Week 27 of Your Pregnancy


Days to go



Pregnancy Symptoms

Few of the symptoms which you may notice at 27 weeks are:


During pregnancy, blood flow to the mucous membranes increases. The nose is full of mucous membranes. The extra blood flow causes the nasal passages to swell, which leads to extra watery discharge and congestion. Both the additional discharge and congestion can lead to increased sneezing

Glowing Skin

Through pregnancy, increase in various hormone levels can cause increased blood flow to the skin beneath your face resulting in pregnancy glow. In addition, the oil glands under the skin work more actively which adds to the glow factor.

Thicker Hair

By this pregnancy stage, your oestrogen and androgen hormone levels are high enough to make your hair lustrous and beautiful. Not only that, your hair grows quite quickly. This is the time to fall in love with your tresses and enjoy the phase.

Pelvic Pain

Your little bean is growing, your uterus is streching and expanding to accomodate your growing fetus. The hormones also cause the loosening of some of the ligaments and ligaments in the pelvic area in preparation for delivery. All these factors together result in pelvic pain during this stage of your pregnancy.

Baby's Development

How big is your baby?

Baby’s Length: 14.5 inches(36.5cms)
Baby’s Weight: 0.91 kgs

Your baby is now the size of a Broccoli. As the second trimester comes to an end this week, your baby is now able to kick, stretch, and grab the cord inside your womb. Following are the development of your baby this week.

Baby is able to hear your voice inside the womb but it maybe muffled as the ears are covered with vernix caseosa-the waxy protective layer over the skin. But, that should not stop you from continuing your sweet little banter with the baby.

Baby has assumed a slightly curled up position in your womb now. Its known as the fetal position. The baby may continue to change directions until the end of your pregnancy.

Baby’s taste buds are highly developed now. In fact the baby’s tongue has more taste buds now, than it will have at any other point in their life once they are born. Whatever you eat, they can taste through the amniotic fluid. Sometimes all this tasting can also result in hiccups for the baby. Hiccups can be more if you eat anything spicy! But don’t worry as it does not have any adverse effect on the baby.

Baby is now able to open and close eyes. Exciting isn’t it? Flash a torch on your belly and you might be able to see your baby move. That’s a reaction to the light flashed.
