Pregnancy Facts - Week 27

The third trimester is here!


What's happening in week 27 of pregnancy

In the third trimester, expect to be on the receiving end of invasive personal questions and uninvited hands on your tummy. There are people out there that think it's okay to rub you like you're the incarnation of Buddha.

Everything from here on out becomes a chore and difficult to do now that you're bigger and less nimble. If you work an office job, now's the time to order a few extra boxes of pens, because when one falls - that sucker's gone forever as far as you're concerned. No way can you crawl underneath your desk to get it. Drop your car keys in the footwell of your car — looks like you're just going to have to buy a new car.


Your baby's development in week 27 of pregnancy

You may think that time of day has no bearing on life or activities for your baby in the womb. In actuality, your baby goes through cycles of awake and sleep. At week 27 of pregnancy, your baby sleeps more than 95% of the day. Growing happens only when the body rests, so it's not surprise that sleep is the predominate activity for your baby.

While asleep or awake, at times you may feel rhythmic jerks inside you. Likely it's your baby hiccupping, which is perfectly normal. The hiccups are because of contractions in your baby's diaphragm and typically occur when your baby is breathing in amniotic fluid.
