My Pregnancy Week 27

Pregnancy Week 27

Your baby continues to grow and develop inside of you. Measuring about 14.5 inches long, he weighs just about 2 pounds. This week, his brain is developing quickly. His eyelids, which have remained closed up until this point, begin to open and now his retinas can begin to form. The retina contains specialized photoreceptor cells that respond to light, called rods and cones. Cones in particular help us perceive color.

Her skin is still wrinkly; but by 27 weeks, she basically looks how she will look when you give birth to her – in just a few months!

    im 27wks this week with my 1st & still in disbelief that im actually going to have a child, im excited and nervous, and still cant believe its all real. My biggest worry is about being in labor and delivery. Im thinking about taking a parenting class does anyone have any words of wisdom or personal insight into these parenting classes.

    I am so excited and yet so nervous being 27 weeks has given me the realization that my son will be here before I know it. I am excited to meet him yet nervous that soon my womb won’t be his protection.

    With each little kick and punch, I get more excited about meeting my sweet little baby. I have decided I don’t want to know the sex until the day I deliver, which is driving my MIL crazy, but my mom didn’t know until I popped out.

    27 weeks and 4 days, I am just excited about meeting my little man… This time has gone by pretty fast. I have been taken off work because of my blood pressure, back pain and headaches.. So I have plenty of time to get ready for his arrival.

  15. Twenty seven weeks!!!! WOW! Working has gotten so much harder and everytime I don’t feel up to going, I suck it up and remember it is for my little Victoria Anne. I can’t wait to bundle her up and hold her and watch her grow! I can’t wait to teach her about this world, and see her point of views!! I just want to hold my first baby in my arms and watch my fiance do the same!!!
