Your Pregnancy, Week 28

You’re entering the home stretch! As you start your third trimester, your baby continues to develop. Your baby is growing in weight and size as his or her body systems finish maturing.

Your baby still has little body fat, but that will soon change. Weighing in at about 2 pounds now, your little one will weigh nearly 3 pounds by the time your reach 30 weeks.

As your uterus grows and expands, you may also notice some changes in how you’re feeling. For instance, it may be hard to take deep breaths or get comfortable enough to sleep well at night.
