Look who`s born! Show all comments
Week 28 starts on day 196 and goes up to day 203.
It is your 29e pregnancy week.

Length of your baby: 35 centimeter / 13.8 inches
Weight of your baby: 900 gram / 1 lbs 16 ozs

You have reached the next milestone. You are in the third and final trimester! Your baby is really starting to look like a newborn child now. His head is no longer too big compared with his body; the proportions are starting to look more normal.

The cartilage is gradually becoming bone. The baby's skull will remain soft to make birth easier. It will be well after birth before the fontanels disappear and the skull hardens.

The down or lanugo that covered the baby is starting to disappear and will be partly replaced by sebum. This is like an oily cream and will prevent the baby's skin from dehydrating. You may be able to see it just after the baby has been born. The later the birth, the less sebum will be visible.

The baby's sense of taste is developing now, as the taste buds form. Not that your baby has much to taste. Amniotic fluid is practically flavourless.

Boys and girls will start to differ in weight from about this week. Generally speaking, boys are a little heavier than girls.

Bad dreams

You may start having bad dreams. These are your fears and feelings surfacing while you sleep. Many women worry that their nightmares will come true and consequently feel very restless or scared after yet another bad dream. But that's perfectly normal and certainly does not mean they will come out! You dream every night. You will actually remember your dreams more easily now, as you sleep more lightly during pregnancy. It's nature's way of preparing you for the arrival of your baby. It ensures you'll wake up more quickly if your baby cries.

I just had a bad dream yesterday. So vivid, my Anthony face was deformed and i was holding on to him so tight i kept saying omg im sorry cause i knew it had to be my fault. I could actually feel the panic and hurt in my heart. I had to remind my self it was just a dream. I kinda enjoyed how much my heart loves him and the feeling of him being mine and my responsibility.
