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.

Getting sick again! My 2 1/2 yr old has a cold/virus and I'm getting it. We were up practically all night battling fever, coughing, whinning, etc. Finally got some sleep around 4am. Came into work late so I won't take a lunch break. This afternoon will be rough!

PaulaSoon2b8 - 28 days ago
went in for what was to have been my 29 week check up...fundal height was at 35 weeks, they have booked me for a scan on 2nd of August. Although I just had my last one at 25 weeks...can't see the baby haven grown that much over the past 4 weeks. All my blood came back clear no sugar I guess time will tell. I do feel awfully large right now...but it is number eight I would think its expected. the doctor did get right in there and check the head and bumb size with her hands...said she did feel a little on the plump side...but...we had already talked about inducing 2 weeks I think that's early enough, if she ends up big and we need to do a c-sec...then that's what must be. I jut want everything to be developed and her to be healthy and strong :)

Most people start biweekly visits around 30 weeks or so.

overjoyedmommy2 - 36 days ago
I went to the dr yesterday. Found out I passed my 3hr glucose😃 baby's heart rate was 134 and now I go every two weeks. I can't remember from my last pregnancy but does it seem to soon to start two week appointments?

Kekea - 36 days ago
Mzdallas06 that is so cool. I would like to document this labor and delivery as it is my last. TaraR I've always wanted a 3d ultrasound I know that you guys are excited.I hope that everyone is feeling well. Today was tough for me. When I got out of bed this morning I felt really dizzy, so dizzy that it made me drop to my knees. On top of that I was feeling nauseated. At any rate I had an appointment with the specialist today. I had an NST and an ultrasound. Everything is looking well. She is head down and right on my cervix. She is about 3lbs and 4oz now. I have to go to the specialist every week now until the remainder of my pregnancy which is going to be draining.

TaraR - 36 days ago
Good morning! I had my glucose test yesterday...haven't received results yet but hoping I passed. Mr. Oliver has dropped a little bit but my doctor could still feel his head so he's not too far down. We have our 3D ultrasound 8-10.....I'm so excited and can't wait!! I want to see that sweet face! We will also be checking his babies tend to get bigger each pregnancy so we'll see. Hope everyone is doing well!

1morefor4 - 38 days ago
My next appointment is next Wednesday at 30w2d and then I should be biweekly also. That's when it starts flying by. I was thinking about signing up to retour the hospital since it's been 2 years since I gave birth there but I'm on the fence. But right now I'm just focusing on trying to get what the baby needs and what DH, the kids, and I need for the overnight stay.

mzdallas06 - 38 days ago
I went to register at the hospital today, no matter how many times I become a mom, registering at the hospital is so exciting! I just had my son 2 years ago, but my how things have changed! Now they have a videographer filming you from the time you check in until you check out. They film all the moments: mom & dad getting settled into their room, the progression of labor, your support team (husband, wife or domestic partner) the actual birth (minus the vaginal area) the weighing, footprints etc and parents first bonding moment with baby! Then the next day your're allowed to bring other family members to the hospital (siblings, grandparents etc) to film them meeting & bonding with new baby! This is all edited into a short 5 minute video with music of your choice playing in the background. Also it comes with still shots of all pictures that are taken... They Mail you a DVD to keep as memory. All this for $100..... All I could say was WOW!! I really wish this was around for my other 3 kids.... Needless to say I've already set aside the funds for this!!! Since this is our last baby, I'm gonna go ahead & splurge :)

Kekea - 41 days ago
Paula after my next visit I will start my biweekly visits to my ob and weekly visits to the specialist because I have hypertension... it's getting so close now that I think I am starting to get nervous. My family is not only growing in size but my children are getting so big. We have been going through so mich food lately. I can only imagine how much food you guys go through...

PaulaSoon2b8 - 42 days ago
I feel you all...I have bought nothing...absolutely no time :( Still getting random vomiting episodes through the night so sleep is minimal...little ones very clingy!! I've got to do my blood sugar testing this week, and doc has started me on my bi-weeklies only technically supposed to be 27 and 3 days today....he said we will book another ultrasound in a few weeks for measurements...and keep a close eye going forward.

Kekea - 46 days ago
I'm with you mamalira exhausted... I don't think I was this fatigue in the third trimester my last few pregnancy. Then again I didn't have 4 little ones.

mamalira - 46 days ago
Hello 29 found out last week that baby girl is laying mostly head down but slightly transverse toward the right side. Midwife says that she is in a good position for turning completely head down. I am exhausted and all I want to do is sleep. I think it is from the other two children and stress because all of my blood work is good.

Kekea - 47 days ago
Week 29. Baby Girl is really active. I love the feeling of her little hiccups. I'm to physically exhausted to do any prep. I'm a last minute type of person anyway when it comes to baby prep. If she follows the pattern of her siblings I will be meeting her in about 9 weeks. I hope that you ladies are doing well...

beckym - 59 days ago
Lucky girls. I am counting the days and weeks with the unknown. 69 days left 10 weeks to go! Still deciding to wait on finding out the sex. If a girl Serenity Aurora, if a boy we have it down to two, Wesley Daniel or Johnathan Daniel Jr.

jamie86 - 59 days ago
Holz that's my due date! Dr is wanting to induce me a week early though. If my insurance will approve it Oliver will be here September 2nd I believe.

beckym - 59 days ago
That s so exciting to know the exact date holtz!

holz8519 - 61 days ago
Hi ladies I haven't posted in a while but been checking in at least once a week to keep up. My 4th c section is scheduled for 9/9/15 so 73 more days. Just talked to my doctor about my c-section and she is letting me do a gentle c-section. So excited and can't wait.I will also be donating my placenta this time around.

beckym - 65 days ago
Free, we found out during a regular check up that there was no heartbeat for my last pregnancy, that is all the doctors told me expecting me to take their word at that and go get the baby taken, i waited until i was 200 percent sure before agreed, all the while they warned me about waiting, then when i was sure, they wouldnt let me go in until a specific day unless it was an emergency, even after my water broke, it was ridiculous, that is very nice of you to add me to your prayers about the anemia. They never told us either what really went wrong in the pregnancy, I still don't understand, but I feel like God is giving us another chance at this and the experience has been a healing one. I am surprised the low iron resurfaced again, I was so frustrated they let me lose so much blood when they knew being in the 2nd trimester I was high risk for hemmoraging, and yet waited so long to do surgery even after losing the baby at my house. It is just so infuriating that their incompetence is still affecting my health now. I had suffered heart palpitations, chest pain, rapid heart beat, and dizzy spells even after the transfusion back in April 2014 because it only brought my hemoglobin level up to 9, when I was at about 14 normally. I'm sorry to hear about your losses, that must have been terrible. I'm glad we are both here going through this journey together and we are 3/4 of the way through, 75% done with our pregnancies with minimal turbulences, the anemia has a good solution, I just need to keep pushing the iron, be like Popeye and eat me spinach! There are so many more tough things that can happen with pregnancy, if this is my only obstacles I will have to take that with optimism, those dizzy spells are unnerving though, and sometimes mild nausea that might be stemmed from vertigo from how dizzy I get. But thankfully, I can report that there have been less dizzy spells, still happening but less frequently. 75 days left and counting!

Free2Bmom - 65 days ago
Becky, I'm sorry for your loss. At least it's known what happened. I lost five before my son and five after before this pregnancy and there is still no known reason. We have had our genetics tested, sperm and egg analysis, tests out the ying yang and we are in perfect health. They have never had anything more than random hunches. I hope things keep going ok for you. I see a natural path doctor from time to time and I have been anemic and she had told me to snack on broccoli along with my iron supplements because your body will absorb iron more naturally from foods than supplements and it will help aid the supplements to absorb. My cousin lost his full term baby due to doctor incompetence just three months ago and it has been an infuriating nightmare for my family. Such an unnecessary loss is so heartbreaking. I hope you don't mind but I'll add you to our prayers that your iron levels get better!

beckym - 66 days ago
Free, I love the movements of my little one as well, reassuring, and loving! I had my doctors appt today, from now until 36 weeks, I will see the doctor every 2 weeks. I was very impressed by the nurse practioner, she told me the baby is head down and was able to hold the baby still to use my fetoscope to get the babies heartbeat. I have to work on my iron which is irritating. Every other pregnancy I never had issues with my iron level. Last year when I lost my 4th child, they knew I was at risk for hemorraging and made me wait until emergency status saying they couldn't get me in for 2 days. When I lost the baby, they made me wait 4 hours while in the hospital before doing the surgery, I went from 14 hemoglobin to 7, and couldn't feel my arms and legs I lost so much blood, they had to do a blood transfusion which never should have been needed. It took a while to get my blood back to normal after that. My first pregnancy blood work for this one was 13 point something. The next blood work showed 11. Now with this new blood work I did it is at 10. They are now saying I have anemia, I thought I was recovering well but it seems this will be a longer journey than I first thought, it makes me yet again infuriated at the incompetence of that hospital, and glad that I switched hospitals and doctors to a more high tech hospital that is more well equipped for when things go wrong. I have been for the past week or 2 feeling dizzy and having off and in pulsing vision that pulses with my heartbeat, they say this is due to the low iron. I had thought that might be why so I increased my iron 2 days ago just in case. I haven't felt nearly as dizzy today, improvement is welcome!

Free2Bmom - 67 days ago
Congrats Kirty! I hope you're getting better! Glad to hear your baby is doing well :) I'm so thankful to be at 29 weeks! The only real downside is I am having a bad time trying to sleep. Very uncomfortable at night. Made my husband buy me a king size bed, which helped cause it's easier to roll over in, but the darned thing is hard as a rock! I added a memory foam pad but it's still hard. It will be nice when I'm not pregnant though. It's also getting pretty hot where I live, but it's bearable still. I love feeling my little girl worming around in my belly. She's getting stronger by the day and loves hearing my son talk to her already lol. Hope everyone is feeling good! Off tomorrow to see my doctor and see how my glucose test results are. I've been a sugar eater this pregnancy so I'm kinda worried I'll have to do the two hour one next.... Yuk.

beckym - 67 days ago
29 weeks today!

beckym - 68 days ago
Congratulations kirty!

kirty - 70 days ago
Hi ladies just letting you know my lil girl was delivered via emergancy csection at 29weeks 4days on Wednesday she is doing well and is currently on a cpap and shes a lil trooper. Missing her as im not allowed in to see her yet as im sick. But fingers crossed i get better quickly.

mrscephas - 75 days ago
Awww, the calculator just said I've 74 days to go! What?!!!! This is closer than I think and I'm hoping to work for another 6-7 weeks... I better get some shopping and packing done (I've got a newborn starter pack with vests, sleep suits, booties, mittens and bibs, size 1 nappies, sensitive wipes, and some maternity pads, knickers, and breast pads left over from my nursing days 2 years ago, that's about it). I think I'll make a list (or dig an old one out) and see what's needed. I'm not buying many clothes for starters but I'll be getting some 0-12 months stuff since we gave it all away from DS. After that, he can wear his brother's hand-me-downs.

mrscephas - 75 days ago
That's great news Claraxx! I've got growth scans at 32 & 36 weeks. Looking forward to seeing little bean again. Trying to stay on top of my GDM but it's not easy. I think about food often, and then I have to watch everything I eat to avoid going beyond my upper limit. On Friday night I went out with friends from work and had a passion fruit juice and a pint of lemonade and I worried it'd mess my sugar control all the way home. Luckily, my reading was within range. Here's to the next 10 weeks or so...

claraxx - 78 days ago
Thanks mrscephas I'm sure midwifes each measure differently which wouldn't bother me but the measurements were from a 28week growth scan tho. But I'm happy to say that in just 2 weeks she has grown from under the line for my gestation to now over the line and is around 3lbs already so I'm thrilled 😊 I have another scan for 4 weeks time just to check on the progress.

mrscephas - 79 days ago
Claraxx, the fundal height measurements are subjective and vary from midwife to midwife. I got a 28cm on Friday, only to get a 27cm on Monday (a week behind) but as long as everything is on track, I wouldn't worry.

claraxx - 84 days ago
29 weeks today! I have another growth scan this week as baby is measuring small so I'm hoping she is getting bigger and fatter in there...well I know I am anyways lol! Hope everyone else is ok!?

xEricaLynn - 89 days ago
29 weeks today. Yep.

liltyke7 - 115 days ago
Congrats all...10 weeks left! I just had u/s yesterday and my baby is coming in at 4lbs! Back to doc this Monday and we will see what he says. I am sure more u/s's are in my future. - 115 days ago
Hope everyone is doing well. We're about to enter the home stretch! I agree that time is flying on by..I'm getting more and more anxious to have my son in my arms though. 7 more weeks until my c section...I guess it's time to start buying baby items =)

jesswithtwins - 118 days ago
So I know I keep repeating myself but these weeks are going by so fast it's like they're running into each other and it's kinda scary I remember with my singleton pregnancy the weeks couldn't go fast enough but with this twin pregnancy all I want is more time ;-) it's become so real but so unrealistic at the same time ;-) I just pray for strength through my Lord and I know he'll help me through it all I'll definitely need it ;-)

jesswithtwins - 118 days ago
Congratulations to all the mommas it won't be long before we hold our beautiful blessings

wooohooo 29weeks!! - 121 days ago
29 weeks today =)

KristiW - 189 days ago
KristinaA-Yes it was the fundal height measurement that put me ahead! I did have this with my last pregnancy but not until I was further along. I am not to worried, I am excited to have another ultrasound:)

KristinaA - 190 days ago
Kristi -- was that the fundal height measurement that put you ahead? In my last pregnancy, I had one that put me 4 weeks behind and I needed u/s to reconfirm everything was fine. I think there's a lot of subjectivity on fundal height and it depends on who's measuring.

KristiW - 191 days ago
I am measuring 4 weeks further along then I am! So my doctor wants me to get an ultrasound to measure baby! 30 weeks is the next milestone I am looking forward to too:) Hope all is well!!

mamaford77 - 196 days ago
Getting closer. I think I'm just holding my breath until 30 weeks and then we'll be in the final stretch.

mandykat760 - 212 days ago
The results came back and I'm boarder line. I failed 1 of the three test. You must fail two to be diagnoused. I need to watch my sugar intake and up my protien :/ I have an appoinment with the doctor Tuesday to ask more questions. The nurse was no help

babylove5 - 213 days ago

babylove5 - 217 days ago
Floy I haven't taken anything but fat free milk. It works ok if I don't eat spicy. I always have some weird side effect when I take pills. After the birth Im so tired I cant do anything because of the pain pills. Im on cloud nine. They have some good deals on graco travel systems in a pretty blue at 175.00 for the whole thing.
