27 Weeks

This week, our baby weighs almost 2 pounds (like a head of cauliflower) and is about 15 inches long with his legs extended.  He's sleeping and waking at regular intervals, opening and closing his eyes, and perhaps even sucking his fingers.  (How cute!)  With more brain tissue developing, Lil Arroyo's baby's brain is very active now. While his lungs are still immature, they would be capable of functioning — with a lot of medical help — if he were to be born now.

Any tiny rhythmic movements I might be feeling could be a case of baby hiccups, which may be common from now on. (I was wondering what those were!) Each episode usually lasts only a few moments, and they don't bother him thankfully, they are just a little bit strange.
