How Big is Your Baby?

This week, your baby grows tall and gains more weight as a part of its healthy development. At the end of Week 27, your little one is more likely to grow an entire inch long and measure around 14 inches. The light sensitive region of the eye, retina, and the taste buds develop inside the baby. Now your baby knows how to suck his/her thumb and might have experienced hiccups already. Unlike us, the baby doesn't make noise as he/she is breathing amniotic fluid instead of air but you can feel a little jump when he/she experiences hiccups. The brain has fully developed and this week, the fine tuning happens at a fast pace.
