28 Weeks


By this week, your baby weighs two and a quarter pounds (like a Chinese cabbage) and measures 14.8 inches from the top of his head to his heels. He can blink his eyes, which now sport lashes. With his eyesight developing, he may be able to see the light that filters in through your womb. He's also developing billions of neurons in his brain and adding more body fat in preparation for life in the outside world.

You're in the home stretch! The third and final trimester starts this week. If you're like most women, you'll gain about 11 pounds this trimester.

Babycenter has jokes! 11pounds? Please! I'll gain that in a month. Or less!

They also have a picture of what fraternal twins look like at 28 weeks. This would be best case scenario positioning. My boys are more side ways, bunk bed style.
Can you picture them in there, hangin' out?
