3rd Trimester & 28 Weeks

No matter where you look I am officially in the 3rd Trimester. Some sites say 26 wks 3 days, others 27 wks and then theres those that say 28 wks. Well, I am 28 weeks as of yesterday so there is no shadow of a doubt I am in the 3rd trimester. And oh my, that is the last trimester! Not much longer.

According to What To Expect Maddox is....

At 28 weeks pregnant, your baby may be dreaming about you, too. (Isn't that so crazy to think about...that he could be dreaming)
Brain wave activity measured in a developing fetus shows different sleep cycles, including the rapid eye movement phase, the stage when dreaming occurs.
By now, your baby, who weighs in at about two and a half pounds and stands — or rather lies — at almost 16 inches (measured head to toe) has added blinking to his or her growing bag of tricks. (Outside in the real world, blinking is necessary to help keep foreign objects out of the eyes.) Other impressive new talents being added to your baby's roster in the womb include coughing, more intense sucking, and, perhaps most important, better breathing.
The good news is that babies born this week, though premature, have an excellent prognosis because their lungs have reached the point (for the most part) of maturity — so you too can breathe a little easier now. Of course, it's still best if a baby doesn't check out of that uterine hotel just yet — there's still a lot of growing and maturing to do over the next 12 weeks

In a few days I will be doing the glucose testing...WISH ME LUCK!
