The network of nerves in your baby's ears is better developed and more sensitive than before. He may now be able to hear both your voice and your partner's as you chat with each other. He's inhaling and exhaling small amounts of amniotic fluid, which is essential for the development of his lungs. These so-called breathing movements are also good practice for when he's born and takes that first gulp of air. And he's continuing to put on baby fat. He now weighs about a pound and two-thirds and measures 14 inches (an English hothouse cucumber) from head to heel. If you're having a boy, his testicles are beginning to descend into his scrotum — a trip that will take two to three days.
26 week and stomach bug!
UGH! That about describes pregnancy for me this week... and hence why you need to excuse the terrible picture! I just about didnt post it but then I was like.. well ya know, this is the real me- not always glamourous ha! I caught what must be the stomach bug while at the convention this week and am better but still recovering. I have definitely decided it is not good to have both crazy stuff going on with your stomach AND a baby boy kicking you like crazy! It definitely made it worse, this being the first real time I have been sick while pregnant. Very blessed to know that he is okay in there though... still doing everything he can to let me know he is there :)
