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.

Some women's who have really really fast labours tear really bad!! So it like a catch 22....no matter what ur in agony for an extended period of time.

pumpkinfairy - 10 days ago
thanx ladies for your thoughts and prayers I have had babies at 32 weeks, 34 weeksand the rest at 36 weeks, so far this little guy is hanging in there. I came down with a cold it sucks!!! gosh I wish I had fast labors my sons girlfriend at age 18 was in labor 2 hrs tops and had him without pain meds, I'm like jeepers why cant my body do that lol

lexy-b - 12 days ago
Pumpkin I hope everything works out. Take care of yourself and take it easy!

floydianslip2 - 12 days ago
Wow Pumpkin, take it as easy as possible, I am definitely sending well wishes your way!

babylove5 - 12 days ago
Pumpkin I am actually more worried about your health than the baby. I hope once you have the baby your b pressure will be low and your blood sugar will stay normal. Take good care of yourself! Your child needs you! I will say a prayer for you health. I hope u hv a good cardiologist. That's what you need.

babylove5 - 12 days ago
Lexy, you did have a extremely fast labor. You definitely should be concerned. I know when I use the epo it slows down the pain and I'm afraid I'll be a 10 and think I'm a 5.

babylove5 - 12 days ago
Floy, I lost it with my MIL and told her exactly what I thought about her. The woman was always sticking her nose where it didn't belong and I put her in her place. I don't regret it and I haven't had any issues w her since. We are polite and I send her a card on her b day. We take the kids to see her like once a year, other than that she can stay away. 😃 I don't invite her to bday parties or Christmas. I don't like her and she knows it.

sher-baby - 12 days ago
Thanks!!! I bought a medela double pump, fenugreek, I'll be drinking lots of gateraid and eating oatmeal every morning! Plus I'll be pumping while I nurse and afterwards for about 10mins...

lexy-b - 12 days ago
You can do it Sher! I had lots of trouble but it eventually came. Set yourself a goal, like I'll try 4 weeks. That helped me when I was ready to give up.

Sher-baby - 12 days ago
oh wow pumpkinfairy!! hopefully that does the trick tho...hopefully your lil baby can hang on until at least 37 weeks!! anh holly damn lexy!! 3 hrs!!! wooow...that's all I can say. I was in labour for about 14 hrs with my daughter and I thought that was a lil fast, but 3hrs takes the cake. im a lil worried to about breast feeding, but im determined to be successful this time!! its my mission!! LOL

pumpkinfairy - 12 days ago
well its official I am taken out of work as of yesterday, they told me I had protein of 300 in my 24 hr urine in january, todays results were not back yet, my blood pressure remains high, was 150/80 today and dr said if goes to 160/105 go in asap, I guess this is due to my type 2 diabetes, and my age (45) plus a prolapsed valve in my heart. I'm scared, but I was told he can safely be born in 2 weeks!

lexy-b - 12 days ago
Its hard not to stress about what's happening now or what will happen. I worry about making it to the hospital too. My last labour was 3 hours, I got to the hospital at 3am and my little boy was born at 3:27. I am afraid to have a baby in a van lol. I dont think we'll have time to wait for my mil to come so we'll wake up our neighbors or bring the kids to the hospital with us & she can meet us there.

floydianslip2 - 12 days ago
See, you have rational fears at least! Those are the things I should be worried about! You know what’s not an irrational worry that I have right now? My MIL’s visit this weekend. UGH!!! Drama already, I am not looking forward to this. It’s our big boy’s 5th birthday on Sunday and we have a lot to do, but somehow she’s made this weekend all about her… We are even expected to take her to the airport just before his party starts on Sunday! I hope I get through without losing my cool…

babylove5 - 12 days ago
We are still snowed in! Floy, I'm concerned with making it to the hospital in time. I am waiting until I have had labor pains at least 10 hours since it was 15 hours from start to finish last time. I will hv to wait on my parents to get here and they are 1 hour and half away. I also hv to drive 15 min to my hospital. Once I'm there idk if I'll hv time for epi or how I'll be. Then my next concern will be breastfeeding, getting him on a schedule, getting my other children adjusted to their new brother and dealing with jealousy. This is my fifth and I hv gained 30 or so w each and lost every bit w no issues, so I know that won't be a problem. It's still a lot of adjustment. I hope I cope well w the stress.

sher-baby - 13 days ago
I'm more worried about after baby....money, stress, lack of sleep, everyone adjusting, getting my body back!!!!....am I going to be crying everyday because in stressed?? Will DH be understanding??? That's what I'm more worried about. The labour, not so much....other than hoping he's healthy with no conplications.

floydianslip2 - 13 days ago
Is anyone else starting to get nervous about what's to come? I've more or less blocked the whole labor and delivery reality, but the closer it comes the more nervous I'm getting. It's so silly, it's not like this is my first baby, but all of a sudden I'm terrified of what my body is about to do! Gotta love these irrational fears...

floydianslip2 - 13 days ago
RJean, I packed two sleepers, one gown, two hats, socks, mittens, two receiving blankets, my boppy, and two burp cloths. Nothing for me yet, but I have a list of what I’d like to bring ready to go at least. I have my car seat ready to go, we just need to install the base. The hospital we’re going to offers a service where they have an on-site clinic that will help you install and make sure it’s safe, so DH is going to run down there before we’re discharged and have them install everything for us. Pumpkinfairy, keep us posted, you’re definitely in my prayers!

sher-baby - 13 days ago
Sorry to hear pumpkinfairy!! I hope things work out for you! Maybe being off work alone will help keep baby put for a few more weeks. Rjean- I have not purchased the herbs...I'd love to but I'm trying to watch my spending. As much as they would be beneficial to me, the baby still needs stuff, so we'll see if I get a chance to buy them!!! I would realy love to tho! I too have started my bag but still have a long way to go. I still need more pads and big ugly underwear, another pair of pj's, a house coat...and maybe a few more odds and ends. My baby bag is packed tho...he's all set! It's just me and DH that need to do ours

babylove5 - 13 days ago
rjean, I have packed my pjs and socks. I also have a bag of peppermints and peanuts. I always bring food I like. The baby's bag is packed. He has a swaddle blanket, two extra soft blankets, 1 sleeper and 1 gown, socks, and gloves to keep him from having germs on his hands or scratching himself, paci and paci keeper. I had a lady make him a white hat and booties to wear home with his white and blue sleeper. The car seat is ready with a new head support. I didn't like the one grace sent. I guess I hv everything for him and not much for me. I'm excited to see him! The hospital only gives them one blanket and I want my baby to be extra comfortable laying on his soft blankets!

babylove5 - 13 days ago
Wow pumpkin! I will send up a prayer that your baby is born when it's lung are developed. Let us know.

pumpkinfairy - 13 days ago
hi ladies I havent posted in awhile, good to see you all doing well, I however have started having blod pressure issues and my last ob appointment they said they would keep an eye on it, went for an nst test yesterday and it was up so I was sent to labor and delivery for monitoring, they had me do a 24 hr urine collection to check for protein, as they think I may be getting preclampsia, if thats the case theyre taking me out of work and possibly taking the baby, the sad part is its an hr and half from home :( good luck to you all and I will try and keep you posted

RJean - 13 days ago
Has anyone started packing their hospital bag? I've put some toiletries together, but I haven't done any baby laundry (and therefore can't pack the babies bag) and I have no idea what else to pack early. I also have a feeling that the more excited I get to pack the bag, the longer its going to seem until I actually need to use the darned thing. Sher-baby, did you end up buying all of the herbs to make those awesome sounding post pregnancy pads?

sher-baby - 13 days ago
Rjean- haha!! Everything I do standing I need to take a break every 10mins. Today I was cooking chicken and was like 'screw it, I'm deep frying it so I don't have to stand up and watch it on the stove!' Lol...so I feel ur pain! I'm glad things are looking up for ur baby. I have no clue what mine is weighing...hopefully not to big.

RJean - 13 days ago
I had my apt yesterday and was measuring small (again), but the ob was trying to find position and found baby stretched out to the four compass points and figured his weird position plus my long torso just means that I will always measure small. At 32 weeks, baby was measuring 4.4 lbs so he's right on for size even though my fundal height is all kinds of off. I have a good friend flying in today. I keep trying to clean the house and then have to rest every 10 minutes. I've consigned myself to the fact that my house will never, ever be clean again.

sher-baby - 13 days ago
Well I had my apt today..baby is still head down and looks good. I've gained 3lbs in 3 weeks(phew...better than 6!!) niw I start going every 2 weeks...it's getting a lil scary!

babylove5 - 13 days ago
Baby lump a lot of men cheat, it's in their nature, it's only the ones that think of the consequence that don't. I know a lot of women that stay simply because of the money and I don't think there is right or wrong. I think it's whatever makes the woman feel best. I told my daughter life is no fairy tale and for her to always look out for herself. If one man messes up there is always another one that's waiting to make you happy. You did nothing wrong other than pick the wrong guy to marry. Make sure you get all the child support you need for every child, they deserve the best!

sher-baby - 14 days ago
Sorry babylump! Try and stay strong...I know it's hard! My DH got served with MORE court papers for his 'oops baby' and she's asking for more money!! And I'm like 'damn chick!!!!...how is 'he' suppose to live!!!' It's like she's purposly trying to suck him dry! He's been paying support for this baby that he didn't want in the first place because it's the right thing to do, but some girls take it too far because their mad!!! Not that it's any concern of hers but with me only working part time, it really makes things hard!!! I too think sometimes 'how am I going to figure this out?!?!...how am I going to support 2 kids when shit just hit the fan!!!' DH and I are good now and have come a LOONG way but I still sometimes get angry, thinking about how things would be so much easier if DH and this chick didn't eff up and have this 'oops baby'...sigh! So I'm with you girl!!! But things tend to just 'work out'!! And things will for u too!!

babylumpp2015 - 14 days ago
& babylove I did phone call after phone call about birth certificate yesterday because the LAST thing I need is my ex responsible for this baby. I can use my maiden name for her last name & I dont need to add him as father but until the divorce is final I won't be able to add the baby's father on either. Although since I have all legal paperwork stating our divorce will be finalized end of May all we need to do is sign, since all assets are already split that the hospital may be able to work with me on it.

babylumpp2015 - 14 days ago
too cute! The girls finally got to play & had a massive snowball fight and ganged up on me! We also got to build a mini snowman, so snow day was finally successful! Gaining a tax return is AWESOME this yr, especially w my situation, so i'm going to pre-pay 3 months ahead so I dont have to stress for a little while because I have NO clue what I'm doing after this little babe arrives or how I'm going to work or afford anything, how did I get here!? How am I single mom? Life seemed so perfect 4 years ago, aside from the constant cheating husband. Sometimes in all the financial struggle I want to collapse & go back but I know it's best for myself & kids to move forward.

sher-baby - 14 days ago
That's cute...we went out a few weeks ago and my daughter used those cheapie crazy carpets...she's sooo awkward she kept sliding off it half way down....she would scream 'I can't stay on!!!!...' As she laughed! Lol but I was tired afterwards and all I did was stay at the top and push her!!!

babylove5 - 14 days ago
The boys want to go sledding again today! They have these little circles they sit on that look like tupaware lids. They take off after one good push. My baby loves it. It's his first big snow!

babylove5 - 14 days ago
I haven't seen a tax return in 4 years. My hubby owes the government money for some bad business deals. He had to get a lawyer and everything they take 30 percent of every pay check and all tax return money. It's almost paid and it's the cost of a nice house. 😣 I knew nothing about it until one of my friends who happened to be a cop showed up at his office. It was in the news paper and everything. Needless to say we had to move out of that town because of his stupid choices.

sher-baby - 14 days ago
When I got laid off from my job in August, I had about $8000.00 in savings...but after buying baby stuff, paying bills, contributing to the house hold so DH doesn't have to do it all on his own...it's all pretty much gone! Working part time is good for my body but my bank account is in ruins! lol so a tax return would be nice at the moment.

babylumpp2015 - 14 days ago
Yay floydianslip! That's what I'm waiting for that feeling where it's like ok, if she comes I'm ready. & the diapers, oh the diapers! I just got my youngest out of them a few months ago, so not looking forward to the purchasing of them again! Sher-baby this is the first time in years since I get to file legally seperated I get a return back! I am very excited I am go to pre-pay some rent & bills and of course baby shop, finally! So excited!

sher-baby - 14 days ago
33 weeks tomorrow!! I Havent gotten any money back on my taxes for about 2yrs because I have an outstanding student loan!!! So the government keeps all my tax returns! I'm just hoping our shower brings us lots of gifts!!! :-) today baby has been kicking my stomach...everytime he kicks I feel like I need to burp!! Gross!!

floydianslip2 - 15 days ago
I know what you mean babylump! I got my tax returns last week and managed to get a ton of things still on my “to get” list, it’s such a good feeling! I think I’m almost ready now, I got my diaper bag packed, my breast pump is all ready to go and has new parts for it, I really only need a swing and a stroller and I’m done. Oh, and diapers, I need to start stocking up on those too. My big thing now is I need to start prepping at work for going out, that’s going to be interesting. I’m starting to get so excited!

babylumpp2015 - 15 days ago
33 weeks! But there's still so much to do! Hoping this weekend I can get crib and more baby items & get my girls their bunk beds so they have room to actually play in their room. I am so ready for tax pay day so I can feel like I'm prepared for this little one!

Juliemom24 - 110 days ago
Kathy, glad that Jonah is still doing well. How well does he latch? What are they monitoring him for (besides weight?) I am totally curious because my baby is weighing about that much and they are talking about inducing.

Juliemom24 - 110 days ago
Oh Deebo, I'm so sorry. I lived far away from family when I had my last one and my mom had just passed away a month and a half earlier. Everything will work out, I promise.

kathy=^.^= - 112 days ago
I came home yesterday but baby Jonah had to stay in the NICU he is doing good tho. He is so tiny he weighs 3lbs 11oz now. He is truly amazing and I feel so blessed that we both survived that traumatic experience. I did finally get to breast feed today only once but better than none. Hope everyone is doing good

deebo - 113 days ago
Wow Kathy! Congratulations, and how scary. I keep feeling like something similar is going to happen to me, glad to hear you both are okay though. I've gone into panic mode. Whose going to watch my kids when baby decides to come?! I have no family that's close (well I do, but none willing to help!!!) My mom's 5 hours away, and mother in law is 2 hours away.. So, I may be alone in the delivery room... : upsetting. I have super bad round ligament cramps. I hope something works out.. Trying to get my mom to come down for the month of December.. Bluhh so stressful!

lissie**** - 114 days ago
Oh Kathy! I'm so happy you and baby are okay!!! I have been concerned about you this whole pregnancy. And your baby held on and you too. What a tramatic delivery. But what a miracle you have! I'll bet you will feel tired for a while. After my P.abruption I was tired for months. But it does eventually get better!! Congratulations dear on a special special baby!!!!

Juliemom24 - 116 days ago
Congratulations Kathy! So exciting (and scary for you) but I'm so glad that he is doing well and at a good weight. Keep us updated on how he is doing? How are you feeling and recovering?

kathy=^.^= - 117 days ago
I had my baby yesterday emergency c section. I was loading the dish washer then all of a sudden my water broke then I noticed a bunch of blood i knew something was wrong. Went to the er and i had a completed placenta adruption. I was scared out of my Mind my baby is in NICU HE WEIGHS 4lbs 2 oz and he is doing good. I

Juliemom24 - 117 days ago
That's great Kathy. Your baby is measuring bigger than mine right now. Last Thursday he was 3lb 11oz. I hope that he is at least 4lbs by now. That's good that your Dr. isn't worried. Sometimes I think that my office is too paranoid. After 3 weeks of ultrasounds and NST that have been perfect I think I just have a small baby and they are freaking out for no reason. Of course, it's good to be cautious.

kathy=^.^= - 118 days ago
My ultra sound went good my baby boy is so beautiful. The baby was measuring small he was at 30 weeks and I'm 33 weeks. The dr said he's on the small side but he thinks it is fine. He is 4 lbs 4 oz. he is also head up! No wonder why I've been feeling kicks in my butt lol but I'm so glad that the baby looked good so excited to meet him next month :)

Juliemom24 - 119 days ago
Kathy, let us know how your ultrasound goes! I'm so glad that you've made it this far. I totally agree, I can't believe that we are so close. We are having babies NEXT month! Wohoooooo!

kathy=^.^= - 119 days ago
Wow I can't believe that it is getting close to delivery day! It seems like I was just trying to make it to my second trimester. Only 7 more weeks or less until I meet my beautiful boy. I get to have an u/s tomorrow morning my baby is measuring small but my dr didn't say by how much. I guess I'll find out tomorrow can't wait to see my baby

Juliemom24 - 119 days ago
jessicabrown, my little guy is measuring 2 weeks small so I can't relate. Was the Dr. worried at all? I've never heard of someone measuring 10 weeks ahead of schedule. Are they wanting to induce?

jessicabrown.2010@yahoo.com - 122 days ago
Hey ladies!!! So glad I've made it to 33 weeks. I do have a question. Has anyone measured really big? Dr. Is saying I am measuring 43 weeks. Should I be worried. My body sure feels like I'm 43 weeks :(
