Week 26 of pregnancy

Measuring bub from top to toe with his legs extended, he is about 35.6 centimetres. He weighs a little more than 760 grams. His eyes begin to open around now. Response to sound grows more consistent toward the end of the seventh month, when the network of nerves to the ear is complete. He also continues to take small breaths and although he's only breathing in water and not air, it's still good practice for when he's born. 

Since your baby is now growing so fast, and brain development is so intense at this stage, your nutrition is very important. Continue to eat a well-balanced diet that includes plenty of grains and vegetables. Fibre-rich foods, including whole-grain breads and cereals, lentils and brown rice are high in vitamin B and help fend off constipation.

Braxton Hicks contractions have increased more. I remember during Aarav's time, I used to get them mainly during evenings but this time I could feel them 24 hours. Feel so good that I don't have to worry about Gestational diabetes.
