Your 26 weeks pregnant!!
98 days to go!
Baby is measuring: 14.0 inches & 1.68 lbs 📏

Baby’s eyes are forming, and the eyes will soon start to open. 👀
And eyelashes are now grown too.
Baby’s getting his or her immune system ready for life on the outside by soaking up your antibodies. 👏🏻
Baby’s taking breaths too- of amniotic fluid, not air. But still, it’s good practice!
Trouble sleeping. The closer you get to your due date, the tougher it might be to get some rest! 🛏
Swelling. This also might not let up for a while.
Headaches, due to hormone fluctuations or stress. 😩
Pregnancy brain- is it getting tricky to remember stuff?
Braxton Hicks contractions. These are different from labor contractions because they’re irregular and milder. 🤰🏼
Slightly higher blood pressure. That’s normal at this phase of pregnancy.
Things to do: 📝
- Tour your maternity ward. 🏥
- Preregister with the hospital.
- Communicate with your baby- by reading, singing or even just talking to him or her! 📚🎤
- Spend time with your partner.
