Week 27 of fetal development

The cholesterol level in your blood rises, which is a vital building block for various pregnancy hormones like progesterone. This hormone is important in maintaining uterine relaxation to avoid premature contraction.

Your baby

Your baby weighs about 1000 gm, but is still thin and wrinkled due to lack of fat under the skin.

Dos and Don’ts

  • Prepare your baby’s wardrobe. Buy nappies, bibs, soft cotton vests, cotton frocks or shirts, jump suits, soft towels, bed sheets, blanket, booties, soft woollens. Wash everything before using.
  • Prepare your baby’s room. Buy safe furniture and place it carefully. Look for a waist-height changing table, so that you won’t need to bend again and again to change the baby’s clothes. Keep baby care products at an arm’s length. Make sure that your baby’s room is adequately heated, well-ventilated and quiet.
