Topic Week 28: Feeling Heavy

Fetal development in pregnancy week 28:

You know how you’ve been feeling a bit like a barn with legs? Well,
that feeling won’t subside before… well, you know, when you finally
give birth. For the time being, you’ve got yourself a baby in the
business of collecting fat and lots of it! In spite of the dubious joys
of being a human-barn, this baby fat business is very serious and
you’ve got to put up with it because it’s going to keep your little
porker warm and healthy after birth. Other good stuff from inside:
their eyes are doing lots of blinking this week because they’re now
able to respond to light and dark. Also, their industrious little bone
marrow is now a major construction site for developing red blood cells,
while their super-cute adrenal glands are actually producing androgen
and estrogen—which will stimulate your hormones to begin milk
production. Can you say, “Moo?”

And how's mom doing?

If you’re not already fully entrenched,
it’s just about time to head into the Name Game field. If you haven’t
yet landed on “the perfect name”, there are only about a trillion books
(check them out at Amazon.com) and websites with head-spinning lists of
name possibilities. You can always opt to invent You
can always opt to invent a name as well (like say, “Thygor”).
Obviously, naming isn’t always the most straightforward or easy process
and not every couple has a name for their child even after birth
a name as well (like say, “Thygor”). Obviously, naming isn’t always the
most straightforward or easy process and not every couple has a name
for their child even after birth. Really, just take your time and try
to consider any possible mean nicknames they might be inflicted with
once they hit adolescence (i.e. What happens when you name your kid
“Willy"?).As if we have to tell you: their little “cute” kicks
are getting stronger these days, but just pay attention. If you notice
a significant drop in the number of kicks experienced per hour it would
be a good idea to tell your physician or mid-wife. But before you start
getting anxious, keep in mind that during the final weeks of pregnancy
your in-house-football player will be kicking significantly less as
they will lack the space to move about as vigorously.
