26 weeks pregnant – what to expect

26 Weeks Pregnant, What to Expect

This week, your babys hearing improves, your blood pressure may increase, and you might start meeting other mums to be. Find out what else is happening to your baby and your body at week 26.

Your baby just keeps growing and growing. This week she weighs two pounds, and measures over 14 inches long, about the size of a scallion from top to toe. You could make a delicious salad with all the ingredients your baby has resembled over the past few months!

There are many developments with your baby this week. Firstly, her ears will be better developed and more sensitive than ever before: shell be able to hear your voice and your partners voice as you speak to each other.

Shell also slowly be opening her eyes. Those pretty peepers have been closed so far, to allow her retina to develop, but theyre now beginning to open and see whats going on inside your uterus. Try shining a torch at your stomach and see if your baby kicks in response to the stimulus. Its too early to know your babys eye colour, though: the coloured part of the eye, the iris, will only fill in over the next month or two.

There are other senses at work, too: your baby can now not only hear noises, but respond to them too, not by talking, of course, but by moving or with an increase in the pulse rate.

Your babys heart rate will have slowed down considerably by this week too, from 180 beats per minute to 140 to 150 beats per minute. This can be monitored on a cardiotocography (CTG) machine during your antenatal appointments and is a useful way of checking your babys wellbeing.

If youre having a boy, his testicles will soon begin to descend into his scrotum, a process that can take up to three months.

Take a peek down to that ever-growing belly and youll notice that your belly button is now very firmly an outie. This is due to your uterus swelling and pushing your abdomen forward. Dont worry, though, your belly button will go back into place in the months after your baby is born.

You should also keep an eye on your blood pressure. Your blood pressure will be checked at each antenatal appointment. In pregnancy, your blood pressure normally falls as blood vessels relax and dilate to cope with the extra blood volume flowing through them. This means you may feel faint or dizzy, especially if you stand up quickly.

However, about five to 10% of pregnancies can develop pregnancy hypertension (high blood pressure). Most cases are mild, but some can be complicated by pre-eclampsia, which along with high blood pressure, also has other symptoms such as protein in your urine. In general, blood pressure above 150/100 will need treatment.

  • Sleepless nights: Find yourself struggling with insomnia? Its no surprise, given all you have to deal with, from constantly needing the toilet to heartburn. Try to drink less before bed and to do a bit of exercise each day to help make drifting off easier.
  • Painful baby movements: As your baby grows, shes becoming more athletic than ever – but some of those artful kicks and shoves can, believe it or not, hurt! If the movements become painful, try to shift positions or stretch.
  • Migraines: If you suffered from migraines before becoming pregnant, chances are you may have them more often now youre pregnant. Steer clear of strong migraine medicine, but try holistic therapies such as massage, meditation and yoga, which are pregnancy-friendly.
  • Clumsiness: Find yourself knocking into things more than usual, or tripping up? This is due to your loosened joints, extra weight and your shifted centre of gravity. This won#39;t last forever – as with many other symptoms, it will disappear once you have your baby – but for now, take extra careful when youre on slippery surfaces and in the bath and shower.

Nows the time to start thinking about and looking into which antenatal classes, if any, youd like to take. The classes can be invaluable to lots of new mums as youll learn useful information on birth and how to care for your baby. And they can help socially, too, as you get to meet other mums in your area.

You can book yourself onto NHS classes though your local hospital or birth centre, or sign up for National Childbirth Trust (NCT) classes. Youll probably start these classes in the next few weeks and they can be in the daytime, evening or at weekends.

Youre entitled to time off work to attend them. Try and get your partner to go along, too, so he can get ready for your birth ndash; and your babyhellip;
