I found this online, because I am now in my 27th week: Pregnancy & Baby Index : Pregnancy Week by Week : Week 27 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Week 27 Your pregnancy now: 27 weeks Age since conception: 25 weeks [more about dates] What your baby's up to This week marks the beginning of the third trimester. The retina, which is important in the reception of light images, develops its normal layers by the 27th week of gestation. These layers are important in receiving light and light information and transmitting it to the brain for interpretation. Your baby's skin is very wrinkled from floating in water. This will stay this way until a few weeks after birth as your newborn fills out into a baby. Your baby is about 14.5 inches long, and weighs over two pounds.
