Day 26 -Their Age

Claire was born at 17 weeks gestation.

Around this time your baby's ears pop from his head and Baby-to-be can now sense sounds. 
After all, he has plenty to listen to in utero! He's accustomed to the strong beating of your heart, blood rushing through your veins, and your stomach grumbling. 
He can also discern sounds outside the uterus, like your voice and music. 
Although, according to the Mayo Clinic, whether he can distinguish the sound of your voice
versus other sounds is not yet clear.

On average, most moms are feeling fetal movement by week 17. 
Kick, little one, kick!

This week your little one weighs in at around 5 ounces 
and stretches to just over 5 inches (crown to rump). 
He is about the size of a red onion.


Had she been born on her due date, today she would be:
2 years, 7 months and 16 days old...

Full on Terrible Twos heading towards the Trying Threes.
I would welcome these stages with open arms.
If only...


  1. Sweet little Claire, I'm so glad that you got to hear your mama's voice.

    I wish she had heard your voice, seen your smile, been folded up in your arms. For the last 2 years, 7 months and 16 days. I'm so sorry that she hasn't been.

    If only . . .

    1. Thank you Catherine. I know you have your 'If only' too and I so wish Georgina could be here with you and with Jessica too.
