So here is the 27 week update (this would have been Wednesday December 22nd)!
At this point Evie should weigh almost 2lbs. At our unscheduled ultrasound on the 23rd she weighed 2lbs and 3 ounces. The ultrasound tech said that was underweight and in the 44th percentile. After some googling however, all charts show that the average weight for a 27 week baby is 1.93lbs and that anything between the 10th and 90th percentile is normal. Unless my doctor tells me otherwise -- I am going with GOOGLE on this one! Evie should be sleeping and waking at regular intervals now. These intervals are different than what they used to be, and I can't quite figure them out. I am sure once she shows up we will find out really quickly what her sleeping patterns are! Evie is regularly opening and closing her eyes and more than likely sucking her thumb. Her lungs continue to practice breathing motions in preparation for the day she pops out and takes her first real breath of air! Her brain activity is really ramping up right now! She is learning to react to both noise and light! I still have not tried the flash light trick yet!
At week 27 Evie is the size of califlower!
Here is what Evie might look like! She should be about 14.5in long. Something tells me though that she is probably a little on the short side!
