Week 27

You’ll be happy to know that you’re almost in the home stretch; this is the last week of your second trimester. Your baby is starting to show brain activity now. It will continue to develop in complexity over the next few weeks. He or she is also continuing to practice inhaling and exhaling with his or her rapidly developing lungs.

Have some family fun by getting your partner to press his ear to your belly as he might be able to hear the baby’s heartbeat.

To take your mind off the late pregnancy symptoms and general strain of carrying your little angel, it might be time to start thinking about picking up some clothes for your new arrival.
