26 weeks pregnant

26 weeks and the size of an aubergine

On Wednesday we reached another week of pregnancy meaning we have now reached 26 weeks, our last week of the second trimester! This time next week I will be seven months pregnant and in the third trimester. Can not believe just how quickly this pregnancy is going and that at 26 weeks I still have my rings on!

What vegetable are you?

At 26 weeks Button has now grown to be the size of an aubergine around 36 cm in length and 1.75lb in weight!


Still none! I think this is the thing I am most happy about at the moment as last time I had so much selling it was unreal. My rings stopped fitting very early on and I had to buy new shoes as nothing fit!


Nothing new has occurred since my previous post - boobs hurt, heartburn, faintness, tiredness etc.

My ribs have been sorer than they have been but this is just a tiredness things rather than rib flare like last pregnancy which is a relief.

Baby update

At 26 weeks Button's lungs and brain are developing well and Button can now detect changes in light as well as hearing far more than it has been. His or her eyes are able to open and it is able to move about so much more than previously (oh how true this is).

  1. Sounds like you have had a quiet week, nice to hear that you are still able to wear your rings - it always feels so strange when you have to take them off.

  2. Great news that you aren't swelling too much this time, long may that continue! You are looking fabulous! xx

  3. Ah the good old fruit and veg comparisons! Love it! You're looking so well- and over half way already! Yipee! Thanks so much for sharing with #MaternityMatters x x x
