Week 26: Let’s dance
The baby continues to become more aware of its surroundings and respond to changes in its environment. Its eyes are now fully formed. Its skin is sensitive to touch. Its pulse quickens as it reacts to sounds, and it can even move in rhythm to music. This is more than its father can do.
The baby is, of course, still growing now measuring approximately 9 ¼” long (head to rump) and weighing almost 2 lbs. It is large enough that you can hear its heartbeat if you place your ear against Amanda’s abdomen.
