26 weeks

How your baby's growing: Your baby now weighs about a pound and two-thirds and measures 14 inches (an English hothouse cucumber), from head to heel. The nerve pathways in his ears are developing, which means his response to sounds is growing more consistent. His lungs are developing now, too, as he continues to take small breaths of amniotic fluid — good practice for when he's born and takes that first breath of air. If you're having a boy, his testicles are beginning to descend into his scrotum — a trip that will take about two to three days.

We haven't taken a photo yet this week. But I think I'm about the same as last week. I had my doctor's appointment last week and I have now gained 12 pounds total. I thought it was going to be more honestly. Everything is still looking good. I have to get the glucose screening test in a couple weeks. Not looking forward to drinking the nasty sugar drink. Asher is still quite the mover and as he gets bigger, so do those kicks and rolls or whatever it is he's doing in there! It's really crazy to watch my belly move up and down and all over as he moves.
