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

Pregnancy is a sensitive time for us and small changes can sometimes create panic. Increased vaginal discharge maybe scary but it is, in fact, normal in most cases. Creamy white watery discharge happens due to hormonal changes. It is also your body’s way of preventing vaginal infections and keeping your baby safe. But remember, if you find a change in color, quickly consult your doctor to be on the safe side.
The human body is a wonderful creation. Did you know the main reason behind constipation during pregnancy? Your digestive system moves slowly to ensure maximum absorption of nutrients from your food so that your baby can have the best nutrition possible. This slow movement, of course, causes you inconvenience, and the best way to combat it is by staying hydrated and eating fiber-rich foods.
Experiencing acidity along with constipation? Don’t be surprised. When your digestive system is working slowly, heartburn is a common consequence. Most to-be-mothers go through both these symptoms. Staying hydrated and having fiber-rich foods will help combat acidity too. Along with this, you can avoid foods that trigger heartburn such as coffee and tea, spices, and deep-fried foods. Your aim should be to eat foods that are nutrient-rich and at the same time easy to digest.
