Bumpdate @ 23 Weeks


Massive kicks!


I don't have a whole lot to report really this week. We've been crazy busy with the kids because of the Easter Holidays, and all the noise and activity must have been lulling baby to sleep all day becuase no sooner have I settled down with my feet up in the evening, or crawled into bed, then Baby Bean starts doing star jumps and cartwheels in my belly!

Hubby is feeling the kicks really strongly now, and I can see my belly move with the force of them if I happen to be watching at the right moment.

It's all starting to feel very real now. Even Jack and Tom have felt baby move, Georgie is still a bit young to really understand it be we're trying to keep him included in the whole Pregnancy Experience!

Here's what Fertility Friend says about baby this week:

Your baby is now about 8.4 inches from crown to rump (21cm) and weighs about 1.2 pounds (530g). Your baby's face and body now look more like a full-term baby. She now looks close to how she will look at birth. The eyes, though they are still closed, are now close together on the front of the face and the ears are in their final position. Eyelashes are fairly well-developed and hair is growing on your baby's head. Your baby's movements are becoming more restricted now as she fills up the uterus more. Cartwheels and somersaults inside the amniotic sac are no longer possible, but she can still hold the umbilical cord and touch and feel around her. Though your baby is already living in tight quarters in the amniotic sac, she will soon have even less room to move around. Her vital organs are now quite mature. However, since the lungs are not yet fully formed, your baby would have breathing problems if born prematurely at this stage. Your baby is becoming increasingly conscious of the world outside and may feel startled when you are startled. Your baby may alternate between having very active and very calm periods. Your baby may have facial expressions such as frowning, squinting and pursing of the lips.
1 more week until we're viable!
