26 Weeks pregnant

Week 26 starts on day 182 and goes up to day 189. It is your twenty-seventh pregnancy week.


Length of your baby: 33 centimeter / 13 inches
Weight of your baby: 720 grams / 1 lbs 9 ozs

Your pregnancy at 26 weeks 

 

What's happening with mum 

Around this time your doctor may discuss screening for gestational diabetes. This is a condition which develops when your body cannot produce enough insulin to meet the increased levels required during pregnancy.

This condition usually disappears after the birth but requires careful monitoring during pregnancy to prevent certain fetal conditions such as macrosomia which can have serious consequences for your baby.

You may find yourself suffering more from heartburn now as hormones exert their influence yet again, causing the muscles to relax, including the valve that separates the esophagus from the stomach. This can cause gastric acid to seep back up ito your throar causing discomfort and an acid taste.

 

What's happening with baby

Your baby will now be around 9 inches long and will weigh approximately 1.6 pounds.

At 26 weeks eyebrows and eyelashes are formed and eyes begin to open.

Baby's lungs continue to develop and he is almost able to begin breathing air.

If you are having a boy, his testicles are now descending into the scrotum.
