Do you have any stretch marks yet? If you don't have them by now, hang on, you're not in the clear just yet. Sometimes they don't show up until the very last minute. That's really frustrating for many people. You're not alone.

 

You are probably starting to feel a bit more tired as the third trimester creeps up. Don't panic, it typically comes on slowly rather than striking all at once. Enjoy these last few weeks of the second trimester. The third trimester will sneak up on you and you'll wonder what happened. Here are pregnancy photos from the second trimester, 26 weeks pregnant in this belly gallery.

Stretch marks are a fact of life for many pregnant women. Don't panic, just cope. Keep your skin well hydrated, lotion it up for comfort. Even with lotion you might get some stretch marks. It's all good.

This mom is 26 weeks pregnant with her third baby. It's a boy! Sarah is preparing her other children for a new baby. She's probably reading them books and talking about what they were like as infants. It's certainly a trip down memory lane, but it's also instructive for the kids as the prepare for a sibling.

At 26 weeks hopefully this mom has started her childbirth classes. It may seem early, but the information that you get in a childbirth class is great and can be used throughout your pregnancy. It helps you plan ahead for the birth as well, and if you take it early enough you still have time to act on the information you learn.

This perfectly rounded belly would be great as a belly cast. I hope she's planning to do something to remember this belly with in pregnancy.

The stretch marks here are from a previous pregnancy. Though having twins has this mom stretched out to the max, the stretch marks aren't growing. They might not grow at all or it make wait until the end of the pregnancy.

The stretch marks are silvery and not red, this indicates that they are from a previous pregnancy. Feeling twins move is a bit different than feeling one baby. You might feel a lot of movement all over - like an octopus. Or one baby might move more than the other. It really depends on the personality of the babies.

This mom is still wearing her street clothes at 26 weeks along. She's obviously done this before, but it also looks like she's going to have to break out her maternity wear before long. The longer you delay wearing maternity clothes, the less you grow tired of them in the end.
