Sweet Baby 27 Weeks

Posted by Courtney Lopez on


Sweet Baby is the size of a head of cauliflower!


27 weeks pregnant
This week we did the Glucose Test.. Thankfully I passed!!  Phew!  This week I started getting tired again and I’ve been getting lots of heartburn and can now feel baby squirming instead of just little kicks.  I can’t believe we’re over half way and meet her in just 3 short months!

About our baby:    This week, your baby weighs almost 2 pounds (like a head of cauliflower) and is about 14 1/2 inches long with her legs extended. She’s sleeping and waking at regular intervals, opening and closing her eyes, and perhaps even sucking her fingers. With more brain tissue developing, your baby’s brain is very active now. While her lungs are still immature, they would be capable of functioning — with a lot of medical help — if she were to be born now. Chalk up any tiny rhythmic movements you may be feeling to a case of baby hiccups, which may be common from now on. Each episode usually lasts only a few moments, and they don’t bother her, so just relax and enjoy the tickle. (summary and weekly image from babycenter)
