28 Weeks pregnant

Week 28 starts on day 196 and goes up to day 203. It is your twenty-ninth pregnancy week.


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

Your pregnancy at 28 weeks 

 

What's happening with mum 

You are now entering your third trimester and while you might be feeling energetic and ready for the birth, you may also find yourself tired from carrying the weight of your growing baby. You might also find you get less sleep especially if you are experiencing leg cramps or tingling during the night.

These sharp shooting pains, tingling or numbness usually start in your lower back or buttocks and radiate down your legs and are known as sciatica.

These pains are usually caused by the position of your baby, shifting as he tries to find the proper birthing position. Try taking a warm bath or using heated pads to help alleviate this pain which may ease off as your baby moves again but can also come back intermittenty until the birth.

 

What's happening with baby

At 28 weeks your baby's may be opening and closing his eyes which may now be showing some colour as pigment develops. Baby is practicing blinking which is important after birth to help keep the eye free from foreign objects such as dust.

As his brain continues to develop, some important functions such as the thalamocortical complex become active. The thalamocortical complex is believed to be responsible for consciousness.

    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.
