Twenty Seven Weeks :)

I was Twenty Seven weeks on the 21 of September. Here is what went on that week:

At 27 weeks, baby is breathing (it’s amniotic fluid, not air, but it still counts) and even showing brain activity. You’ve got a lot on your brain, too, from wondering what labor and delivery is going to be like to trying to find the best pediatrician for baby. The annoying symptoms you’ve been having probably aren’t going away, but at least you’ve probably found some ways to deal with them -- and hey, maybe you’re used to them right now. As you say goodbye to the second trimester, you can look forward to some pretty embarrassing stuff (like having to pee all the time -- and maybe even when you don’t mean to at all) that’s all par for the late-pregnancy course. It’s time to head down the home stretch. Are you ready?

Your baby's the size of an eggplant!
At 13.6 to 14.8 inches and 1.5 to 2.5 pounds, she's not just getting bigger, she's getting smarter.

Your baby at 27 weeks

She's practicing inhaling and exhaling with her rapidly developing lungs.
It's official: Baby's showing brain activity! And her brain will keep on getting more complex.

I had a doctor's appointment the day before (Sept 20). We did the ultrasound to confirm the due date, take measurements  and make sure she is developing the way she should. Well, we had a scare. The Ultrasound tech thought that Addison's stomach was two bubbles not just one. So she had the doctor look at it and they sent me to a specialist that Friday. Everything turned out to be fine! What a relief! Addison is a little over 2.5 lbs, her heart rate is where it is supposed to be and she is developing nicely!  :)
