hi, kali ini menginjak minggu genap 7 bln kehamilan menurut kalender dokter, tp bdsk perkmbgan baby tercinta di perut ini udh genap 7 bln sjak mggu lalu (dia biasanya emg lebih cpt sminggu ^__^ )
kmarin hari minggu diadain syukuran nujuh bulan (mnurut adat di Jawa), anyway adat di keluarga gw ga ada acara spt ini (sulawesi), tp mengikuti adat suami, jadi kmarin acara ni diadain di rmh mertua ku.. acaranya dibarengin sama syukuran ibu mertua yg baru balik dari tanah suci bulan ini 🙂 jadi acaranya pengajian, abis itu sbnrnya ada siraman, tp karena sblomnya ga dikasi tau, gw protes en akhirnya ga jadi dilangsungkan acara itu..
oiya mulai hari ini gw mulai menghitung gerakan tendangan si baby, spt rekomendasi yg gw baca2 di buku en internet, intinya penghitungan ini adalah menghitung gerakan baby hingga 10 kali gerakan baby, en itu dalam waktu berapa lama, misalnya gw tiap hari menghitung gerakan baby tiap jm 10.30 am, nah 10 gerakan itu selesai dalam berapa menit, dicatat, tp gw prin chart dimana gw cm memberi tanda X pada kolom 10 menit, 20 menit, 30 menit, dst hingga 2,5 jam. Fungsinya buat apa? fungsinya untuk mengecek perkembgn baby tiap harinya, klo terjadi penurunan lama waktu gerakan yg ekstrim bisa berarti itu tanda bahaya hingga musti dicek segera ke dokter/rs. kira2 spt itu 🙂
You are currently in Week 28 (27 weeks and 4 days)

Stages of Labor
What changes are occurring with your body?
Each and every week your uterus continues to grow. The top of your uterus can now be felt significantly above your belly button, about 3 ½ inches or more. Most likely your weight gain is between 17 and 24 pounds. Discuss weight concerns with your healthcare provider at your next appointment.
Since you have entered the third trimester, you may notice that the symptoms of pregnancy are changing once again. Many women will begin experiencing leg cramps, constipation, insomnia, and hemorrhoids.
How big is your baby?
Your baby is about 14 ¼ inches long and weighs in at 2 ½ pounds. This still seems very small, but remember that during the last several weeks of pregnancy your baby will gain a significant amount of weight.*
What is happening with your baby?
Your baby’s brain is really beginning to develop into a more complex organ. Up until this point, your baby’s brain has been relatively smooth, but beginning this week his/her brain will develop grooves and indentions along its surface. The amount of brain tissue also begins to increase during the 28th week.
The development of hair also continues. Eyebrows and eyelashes are visible, while the hair on your baby’s head grows even longer. Your baby is also starting to look a little rounder as the fat storage under the skin continues to develop. This is an important part of development that will continue through the remainder of your pregnancy.*
What should you plan for this week?
At your next prenatal appointment you should be prepared for the following:
- Administration of Rhogam if you have the Rh Factor: If the Rh antibody was not found in your blood then you will be given Rhogam at 28 weeks and possibly after delivery.
- Discussion of the fetal movement chart
- Instructions on how to calculate kick counts.
- Childbirth class options
- Breast feeding vs. Bottle feeding discussion.
Most likely you will begin visiting your health care provider every 2 weeks until you reach 36 weeks. After 36, weeks your appointments will be scheduled on a weekly basis.
Tips for making your pregnancy better:
You may be feeling that the delivery of your baby is still weeks away, but you do need to begin making plans for the trip to the hospital. This can be especially helpful if your little one decides to arrive early. Make sure you have all of your partner’s phone numbers with you at all times so that you can reach him if you were to go into labor.
What will you do if he is unavailable? It is always good to have a plan B. You will also want to map out the various routes to your birthing location. Some men find this part of planning exciting as they get to be creative and find the shortest and quickest route possible.
Tips for mom’s partner:
Many couples decide to invest in pagers and cell phones as the delivery of their child approaches. Talk with your partner about the different options that are available. Be involved in making these decisions and plans. Discuss your fears of her not being able to reach you and ways that this can be avoided. Maybe there needs to be a specific text message or page that signals that she is going into labor. Talk with other parents who have dealt with these issues so that you can see what worked for them.
