Baby’s 28st week of pregnancy
Our baby measures approximately 27 centimeters from head to tailbone, and weighs between 1 and 200 grams.
At the sensory level, our baby has been hearing the internal noises of our body for a few weeks now, but also our voices, especially ours and that of the father. Moreover, we can tell the future dad to come closer to our belly to talk to the baby.
A curious thing: if our baby jumps at certain noises heard for the first time, he no longer reacts in the same way to these same noises when he hears them again. Fetal acoustics researchers see in this a memorization of sounds. Finally, it is safer not to go too much to concert halls and places that are too noisy.
The 28st week of pregnancy on our side
Nothing to report! The pregnancy is ongoing. Our heart beats faster and we quickly feel short of breath. Our figure is still rounded and, now, our weight gain is around 400 grams per week. You can continue to follow your weight curve to avoid too much weight gain in the weeks to come.
Headaches are quite common during the 1st trimester and rarely worrying. On the other hand, in the 2nd and 3rd trimesters, these headaches can be warning signs of a serious complication: pre-eclampsia. It is also recognized by the hands, feet and face which swell in a relatively short time, eye disorders, ringing in the ears, dizziness and pain in the chest. We must then go to the maternity ward as soon as possible, because the consequences can be serious for us and our baby.
Haven’t we found any ideas for our baby’s first name yet? We do not despair and we listen to each other!
