Stages of Pregnancy Week by Week

What My Baby Looks Like in Week 27

Week 27 marks the beginning of your third trimester. Now your baby weighs about 2 pounds and, as you can see in the picture, she may begin to open her eyes.

Congratulations! You've reached the third trimester. At this key milestone, your developing baby now weighs about 2 pounds. Eyelashes are forming and your developing baby may now begin to open its eyes from time to time. Due in part to its larger size, increased body fat stores, and more mature lungs, your developing baby has a better chance of survival if born today.
