29 Weeks


Big babies!!!!! We had an appointment with the Peri yesterday. Noah (Baby A) is now head down, which if he stays that way "might" give us the option of a vaginal delivery. Aaden is not head down, but I guess Baby B can be turned or will drop once Baby A is out. Noah weighs 2 lbs. 15 oz. and Aaden is 3 lbs. 1 oz. A is measuring one day ahead and B is measuring 5 days ahead.

The cervix was still stable, closed, and the same length as last time. No more cervical length checks because at this time the cervix should begin to shorten. I go back to the Peri in four weeks for a growth scan.

Baby’s energy is surging, thanks to the formation of white fat deposits beneath the skin. (Have those kicks and jabs to the ribs tipped you off yet?) Baby is also settling into sleep and waking cycles, though -- as you’ve also probably noticed -- they don’t necessarily coincide with your own. Also this month, all five senses are finally functional, and the brain and nervous system are going through major developments. http://www.thebump.com/

Your baby now weighs about 2 1/2 pounds (like a butternut squash) and is a tad over 15 inches long from head to heel. His muscles and lungs are continuing to mature, and his head is growing bigger to make room for his developing brain. To meet his increasing nutritional demands, you'll need plenty of protein, vitamins C, folic acid, and iron. And because his bones are soaking up lots of calcium, be sure to drink your milk (or find another good source of calcium, such as cheese, yogurt, or enriched orange juice). This trimester, about 250 milligrams of calcium are deposited in your baby's hardening skeleton each day. http://www.babycenter.com/

Wow, those are some good-sized babies!! So glad to hear things are going well (with the exception of the lack of sleep but this too shall pass).

Your nursery looks gorgeous!!! It looks so cozy and comfy. My husband is a total procrastinator so when I got put on bedrest during both pregnancies, he never finished the nurseries. Can you believe that the room still aren't completed??? He got as far as painting them but that was about it. Once Garrett and Landon were born, I ended up just sticking some Nemo stickers to the wall for them to at least have some color to their room!
