26 wks

I got in from work just as he was finishing putting the crib together...(see who makes every pic..haha)

Gotta love baby girl's expression..hehe

Our little family pre-Davis

In the beginning his movements were very light. Now, however, it feels like he is fighting inside of me. (Davis, I know you're anxious to be in my arms but it's not quite time hehe) Sometimes, it's both sides at the same time. The first few times it startled me. He is passing the 14-inch mark and his weight climbs to nearly 2 pounds. The books say that you may even hear your baby's heartbeat from the outside if someone puts his head on your belly. It also says that baby is probably still in the breech position (head up) at this point because of my pear-shape uterus offers him more legroom that way. Which I agree 100% that his legs are low. ha Although he's still wrinkly, baby is now at 25 percent of his expected birthweight, and he's going to really pile on the ounces in the next couple of months. His spine is getting stronger, and if he were born now, he would have an 80 percent chance of survival. He's now capable of inhaling, exhaling, and even crying. That lanugo hair that grew all over his body is rapidly disappearing, and it will probably be completely gone by the end of the 7th month except for some fuzz on his back and shoulders. Your baby's eyes are becoming more sensitive; if you were to shine a light on your belly, he would notice.
