Week 26

Last week of the second trimester!

She’s still growing in the 13.6- to 14.8-inch and 1.5- to 2.5-pound range, and developing her senses, features and talents!

Her eyes are forming, and his eyes will soon start to open.

And her eyelashes are now grown, too.

She’s getting her immune system ready for life on the outside by soaking up your antibodies.

She’s taking breaths, too. They’re of amniotic fluid, not air, but it’s still good practice.

From Jessyka:  What to Expect When You’re Expecting suggests searching in the meat department for a 2-pound roast, yup! that’s the approximate size and weight of Harper right now.  All of her senses are now fully developed and she’ll begin reacting to light and sound rather than just bumping around.  And bump around she does, it’s definitely getting harder to sleep with the intermediate kicking and trying to get comfortable with all the extra cargo.  Also, becoming suddenly hungry and having to get up for a bowl of cereal!

One thought on “Week 26

  1. it’s so cool that she’s reacting to sounds and light! my textbook says that although she can’t see anything right now, she can hear you! And whatever sounds she’ll be hearing over the next three months will be her favorite sounds once she’s born. so start playing her some of your favorite music! And if you have a favorite book and start reading to her now, she’ll remember it once she’s born and prefer it over other books!
