Born & Birth stories

At this point in your pregnancy, your baby's crown-to-rump length is approximately 10.4 inches and the total length of your baby is around 16.7 inches. Your baby weighs about 2.7 pounds and continues to grow every day. If you measure from your bellybutton, your uterus is 3.5 to 4 inches above it. Total weight gain at this point is usually between 19 and 25 pounds.

Babies that are born prematurely can be very tiny. Even a baby that is only a few weeks early can be very small. Your baby will grow rapidly from now until week 36, and then at a slower rate thereafter. Generally, boys weigh more than girls at birth. The average baby's birth weight at full term is 7 to 7.5 pounds.

You might notice some leakage of colostrums from your breasts around this time. Colostrums is a sticky, watery substance that provides your baby's first food if you choose to breastfeed. Milk does not come in immediately after delivery and colostrums is high in calories and enough for your baby's first few days of life. Your baby is stimulating the production of colostrums. The baby's body is ensuring that there will be a readily available food supply after delivery.

Your baby will continue to open and close his eyes in the womb and may be able to see silhouettes of objects or even people in the right amount of light. Your baby should be moving many times throughout the day. Some of your baby's movements will be predictable and if you notice a decrease in fetal movements, you should lie down and do a fetal kick count. You should feel your baby move approximately ten times in an hour. If you do not notice the proper amount of movements, you should contact your healthcare provider.

Research has shown that your baby is not only able to hear, but also able to recognize your own voice. This shows that your baby can already learn, remember and recognize.

I was a little thick before at 164 lbs. I was always skinny till I had my last 2 close together. Luckily I've never seen 200 lbs. on the scale and don't want to! lol

amberc88 - 20.7 hours ago
Yea as far as weight gaine goes I'm tryin to stay within 20lbs or so. I am big belly wise but never been like a large girl. I did however gain some weight before I got pregnant and I think that's why I haven't gained as much yet. He is livin off my extra fluffiness hahaha

onbabyfour - 21.8 hours ago
my other kids did this too. I guess it just took this one a little longer. Last I went to dr I gained 11 lbs. Probably more like 15 now. I'd love to stay between 20-25 lbs hopefully. I gained 50 with my first 2 and 40 with my last! I'm happy so far I'm doing good, just hope I don't start piling it on. Some days I think I look huge and other days I feel smaller.

amberc88 - 1 days ago
Onbabyfour- that is how it's been for me with this baby too. The last month he has been sooooooo active. Like at all hours non stop lol. He is making up for the first 6 months of barely moving or not moving and freaking me out lol. My daughter moved like this from 16 weeks on. And yea I'm pretty big. I have only gained 7lbs at this point so hopefully I can continue to maintain that as well. I only gained a total of 17lbs when I was pregnant with my daughter. I look about 9 months along already tho!

onbabyfour - 1 days ago
Lol Amber my baby pokes out too. Its like shes doing gymnastics. I see my belly change shape as she moves. She has been less active than my other kids until the last month or so. Sometimes I wonder how much more baby and I can grow lol

amberc88 - 2 days ago
hey girls, im feelin alright. i think this lil guy has legit changed positions again and is pushing straight out, my belly is sooooo tight lol and his rolls/hits/kicks actually hurt sometimes. It looks like i have an alien trying to climb out lol lol. Smiles-as far as guests in the hospital, i would rather most people just wait until im home and settled. I have NOOOOO problem telling them that too, and if they are offended by that than oh well. i got next to ZERO sleep when i was there and had my daughter, i want to make sure i use that time at the hospital to get as much rest as i possibly can before im back home and back to reality of doing everything myself and chasin after my 3 year old. I had preeclampsia with my first pregnancy so during the time i was in labor they would only let 2 people in my room at a time, and even after teh baby was born they were still worried i was going to have seizures because of how high my blood pressure was so the nurse was actually pretty onry about anyone that came to visit me, even if i did want to see them.

onbabyfour - 2 days ago
I think you should tell anyone that u don't want at the hospital that you will let them know when u are home and settled so they get the hint that you want them to wait to visit. You could also not tell anyone when u go to the hospital except those u need to for a sitter or that u expect to visit. Maybe even post on FB or text the day after delivery that people can visit from this time til this time. I've seen people do that before. As for me it will only be my mom brother and sister visiting, and my kids. So im ok with all of them. Everyone else can visit once im home.

smiles884 - 2 days ago
What do you all think about visits in the hospital after baby is born? Last time I had TOO MANY visits and not enuf time to me, baby and hubby. DEF. putting a do not disturb sign on the door and will expect it to be honored! Know some people will be ticked about this, but really if i'm trying to breast feed for one of the first times, or i'm finally able to catch some sleep, I DO NOT want to be bothered, and they're just going to have to get over it lol Was thinking since this is #2, won't have as many visits, BUT since it's twins, I imagine there will be a bunch of people coming to see them and bring their well wishes..

smiles884 - 2 days ago
amber and onbabyfouryes-i am so grateful the end is in sight... I think lol : ) I think 35-36 weeks is about average... My Dr. is against letting multiples go past 38 weeks bc the still born rate increases by so much after that supposedly... BUT if everything seems fine and they're moving and grooving still, I'm gonna press to keep them as long as possible... if I make it that far. Who knows?! Wish I at least knew roughly which week to expect.. but since I don't, just gon stay ready! : ) How are you two feeling?

onbabyfour - 3 days ago
Yes it was scary, im lucky. Are you on insulin or pills? I know its not fun! Luckily you only have a few more weeks!! What is the average birth time for twins anyway? 36 week im guessing? I saw a show the other day and a woman was overdue with twins!!! I was like wow!

amberc88 - 3 days ago
smiles-guess i read your last comment wrong, i thought you DIIDNT have GD this time! thats no fun! at least your end is in sight!!!

smiles884 - 3 days ago
onbabyfour-that's scary!! I've had some close calls and am so glad to have not fallen on my stomach.. Glad baby is moving! : ) I do have GD.. it stinks-hate poking myself and I'm ALWAYS hungry cause if I eat any carbs my blood sugar spikes crazy! Not much more time now tho!!! : )

onbabyfour - 4 days ago
Thank you smiles, I was relieved I passed! Im feeling tired the last couple days. It snowed here last night and I slipped and fell carrying in groceries today. I mostly landed on my knees and elbows but my tummy muscles felt pretty sore. Im just relaxing the rest of the day. Baby is moving so I think all is well.

amberc88 - 5 days ago
smiles-thats awesome that you dont have the GD this time around. and yes its SOOOO crazy that we are just weeks away from havin our lil ones here!! you are even closer!!!! and im just as excited to hear about ur lil ones when you have them and if you post pics, being able to see them!!

smiles884 - 5 days ago
onbabyfour- I would like Bible names, though its not a must.. just like Ezekiel and Joel b/c they are different and I don't have any bad associations with either.. lol

smiles884 - 5 days ago
amber-sounds like things are going well for you-so glad! and hoping the next few weeks fly for you! : ) also hoping you get LOTS of goodies at the baby shower!

smiles884 - 5 days ago
Duffy do you have a name picked out?

smiles884 - 5 days ago
onbabyfour-congrats on passing the 2 hour!! : ) that's great news, but wise to follow what your Dr said about being careful with sugars-luckily you aren't craving them!! My nesting has slowed a little it seems, maybe b/c I have so much done now lol... can't believe..still in shock some days that I am pregnant, and now we're just WEEKS away from meeting and holding our precious little ones!! : ) so excited!

onbabyfour - 6 days ago
how is everyone feeling? I'm really starting to nest and have a mental to-do-before-baby list. I found out on fri that I passed the 2 hr glucose test so I don't have gestational diabetes this time! Unlike my other 3 pregnancies, I haven't really been craving a lot of sweets so I'm trying to make sure I don't eat a lot of sugary stuff anyway. My dr told me if I passed I should still eat a diabetic diet because failing the 1 hr means my body takes longer to process the sugar. Baby has been moving so much more in the last couple weeks! A couple people on my facebook just had babies or are pregnant. When I see those new babies I just can't wait to hold mine!

snowrider54 - 11 days ago
I don't believe I've heard of the mamaroo seat. I'll have to look it up!

purplelizard270 - 12 days ago
I wasn't going to have one if I was having another boy, but since I'm having a girl we decided to do one. I really want a mamaroo seat. Have you seem those?

snowrider54 - 12 days ago
We don't have any plans for a baby shower this time around. It's our third and we still have most of the big stuff we need for baby, especially since we're having another girl. Might be different if we were having a boy.

purplelizard270 - 15 days ago
Yeah I'm very afraid my little boy is going to be highly jealous. He loves to play with babies and give them kisses and etc, but hates it when I hold and love on them.. So I'm not sure how he's going to handle having a baby sister around all the time. Are you having a baby shower or have you had one? Mines next week and for some reason I just don't feel like many people will be there. We had 50+ at the one for my son, but I think this one will be different.

snowrider54 - 16 days ago
purple - It sure sounds like you are one busy lady! I babysat my friend's 3-month-old last Saturday from 7:30 am to 4:30 pm and it completely wiped me out! At least when my baby arrives, I won't be pregnant anymore! It was challenging to hold an infant with my big belly in the way. And every time I tried to get something to eat, the baby fussed so I was STARVING by the end of the day. My daughters were pretty good with him and my 5-year-old even said, 'I like having a baby in the house!' She may change her tune when the baby is around 24/7 though!

purplelizard270 - 16 days ago
Snowrider I'm feeling your pain! I am soooo tired all the time. I have been helping my dad take care of my step mom every day while he's at work because she had major back surgery. I let my sister and her two kids move in temporarily, so that's been crazy. And I'm trying to potty train my two year old which has been more stressful than I imagined. I'm ready for June, but then again I'm soooooo nervous to bring her into my crazy house! Haha!

snowrider54 - 16 days ago
Some days I wonder if I'm going to survive the remaining two months of this pregnancy! It's really wearing me down! I don't remember feeling this exhausted in the third trimester with my other pregnancies but maybe it has something to do with the fact that I'm not sleeping well, I'm working full-time and I've got two active kiddos at home. So, so ready for June to get here!

purplelizard270 - 19 days ago
Nope! They never did call me. They're usually so good about that type of thing, too.

snowrider54 - 19 days ago
purple - Have you heard anything about your glucose test yet?

purplelizard270 - 19 days ago
29 weeks... So hard to believe! Baby shower in two weeks!

baby-leo - 35 days ago
we are also keeping it a surprise!!

abbyh - 37 days ago
I also am having the gender be a surprise. Thought I was the only one, since the other couple times I asked, nobody spoke up. Can't wait for it to be announced when Baby is born!

onj - 42 days ago
Bkle- Right- I remember bout the shots now. You mentioned it before, I just forgot. I'm glad they're working so far!! :) My hospital is a Catholic hospital, and I was told that part of the reason they don't tell gender is so people don't find out and then decide to terminate based on that. But I've also been told it has to do with people being told the wrong gender as well. Who knows for sure? :)

SamanthaDawn - 43 days ago
I guess years ago they used to tell people at my hospital. and they were wrong about it a few times and people were PISSED! (I don't blame them!) So now they are not allowed to tell you. They are not even allowed to hint at what they think it might be. I'm glad tho. Because I'd rather not know, than to think wrong and get all the WRONG colored things! I can't believe they could be wrong about it tho... like If they can't even tell if its a boy or girl, how are they gonna be skilled enough to see if there is something pysically wrong with the baby, like a heart defect or something!

bkle - 43 days ago
onj and Samantha... that's amazing they wont tell you what your having. Here they wont say for sure anything until at least 18 weeks prego but after that they tell you.

bkle - 43 days ago
onj.. no my shots are too keep baby in there. Ive been doing them for almost 9 weeks now and seems to be working. I find out tomorrow if I have to do the 3 hour gluclose, if I fail the 3hour it means more shots for me to have to do.

onj - 43 days ago
And it IS a nice surprise at the end. The only things I find hard is packing clothes for the baby in the hospital, because as cute as the yellow and green things are, once you know the gender, you want pink or blue lol. Luckily, the hospital isn't too far from Wal-Mart or Superstore, so people arrive with all kinds of gender specific outfits that first day :)

SamanthaDawn - 44 days ago
No, my hospital Dosen't tell you. I'd have to drive a little over an hour to go to halifax and pay to have a 3D ukltrasound and find out, which is why I was also on team yellow for all 3. It's annoying at first, but now that I'm closer to the baby being born I'm glad it's a surprise. I get to find out in 9 weeks. :)

onj - 44 days ago
bkle- Shot day? Is that for GD? Samanthadawn- I think so too! Does your hospital tell you, or do you have to go to a 3D place? With our first, we didn't want to pay to go to UC Baby in Halifax, so we have been team yellow for all 3, sort of by default, but we also were happy with that decision each time, so it works for us :)

bkle - 44 days ago
Another ultrasound tomorrow :-) I get to see my baby boy again while they check my cervix and water in the sack. Today is shot day and I hesitated when stabbing myself and pulled the needle out ugh; so now I have two shot spots haha. My 11 year old is doing good squirting it in, im proud of how caring she is being about it. Im a lucky mama :-)

SamanthaDawn - 44 days ago
onj- I think we are the only ones!

onj - 44 days ago
oh 4girls, your poor little one is hard on herself!! lol

4girls want a boy - 44 days ago
Oh dear now she has managed to pinch her lip when shutting her DS..Fat lip

bkle - 45 days ago
It always seems like my kids are getting themselves hurt right before important things ie perfessional pics, dr appointments. My oldest had fell off the couch when she was 2 and bomped her head off of the coffee table and had to have stiches right before a dr appointment. I was so worried he would think my little one was being abused haha. He knew me better then that of course. Dr's know that kids, especially little ones get hurt and bruises are normal. I saw an awful bruise on my 11 year old the other day and she said she didn't even know how it happened LOL kids are too funny

onj - 45 days ago
Aww 4girls- I'm sure the doctor will understand that children get bruises. We all feel bad when they get scratched up, but it doesn't mean it is going to stop happening lol. Bkle-Sorry about your blanket!! I'd be soo frustrated!! Samanthadawn- I'm Team Yellow too! Have been for all 3 kids. I'm pretty sure it's a girl though. The 20 week ultrasound made me think there weren't any 'extra' parts lol.

4girls want a boy - 45 days ago
Oh no bkle ! I would not be a happy mama. My poor two year old has fell almost every day for the last four days and is all brused up. First ran into the corner with her face and has a bad bruse on her cheek. Then fell of her swing in the bad yard and scraped open her nose and forhead . Then fell off her little chair and chipped her two front teeth. Then fell fighting over a toy and scraped up her leg. She is my clumbsy baby girl. Now tomorrow I have to take her to the lung Dr for her asthma , and im am afraid of what the Dr 's going to think . She is all messed up :/

bkle - 45 days ago
I started knitting a blanket for my little baby james today. I spent 3 hours and got a lot done. Went down stairs to do laundry and when I returned to the living room where my knitting was, I found my 2 year old holding what was left of my blanket. Time to start over on it, not happy! and here I thought she was busy making a house out of blocks in her room ugh

bkle - 45 days ago
Samantha...Team blue here :-) I could never wait im too impatient. How exciting that you'll know the day you see him/her tho. If I waited id of guessed I was having another girl hehe. Do you have a guess of what it may be?

SamanthaDawn - 46 days ago
Just currious, who else is on team yellow? I just can't wait to find out! It's going to be so fun calling everyone to tell them what I had after the baby is born. And when my mom and sisters visit me in the hospital it's going to be so exciting to tell them. I just can't wait for that moment!! :) lol When my son was first born he was a surprise baby too. For some reason the hsopital staff wrapped him up in a pink dora blanket and when my mom and sisters walked in to see us for the first time they were like 'awwww its a girl!' I laughed and was like nope, boy! I don't know why they didn't wrap him in something more boyish. This time I will ask them to wrap baby in white, green or yellow (or maybe I'll bring my own blanket) So that the color dosent give it away before I can say anything.

SamanthaDawn - 46 days ago
I have 9 weeks, 2 days left :) ..Or sooner if I go into labor. I love being able to know the date ahead of time and count down the days.

4girls want a boy - 46 days ago
