At 26 weeks your baby is approximately 14 inches(about the size of a scallion) from head to toe, and weighs approximately 1.5 pounds.
This week, fetal brain scans show response to touch. Your baby's eyes begin to open around now. Response to sound grows more consistent toward the end of the seventh month, when the network of nerves to the ear is complete. Since your baby is now growing so fast, brain development is very intense at this stage and nutrition is very important.
Note: Every baby develops a little differently — even in the womb. This information is to give you a general idea of your baby's size.
