28 weeks pregnant – the changes in you
Up until now you may have had a discreet bump. However from now on your bump will be getting bigger, fast. The size of the bump varies greatly. One woman may carry “in the front” whilst the other may carry the baby high up. No two bumps are the same and do not worry about the size of your bump. So long as the midwife is satisfied everything is going well, then the baby will be growing just as he should.
28 weeks pregnant – how is your baby growing?
Your baby is now approximately 37 centimetres long and weighs about 1000 grams. Just the weight of a pack of sugar. From now on your baby will gain on average 200 grams per week. In week 28 it is officially viable for your baby to survive outside of the uterus. The eyes may also begin to open at this time. The layer of downy hair will slowly make way for a greasy layer to lubricate and protect the baby’s skin.
