Meanwhile, your body may be showing more evidence of all that growth and development in the form of. Pregnancy Symptoms Week 26.

Bloating and gas. Your expanding uterus continues to put more and more pressure on your stomach and intestines, resulting in the bloating you probably feel. Minimize the problem by eating several small meals a day instead of three large ones so that you don’t overload your digestive system.

  • I’m 26 weeks today and I have started noticing body parts pushing up in my belly since a few days ago, lol. I’m not so sure if I’m witnessing an elbow or foot tho.

  • hi Monica! wanna tell you that i like your videos. i really appreciate your efforts in explaining everything slowly and clearly that we expectant mothers dont know and should know about our pregnancy. All your videos are of great help to us. may God bless you more! Btw, im on my 26th week now and i want to know how frequent should my baby move? like every hour? if so how many movements? thank you

  • my baby is not active in this week i m 25 weeks and 3. days pregnant today,he actually kicks but not as much as he was doing in past weeks.is this normal? should i be worried about it?

  • Thanku for these informative videos

    I suffer from Kidney since 2008…however it has become more prominent in 2nd trimester…. its worst…since 2 months now

    I need taking pain killer but m scared if it would affect the baby….I try n bare the pain but helpless went it worsens….

    Doc has prescribed meftal….is it safe…. would it have any side effect on baby…

  • 26 weeks pregnant today with my second child. =) Im feeling the kicks more intense this time and just wondering if it’s normal to feel pain with the movements? You did say the muscles do weaken. Thanks:)

  • Hi, I am 26th week pregnant. I feel baby movements in lower abdomen only when I am sleeping only.
    I feel my tummy is small will it affect baby’s growth???

  • Am watching today am 26wk due May 2020 can’t wait for the big day. Enjoying my pregnancy, no stretch marks, no aching back, no depression am so active and so blessed. Baby see you soon love you so much!

  • I’m 26weeks and 4 days the doctors pushed my due date up before they found out the baby is bigger than they thought new due date Nov 30….

  • The emotions! I can go from bawling to happy to grumpy so fast. It feels like my emotions are all over the place, and even when I try to control them, they get the better of me.

  • Gooosh, I am starting my 26th week right now and I already feel like killing everybody around me when hungry �� last night I woke up at 3am, hungry as hell, grumpy as old man and cleaned up the fridge..what was worst, I had to go out for morning shopping because I was hungry again �� poor my man (please, do not leave me:D ) anyway, I feel movements but can’t recognize if it was ✋ or leg:)

  • Still research on bathing in tub, this will increase more fluid to the Amniotic fluid.There are important ingredients to use;epsom salt, favorite bubble bath, or lavender oil to relax. Also, to prevent virginal infection, don’t soak in tub for hours, limit is 10 minuets At 37°C (98°F). Higher temperatures can cause you fetus( baby) to get spina bifida.

    Raising your body temperature too high can lead to a drop in blood pressure, which carries a risk of reducing the amount of oxygen and nutrients that your baby is able to get and could lead to birth defects including miscarriage.

    Don’t be alone, Have someone help you out the tub, you may feel dizzy or have a slippery tub from the oils. A bottle of water is great too to prevent dehydration.

    Relax and have fun!!! ������ Congratulations Mothers to be! ����������������������������

If you and your doctor are satisfied that you dont have pre eclampsia then there is no need to do this test. Every woman need to make informed decision about their body and know whats best for them and their baby!
