Pregnancy Home > 28 Weeks Pregnant

When you are about 28 weeks pregnant, you will have another checkup with your doctor. At about week 28 of your pregnancy, your baby is now sleeping and waking at normal intervals. When you're 28 weeks pregnant, you may start to feel clumsy and experience symptoms such as varicose veins, hemorrhoids, and difficulty sleeping.

28 Weeks Pregnant: An Overview

You're now 28 weeks pregnant -- only 13 more weeks to go. The countdown has begun.
 
By now, you are probably aware of just about every bathroom in your town. As your baby grows, you will continue to have the need to pee at what seems like every other minute. Just think -- when it comes time for potty training, you will be familiar with all the public bathrooms in your area!
 
Once you are 28 weeks pregnant, you will probably see your healthcare provider every two weeks. At each visit, you will go through the same routine tests and procedures so that your healthcare provider can monitor and track your pregnancy.
 
During week 28 of pregnancy, your baby now weighs about 2 to 3 pounds and measures about 10 inches from crown to rump, or a total length of 15 inches from head to toe. During this week, your baby will grow another one-half inch in size.
