This week is a great milestone for you and your baby.
As the due date is coming closer it could be an exciting time for the couple, and other family members.
You may experience some 27 weeks pregnant symptoms during this period like backaches, hemorrhoids, changes in the hair skin and nail, and so on.
Here are some symptoms of 27 weeks pregnancy.
Skin, nail and hair changes
They may grow faster, thicker or be brittle. The pregnancy hormones can result in the skin hyperpigmentation, especially if you are having darker skin to start with. This may result in the darker moles or freckles, a dark mark down from the center of your stomach, or darkened skin patches on the face which is called as chloasma. Do not be worried about this, this will disappear after delivery. Just be in shade places as sunlight may increase this hyperpigmentation.
The developing uterus may put additional pressure on the rectum, causing it to lose some regulation on the muscles in the rear. Add your digestive system which is in the sluggish state to the equation and you may notice that you are especially gassy. Try to consume frequent short meals as it does not strain your digestive system.
Some professionals theorize that these cramps at the time of pregnancy may occur because of the shortage of magnesium or calcium in the diet. You can reduce these painful spasms frequency by having prenatal vitamin every day.
Not only your center of gravity is shifting and applying more pressure on the back, but a hormone called as relaxin also results in the joints and ligaments to loosen and stretch, which leads to the additional pain in the back.
Stress incontinence is common at the time of pregnancy. Urine may leak when you laugh, change positions, cough, exercise, or when you run. Because of the hormonal influence, and also to the bladder compression by growing baby, you may have this symptom anytime at the time of pregnancy, but it is mostly common in the third trimester.
Constipation can start in the early levels of the pregnancy. It is mainly due to the hormones that slow down the digestive process and the raised pressure on the bowels by expanding the uterus. The uterus directly rests on the bladder which can result in the urination problems like slowed urine elimination, frequent urination and the possibility for the infection of the urinary tract.
Occasional dizziness or faintness
Your growing uterus can apply stress on the blood vessels, which leads to the reduced flow of blood to the brain. This results in the light headedness. So drink at least 8 glasses of water per day to make the blood pump through the circulatory system easily.
