27 Week Pregnancy Update - Baby #2


This is my 27 week pregnancy update with baby number two! I talk about my bump, heartburn and baby's movements.

DUE DATE
31st October 2017

BABY DEVELOPMENT
Baby girl is beginning to enter a very active phase in her cramped quarters. The amniotic fluid has decreased, which means you'll feel every movement of your baby much more than ever before. Your baby will be practicing the sucking reflex in order to prepare for feeding. Baby's immune system, liver and lungs are still continuing to develop and preparing to function on their own.

GENDER
It's a GIRL!

MOOD
I've been feeling well this week and I'm not as tired. Although I haven't been at work this week, it's meant I've have had plenty of time to rest (as much as I can anyway, with a four year old around!).

SYMPTOMS
I'm not sure if I mentioned in my previous update, but the sickness seems to have stopped completely (for now, anyway). Apart from the odd heartburn, everything is great. My bump is growing and I can no longer see my feet, although I did notice that a few weeks ago!

SLEEP
I have been sleeping really well. Although I still find myself waking in the night or early morning for a wee and/or with the occasional heartburn.

MOVEMENT
I'm feeling baby's movements every day now, although there is no pattern to them yet. I usually feel around 8 movements a day, although she's usually more active in the evenings and at night time.

FOOD CRAVINGS OR AVERSIONS
There hasn't been any this week!

HIGHLIGHT OF THIS WEEK
I've made a start on my hospital bag and have started gathering things together, which is exciting! I will be sharing what I've packed for both me and baby girl a little closer to the time.

LOOKING FORWARD TO
This is my last week being in the second trimester!
