Well I am 27 weeks today. That brings about a different set of fears and anxiety.
And it's ironic because it's also pregnancy loss awareness month.
27 weeks is when my water broke with my first son. So now that I'm 27 weeks with my second son. It gets me a little on edge. Basically for the next 90 days I will be holding my breath, on pins and needles just waiting for this little man to get here. Hoping for a healthy child and a safe delivery.
While my water did break early with my first son I had enough fluid to not deliver. I was stuck in the hospital on strict bed rest until it was time to deliver him. Which is very similar to my knee situation now. I'm immobile yet again. It's making for a very emotional third trimester.
Baby almost weighs 2 pounds and is roughly 14 1/2 inches long. About the size of a head of cauliflower. He's asleep and awake at regular intervals and opening and closing those little eyes. His brain tissue is developing and is very active now.
He's still really active most of the time. He's really strong so his kicks are pretty intense. Super intense for a "2 pound baby". Overall he's still healthy and growing just like he should.
