27 weeks pregnant

At 27 weeks pregnant, you’re in the last week of your second trimester. That means you’re two thirds of the way finished!

Your third trimester will zoom by and before you know it, you’ll be welcoming your little one into the world.

In the meantime, though, you’re still dealing with physical changes, and you’re probably pretty anxious to know what your baby is up to during week 27 pregnancy. Take a look at this quick guide to find out everything you need to know about pregnancy week 27.

27 weeks pregnant: Baby’s got a growth spurt! 

Your little guy isn’t nearly as little as he was last week. During pregnancy week 27, he’ll grow almost an entire inch! He should now be between 14 and 15 inches, and weigh over 2 pounds. This rate of growth is unique and only happens a few times in life—the next time you’ll see it is when he’s reaching puberty. Here’s what else he’s up to right now:

  • He could have a serious case of the hiccups, as his lungs and respiratory system continue developing
  • He can associate sounds with memories, including mummy and daddy’s voices
  • He can taste the meals that you eat (but usually it takes about 2 hours to reach him)
  • His sleep and wake cycles are following a regular pattern
  • He’s exploring his visual sense, opening and closing his eyes

27 weeks pregnant: Who hiccupped? 

When your baby hiccups at 27 weeks pregnant, you can feel it too! He might be doing it a lot right now, but try not to let it bother you. Also, there’s no need to worry about him suffering; it’s a completely normal part of pregnancy and it’s just another new and exciting sensation for him to be curious about.

In addition to all the funny movements coming from your little one, you’re most likely going to have some other side effects at 27 weeks pregnant.

  • Your uterus is more or less the size of a basketball
  • If you haven’t had swelling of hands and feet previously, you probably will now
  • Your belly button has probably popped out by now
  • You may continue feeling dizzy or faint
  • Bleeding gums may still be a problem
  • Continued nasal congestion could be another annoyance
  • You may also still have leg cramping, also accompanied by restless leg syndrome at night
  • Your belly may be itchy from all the quick growth
  • And your back and abdomen are probably still quite achy

27 weeks pregnant: Don’t miss your glucose test! 

You won’t have any scheduled antenatal doctor’s visits during pregnancy week 27. However, your doctor may have schedule a glucose test for this time. As explained in the 24 weeks pregnant article, the glucose test will measure how well your body is processing sugar while you are pregnant in order to determine the possibility of gestational diabetes. It can be taken anytime between pregnancy week 24 and pregnancy week 28. 

If your blood sugar levels test too high, you will be asked to come in for a more thorough, 3 hour test another day. Don’t worry if this happens, though. Maybe women get “false alarms” during the first test, and then test negative during the 3 hour test.

Also, if you do have gestational diabetes, it shouldn’t cause any significant problems if it is properly treated. And it doesn’t mean that you’ll have to deal with diabetes for the rest of your life—it goes away after you give birth. 

By the time you are 27 weeks pregnant, you’re reaching the end of your second trimester! Your little one will be here before you know it, and he’ll need lots of “equipment.” If you haven’t already started preparing your home for your baby’s arrival, now might be the time to begin! Many new parents quickly realize that they underestimated the number of nappies they will need—why not start stocking up now? Making it a habit to buy a pack every time you do the grocery might save your bank account from hurting too much later on!

You’ve still got a lot to plan, some doctor’s appointments to make, and some unpleasant symptoms to deal with before your little one arrives. But don’t worry, at 27 weeks pregnant, you’ve made it most of the way through! The rest of your time will probably be over in a flash, so hang in there!

    I'm a 27 weeks pregnant and shamelessly enjoying my current state! Don't even experience any unpleasant symptoms.

    I am 27 weeks pregnant and all my friends tell me that when they were 27 weeks pregnant the movements of their babies were strong, they felt it a lot of times during the day, practically every 10 minutes. But I don’t feel the same – I feel the movements of my baby, but not so much and often as they say. I’ve read some information about 27th week of pregnancy here but I still need an advice – is it normal to feel not so many movements of my baby as another women feel?
