Have you ever wondered what happens to you and baby in Week 27 of pregnancy?

To read Week 26, please click here.

Here is a detailed list of week 27 pregnancy facts:

  • The fetus’s eyes are open and it will be able to see light through the skin of your abdomen.
  • It will have started to practice sucking and may be able to suck his thumb or fist.
  • Your baby now is roughly 36 centimeters long and weighs 800 grams.
  • You will be getting noticeably larger and will have put on weight around your chest as well as your breasts.
  • Make sure you are wearing the correct size maternity bra.
  • Avoid lying on your back too much as you may feel faint as the enlarged uterus presses directly against blood vessels.
  • It is probably time to think about the type of birth you would like to have.

  • I am 27 weeks right now and loved reading what is happening in there at the moment! My little one is certainly kicking and punching alot! And I have noticed my normal tops are getting a little tighter on the back – obviously due to the increase in chest size as mentioned in this article!
