YAY last week of month 6 and then the 3rd Trimester and month 7! I also have less than 99 days until my due date. WOOT!
Lets see, the past few days Shelby has not been that active, I am wondering if she is going through a growth spurt or something. My stomach has grown and I am sad to say I have started getting a few stretch marks on my stomach…. I never got any with the other girls. BOO!
Oh and the comments have started…. my friends are telling me I look so little for being basically 7 months, but then I get the comments like “suck that baby in” …. I just walk away from the rude ones. I am sure I’ll get PLENTY more of them. I know people mean well, but sometimes they just don’t think.
oh how about the one “kids are so much work, why the heck do you want another one?” ….
or, “ohhh….. another girl huh…. I bet you wanted a boy right? I guess that means you guys will go for #4?” ……
Your Baby in Week 26 of Pregnancy
What’s up with your baby? She now weighs about a pound and two-thirds and measures 14 inches (an English hothouse cucumber) from head to heel.. And this week, her eyes, which until now were developing under fused eyelids, start to open. Of course, there’s not much to see in there, but if your baby spots a bright light (or hears a loud noise) near your belly, you may notice an increase in fetal activity. (“Hey, I’m in here, Mommy! Where’s the party!”) What accounts for that response? Her brain is more developed and sophisticated.
