One Fish, Two Fish

Week 26 February 23, 2008

Filed under: Baby,Pregnant!,Second Trimester — leighnut @ 5:03 pm

It’s week 26 — the last week of the second trimester. Can you believe it?? Neither can I. 🙂 I get weekly updates from a variety of sources that tell me the developmental milestones that the baby achieves each week. This week’s update is especially fun, so I thought I’d share it with you. This is from Pregnancy Weekly:

“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!”

We are definitely going to try it!!

    I know. I love reading the updates every week. I tried the flashlight thing, but I think it needed new batteries because the light was really weak. No jumping. Haven’t tried the music thing yet.

    Maybe I should post the development updates every week…
