Week 26: Seeing Light and Hearing Sounds

I got this email from PregnancyWeekly.
Your baby weighs almost 2 pounds, measures around 14 inches from head to heel, and hears noises, responds to light, and is generally more aware of its surroundings. In the same way that you can see a flashlight if you hold it against your palm, your baby can see the light coming through your belly. You may notice increased activity when in brighter light and decreased activity in darkened rooms. Its hearing is fully developed, and as he or she reacts to sounds, its pulse increases. Your baby may even move in rhythm to music! If this is not your first baby and you delivered your first by c-section, you may still be able to deliver this one vaginally. If you would like to attempt a VBAC (vaginal birth after c-section), be sure to discuss it with your doctor sooner rather than later.

What else can we expect in the coming weeks?

I hopped over from Frazzmom. Congrats !!

Since you asked, you can expect your boddy to grow bigger than you ever believed it could, to pee more than you ever thought you could, to itch more than any woman should, and to be crabbier than your husband ever thought you could be.

The upside is that you will probably nest like a fiend and clean out every drawer, closet and shelf in your entire house. And consider painting every wall a different color. And then spend a week on the couch recuperating and exhausted.

Enjoy :)

I think that you have expressed every feeling that my wife has explained to me. Thank you for the post. Both my wife and myself are experiencing our first. I have so much to learn!
