27 Weeks Pregnant
How your baby's growing:
This week, your baby weighs almost 2 pounds (like a head of cauliflower) and is about 14 1/2 inches long with her legs extended. She's sleeping and waking at regular intervals, opening and closing her eyes, and perhaps even sucking her fingers. With more brain tissue developing, your baby's brain is very active now. While her lungs are still immature, they would be capable of functioning — with a lot of medical help — if she were to be born now. Chalk up any tiny rhythmic movements you may be feeling to a case of baby hiccups, which may be common from now on. Each episode usually lasts only a few moments, and they don't bother her, so just relax and enjoy the tickle.
I have a doctor's appointment tomorrow for a regular check-up as well as my glucose test! I think it should be a breeze so I am going into it with a positive attitude. I will update everyone after the appointment. I have updated 'baby bump' pictures to post tonight as well so be on the look out for those!
