Your baby's the size of an eggplant!
She's still growing in the 13.6- to 14.8-inch and 1.5- to 2.5-pound range, and developing her senses, features and talents!
your baby at 26 weeks
- Her eyes are forming, and his eyes will soon start to open.
- And her eyelashes are now grown, too.
- She's getting her immune system ready for life on the outside by soaking up your antibodies.
- She's taking breaths, too. They're of amniotic fluid, not air, but it's still good practice.
Due Date: February 9, 2012!
Weight Gain:15 (I"ll get an official number at tomorrow appointment)
Symptoms: Just plain worn out this week. Granted it's been a really busy couple of weeks and the next couple of weeks are busy with Turkey day right around the corner
What's different this time: Movement isn't as pronounced
Cravings: sweets. and home cooked meals! Good thing my momma was here over the weekend and was kind enough to make fried chicken!
Sleep: The last couple of nights have been good. I put flannel sheets on the bed and I absolutley love curling up in flannel sheets. On the other hand, Ian complained that I never sleep on my left side (facing him) so I gave it a shot. Holy batman. It took way too much effort for me to get turned over and situated!
I am loving: that Owen is talking about 'the baby' a lot now. My big girl turns 7 today!!! And since the parents were in town over the weekend, ian and I got a night out for a fantastic dinner and a play
I miss: being able to have a glass of wine with the above mentioned fancy dinner. oh well. :)
I am looking forward to:beef cube steaks with mashed potatoes for dinner this week. and being able to watch Greys on Thurs!
I'm spazzing about: convincing Ian of a couple of things that need to happen
Best thing about this week: Home cooked meals, spending time with my mom, throwing Ady a birthday party, date night with the husband.
Milestones:We've reached viability. meaning, that if for some reason I went into labor now, Little Lady would have a fighting chance at survivial
Movement: I'm starting to feel her move around more and more. Mostly when I actually stop and relax for a few minutes!
It's a...: I was right! It's a girl!!!
