Stages of Pregnancy Week by Week

What My Baby Looks Like in Week 28

As you can see in the photo, your developing baby is kicking more and more in week 28, and you're probably feeling his forceful movements, too.

This week, your developing baby is about 2½ pounds. It may put on another 4 pounds before it is born. Some studies indicate that your developing baby may now be able to distinguish your voice from that of your partner's. The developing baby's kicks and movements become more noticeable at this stage. Kicks may now feel blunt and more forceful.
