28 Weeks...

How far along? 28 weeks
How big are the babies? Eggplants!
Best moment this week:Finishing the floors in the babies' room!
Symptoms: I'm very heavy!
Movement:Very frequent
Food cravings: Ben & Jerry's Ice cream
Genders: A Boy and Girl!!!
Milestones: Passed my Glucose test!

Development: Babies' lungs are mature enough that, if born right now, they have a pretty good chance of surviving (with help from medical technology). Their skin is still pretty wrinkly (one byproduct of living in amniotic fluid) but will smoothen as fat continues to deposit.

Headlines from the week:

Avatar is the number one movie this week

NBC pulls plug on Leno's nightly prime-time show

Weather today:
Partly Sunny, 32 Degrees

Finished the babies' room!?!? We want pictures!

Gretchen said...

Haha, just the floors and paint so far. We still have a few things to move out of there and then move the furniture in. I will try to put some pictures up though!
