they are getting to be such a little change in terms of limbs they are now around thirty five and a half centimeters long which is roughly the same length as a large spring run is one positive with every passing week is that your baby has a growing chance of surviving outside the womb with specialist care should they be born early and only 26 it's quite a special week because they are now practicing breathing in and out in the surrounding amniotic fluid ready to the days appear for their eyes will also start to open at around 26 weeks which is a lovely thought isn't it though their vision will still be a little bit undeveloped at the moment but that will change in the coming weeks and while run the task revise a wonder what eye color they're going to have it won't be long until the iris which is the colored part of your eye starts to take on pigmentation so ask for the final color you may be kept guessing way afterwards a lot of babies are typically born with blue eyes but

  1. 26 weeks today. I'm so jealous of women who are having multiple kicks and movement. My baby girl moves a bit every day, but her kicks/movements aren't hard or forceful at all, just small bumps. Definitely not able to see body parts pushing out. Even Daddy has only felt her once during a particularly active 3 minutes. 😩 Is anyone else experiencing this? Baby is healthy and growing well so far.

  2. Are you a midwife? You're very empathetic to other mothers out there, thank you for your wonderful content it's so uplifting

  3. The only time I haven’t been able to sleep is when I get really bad heartburn! But i am pregnant with my second babygirl 💖 she is due oct 24th and I’m so excited to see her!!

  4. 26+2 getting to pee so much in the night
    Getting really uncomfortable and feeling huge
    Plus leg and foot cramps NICE
    Being induced no later than 37 weeks so really feeling close to D day now.
    Cant believe will be in 3rd trimester in just a few days.

  5. No dear not ever baby will have blue eyes!! I hope you know GOD created different races. I am a black women. I dont have blue eyes either. I hope you know different races are looking at this. And if this was a video just intended for white people you should have disclosed that. Shame on you😠

  6. 26 weeks with my first ! (Its a Boy!!) 💛
    Leg cramps are terrible.. A bit of yellow mustard really helps ladies!
    Blessings and luck to you all 🌷

  7. I'm two days away from being 26 weeks; watched the video a bit early. The last two weeks have been really hard and emotional as my dog passed away. So I've been exhausted, loosing patience with my commute, and crying 1-5 times a day. Sleep is getting harder with leg cramps and heartburn. My baby is kicking all the time which is fun, and earlier this week I took a video of my belly where you can see it moving!

  8. 25 but not feeling pregnant or getting any difficulties of pregnancy the only thing that makes me feel i'm really pregnant is the kicks and movements and the belly getting bigger otherwise i'm just fine. But they say the last two months gonna be heavy😴

  9. I still don’t know what week is 3rd trimester but at the most we only have 2 more weeks! So excited to be passing into the final trimester!! I’ve been tired, a little nasal congestion, and of course bad heart burn but I’ve had it the entire time.

  10. I'm 26 weeks and my bump is huge! Leg cramps like crazy, i feel like there's another one hiding in there lol

  11. 26 weeks pregnant and sleeping is okay , don't know the gender yet cos I'm 19years in varsity so I can't afford medical aid yet ,public health care is less beneficial than having medical aid but soon I'll know the gender , I think it's a boy though , the kicks are super hard I can tell this is a strong baby , my back is fine for now , my nose is not ,breathing is becoming hard , wasn't exited at first cos I wasn't expecting a child so early but now I'm too attached and excited .

  12. Hey all I'm 26 today…having bad back pains and trying to disguise the waddle walk lol…I'm going to treat myself to a facial and pedicure today x

  13. Feels like I totally skipped the honeymoon phase, since the 16th week my bump is weightening me down 😅 so hard to fall asleep before midnight and the leg cramps are real
