week 26: EYE see you!

pregnancy calendar

Fetal development in pregnancy week 26:

At long last, your little swimmer can see the womb! Your miracle’s
little eyelids have finally separated (they were fused closed
previously) and they’re probably having their first moments of sight as
you read this (or maybe it already happened while you were brushing
your teeth or watching Oprah or something). In addition to seeing their
little studio in your belly, they’ve recently acquired the ability to
say “yes” and “no” in rudimentary sign language as they can now move
their head back and forth. This is also the time where your little
super star’s head hair is starting to grow! A cute little cowlick or
two may be springing into position right now, getting ready for years
of cute-but-stubborn bed-head. Also, their toenails have grown in and
you little raisin continues to slowly pile up fat beneath their
still-loose skin. Most importantly, brain tissue and neurons are all
developing at a rapid pace, increasing their (genius-level?) brain
activity and will continue to function at accelerated levels for the
first seven to eight years of childhood!
