This is the third trimester of your pregnancy, and the seventh month of a new life inside of you. It becomes more difficult to soar and flip: you have a serious load during this period. It is hard to breathe, sit, sleep, and move. But if you’re doing special fitness for pregnant women, it will be easier to control.
When you are 27 – 28 weeks pregnant, the baby is very active: looking at the belly, you can see his movements and some kind of “greetings” with elbows and heels. Pay attention to what you eat during this week, all kinds of allergens should be excluded.
Your baby is as big – As a CAULIFLOWER
LENGTH- 13.98 in – WEIGHT- 1.60 lb
You have already gained about 9 kg. This is a normal weight gain, you can gain another 3-5 kg by the end of pregnancy. To say more precisely – you have every right to this increase, but try to not exceed this number – the extra weight may create unnecessary problems for you and your baby.
Your uterus has risen almost to the level of the ribs, and it compresses the lungs and intestines. It provokes constipation and nausea but has no effect on your really good appetite. Unfortunately, this situation will hardly change up to birth. There is only one way out – to eat healthy food in small portions.
This period is considered to be important, and this applies to the positioning of the baby. Do not be nervous when your doctor says that your baby is head down at this stage of pregnancy: fetal position can be changed more than once. If the baby in the womb has taken the wrong position, you still have time to “influence” the situation. Perhaps, by reference to your doctor, you will have to do special exercises.
Your baby sleeps for 20 hours a day, he wakes up every hour.
It is known that if a baby is born at this period, he is able to survive. But it is impossible in the natural environment, he needs different conditions, resembling his natal “house”. But all organs and systems are already working.
Now your little baby is able to overcome some viral diseases: the development of a fetus assumes that the immune system of a baby is entering into an active phase of its work. In a sense, the baby itself can be protected from infections now. The immunity of your baby is already able to respond to some harmful substances – allergens. Therefore, a mother should not eat allergic products.
Your kid has grown up a little more, and, accordingly, he has learned new movements of his hands, feet, head. Many moms, who are 27 weeks pregnant, can see how the baby pushes and kicks even without the help of an ultrasound: the movements are very clear and sometimes even abrupt now. Your baby already responds to light and contrast sounds, he is learning to kick and roll from one side to the other.
