How far along are you: 28 Weeks
How big is the baby: TBy this week, your baby weighs two and a quarter pounds (like a Chinese cabbage) and measures 14.8 inches from the top of her head to her heels. She can blink her eyes, which now sport lashes. With her eyesight developing, she may be able to see the light that filters in through your womb. She’s also developing billions of neurons in her brain and adding more body fat in preparation for life in the outside world. (source)

Last Week–>Week 27: Air Energy: This week was intended to focus on breath meditation something I made time for every day this week. It also was a time to reflect on my thoughts and fears about giving birth and becoming a mother. What are the thoughts that have you up at night in regard to becoming a mother and giving birth? My fears include not making it to the birthing center (it’s 60 minutes away), having a giant baby and being in active labor for many hours. Currently one of my fears that isn’t about becoming a mother or giving birth is not passing my glucose test which is next week-eek!
This Week–> Sacred Pregnancy Week 28: Fire Energy
This Week’s focus: Are you confident that you know what you want for this pregnancy and birth? If you are not, take the time to get clear and journal about your confusion. When you are ready to really direct your will and intention, the universe will be ready to hear it!
