Welcome to Week 26 of my week by week pregnancy guide. If you want to catch up with previous weeks, scroll to the bottom.
Some sources say that this is the last week of your second trimester. Others say you still have a few weeks. Either way it is silly to assume that there is a clear delineation between trimesters and at a specific week things dramatically change. However, there will be some changes, immediate or not.
I usually don’t discuss the medical stuff happening with your baby because there are so many more sources that do a much better job. However, I have to say (with lots of excitement) that this week your baby’s eyes will start to open. I was terribly happy to hear this, but also a little confused. What is the baby looking at? It is dark in there!
This week I felt like it was more of a transition week. Nothing very important going on, meaning nothing new started. I was still experiencing a lot of the stuff from the previous week, which would stay with me until delivery, but I think I was starting to get used to a lot of it.
Stay tuned for the next exciting week, next Monday!
