Pregnancy: Weeks 23-26

In the sixth month, your baby's brain is growing rapidly and hearing is well developed. (In fact, studies have found that unborn babies can communicate a preference for classical music over rock.)

A human fetus at 26 weeks. At this time, your baby will weigh about 1½ pounds and be 9 inches long.

Week Number 23

Week Number 24

Week Number 25

Week Number 26

As your second trimester ends, take some time to sit back and enjoy it. Very soon your pregnancy will be over and all the days you dedicated to creating a new human being will be only a vague memory. Cherish them now.
