Baby #2 - 28 Weeks

Yesterday marked 28 weeks and brought on lots of pressure, braxton hicks, cramping, and claustrophobia.
This week was tough, as our daycare was closed for four days and the back-up daycare we arranged (a month ago) cancelled twice last minute. One of the days we didn't even know until 7:30am! Talk about stressful. We both ended up having to take time off work on Friday, Monday, and Tuesday. Work is crazy right now for both of us, so while I tried to enjoy my days home with Hunter, it was a challenge being out of the office. Fortunately, Grandma and Grandpa were able to come up and spend Wednesday with Hunter while we both caught up in the office. Thank you!
Robert saw my belly yesterday and noticed baby boy looks a lot lower. I think he flipped positions a few days ago and I am hoping he is head down. I have an appointment tomorrow for a heartbeat check and our next ultrasound is at 32 weeks so we'll know within the next month what he is doing in there. 
What's baby up to?

By this week, your baby weighs 2 1/4 pounds (about the size of a large eggplant) 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 her brain and adding more body fat in preparation for life in the outside world.


  1. One of the best things you can have is a day spent with Hunter!!! ❤️❤️❤️

  2. Hope Baby A is head down for you at your next u/s!
