Today our baby is 26 weeks along, the size of a scallion, at about 14 inches. S/he weighs about 2 3/4 pounds. For size comparison, I put the bunch of scallions up to the Charlie Brown Bobblehead we got at the San Francisco Giants game this weekend.
The nerve networks in his or her ears increase this week so s/he may hear us talking, laughing, singing, along with sounds from other people and from TV, movies, etc. Amniotic fluid is breathed in and out helping his or her lungs develop. This is also practice for when baby first breaths outside the womb.
