Your Pregnancy: Week 27
Baby's now the size of a rutabaga!
Baby's lungs are going through some major developments these days, which (combined with the opening of previously plugged nostrils) means he's now able to practice inhaling and exhaling. The lack of air in your womb means every "breath" is filled with amniotic fluid, but hey — it's progress.
[tip] When traveling — be it by plane, train, or automobile — take a quick stretch and stroll every hour or two to keep the blood flowing through you and baby.
