Baby is 27 Weeks – The Size of Romaine Lettuce

Today our baby in utero is 27 weeks old. S/he is about 2 pounds and 14 1/2 inches long, the size of one Romaine Lettuce. For comparison I put the lettuce us to a standard writing portfolio. Some sources say this is the start of the third trimester, while others say it begins next week.

Usually I post Baby Center’s food of the week, however, theirs was cauliflower which I’d used two weeks ago, from The Bump site,when I could not find a rutabaga. So I used The Bump’s food this week as well.

Many babies are head down a lot of the time at this point. At my last visit with Dr. G at 26 weeks and 4 weeks, a scan showed our baby was as well.

This week baby has major brain wave development.

S/he has somewhat of a set wake and sleep interval cycle, though this may change dramatically after his or her birth. There’s 90’days to go after today to reach 40 weeks along.

44 year old mother to be, delightedly expecting our first baby with my husband, Matt,. We live with our mischievous cat, Inky. Estimated Due Date - October 27, 2017, though doctor plans to do a C-Section earlier. I love sports (Go Giants! Go Sharks!), photography, the beach, WWE, reading and now looking at our ultrasound pics. Our baby is upside down in our 8 week one I'm using as an icon, almost like s/he is mooning us, ;).
