keldon, Kelton, or Kellian (prounouced Kellen)...just curious as to what you ladies think...I have been trying to come up with a boy name for months. I love the idea of calling him Kell for short...it's different and I haven't really ever heard any boys with these names. I want something unique. The middle names I am tossing up in the air to go with one of these names are Mason, Chase, Levi, Logan, and Tayden.

baby ali - 55 days ago
kristen- sounds painful ouch! yeah true say, ppl experiences r different but wen it goes well it's perfect. my nightmear was with the epidural never again

kristen27 - 56 days ago
I had a natural birth with my first and it was HORRIBLE! baby was 2 weeks early and 8.5 lbs and I ripped 3 ways and screamed bloody murder. So I never EVER want another natural birth. Guess some people's experiences are different! =)

stublit - 56 days ago
And old... Lol

stublit - 56 days ago
My husband suffers sciatic nerve pain but his is from getting fat ;)

baby ali - 56 days ago
I had epidural with my first 3and a half years ago and I suffer from sciatica now the nerve on my left leg is affected, anyone else suffer from and aches and pains after epi?? I would never take it again in my life, I had back pains and spine pains several months after and now got sciatica which come and go

baby ali - 56 days ago
natural birth isn't as bad as ppl make it out to be, I was expecting deathly pains but to be honest my previous baby was born I didn't get the chance to have gas and air but I was expecting worse than wat it was, pain isn't that bad u can manage it it's within ur capability I had the baby didn't need no stitches nothing had a shower afterwards and came home 2 hours later was a joy and hoping to god for a natural birth again the reward at the end is magic :0) would always go with natural birth now, I guess if u dnt experience it u dnt no wats it like and wen u do it's an amazing feeling

stublit - 56 days ago
I'm also pro-vag... With epidural!! I've always had pitocin so not sure of pain magement with natural contractions. I go as long as I can without the epidural but usually when they start the pitocin, I call for an epidural! My first was 8 lbs 7 oz and I'm pretty small, thin, 5'3. I had to have an episiotomy with my first but he came out without shoulder dystocia or other complications. I've never had any complications recovering either. I was in the shower an hour after giving birth both times. I'd have been in sooner but my babies love to breastfeed for 45 minutes! They come out hungry!! lol. I've had great birth experiences with epidurals- lots of joking and laughing with family while in labor, easy birth, easy recovery. I am still jealous of those women who do it naturally. There's a part of me that wants a natural birth but I just don't think it's for me! Maybe if I'd have had a bad experience I would be more up for a natural birth? I have nothing but respect for women who do it naturally though!!!

funtimemum80 - 56 days ago
Epidural is a swear word to me haha all you need is good positioning and remember to breathe : )

tlc - 56 days ago
I'm pro-vaginal but not pro-natural (meaning without epidural). No way!!!! :-)

funtimemum80 - 56 days ago
My 1st baby was 9.7 lbs I wish I could say he slipped right out but his shoulders got stuck and he was eventually forceped out , no breaks fortunately , my. 5th baby was delivered breech she wasn't forceped as I was at home but the midwife used her arms and hands as help that way, where there is a will there is a way as they say . If you desire a natural birth you shall get one, it hurts.... A lot and things can happen but recovery is so much easier I'm on my feet instantly , having a bath and bending and lifting , totally pro au natural births so many have c sections for no reason , they miss out on the magic!!

tlc - 56 days ago
My husband just reminded me that he was a third baby for his mother, and he was over 9 pounds and broke his shoulder bone coming out. My second daughter has his shoulders. I keep saying that I want to go full term with this one right to the end and go into labor naturally, but I forgot about the fact that the baby will be bigger. My broad shoulder girl was taken by C because she was breech so I didn't run into the problem with her.

tlc - 56 days ago
Just had my blood test to confirm RH- status and will have the Rhogam shot on Thursday. I just realized that the scheduling nurse obviously got it wrong and scheduled me for the shot during week 27 rather than 28. I'm not even going to mention it. I'll be 2 days shy of being 28 weeks when they give me the actual shot and I'm sure that's fine. After all, due dates are just estimates anyway.

stublit - 59 days ago
A two month old baby talking... Total pregnancy dream. Lol. I used to dream a lot about death. I was told it's a good thing and just means there are big changes coming. Not sure how true that is but it fit me pretty well at the time.

funtimemum80 - 59 days ago
I've been dreaming a lot about death lately, people dying and taking there own lives, I woke up in tears last week because of it, have had none about the bab, usually I dream about what they may look like Ect

jackie87 - 59 days ago
I had a dream I had a boy, too (prematurely), and I just kept working and didn't tell my boss or family. Bahaha. Gotta love bizarre pregnancy dreams!

stublit - 59 days ago
I dreamed I had a boy and then it was 2 months old and he told me he wants to be named Harry... I can't remember the middle name. Just thought it was funny.

jackie87 - 60 days ago
Ali, I took it more as a backhanded 'compliment.' She told me I looked like I had a 'ponch' before I was even pregnant and to me that's just rude.

baby ali - 60 days ago
jackie- she only cares about u that's y she says it may be and at least she tells u u look great :0) my mil will never compliment me or ask me how I am or anything or even say I look tired, my mil is hard faced twisted women :0( it's good to hear u get along with ur mil it's good to have a good relationship with mils

jackie87 - 60 days ago
I'm apparently a bloated whale. My MIL asked me if I was getting checked for fluid retention because I looked 'swollen and tired' to her. I get along great with her, but telling a pregnant lady she looks swollen and/or bloated is a major faux pas in my opinion, not to mention the constant mention of 'how tired you look' she went on and on about. I don't wear makeup, I work full time whilst being a FT SAHM, and I'm 6-1/2 months pregnant. Damn straight I'm tired. Gah. Just had to rant. It's amazing how one person can just completely take away your self-esteem/make you feel like a piece of poo. Oh but she ends with, 'you do still look great, though!' Thanks. :/

baby ali - 60 days ago
my baby is lying low maybe that's why I go toilet all the time

funtimemum80 - 60 days ago
TNT- wow rib action! Mine likes to lay low, tmi but she must press against my bowels as I'm constantly going to the toilet haha, I'm not sure if this one is even head down, I got a feeling she moves around, I feel her in all sorts of positions, my torso is long and I've been stretched a few times I just know there is so much more room to grow and move, she does however go quiet if touched , so if she's too active esp,at night I will rub her until she stops, with my 3rd baby she had hiccups so much I would find her back and rub until it settled, awwww we women are so lucky to experience this wonderfullness : ))

tlc - 61 days ago
fun - I just posted something similar in week 26. Some of the moves are so abrupt and forceful that I can't help but gasp out loud!

tnt-surprisebaby2 - 61 days ago
lil.pigz- I had the worst heartburn all day yesterday; it felt like a hot boulder was in my chest lol. Alas, it was all my fault, because the night before I'd eaten 7 jalapeno poppers and spaghetti with extra sauce. Yes, it's delicious, but what the heck was I thinking? Fun-my belly does the same thing! If I prop my arms on my belly, he very vigorously pushes against them until I take them off lol and when I'm in the bathtub I'll pour warm water directly on my belly, and he just rolls and kicks lol. It's getting to where I can feel him against my ribs, however, and I just know that now there'll be nowhere else to go but OUT. It's getting cramped in there!
