What I'm Looking Forward to: This week's doctor's appointment, being able to hear the heartbeat. and just laying in bed feeling her move, I could do that for hours.

Weekly Wisdom: If she's not moving 24/7, it doesn't mean something's wrong with her.

Milestones: 29 weeks AHHHH!

What baby is up to and how you're feeling:
Your baby is growing rapidly. This week he weighs about 2 1/2 pounds (like a butternut squash) and is a tad over 15 inches long from head to heel. Her muscles and lungs are continuing to mature, and her head is getting bigger to accommodate her growing brain — which is busy developing billions of neurons. Every day, about 200 milligrams of calcium is deposited in your baby's skeleton, which is now hardening. With this rapid growth, it's no surprise that your baby's nutritional needs reach their peak during this trimester.
I've been feeling good, just tired.
