Fetal Development Pictures | 27 Weeks
Fetal Development at 27 weeks:
eyesEyesThe retinas of the eyes appear as dark spots, and the eyelid folds are beginning to form around them.
tongueTongueYour baby now has taste buds on her tongue and inside her cheeks. In fact, the flavors of the food you eat will travel to the fetus through the amniotic fluid, and it's not uncommon for the baby to show appreciation (or distaste) with a kick or wiggle.
What's happening this week:
Your baby is getting rounder as fat begins to accumulate. The hair, eyebrows and eyelashes have grown, and the eyes will open for the first time this week. Baby is around 9 1/2 inches from crown to rump, but he's still able to somersault fairly easily.
