27 Weeks

We picked up bubbas cot in the holidays and Shannon had fun putting it all together…

Bubba this week – 

Your Baby

  • Fetal size: 24cm (9.6 inches). Fetal weight: 1 kg (just over 2 pounds). The head to toe length of your baby can now be approximated (until now, the measurements have been approximations of the crown-rump measurements). This week the crown-toe measurement is approximately 34cm (15.3 inches).
  • At about this time the retina develops. The retina is located at the back of the eye and receives light and light images & information, and transmits it to the brain where it is interpreted.
  • The lungs continue to develop, and this week the special moistening agent surfactant production begins. Surfactant stops the walls of the lungs from sticking together when we exhale. Along with the production of surfactant, the network of blood vessels servicing the lungs increases.
  • Your baby has been able to hear since about Week 20 but loud, sudden, or unexpected noises may still cause your baby to jump or kick. Your baby more easily hears lower and deeper tones, however your own voice is more easily heard than your partners. When you and your partner talk, your baby can hear the rhythm and patterns of your speech.


Can you believe bubs is getting so big?! I can…some days I can hardly breath! and talk about kick the stuffin out of me…I guess bubs is only going to get bigger and stronger though ( I do want a strong bubba, don’t get me wrong, it would just be nice to breath some times thats all).

Dannii is throwing me a baby shower on the 27th May which is really nice of her. We are having it at her house at 2pm as an afternoon tea which will be lovely.

Feeling really tired today. Back to school this week and we had teachers meetings on Sunday as well so worked a 6 day week this week. Had a mini sports day at school today and I had to stand out in the sun for about 1 1/2 hours so had a headache and really nackered after that. Just loving ice cold water at the moment and can’t get enough of the stuff except bubs takes up too much room in my tum so get too full to quick from drinking it, oh and of course it means i have to go to the toilet more…doh! and you know your tummy is definatly getting big when it’s hard to wipe yourself after going to the toilet (TMI I know but so true!).

Going to Jodi & Brett Barons for lunch after church tomorrow. Brett is the new PE teacher working with Shannon. So that’ll be nice.

Anyhow, should go. Belly rubs for all, J xox

Especially for you Tam, can you believe only 3 weeks till you have your bubba?! I’m so excited, can’t wait to meet the precious little one. xx.

    Hello Jodi and Shannon,

    You must be so proud of your growing tummy. I have been checking your website occasionally to see how it is all progressing. I am most jealous of the little bits about cute fingers and such : ) I think I need a baby too. I am clucky as a hen but hopefully I don’t look like one.
    Going to see a specialist endo something a rather on Monday so I can obtain more chemicals in an effort to get pregnant.

    Hope Shannon is sharing the gym with you. Important to get toned muscles so you can lift the baby when it finally emerges.

    Hugs for you both and the puppy.
    Jessie L.
