Week 28

This post is a bit late as I will be 29 weeks tomorrow!  I can't believe we are 11 weeks away.  We spent week 28 in Seattle hiking and enjoying the cool weather.  Now we are back in Texas and soaking up the HEAT.  Luckily the neighbors have a pool so Jason and I have been swimming and cooling off over there.  I think the baby went through a growth spirt over the last few days because I am certainly bigger and the baby is more active.  

Jason and I recently found out that the the Zinser relatives pitched in and got us the CRIB we wanted so that is really exciting.  I can't wait to get Baby W's room set up and then of course the arrival!  I feel like we have made it to the home stretch :)

Fetal development in pregnancy week 28:fetus in seventh month You know how you’ve been feeling a bit like a barn with legs? Well, that feeling won’t subside before… well, you know, when you finally give birth. For the time being, you’ve got yourself a baby in the business of collecting fat and lots of it! In spite of the dubious joys of being a human-barn, this baby fat business is very serious and you’ve got to put up with it because it’s going to keep your little porker warm and healthy after birth. Other good stuff from inside: their eyes are doing lots of blinking this week because they’re now able to respond to light and dark. Also, their industrious little bone marrow is now a major construction site for developing red blood cells, while their super-cute adrenal glands are actually producing androgen and estrogen—which will stimulate your hormones to begin milk production. Can you say, “Moo?”
