Week 27

I am 27 weeks!

I have made it to the third trimester!!!  The baby should be about 2 pounds and 14.5 inches long. The baby should look similar to what he will look like at birth, except thinner and smaller. His lungs, liver, and immune system still need to fully mature, but if born now, he should have a decent chance of surviving. 
I can't believe how soon it will be before the baby arrives!  The more I feel him move, the more real it seems.  Speaking of movements, he is very active.  This past week I have felt him all throughout the day and night.  He hasn't been moving mostly at night like before.  The highlight of my week was in the tub when the baby would kick and it would make the water ripple slightly.  I could have sat there for hours and just watched that!  It was the coolest thing.  I have become obsessed with holding and rubbing my stomach.  I love feeling his movements and know that I will miss that once he is born.

  3. Hi! stopping by from SITS! I remember those days really well. And I do miss them...
    I was in a work meeting one day and my son's foot or knee, not sure rubbed along the top of my belly and it was highly visible. I caught everyone (mostly men) staring at my belly watching right along with me. Kind of odd... The only thing I dont' miss is when he had hiccups right next to my bladder...
