Born & Birth stories

Your baby weighs about 4.4 pounds at this point. The crown-to-rump length of your baby is approximately 12 inches and the total length is around 19.4 inches. Measuring from the top of your uterus to your bellybutton is 5.2 inches. Total weight gain at this point of pregnancy is usually 22 to 28 pounds.

With the exception of crying, your baby is capable of doing everything that a newborn baby will do. Your baby is restricted now inside of the uterus, but still can kick and move. Your baby sleeps a lot of the time, just as newborn babies do. Your baby's eyes move in the manner of REM sleep and researchers believe that babies can dream vividly in uterus. When your baby is awake, she is listening, feeling and learning. There are billions of neurons in the brain that make trillions of connections. Your baby will probably have settled into the birth position by now and your caregiver can most likely tell which way your baby is presenting. If your baby were to be born now, the lungs would probably be strong enough to function properly, but your baby may still need extra care from specially trained doctors and nurses.

During these last few weeks of pregnancy, most women experience an increased urge to urinate. The uterus puts a lot of pressure on the bladder and can send you to the restroom frequently. Your uterus has actually grown 500 times throughout your pregnancy! Red blood cell production catches up with the production of plasma and physiological anemia may begin to fade at this time.

Your baby's eyes open during alert times and close during sleep. The eye color is usually blue, regardless of the permanent color as pigmentation is not fully developed. The final formation of eye pigmentation requires exposure to light and usually happens a few weeks after birth.

I have gained 41 pds already!! I weigh as much as I did when I had both of my boys... Weirdly enough, I have gained almost all of it in my legs and booty! I too want to eat, and not the healthiest! I ate super clean before pregnancy so the change of eating habits are almost black and white! Cheesecake, carbs carbs carbs...otherwise I'm hungry 30 mins after a salad. :/ Ah well, I figure, this is our last biological baby, so hell, I'll have a nice before pic and I'll feel I got to splurge enough for a good while!

4girls want a boy - 9 days ago
momofour we just did the same thing for our 2 1/2 and 4 year old. We bought them bunk beds and re did there room in hope that they would sleep in there own room and not in ours . Ha my 2 year old will sleep in her bed , but mt four year old will only sleep in her bed till about 4 am then in mmy bed she go's. I keep telling her baby is coming and she can't be in my bed with the baby... As far as nesting I was untill my moms dog came here for two weeks wile they were on vacation. Her dog smelt so bad to me that I was waiting for it to leave before I do anything elts. Well if left last night so i need to get stuff done. Waiting on that nesting type energy to come back.

bkle- Fingers crossed for you too!! You just keep those feet up and relax!! Keep baby cookin!! :) Smiles- you sound more organized than me! I have so much organizing to do, but I just keep putting it off! lol. Eventually, I am going to have to accept that this baby is on it's way and I should get ready!! lol

smiles884 - 10 days ago
bkle-NO! not ready for two at once, but SUPER excited about it..know I have a long road ahead, but will be very much worth it in the end! : ) I too have been nesting like crazy.. was so tempted to call in to work sick so I could stay home and keep cleaning and organizing... that's all I want to do. Have a lot of things ready now though-laundry washed, folded and put away, car seats out and ready to be put in the car, diaper bag packed, son's room rearranged and our room prepped for the bassinets to be brought in when needed... going to start making some freezer meals in the next few weeks and things like that... SamanthaDawn-they are always at my belly button too, and it feels like it can NOT stretch any more w/o ripping : / They say that the babies can detect light from inside, and I wonder if our belly button area is thin enough so they can see the light even more...don't know, but it's fun to watch, despite how uncomfortable it is becoming!

bkle - 10 days ago
Getting a bit nervous as at the 34 week mark is when I had my last baby. Crossing fingers

momofour - 12 days ago
Jaybird.. Its because of my age.. Im 40.. And i guess once youre 40 they really keep an eye on you.. Ohmygosh... Ive gaind 40 -45 lbs already.. But i usually gain arounf 50 so not too crazy for me... I hope i keep up my nesting till after the 3 & 4 year olds room is clean & their bunk beds are built! They sleep in my bed.. Ha so i need to kick them out... (They have their own beds know how that goes)

bkle - 12 days ago
my little guy has been kicking me in the ribs and they feel bruised inside LOL

SamanthaDawn - 12 days ago
With my first my babie's kicks/movements really hurt near the end of my pregnancy (she was a 10lb baby) Then with my second, I hardley felt movement at all and it never hurt.(he was 7lbs 4 oz) This baby only hurts me when it's pressing on my belly button. (used to be an innie, now is an outie) that NEVER happend in my previous pregnancies! not even with my 10 pounder I still had an innie. So either this is my biggest baby of all, or it just likes pressing on my bellybutton. I can't wait to find out how much this one weighs!

baby-leo - 12 days ago
does anyone else find that baby's kicks really hurt? with my daughter, i dont remember ever being in pain from her movements, but this time around it really hurts!

baby-leo - 12 days ago
bkle - glad that your baby is hanging in there!!! jaybird - a non stress test is when they think there may be a concern, the hospital or doctor straps two belts around you. one measures the baby's heartbeat and the other measures for contractions. they also give u buzzer to hit everytime the baby moves.

SamanthaDawn - 12 days ago
I gained 39-40ish lbs. I can't help it I just get so hungry at night! And I crave ice cream a lot. I go into the tub and 'just have a spoonful' several times a day, next thing you know I ate the whole tub to myself and need to buy another. I also discoverd that a scoop of ice cream on top of coffee is so good! (I used to HATE coffee, because I dont like drinking hot things and found it bitter) But the ice cream cools it right down and makes it so sweet when it melts in!

bkle - 12 days ago
How in the world did I just eat 600 calories in fugical bars hahaha. I want more, no wonder ive gained 31 pounds ;-) They say you are what you eat well this baby is coming out as anything chocolate!

bkle - 13 days ago
momofour-- ive been nesting since around week 25. I cleaned organized and bought tons of baby stuff. Now all I want to do is sleep hehe. Im so tired for no reason all the time these past few weeks.

bkle - 13 days ago
Samantha- My husband gets back next weekend yay! I think the baby will stay in there until then :-)

SamanthaDawn - 13 days ago
momoffour- I felt the nesting urge around 27-31 weeks. I cleaned out half my bedroom, put all the baby stuff on the baby's side of the room, Re-arranged my 3 year old sons room even cleaned out the linen closet AND coat closet!! I felt like I loved cleaning! Now the tiredness has set in again. I am going to make the baby a quilt but I don't feel like moving things, arranging or cleaning anymore (besides the usual cleaning I HAVE to do)

SamanthaDawn - 13 days ago
bkle, When does your husband get back, again? Must be soon now! I'm thinking you are going to make it! :) Glad to hear you are doing better than your previous pregnancies.

jaybird81 - 13 days ago
momofour- What's a non stress test?

momofour - 13 days ago
Hey ladies! I've started going in twice a week for non stress tests.. NST's. And every 2 weeks for prenatals... I have a 36 week ultrasound coming up.. I guess there's a few perks to being older & pregnant.. Haha. Bkle... Hang in there... Anyone else nesting like crazy?! :)

4girls want a boy - 13 days ago
Bkle I wish they did foot prints here . They stopped doing it at all hospitals here i don't know why. I will still do them my self , will just bring the book and ink ... So once a week should help the next weeks to fly by for you. I think I see the Dr on the 10th I will be 35 weeks , then ether two more weeks after or once a week from there . I hope it's two more weeks being that its a far drive and im still working . It's all just too much for me to do.

bkle - 13 days ago
Dialation is at a 1 and effacement so ill be seeing the dr at least once a week now. Still not to bad considering im usually at least a 2 by now, so im still hopefull he will stay until at least 35 weeks

SamanthaDawn - 14 days ago
Thanks, Yellow and green were pretty much my only choice since I don't know if it's a boy or girl. But now I fell in love with those colors! :)

bkle - 14 days ago
Just thought of something not to forget to pack.... My babies baby book for his foot prints to be done :-)

bkle - 14 days ago
I toured the hospital and registered today. Everything went really well. Because of my past history they even gave a tour of their NICU. Really nice place. One of the babies there the lady said was born a few days ago at 33 weeks, and he was so small. It made me hope even more that my baby will stay in my belly to grow. The rooms are supper nice. I guess the room I deliver in will be where ill stay the hole time to of which is great. If my baby is ok and born after 36 weeks he will stay in my room with me :-) They automatically take the baby if he is born before 36 to the NICU. Excited to have this baby in a new hospital with advanced technology. This is the hospital they were going to fly my last one too if she started going down hill, so already being at the best is great!

bkle - 14 days ago
Samantha--- so colorful,Love the colors and theme; its looking so cute :-)

SamanthaDawn - 14 days ago
I was not able to add the pictures to the nursery section but I did add them to my profile. They look stretched and definatly don't look as good as they did when I added them to facebook, but oh well at least you can see it. :)

bkle - 14 days ago
Samantha-- I would love to see it :-) Im not sure the nursery site works on here anymore. Maybe we should open a facebook page haha

SamanthaDawn - 15 days ago
You are so right bkle-- It does make it feel so much more special! :) Hubby painted the baby's dresser and rocking chair yellow and lime green himself, and I bought 3 wall canvases and painted them lime green with a yellow boarder and painted safari animals on them. It all matched so nicely I couldn't find any crib bedding sets that felt right, none of them matched or was as good as the stuff we did ourselves, so I got the PERFECT yellow and green fabric to match, and zebra and giraffe print to match the safari animals I pained :) It's going to look so good, I'm going to try to post pictures to the nursery section on here. Or my page if that dosen't work.

bkle - 15 days ago
Samantha-- glad to hear everything went well. My baby seems like he is also on his side, my belly looks weird haha. Good luck on the quilt :-) I love making things, it makes it so much more special. My knitting isn't even half way done yet due to they don't have the right blue yarn in the store yet, only white. Hope it comes in sooner rather then later other wise he is going to have a white blanket ;-)

SamanthaDawn - 15 days ago
OBS appointment went good. Baby isn't head down, or even breech my baby's laying sideways! lol That would explain the lump that sticks out the side most of the time, it's baby's head! The day for my scheduled C-section changed from May 8th to May 12th. Sucks that I have to wait an extra 4 days but I'd rather wait and have the surgeon that did my two previous sections, than have a doctor that I've never met before do it. (unless I go into labor early I'll have no choice) Getting closer and getting so excited, I bought some fabrics to start making the baby's quilt today!

baby-leo - 15 days ago
mommytoharrison - i had the same scare with my daughter. i was contracting at 32 weeks and was hospitalized for a few days. i had that steroid shot (x2) as well and the test came back negative that i would not go into labor in the next 2 weeks. just to give u peace of mind - i ended up going a few days past my due date.

bkle - 15 days ago
After a few hours of talking with my husbands commander and Tricare, Its finally fixed and my insurance is back. Why did it have to be so frustrating and yet a simple fix? Just found out that I shouldn't of had to go to base to do my gluclose to of which could of saved me a headache. Oh well, hopefully this wont happen again but I suspect it will.

mummytoharrison - 15 days ago
I always had a nightmare with Tricare when my ex husband was stationed in the US. Good luck.

4girls want a boy - 16 days ago
Sorry Bkle insurance is so crazy always putting me through heck too . I hope it gets fixed for you.

4girls want a boy - 16 days ago
Going to turn in my paper work for my FMLA ! 3 more weeks

bkle - 16 days ago
Registration appointment at the hospital tomorrow. Trying to get into a different frame of mind and trying to forget that the lady was a jerk! Not to mention that for some reason Tricare sent us a letter saying my husband didn't fill out the paper work right and at this moment I might not have coverage. UGH There is no way to contact him and Tricare said he is the only one to fix this issue. I might be cancelling my dr app I have for Thursday now.

bkle - 16 days ago
mummytoharrison-- glad you and baby are holding on.

onj - 16 days ago
Glad you get some more time for baby to grow, mummytoharrison. Not much longer until those practice contractions become real!

mummytoharrison - 16 days ago
Ended up in L&D today as I had contractions for over 2 hours. She is fine though and was just practicing apparently. Had a steroid jab and have another scheduled for tomorrow. Even the midwives thought I was going early till they ran a test showing now labour hormones.

onj - 17 days ago
Samantha, Mine is May 3rd and it's not usually tanning weather, but it's almost always at least 15 degrees, so I think we should be good to plan on decent weather!! Oh man, I am starting to get anxious/excited. My husband is too. He loves the newborn stage and he just keeps saying he can't believe we get to have a newborn soon :) Also...I always complain about my midwife/OB appointments because they are usually fast (weight, pee, measure belly, questions?, bye) and kinda pointless. But since I missed my appointment last week and couldn't get another until Friday, it feels like it's been forever- and I can't wait to go!! Lol. I think it's just getting to that point in the pregnancy where I just want to know as much as I can possibly know about how I am measuring, how low baby is, etc. It feels so close but so far away, all at the same time :)

elisiaxx - 17 days ago
So im heading over to week 34 tomorrow :) only 6 more weeks until he arrives and I leave work on friday for 2 weeks holiday then my mat leave will start straight after that! How exciting the finishing line is in sight! I had my tummy measured again yesterday and I am only measuring 29 weeks, I have midwife on Thursday so I will see what she says about my growth! I feel like I am growing by the day and he feels big enough to me let's hope he is growing ok! At the start of my pregnancy I got told I had a subchorinic bleed which is to do with my placenta, well I bled on and off for the first 16 weeks I just want to know who has had this (previous pregnancy) and gone on to having a normal delivery/good size baby :)

SamanthaDawn - 17 days ago
I was looking at crib bedding sets online lastnight (A LOT!) and didn't find any I liked enough to spend THAT much money on. So I decided my baby dosen't need a crib bedding set!.... I want to make a little baby quilt!! (with my moms help, hopefully) That way, it will be the exact colors I want, and it will be all that much more special. I know I can do it, I almost made a large quilt top (hand cut, and sewn) when I was in grade 9. But I lost the rest of the pieces somehow when I was about 3/4 done. A baby quilt will be so much smaller and easier! I can't wait to go pick out fabric, I have this image in my head of what i want it to look like.

4girls want a boy - 17 days ago
Bad heart burn , knee's hurt , over tierd . I feel like I am done with being pregnant. Maybe this is from working so many hours at work idk. I just want the next 6 weeks to hurry :(

mummytoharrison - 17 days ago
Sorry, May 11th in Oz too. Brain not working today.

SamanthaDawn - 17 days ago
You mean may 11th? (the second sunday in msy) or is it really on may 2nd there?

mummytoharrison - 17 days ago
It's not Mother's Day on Australia till May 2nd but our UK mummies celebrate it on March 30th :)

SamanthaDawn - 17 days ago
onj -- My birthday is Msy 30th and I remember being able to tan on the lawn on my birthday, and sleep in a tent. (It's not always THAT nice by my birthday, but usually it is) As long as the snow is gone by then i'll be wearing the flip flops ^_^ Maybe even a dress, I hated weasring pants after my c-section!

onj - 17 days ago
Ohh I hope it's warm enough for flip flops in May! I remember taking my 2nd home from the hospital on May 22, and it was FREEZING cold! But, that doesn't mean it will happen this time :) Happy Mother's day to those celebrating. My hubby always gets me plants for mothers day (last year he bought me a rose bush), but I'm worried I might not feel much like gardening in May this year lol. Is anyone else starting to feel huge? I had a cupcake at my mothers today after dinner and caught myself eating it in the mirror and thought 'oh gross, I do not need to be eating this!' Lol. I ate it anyway :)

elisiaxx - 18 days ago
I am celebrating Mother's day today :) me my partner and little girl have had a wonderful day and have been truly spoilt :) I need to start buying bit's for my hospital bag, in fat I need to start buying the baby things I haven't got anything yet! I am sooo behind

SamanthaDawn - 18 days ago
mummytoharrison-- It's mothers day where you are? Here it's not till the second Sunday of May. ...happy mothers day to you! Now I feel like celebrating lol Mothers day should be every day anyway. I'm gonna go put my sore feet up because I worked this morning. :)

SamanthaDawn - 18 days ago
jaybird-- I went bowling with my kids over march break and it was so awkward, my big belly in the way made me not be able to roll it straight and I kept getting gutter balls (maybe my big belly wasn't 100% the reason why I sucked at bowling, but that's my story and I'm stickin' to it! ;) I felt like I looked rediculous and my mother WOULD NOT STOP taking pictures of me every time it was my turn lol
