My Baby - Week by Week Pregnancy

Week 27 - Facial Features are Almost Fully Developed

Your baby weighs approximately 2 pounds and measures nearly 14.5 inches from head to heel. His or her facial features are almost fully developed and synchronizing enough that he or she may make faces that are visible on an ultrasound.

Your baby's skin is also becoming thicker and fleshier and increasingly wrinkled, thanks to the amniotic fluid. The skin will remain wrinkled for the first month or so after birth - just think about how your hands or feet look after you have been in the water for just 30 minutes! During this week, the brain continues its rapid growth, and the lungs continue to develop.
