Our Pregnancy: 28 Weeks!
One more week down, and after all that happened within this past week I am just thankful to be able to check one more off on the calendar and very much looking forward to checking off MANY more in the coming months. I just want to get through the next month at least and see how things are looking then. It is crazy how unpredictable a twin pregnancy can be - I feel in my gut that things are going to be ok and that we have many more weeks of baby baking ahead of us, but I know how unsettling and stressful this has been for everyone too! I hope as the days pass uneventfully we'll all be able to feel a little more reassured that things are going to be ok in time...
Here is what's going on this week!
Week Twenty Eight: May recognize your voice
|You are 28 weeks pregnant. (fetal age 26 weeks)|
Your uterus will be about 3 inches (7cm) above your bellybutton. During this time of your pregnancy, your belly will grow about half an inch (1cm) each week. If you have been following a nutritious, balanced meal plan, your total weight gain is probably between 17 and 24 pounds (7.5 and 10.5 Kg).
Branches of lungs are quite developed now, so there is a good chance that baby would survive if born prematurely now. If your baby is born this week, the chances of survival is now at least 90 percent. However, some complications are still possible.
I sort of feel like with all this time laying down the girls have moved up a little - my upper belly feels fuller than it did a couple days ago! I've been feeling them moving a lot, kicks, little punches and some wiggling too. :) I am ready to hear how things are looking at our next ultrasound and get an idea of what the RE and my IPs are thinking is the best game plan going forward for the next week!
Here's a pic from this evening, laptop on my knees and Brutus cuddled up against my belly keeping me company... :) I was trying to get some video of the babies kicking but got a cute picture instead. :)
