Pregnancy information: week 26 of being pregnant - Other people may feel your baby's kick under your bump and you'll probably feel her movements every day.
Go to the dentist for a check up if you have not been in the last three months, if you need any work there is still time before your baby is born. Other people may feel your baby's kick under your bump and you'll probably feel her movements every day. You may feel like you are going to tip over because of the weight you are carrying at the front of your body, and you may have problems tying shoelaces or driving.
Your hair normally grows in a growth/loss cycle, but hair loss slows in pregnancy so it appears thicker. The extra hair starts dropping when your baby is about three months old. Invest in a haircut that will be easy to maintain once your baby is born.
Your baby will have a major growth spurt from now until 29 weeks. By 26 to 28 weeks the lungs are more ready to breathe if your baby was to be born early. Your baby's heartbeat has dropped to an average of 150 beats a minute now. Boys tend to have rates below this and girls above.
