27 weeks 1 day (90 days to go)…

Maternity/Baby

Countdown: 90 days… It seems so far away and so close at the same time.. I can’t wait for October to come, but at the same time I try to enjoy every day of my pregnancy (while it’s still enjoyable, I’ve heard third trimester can be difficult)…

This week the baby will be as big as a head of cauliflower (16 in. 2.5 lbs).. Also, this week the baby may be dreaming (maybe even about his parents ;-)). Brain wave activity measured in a developing fetus shows different sleep cycles, including the rapid eye movement phase, the stage when dreaming occurs…

Now, Christian can blink too 🙂 He also can cough, and he can breath a little better…

The babies born this week, though premature, have an excellent prognosis because their lungs have reached the point (for the most part) of maturity..

Till tomorrow..

27 weeks (Third Trimester)…

Maternity/Baby

I’m 27 weeks today… And my third trimester has begun, how cool is that… I’m on my final trimester!!

All of a sudden I started to gain weight.. And when I say “gain weight” I mean a serious amount of pounds 🙂 I gained 3 lbs in 3 days (it’s a serious weight gain for me… you understand, if you’re reading my blog on a regular basis)… 2 days ago I was 107.8 and today I’m 110.2 lbs, I don’t know how that happened… I was checking my day every day before breakfast, and every day I weighed 1 lbs more 🙂 Have you noticed my chubby cheeks yet? 🙂 (You can always tell when I gain weight by my cheeks :-))

26 weeks 3 days…

Maternity/Baby

This week baby is as big as cucumber, about 15 in. in length, and will weigh more than 2 lbs.. His hearing continues to develop and he can definitely recognize parents’ voices.. Me and Daniel are trying to talk to Christian every day (I thought it would be easier to do, right now I feel like crazy mama talking to her belly :-)), and it can be a total coincidence of course, but sometimes Christian even responds by kicking 🙂

Sometimes he gets hiccups, which is totally normal.. It’s hard to say when the hiccups started, because I couldn’t differ them at first, I thought he was just moving.. But now I think I can recognize them a little better…

My weight today: 107.4 lbs (:-( eating yogurt at this moment, trying to get my protein) Total weight gain so far: 10.4 lbs..

Till tomorrow…

На этой неделе размер ребенка сравнивают с огурцом 🙂 с большим огурцом.. Рост с головы до пяток 38 см, вес около 1 кг..

Его слух продолжает развиваться и он определенно можно узнавать голоса родителей, то бишь наши.. Мы пытаемся разговаривать с ним каждый день, (но это оказалось трудней, чем казалось, потому что я чувствую себя сумасшедшей, которая разговаривает со своим животом :-)), и, может быть это и совпадение, конечно, но иногда он даже отвечает на наши голоса своими пинками 🙂

Иногда он икает, что очень даже нормально… Но мне трудно было различить икоту с просто движениями по началу.. Но сейчас я кажется уже могу определить что есть что…

Мой вес сегодня: 48.7 кг (:-( опять как прежде… ем йогурт в данный момент, пытаюсь есть белки)… Поправилась за 26 недель на : 4.7 кг..

До завтра…

26 weeks 1 day…

Maternity/Baby

Ughhhh I hate when it’s happening… I finished writing my blog post and it got deleted…so I have to start all over again 🙁 But anyways, I’m 26 weeks and 1 day pregnant today.. It’s getting more and more exciting… Belly grows, time goes, we’re closer and closer to my due date.. Soon my dr. appointments will be every 2 weeks..can’t wait (I like my dr. appt :-)) and we started to attend different classes… and all that just excite me I guess!! 🙂

Yesterday we went to breastfeeding class… It was 3.5 hours and it was very interesting and very informative, we learned a lot of new stuff, watched couple of videos and practiced to breastfeed on dolls haha… I get more and more confident that I’ll be able to breastfeed..because it’s very very possible to do, it can be hard, it can even hurt, may be I will even need some help, but is it worth it??ABSOLUTELY!!

25 weeks 4 days…(Smoothie with protein powder)

Maternity/Baby

So after yesterday doctor’s report, I decided to go for that protein and more calories (he advised me to eat 1800 calories daily)… I’m tired of all the fruits (I eat watermelon though, but it’s not as useful as some other fruit), so the only option was to make smoothies or shakes..and add a little protein powder to make a smoothie even more useful… So I tried it today… Continue reading “25 weeks 4 days…(Smoothie with protein powder)”


25 weeks 3 days…

Maternity/Baby

So I didn’t have glucose test today.. 🙁 I already prepared..morally…I was ready to drink whatever they were supposed to give me… And I didn’t eat in the morning, even though I could eat some protein.. But I thought it might be better if I don’t eat anything (better chances to pass the test, I thought :-)) But the nurse told me it’s better to eat something before the test, so that I don’t get sick after ( I guess that juice they give so nasty, that it can make me vomit )…  Continue reading “25 weeks 3 days…”
