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!

  3. I just turned 27 weeks yesterday and I have recently bought a recliner. It helps me get better sleep- sometimes. I’m just ready to have my little girl 🙂

    To be honest, I was never exptibg to be pregnant again. Although this is my 4 th child. :). I’m nervous and a bit frighten for the labor time! Eeeeks! Yes, even though all my 3 previous afte all natural and I had them less than 20 mins, its the fact of having the baby that frightens me. My husband is superb excited while I’m exhausted, but also excited since its been a while. Congrats to all the mamas this year!!!

    Im very excited for the boy im having, just you would never expect complications that would affect the baby. im 27 wks and the baby has 2 loops of my cord around his neck. trying to take it easy n just praying to god everything gets better day by day. the doctors just have me monitored day by day.

    Sending you best wishes for a lengthy pregnancy for those babies! There aren’t really twin week-by-week calendars, since the basic development is the same, just slightly faster and times two!

    I am on bedrest since I was 19 weeks and I have a three year old.
    I am expecting twins. I ahve had 1 helicopter trip for pre term labor and lucky they were able to stop it. I pray everyday for the extra day god has given me. I am 27 weeks and 2 days. I hope I get out of the 20’s and into the 30’s. I wished websites gave twin progress week by week.

    I can’t wait until August!!!! Excited to see how my first little girl will take to the second :):):)

  15. Can’t wait to hold my lil girl i wish she was here already!!!

  16. Are you sure he doesn’t weigh more than 2lbs? Lol… Boy, I had a rough night dealing with all the weight and laying on my side made it worse. That’s cool how the skin works and him being able to see light. 🙂

    I am counting down the weeks I can’t wait!!!!

  18. I feel great! I’ve been hovering at the same weight, for a few weeks. I do yoga, and walk regularly, to try to keep the weight and cramps in check. I remember all too well those horrible leg cramps at night. I eat a bowl of cereal, or Tums before bed, to try to not get them. (Leg cramps have something to do with Calcium and phosphorus imbalances). Running around with a two year old also helps!
