Your baby at 26 weeks
The baby’s eyelids open for the first time around now and they will soon start blinking. It’s not until some weeks after the birth that your baby’s eyes become the colour they will stay.
You at 26 weeks
Pregnancy and birth can weaken the muscles of the pelvic floor and you may notice you leak pee when you cough, sneeze or strain your stomach muscles. Your pelvic floor is made up of layers of muscles inside your body that stretch like a hammock from the pubic bone (in front) to the end of the backbone. Pelvic floor exercises can help strengthen the muscles so they work better.
