"This week, your baby weighs almost 2 pounds (like a head of cauliflower) and is about 14 1/2 inches long with her legs extended. She's sleeping and waking at regular intervals, opening and closing her eyes, and perhaps even sucking her fingers. With more brain tissue developing, your baby's brain is very active now. While her lungs are still immature, they would be capable of functioning — with a lot of medical help — if she were to be born now. Chalk up any tiny rhythmic movements you may be feeling to a case of baby hiccups, which may be common from now on. Each episode usually lasts only a few moments, and they don't bother her, so just relax and enjoy the tickle."
I don't have much time for an update this week but I will post something about our weekend later. Today is my 28 week appointment at the doctor's office and I will have my glucose test done. I'm hoping and praying for good results!!
I am 31 years old and I am married to the most amazing husband ever! We have been married for seven years, and I can honestly say the time has flown by! We live in Birmingham, AL and love Alabama football, traveling and spending time with friends and family. Most recently we found out we are going to add to our family and we are due with our second baby in October 2012!! We could not be happier about the journey we are about to embark on. I am an average girl with a HUGE heart. I love life and wouldn't be here today without the love and support of my family. My mom and my husband are the two most important people to me and I can honestly say that I don't know where I would be without them.
