Pregnancy Week 26: Baby Growth

Does your tummy might feel like a football field? Well that’s because your baby vigorously practicing kicks and somersaults! Your little football champ is about 14 inches long and weighs about 800 grams this week.

Your baby's ears are now better developed and are more sensitive, which means s/he may now be able to hear your voice. The little one is inhaling and exhaling small amounts of amniotic fluid, which is essential for the development of those lungs. These movements are good practice for when the baby will take that first gulp of air.

Your doctor might ask you to keep a count of your baby’s movements. Ten movements in an hour especially when the baby is active is what needs to be accounted for. But remember, each baby is unique and will have a unique pattern of movements. Comparing your baby’s movements with others’ even at the same stage of pregnancy, is not a good idea.
