Your Body at Week 26
When changing position or standing up to quickly, you may have noticed that feel lightheaded or dizziness. This is very common at this stage in pregnancy, as the increased volume of blood takes a little while longer to distributed to the rest of your body.
Making sure you are not getting up to quickly can reduce those dizzy spells. If however, you do find yourself become faint, sit down wherever you are, with your head in between your knees and take a few deep breaths. Allow the blood from your legs to travel up to your brain as quickly as possible.
Your Baby At Week 26
At this point in your pregnancy, your baby's eyelids will have opened. Every baby is born with blue eyes, but the final colour of their eyes is not revealed until many weeks after you have given birth.
