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.

deebo// That's awesome news!!! Mine moved up a lot too!! I'm happy that bedrest allowed you to heal! good job momma! I know what you mean about getting winded after all the bleeding and bedrest! I would literally walk across the room and be winded!! And I run when I'm healthy too. Anyway, glad to hear the good news. Sorry about your foot though :(

Juliemom24 - 10 days ago
You've had quite the pregnancy deebo! I'm so glad that you were given good news! Here's to 10 good weeks before the baby comes!

deebo - 10 days ago
Got my results from my latest US, sch is healed, and my placenta has moved up 6cm!! I'm officially back on active duty. Except I may have broken bones in my foot.. LOL! Gotta get some xrays. I want to work out. Ride my recumbent bike and try to get some stamina back. Going up the stairs winds me.. Last summer I was running 5km every night, and didn't feel as tired. I cough and pee myself frequently! How ridiculous is it? Haha :)

Juliemom24 - 15 days ago
Same here about the half the time.

lissie**** - 16 days ago
lol that has happened to me too

kathy=^.^= - 17 days ago
Hellllloooo hope everyone is doing good :) today when I sneezed I peed myself lol I couldn't help but to laugh.

Juliemom24 - 25 days ago
How is everyone doing?

Juliemom24 - 28 days ago
I know, me too (except I'm a week behind you)! 30 weeks just sounds so much further along than 29 weeks. I can't believe that we are already to this point. Wasn't it last month I was just finding out I was pregnant?!

lissie**** - 31 days ago
I'm kind of excited that finally I'll be 30 weeks on Saturday. Though it feels like I should be 35 weeks and I apparently look 40 weeks.

lissie**** - 35 days ago
Mine went numb in two previous pregnancies when I slept. But not when I was awake.

JezzicaRabbit1 - 41 days ago
My hands have been going numb lately which is super weird and I have had a little swelling in my hands as well. I plan to ask my dr about it at my next appt.

lissie**** - 43 days ago
Um, YES! I have noticed my fingers are swollen when I wake up but it gets better as the day goes on.

Kayte-Berk - 46 days ago
Anyone else experiencing hand swelling and finger joint pain that comes on in the middle of the night, and goes away a couple hours after waking up in the morning? Its been happening for almost two weeks now, today the swelling went down, but the pain in my fingers is sticking around.

aksnods - 57 days ago

aksnods - 60 days ago

matoks - 61 days ago
Thanks ladies,u know being an unexperienced mother u tend 2open ear 2what dey say....sorry jojo for the bleeding would advice if u can get checked up before wednesday 2know what's wrong,twinny just try and take it cool and nt exhaust yourself to enjoy the rest of the pregnancy,I'm kindda enjoying this last trimester only for little pain down my abdomen once in a while.

jojo09 1 pink 1 blue - 61 days ago
Arh hun disappointing to hear ur bleeding again :o( U r doing the right thing going to get checked out - can they not fit u in before Wednesday? As for my post before ur right chick, hormones, tiredness, kids, work...running a house, my upcoming scan.....we aint superwoman but we r darn well pretty feckin close haha Keep smiling hun xx

jojo - 61 days ago
Lol I actually haven't had much trouble sleeping up until now so think I've been very lucky. Twinny I think the way your feeling is prob just hormones and the worry of your upcoming scan on Thurs.. we try not to dwell on things but it's always there in the back of our minds. I'm sure you'll have good news hun.. I think the tiredness is normal I could so finish work.. don't forget it's not just coping with the pregnancy it's also looking after our other children and the house as well as working. It's no wonder we're so tired lol I've had some more bleeding :( yesterday and today. . Have made an appointment with the midwife for Wed. . Fed up of worrying now.. I can't do this again.. I'm gonna be grey by the time she's here :( xx

jojo09 1 pink 1 blue - 61 days ago
Hi girls. Comfortable sleep? ......sleep? Whats that????? Haha I lie on either side, whichever is comfy but yes I agree Jojo no tummy sleep. I have been mega stressing out lately for no reason at all...well, mainly my kids but they're good kids and i'm getting pissed off at the slightest kiddy thing they do...what is wrong with me!!!!! Argh!! I think my munchkin has took a head dive, she was across my tummy but its kinda gone soft on top and i'm feeling alot of swishy movements underneath and I am up to loo like every 15 minutes! I guess i'll find out on Thursday at my next scan - i'm looking forward to seeing if shes padding out, after all I have defo got bigger these past 2wks coz my clothes r becoming more uncomfy. I seriously could walk away from work now and lay on my arse for the next 10wks - I didnt feel this exhausted with either of my other 2 pregnancys and one of them was 2 babies...is anyone else feeling exhausted all the time? Good job ave got another day off tomorrow! :o) .....Bonita girl where u got too? Xx

jojo - 61 days ago
Baby's doing good I think thanks matoks.. I think she's moved position. Think she's still sideways but facing my spine which may be why I'm not feeling her so much as she's normally all limbs lol sleep however you feel comfortable.. maybe you shouldn't pay so much attention to what you hear as it'll make you worry. Obviously I wouldn't advise you sleep on your tummy but apart from that I just go to bed and however I feel comfortable that's how I sleep.

matoks - 62 days ago
Hello mammas,how's your weekend going?hope its splendid?jojo hope your little girl is ok now?......guess bonita is busy with the family as she always have family around ahahahah.now I do feel back ache like I'm having menstrual pain,dnt know what could cause it,and I also heard its not good to lay with right side nor lay with back,but I find it more comfy to sleep with my right than left,also heard that pregnant women do have itchy tommy I'm not experiencing this,is it a must?......... tommy is so small and am 31weeks today ,my body is not changing only for my tommy dat shuts out nd big boobs,unlike some pregnant women I'm seeing getting fatter with swollen face,I just hope baby is normal*worried*ok .ladies have a wonderful weekend with your family.cheers!

jojo - 63 days ago
Twinny I'm on my fourth and I'm still learning lol how's your kiddies feeling now? Am so glad it's Friday.. not back in work now til 2nd Sept woo hoo :) hope your sciatica does get too bad for you. Spoke to the doc and she's given me more treatment so fingers crossed. Been a bit worried about my lil girl today. . She's such a wriggler that it's so noticeable when she goes quiet and she's been unusually quiet today altho I have still felt her. She has thankfully woken up abit this evening I feel alot better for that :) matoks apology accepted, glad all ok. Bonita where are you hun?? Hope your ok and that your results were clear xx

jojo09 1 pink 1 blue - 63 days ago
Glad alls going well for u Matoks. Jojo yes i've had tightenings...dozy cow me didnt know they where bh just thought baba was getting into some tight spots hahaha...see, third pregnancy and still learning. I have got sciatica anyway thru a back injury when I was 18, its quite mild usually but I am really starting to notice it more the further into the pregnancy we go. As for thrush i've had it once this time round but thankfully no bleeding. Hope u get urs sorted soon chick it can be quite irritating. Wonder whats happened to Bonita and her results, u think her neice has knackered her out! Haha xx

matoks - 63 days ago
Woop,didn't know u ladies asked of me,was just surprise when bonita asked of me and none of u responded didn't read d previous messages,sorry about that,I'm doing very fine really enjoying being pregnant at this stage unlike 1st nd 2nd trimester,feeling great movement,less appetite to eat,cnt sleep at night sometimes I enjoy my sleep during d day,no swelling of leg,no changes just d big tommy ahahaha,really love my body....not having BH again,really waiting to c baba.ahahahahah

ASergeantsWife - 64 days ago
A;most 29 weeks in and have been put on restriction :(. No lifting over 20 pounds, no stairs and as little walking as possible. BLAH!!!! Maleiya is doing well just trying to make her appearance to early. Anyway restriction had seemed to help and the contractions quite a bit less frequent though the pressure is still great.So I have used my time to make her some things, a light pink sweater, bonnet and bootie set, and alternating between a chevron afghan and a Monogrammed Blanket for her crib. Thankfully the other three babies, Si, Jax and Ava (3,2 and 1) are content to be in the same room with me and play.:) Other than that things are going well, blood pressure is good measurements are good and I have gained 8 pounds and lost 12!Heartburn and Insomnia are bad but controlled so no real complaints.

jojo - 64 days ago
Aww twinny those pains sound like sciatica :( :( hope that stays mild for you. . When you have a BH your belly goes tight like when you experience contractions but there's no pain.. it's thrush hun I've been treated for it 4 times already during my pregnancy. . I'll ring docs in the morning cos I don't want anymore bleeding x

jojo09 1 pink 1 blue - 64 days ago
Am in my 3rd pregnancy and coyldnt honestly tell u that I know what a braxton hicks feels like! Haha I have been experiencing pains for the last couple of days, mainly at the top of my backside of all places! Haha...and I definately agree about the pressure underneath! I'm starting to get that pregnancy waddle as my joints r aching round my pelvis area. How would u know whether u have an infection? What type of infection cud it be and fingers crossed u havent got one chick!! Xx

jojo - 64 days ago
Way to go twinny :) :) excellent news about the weight gain.. I bet you'll hear a bit of good news when you go for your scan next week.. its my last day tomorrow and then I'm off until 2nd Sept woo hoo sorry to hear the rest of your family have been under the weather too fingers crossed they're all feeling better soon.. bonita waiting to hear on your results hun fingers crossed you passed and can relax. Anyone experiencing a lot of tight braxton hicks? ? I feel so much pressure below like she could just fall out lol and I've had very tight BH all day.. I have an awful feeling there's another infection brewing :(

jojo09 1 pink 1 blue - 64 days ago
Hi girls. Jojo u have already written what I was going to say to Matoks so I will refrain from any further comment as I completely agree with what u have written but u have said it in a much nicer way than me!! Bonita how did the glucose test results go? Did u pass?....oooh hope so chick. Thanks to u both for ur thoughts for my little Maya, she is on the up but typical of siblings my other 2 have been out of sorts aswell so am keeping them all dosed up on medicine hoping to ride it out - 3 day weekend this week with it being bank holiday so some much needed rest coming my way! :o) Jojo yes my next scan is next Thursday, I weighed myself this morning and for the first time in this whole pregnancy I have put weight on since last week...4lb.....wooohooo!!! Haha...never thought i'd b happy to be putting weight ON but its all good if it means baba is padding out and shows some weight gain on the next scan, I will feel so reassured! :o) Cant believe I finish work 8wks tomorrow I can not wait!! Bonita u being a full time mum u must b as shattered as we r going to work, being home full time with the kids is exhausting! Haha xx

jojo - 64 days ago
Hi Matoks glad to see your back and ok. I am however very sad and hurt over what you have written. Both Twinny and I have asked about you if you look through our older posts. I feel you expect a lot from us. This site is all about supporting each other which I feel we all do but this isn't the first time you have had a go over something we have or haven't done or written. I feel really sad to think you feel we don't care enough when we're all doing our best x

matoks - 65 days ago
awwww av really missed everybody but its so sad dat is only bonita dat has me in mind,so so so sad,,bonita thanks i feel being loved am fine dear we just subscribe on our internet not quite long......

jojo - 65 days ago
Aww bless hope little Maya feels better soon.. such a shame you had to go back to work this week hun.. sounds like you could have done with cwtching up in bed with her.. is it next Thurs your scan is? I'm betting she's grown.. the more your now able to eat the more I think she'll catch up as the weeks go on. Fingers and toes crossed for you twinny.. I'm ok can't believe it's only Tues and I am exhausted being back at work. . So don't want to be there this week I just keep thinking get this week out of the way and I'm off again nxt wk :) hope your ok bonita xx

bonitadiane - 66 days ago
Hello ladies... sorry been busy trying to keep my niece who came to stay with us for a week busy. Talk about exhausting always being on the go. Lol she went back home yesterday. I had my 3 hour glucose test yesterday. Pureeee torture. I'm not even sure that stuff is healthy. I felt sooo sick first hour and forced keeping myself from puking. Talk about worst feeling ever. I'm so glad it's over. Not sure when I'll get results. Think I'll call office tomorrow to see if they have them in. Twinny I'm so sorry to hear about your daughter being sick. Praying she feels better real soon. I can't imagine how tough it is on you. It's so tough being a mommy. A Job that never ever stops. Ever. Hoping you get back some energy too. Although I'll say I've been exhausted too. Worst part is I can't nap during the day as my body won't. And insomnia is my best friend. :( I can't believe today I'm 30 weeks. Oh my, 10 more weeks. Feels totally surreal. Does anyone know what's up with matoks? Hope all is well with her.

jojo09 1 pink 1 blue - 66 days ago
Sorry sorry, am here! :o) I have been absolutely shattered - my little girl Maya hasnt been too well since Saturday and I have been having sleepless nights with her and I went back to work yesterday after 2wks off so I am beyond tired, my eyes r stinging! How r u doing lovely? I'm ok besides being tired, i'm enjoying the movements- I think she has changed positions so i'm getting less big kicks and more water sensations...sounds odd that but hard to describe what i'm feeling haha I cant stop thinking about my next scan, hoping i'm given some good news that she is putting some weight on and moving up the growth chart fingers crossed!! Anyhoos, I hope ur ok after ur return to work, suprising how tired we r getting now hey haha Hope Bonitas alrite too.... Xx

jojo - 66 days ago
Where's everyone gone.. hope your both ok getting a bit worried xxx

jojo - 67 days ago

bonitadiane - 72 days ago
Hello 29 weeks!!!!

lissie**** - 73 days ago
glowingwith2// I also am getting lots of BH and belly can also feel heavy. Sorry you hurt your ankle :(

glowingwith2 - 77 days ago
I'm starting to get really strong Braxton hicks occasionally. My whole tummy gets really tight! It only does it once in awhile though. There are also sometimes my tummy feels extremely heavy, but most of the time I still feel pretty good. Some of the ladies in the FB group are having trouble sleeping now, I'm no because I'm so exhausted from working that I can't wait to get home and sleep. TGIF!! This expecting mom needs some rest!

glowingwith2 - 77 days ago
Thank you ladies. It's in pretty bad shape. I'm wearing a brace to support my ankle, but it's so weak that I nearly re-sprained it on Monday dropping my daughter off at school. :( So hard getting around nearly 8 months pregnant with a sprained ankle. Plus working all day... I'm ready for maternity leave, but I'm saving it all for when the baby actually arrives.

afshanm07 - 79 days ago
Week 29 and get well soon glowingwith2

Blondeabby - 80 days ago
Glowing -hope your ankle is on the mend:)

glowingwith2 - 86 days ago
29 weeks! I will be so happy after 30. My first was born at 36 weeks... hard to believe we are so close to the end. I went for a run on Saturday and sprained my ankle. I fell on my knee and landed on my belly. NST came back showing everything was fine with the baby. Just trying to heal my ankle now. I'm going to stick to swimming going forward. I've gained 26 pounds now. Not bad considering all I have left is 11 weeks (give or take). Ready to meet my little man! <3

monica28 - 88 days ago
