This week marks 26 weeks pregnant, or 145 total weeks of pregnancy. Only a matter of months I’ll be holding another sweet little baby again, that’s my focus! Must keep focus people!
Our little bambino is on a growing spree and this mama is EXHAUSTED. I feel like my body is working overtime to make this little baby. It’s all for a good cause.
According to this week’s Babble Weekly Baby Update, this baby is the size of 3 russet potatoes. To me, this thing feels like a watermelon.
Your baby might be developing an adorable habit this week: thumb-sucking. While the baby’s hands remain clenched most of the day, he/she might unclench and stick out his/her thumb every now and then. If the baby likes the comfort from sucking, it might just be a well-established habit way before a pacifier is ever seen.
Your baby now has distinct sleeping and waking cycles, as well. You may find a pattern; at certain times of the day she’s very active, somersaulting and boxing, while at other times, she sleeps. In addition, all five senses are now fully developed.
