Baby at 28 Weeks Pregnant
Your baby weighs about 2 pounds, 3 ounces this week, which is the equivalent of a liter of water. A liter of water is the equivalent of half a 2-liter of Mountain Dew.
There’s hair growing on your baby’s head, his eyelashes are growing, and his eyes can open. In addition, he can suck, kick, grab, blink and hiccup.
What new thing have you learned lately?

Mom at 28 Weeks Pregnant
Has she been more forgetful than usual lately? She’s probably suffering from a very real thing more commonly known as “pregnancy brain,” a.k.a. “momnesia”.This isn’t because pregnancy affects your brain. It doesn’t. It’s because she’s sleep-deprived, busy and a little stressed.
She doesn’t want to hear about your aches and pains. Hers easily supercede yours. Now’s the time to give her ALL the attention.
If you’ve got questions or emotions to bring up on the subject of pregnancy and/or babies with your partner, just ask. She’s probably thinking about all the same things.
Pregnancy Tips for Dad at 28 Weeks
It’s probably a good idea to enter all the important “go time” numbers into your phone (doctor, hospital, her parents, etc.)
Make plans for how long you’ll take off for work (at least 2 weeks if you can). Make sure to familiarize your workplace’s paternity policy and give them a heads up that you’ll soon be disappearing to Babyville for a while.
Keep playing defensive enforcer anytime random people try to touch her belly. It’s fine to thank them for their interest while still being firm on saying no.
