YOUR BABY THIS WEEK...Week 25
Wow! Your baby is almost 9 inches (23 cm) long—almost half his birth length! While his weight is still low at about 1.5 pounds (0.68 kilograms), he could survive if he decided to make an “entrance” into the world now! Your Baby: Among the most prominent changes this week take place in the skin, which gradually becomes thicker and less transparent. It’s still wrinkled, as if there is more than he needs, but your baby will literally “grow” into his skin as time passes. Your baby’s heartbeat may be strong enough now that other people can hear it when pressing their ear to your belly!
Personal note: Bean won't be measured any time soon, but last time about a month ago he measured at 10 inches and weighed 16 ounces, so we're doing very well in the development department. Our checkup today revealed a perfect heartbeat of 142/minute (Bean not me) and a nice and high uterus. No sugar in my urine and no complaints from me. We are blessed with good health and we are very grateful for it!
