Preggo Friday

Baby Progress:

Your baby continues to grow and develop inside of you. Measuring approximately 16 inches long,he weighs about 4 lbs. 4 whole pounds, wow! And from this week, until 2weeks before birth,he will gain about a half pound every week.

As you've probably noticed,he is moving around quite a bit in there! It's not uncommon for his continuous movements, which may feel like somersaults, to be keeping you up at night. His arms, legs and body are also filling out as he continues to develop fat underneath his skin, making those kicks and prods feel even stronger than last week. You may even see an arm or a foot move slowly across your belly!

My Progress:

How much does baby weigh? 2 lbs. 11 oz as of last ultrasound
