At 26 weeks pregnant, your baby is the size of a head of lettuce. Tiny fingerprints and footprints are forming.

You’re probably feeling movements throughout the day. You may notice that the baby changes what they’re doing in response to what you’re doing.

As your little one gets bigger, they may crowd your lungs. So you may feel short of breath at times. Be sure to take breaks when walking or exercising.

Considering breastfeeding? Taking a class now can help you learn what to expect and how to handle issues. At 26 weeks, you should still be seeing your provider about once every four weeks. Starting the third trimester, you’ll see them once every two weeks.
