Is there any lifestyle choices i can do to make my fetus not turn out to be a fussy/irritable infant? He's very active at 27 weeks. Anything i can do to calm and ease him?

In brief: No

The only cause and effect evidenced by medical study that causes a fussy/irritable baby is the effect of drugs like cocaine, heroin and caffeine.
Even a stressed out mom does not cause a stressed out baby since the physiological effects of maternal stress are transient. The good news; active infants at 27 weeks gestation do not predict actual infant behaviou after birth. Good luck! stay happy.
