26 weeks pregnant: Fast facts
Your baby weighs about 1 2/3 lbs and measures 14 inches – about the length of a scallion.
Your baby is inhaling and exhaling small amounts of amniotic fluid – essential for lung development. If you're having a boy, his testicles will soon begin to descend into his scrotum – a trip that will take two to three months.
Craving junk food? It's okay to indulge occasionally. But stay focused on foods you and your baby need. Keep healthy snacks on hand and eat a good breakfast. And try making healthier food swaps, like sparkling flavored water instead of soda.
If you feel tiny rhythmic movements, it may be your baby hiccuping in the womb! Don't worry, it's totally normal.
