Week Twenty Eight: May recognize your voice
|You are 28 weeks pregnant.
Brain waves show rapid eye movement (REM) sleep, which means your baby may be dreaming. Eyelids are opening. Eye color may change within the first six months of life especially if your baby’s eyes are blue or gray-blue at birth. She can recognize your voice now and will often calm to it later after birth.
Your uterus will be about 3 inches above your bellybutton. During this time of your pregnancy, your belly will grow about half an inch each week.
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.
Holy torpedo belly….
My next doctor’s appointment is this Tuesday. I think it’ll be the routine pee in a cup, measure my belly and send me on my way. I think I’ll have one more monthly doctor’s appointment and then after that, we’ll be down to every other week! How crazy is that?!?
