27 weeks today!!!

January 25, 2009

We’re still in eggplant-land for another two weeks, but now the little ones should be about 2 pounds and 14.5 inches long each.  I won’t know much about how big they are for another week and a half, as that’s when our next growth scan is (but I cannot WAIT to see how they’ve grown).  All of the books say they should be sleeping and waking at regular intervals now, and if it’s any indication of how they will be in the outside world, we are in big, big trouble.  They were up kicking me ALL NIGHT last night, and that, along with the horrendous acid reflux, was about enough to make me go crazy!

Their little eyes should be opening and closing by now, and their brain is continuing to be very active because of all of the additional brain tissue that is developing.  This is the last week in the second trimester, and the third trimester just cannot come soon enough, as it’s our first “mini goal” or milestone.  Making it to the third trimester back in the beginning seemed like an impossibility, and now it’s so close…
