Pregnancy calendar: 27 Weeks Pregnant – What to Expect

Congratulations, you’re now 27 weeks pregnant! Here’s what you can expect during this stage of pregnancy:

Baby development:

  • Your baby weighs around 2 pounds and is about 15 inches long.
  • The baby’s lungs are continuing to develop, and they can now distinguish between light and dark.
  • The baby’s brain is rapidly developing, and they may even be dreaming.

Changes in your body:

  • You may experience heartburn, as the growing uterus puts pressure on your stomach and pushes stomach acid upwards.
  • Your breasts may start producing colostrum, a nutrient-rich fluid that your baby will consume during the first few days of life.
  • You may have difficulty sleeping due to the growing baby and hormonal changes.

Prenatal care:

  • You’ll have regular prenatal appointments with your healthcare provider to monitor your and your baby’s health.
  • You may have a glucose screening test between weeks 24-28 to check for gestational diabetes.
  • You may have an iron deficiency anemia test to check your iron levels and see if you need supplementation.

It’s important to continue taking care of yourself during this time by eating a healthy, balanced diet, staying hydrated, and getting plenty of rest. If you have any concerns or questions, don’t hesitate to speak with your healthcare provider.
