{27 weeks}

How your baby's growing:

This week, your baby weighs almost 2 pounds (like a head of cauliflower) and is about 14 1/2 inches long with her legs extended. She's sleeping and waking at regular intervals, opening and closing her eyes, and perhaps even sucking her fingers. With more brain tissue developing, your baby's brain is very active now. While her lungs are still immature, they would be capable of functioning — with a lot of medical help — if she were to be born now. Chalk up any tiny rhythmic movements you may be feeling to a case of baby hiccups, which may be common from now on. Each episode usually lasts only a few moments, and they don't bother her, so just relax and enjoy the tickle.

  • How far along? 27 weeks, 6 days
  • Total weight gain/loss: Not sure, but I've lost some weight from a bad colitis flare :(
  • Sleep: Evan crashed his bike BAD on Tuesday night, so we haven't been sleeping much.
  • Best moment this week: Hmm, it's been a rough week. Very glad Violet is still bouncing around in there.
  • Movement: Lots.
  • Food cravings: KFC mashed potatoes. Mmm.
  • Gender: Girl :)
  • Labor Signs: Not yet, thank goodness.
  • Belly Button in or out? Still in.
  • What I miss: Pretty much all food... been on the BRAT diet ever since my colitis flared up.
  • What I am looking forward to: Being healthy again, and Evan feeling better ASAP.
  • Weekly Wisdom: Mean it when you say "in sickness and in health," because there are no guarantees that sickness won't come along a lot earlier than you think.
  • Milestones: Evan and I saw a body part move under my belly skin this Monday. So crazy.
