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.

I had a growth scan today and my little man is 2lbs even! He is in the 24th percentile. He is also no long breech so I hope he decides to stay head down!

Baby Carter has been measuring a few weeks ahead for a while. My other babies have been on the small side (6lbs). Im scared this will be a big baby. Im doing another natural birth so Im hoping for an easy labor. My first was 3 hours, second 2 hours, and my third was 30 minutes!!

ive been measuring 4 weeks small for a while. I had a growth scan on monday. My baby is fine. She is on track to be about 7lbs at birth if she follows the growth curves. Try not to worry too much ~(easy to say i know) hope all goes well :-)

Went to doc yesterday and I am measuring 3 weeks small. I have a rapid growth ultrasound next week. Has anyone had this before? Should I be worried? Very worried!!!:(

Even though I'm supposed to be on bedrest I went grocery shopping today( I had too!!) As I was checking out I had the most HORRIBLE, gut wrenching, take your breath away contraction just as I was putting my gallon of milk on the conveyor, needless to say I dropped the milk and was surprised to see how high milk can splash. 95% of my groceries got covered in milk splatter...Total fail today.

I feel like I have blown up over the last week or so. My fundal height is enough now that I am getting short of breath and I can't eat a whole meal because there is no room!

Waitingtoexhale- I already told hubby I wanted them so I'm hoping he will get them for me :)
So hre I am at my Dr's office waiting to get blood drawn for the diabetes test. I have been here since 8 am & it is now almost 10:30. I was told not to eat or drink anything after midnight last night so I am seriously starving! Some girl just came into the wating room with a plate of pancakes! Ugh I could scream at her! It smells amazing & my stomach is yelling at me. I want to tell her to take the damn pancakes outside so I don't have to smell them anymore haha

Raelynnr- as far as I know, 3 so far. Don't have a clue if there will b more in the future. Hope u like them though. ;)
Raelynnr143 - 21 days ago
Waitingtoexhale- I'm definitely going to have to look into getting those books! Are there only going to be 3? Maybe I should wait until the 3rd comes out & buy them all together ;)
waitingtoexhale - 26 days ago
Raelynnr143- I loved the Fifty Shades series too and was soooo sad when it ended!! Just thought I'd suggest Sylvia Day's Crossfire series. Kinda similar, but different enough that you want to keep reading and not put it down. I loved Christian and now I love Gideon too!! Can't wait for the third book to come out June 4th!!
Raelynnr143 - 26 days ago
27 weeks today & finallly finished the 50 shades of Grey trilogy :) Have to say I LOVED the books & am so sad I finished reading them already ;)

Morning ladies! I am soooo glad I am not alone in the multiple bathroom trips during the night!!! Of course once I sleepwalk to the potty baby girl decides its a good time to start dancing around lol :) Between my 23 month old son and her I do not see a good nights sleep any time soon! Oh well who needs sleep anyway ;) Also my belly is insanely round and hard this time...I don't remember being this uncomfortable this soon with my son...I thought gaining less weight and being in better shape would help! I just keep thinking I only have to survive 2 more months (rounding down makes it sound better) ha ha! Have a nice day!

SO ready for the next trimester to fly by!! We are up by 6 am every morning anyway, to get DD1, DD2, DSD to school on time and get DH to work. This is my 4th pregnancy, and I developed gall stones a few weeks ago. Plus, the kid has decided already to be a world winning soccer player! LOL, however, only pelvic pain I had was with my son, not any of the girls, including this one... the older 3 girls are easier since they are 10, 8.5 and almost 6, but my son is 23 months and ALL OVER ME! He thinks I am a jungle gym and wants to push and pull me everywhere. Pregnancy got me laid off from my sales job, so thankfully at home, but its getting difficult to clean and chase my son. Plus, our lease is up 2 weeks post-baby and we are moving cross country at that time.... from Florida to Utah.... wish me luck!

im feeling sooooooo tired..
tsubasa - 30 days ago
No, I wish!!! I am a primary school teacher so I have to get up early (6:30) and my baby has decided that's the time she likes to get up too. Sigh...
yoki - 30 days ago
Tsubasa- Wow you def have it worse than me, I bet you can't wait to have this baby, Do you stay at home with her? Just wondering if you are able to at least take a little nap during the day. My almost 3 year old has been waking up at 6am everyday! So I usually take naps with him in the afternoon.
tsubasa - 30 days ago
Oh and while I'm on the sleeping topic, how the hell are you supposed to elevate your head and shoulders for acid reflux, lie on your left side, AND elevate your swollen feet? I could understand doing head and feet while lying on your back, but that would make breathing pretty darn near impossible right now.
tsubasa - 30 days ago
Yoki I have a terrible time sleeping too. Acid reflux, nose allergies, baby kicking me, have to pee constantly, and to top it all off, my 21 month daughter still wakes up during the night quite a bit recently. Ugh...
yoki - 30 days ago
Hello ladies! No bruised pubic bone here but my hips are bruised every morning when I wake up from turning from side to side at night : ( I also get pressure every now and again (feels like the baby is pushing down) really uncomfortable.. And I'm already not being able to sleep all night because I'm constantly getting up to go to the bathroom all night and tossing and turning because I cant get comfortable.. Im so ready for week 39 to get here lol ( I get a C-section at 39 weeks)
preciousbabybump - 31 days ago

tsubasa - 34 days ago
Thrilled to be in third trimester now! Anyone else feeling like your pubic bone is super bruised? I've been feeling that for a long time but it was super sore today. This kid sure does kick!
