Fetal Fact of the Day

26 weeks today.

From head to toe, my baby measures about 14in/35.6cm and weighs a little more than 1.6lbs/760g. (So can't blame the 10lbs on the baby!!)

My baby's eyes begin to open around now. Response to sound grows more consistent toward the end of the seventh month, when the network of nerves to the ear is complete. Baby also continues to take small breaths and although only breathing in water and not air, it's still good practice for when bubs is born.
