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

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.

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 - 7 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 - 35 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 - 37 days ago
hello alllllllllll

afshanm07 - 40 days ago
Week 27 yeah

mammaramirez - 50 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 - 50 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 - 53 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 - 53 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 - 53 days ago
idk his dad picked it....I don't think I really wanna pick the name until I meet him

mammaramirez - 54 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 - 54 days ago
Msjenn - that stinks!!! Hope you get to feeling better soon... summer time being pregnant AND sick is not a good combination

msjenn727 - 55 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 - 55 days ago
Monica - why don't you like the name?

monica28 - 56 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 - 56 days ago
3rd trimester!!!!!!!! Anyone else feel like their ribs are bruised already? Mine are KILLING ME! - 56 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! - 57 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 - 59 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!

mommy97101114 - 77 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'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 - 97 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 - 97 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 - 98 days ago
And old... Lol

stublit - 98 days ago
My husband suffers sciatic nerve pain but his is from getting fat ;)

baby ali - 98 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 - 98 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 - 98 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 - 98 days ago
Epidural is a swear word to me haha all you need is good positioning and remember to breathe : )

tlc - 98 days ago
I'm pro-vaginal but not pro-natural (meaning without epidural). No way!!!! :-)

funtimemum80 - 98 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 - 98 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.
