|The size of an average baby at 26 weeks|
- The eyes are forming, and will soon start to open.
- Eyelashes are now grown, too.
- The baby is getting the immune system ready for life on the outside by soaking up your antibodies.
- They are taking breaths, too. They're of amniotic fluid, not air, but it's still good practice.
They are also moving a lot at this point. Sometimes, though, you don't feel movement for awhile. This is when I become a movement junkie. I'll do anything to get a movement going. I'll eat a piece of candy and then lay on my right side. I KNOW you're supposed to lay on your left side, but I really want to feel movement. Then, I'll feel a hint of a kick and decide I want another kick. I'll poke at my stomach and wait for a response. There is something so reassuring about those kicks. Then again, it's a little strange to feel the kick in the first place. That reminder that there is a human inside is slightly creepy.
That's all for today :)
