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
How far along? 28 weeks
Total weight gain/loss: 10 lbs
Maternity clothes? Yes and I love them. I still wear my regular jeans on the weekend though

Sleep: Love it and I don’t get up much throughout the night unless we don’t have the humidifier on.
Best moment this week: Non-baby related…COLTS WINNING THE AFC CHAMPIONSHIPS!
Movement: He’s very active and I can tell what his sleep patterns are. He’s been flipping a lot lately too.
Food cravings: Veggies, steak, cheese sauce, salt and vinegar chips and my new love... Bailey's flavored ice cream, oh and now Brach’s Jelly Beans. Thanks Tri for that one!
Labor Signs: nada, but I am getting Braxton Hicks Contractions
Belly Button in or out? in, but it’s starting to get more shallow
