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.
Labor Signs: Unlikely, but still lots and lots of contractions! Had an ultrasound today to hopefully get more answers and to rule out preterm labor contractions. Saw how flexible this little chicka is...already sucking on her toes!
Symptoms: Acid reflux has come in full force and made it's stay for good now. :( This weekend I was awoken from a dead sleep by the pain of it and had to guzzle some Maylox just to get a bit of relief, then had to sleep sitting up--ugh. Looks like I'll be taking in more apple cider vinegar, less gluten, less acid, eating much earlier and more almonds! Any other tips to curb this dreaded curse are appreciated!
