Anyway, this week has been interesting. Jason left for Brazil last Sunday (for 3 weeks), so it has been pretty quiet around here. I have done a LOT of relaxing, but I'm starting to get a little lonely. Our dog tries to keep me occupied, but he can't speak English, so there's only so much he can do ;). I keep praying that the time will go by quickly so that he'll be home again and a week has already passed, so I think I'll be ok :).
My back hasn't been hurting as bad lately, which is nice, but I still wake up every few nights with reflux. I'm going to talk to my doctor about it tomorrow and hopefully it will be a thing of the past. All-in-all I've been doing pretty well and feeling good :). I only have enough energy to do a couple of errands/chores at a time, but I'm slowly getting the house organized. I've gotten more stretch marks lately, which stinks, but it's all part of pregnancy. The worst part is that my stomach has started to itch because of the stretching. The cocoa butter industry must love pregnant women... they've gotten a lot of my business ;).
I guess that's about all I have to say about this week, so I'll move on to the GAME, yay! :) I set up an account at ExpectNet.com for everyone to enter their birth guesses. His gender has been confirmed 3 times now (and probably again tomorrow), so I hope no one enters "girl" or you'll be penalized 400 points ;). You don't need to create an account to enter guesses, you just go to the following website and enter how much you think he'll weigh, what day he will be born, etc.
I will also put a banner on the side of the page so you can access it anytime that way. Enter as many guesses as you want! When I get closer to my due date, I'll close the pool so nobody can cheat ;). When Logan finally arrives, I'll post who the winner is :).
And now, on to the development details:
- Your baby continues to grow and develop inside of you. Measuring just under 15 inches long, he weighs approximately 2 1/4 lbs. He will continue to gain body fat in the coming weeks to prepare him for life outside of your womb.
- At 28 weeks, your baby can recognize your voice! His eyes continue to develop this week and his brain is developing millions of neurons. The hair on his head continues to grow. Muscle tone in his body steadily develops, and even though his lungs are now capable of breathing air, it would be difficult for him if he were born now.
