My Pregnancy Week 26Brought to you by
Your baby continues to grow and develop inside of you. Measuring about 14 inches long, she weighs just less than 2 pounds! Her lungs continue to develop, and she is taking small breaths of amniotic fluid inside your womb. These small breaths are getting her in shape for her first breath of fresh air. Her veins are visible through her transparent skin, but soon that will change, as her skin begins to turn opaque.
The nerve pathways are becoming more and more developed, making him more responsive to sound. Don't be surprised if you feel him jump inside of you if he is startled by a sudden noise. If you're having a boy, his testicles are descending into his scrotum. Also, he may be developing the cute habit of thumb-sucking right now!
