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!

    I welcomed in 27 weeks in observation because my little man decided he wanted to practice delivery. Has anyone else had uterine irritability with their babies?

    We are in the same boat. I’m 27 weeks pregnant also, my hips have been killing me too. I was always a little sleeper before the pregnancy it is worse now. I have the same stomach pain when I turned to my other side. I’m caring a little kicker, and he kicks days and nights. No sleep for me…lol. don’t worry Kyleen you’re not the only one. Hope it gets better for you.

    Im 27 weeks and can hardly sleep at night. I start out on my left side and when my hips really starts to hurt from the pressure to turn to my right side. Here is the problem, when I go to turn I have really bad pains across my stomach. No matter how slow or fast I try to move it hurts. Anyone else have any problems like this? Its vice versa as well, well to go to turn back to my left side the same thing happens.

      I have the same problem and I have found that if I sleep sitting up with a pillow under my legs and two behind my back for a little while the pain subsides and I can lay back down. No matter what direction, changing position hurts. If he is awake and notices that I am struggling to get comfortable my husband will help me roll over. What a guy!

    • Same thing happens to me. I also tried moving slower/faster and it still hurts. I’m not sure what to make of it.

  8. There is nothing to be worried about everyone feels this way but I’ve thing I have learn is that moment that they give you your child for the first time you will definitely know what to do it will come so natural to you. Only thing I can tell you is hang in there try everything for your child and the rest will be just fine. Good luck mommy and congratulation.

    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.

  14. Avatar of Elisha Elisha says:

    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.

      If you’re worried about what you’re feeling, you should call your doctor. It’s possible to feel baby moving low during the end of your pregnancy, but again – if you’re nervous, call the doctor.

        My baby boy is still breach and sits on my bladder i feel him move all the time. I have had two ultra sounds and everything is fine he just hasn’t turned yet. I am not worried because he is so active that some times i feel he does flip and i feel him kick by my belly button. Then he gets ready to relax and he is right back on my bladder. So i wouldn’t be too concerned. This is my third son. Tho my youngest is 22 yrs old lol. But idf your that worried i would call your dr and discuss your concerns with him/her. Maybe request a additional ultra sound to make sure everything is all right.

    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.

  25. 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!!!
