When you're 26 weeks pregnant, your baby's eyes are probably opening and beginning to blink. It is likely that you will put on weight at a rate of about a pound a week from this point on, and you may also experience Braxton Hicks contractions. During week 26 of pregnancy, your baby may respond to touch and begin to make breathing movements. When you are 26 weeks pregnant, you and your partner may wish to think about where the baby will sleep after he or she is born.
You are 26 weeks pregnant -- this is your last week of the second trimester. During week 26 of pregnancy, your baby will be about 9.2 inches long and will weigh around 2 pounds.
At this point, it would be a good idea to make sure to get plenty of rest. Your baby is counting on you to stay strong and healthy and to act as a personal incubator until he or she is born.
