27 Weeks!


27wk summary 27wk baby

First of all… yes, I know I haven’t updated in 2 weeks! :( Sorry, life just got pretty busy and I didn’t have time. And with that…

Yay! 27 weeks!! Baby is 14.5 inches long and weighs 2 pounds!! Oh my goodness, Baby is getting so big! Baby’s size this week can be compared to cauliflower. Awww.. my cute little cauliflower!

Now lets read in more detail what BabyBump has to say about this week.

Baby – This week your baby looks like a thinner, redder, more wrinkled version of what he will look like at birth, but in the next few weeks more fat will fill out his appearance. Your baby’s immune system is continuing to mature as are your baby’s lungs which are still practicing breathing amniotic fluid

Body – Just when you were getting used to your second trimester, you may find new uncomfortable symptoms beginning during your third trimester. You may notice more leg craps due to the pressure of your uterus on your veins and nerves running from your torso to your legs. Remember to stretch and move your legs to ease or prevent cramping.

Activities this week – Now is a great time to sign up for a breastfeeding class. If you are a first-time mom and planning to breastfeed your baby, it’s a good idea to take a breastfeeding class or sign up with a lactation consultant. Ask your doctor or midwife for a recommendation or call Le Leche League who can help you locate breastfeeding resources in your area.

That’s so exciting that Baby is now proportionally correct in his/her development! Now s/he just needs to put on a little fat before coming out :)

Third trimester is almost here! Well, according to some, it already is. And according to my calculations, I am now 67.5% through the pregnancy. So, technically, the third trimester should be the last third of my pregnancy, i.e., after I’ve passed the 66.7% mark. So based on these facts, I totally say that I’m in the third trimester! :) It definitely feels like I am. Being comfortable is becoming more and more rare. Putting on my socks is a struggle, and my back is almost in constant pain. But it’s ok, all the suffering is to bring my precious little baby into the world, so it’s all worth it!

Breastfeeding classes! We have decided to take this class at Sweet Beginnings in Littleton, CO but we won’t start until after school is over… in two weeks!

Being at week 27 also means that BabyBump has a new belly picture for the next 4 weeks. Looks like Baby is starting to get a little cramped in there!
