Week 28 Day 3 - Third Trimester Pregnancy Changes


Since we are officially in the third trimester, I figured I would look into what to expect from the next couple months. This is what I have learned.

  • The baby is now the size of an eggplant.
  • The lungs are mature enough that, if the baby were born today, it has a pretty good chance of surviving. 
  • She is putting on layers of fat.
  • She weighs anywhere from 1.5 to 2.5 pounds.
  • She measures 13.6 to 14.8 inches long.
  • My wife thinks she has had a few Braxton Hicks contractions.
  • She has plenty of energy but according to some pregnancy sources that will start to fade away in the third trimester. She will start getting worn out, and tired, quickly.
  • She has some spider veins, but that is normal and will fade after delivery.
  • Some unexplained bruising. One on her leg that looks pretty brutal. But she doesn't even know where it's from. The doctor reassured her that the elevated hormones make the body sensitive to bruising.
  • Still no stretch marks!
  • The baby is shifting around all day in her stomach, she seems to like to hear her daddy's voice!
  • She can't see her legs when she looks down while standing up!
