we’re 26 weeks today. right now he weighs about a pound and 2/3rds, and measures around 14 inches, or the length of an english hothouse cucumber. his nerves in his ear are developing and he can hear more now. he is putting on his baby fat now, and his boy parts are dropping into place. we have only 14 weeks until we meet castle.
this week castle is the length of a spaghetti squash (11 inches) and weighs 1 pound. 😀 he is doing great and growing all the parts he needs to be a functioning human outside of my belly. i feel him starting to take up most of my belly, making my breath shorter and my heart burn more severe. have you ever seen what happens to a mama’s organs while she is pregnant? it isn’t pretty! the doc says he is looking great and is a normal size baby, despite some of my previous thoughts. they did say he has long legs though. 🙂
