Pregnancy - Week 26

Email Print

This could be called the reflexes week.

This week your baby starts breath mock-ups in the form of inhaling and exhaling amniotic fluid. She also starts moving her lips and mouth muscles and even sucking her fingers, especially her thumb or anything that comes close enough to her mouth, like her little hands, arms, the umbilical cord etc.

She also discovers the grasping reflex. She grasps everything she touches. Her fingers, her legs, the umbilical cord.

She is now 13 inches (33 cm) and around 1.75lbs (790 grams).
