26 weeks!

31 Dec

How your baby’s growing:

The network of nerves in your baby’s ears is better developed and more sensitive than before. He may now be able to hear both your voice and your partner’s as you chat with each other. He’s inhaling and exhaling small amounts of amniotic fluid, which is essential for the development of his lungs. These so-called breathing movements are also good practice for when he’s born and takes that first gulp of air. And he’s continuing to put on baby fat. He now weighs about a pound and two-thirds and measures 14 inches (an English hothouse cucumber) from head to heel. 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.

Here is my 26 week belly! I think I’m growing by the day! Neely is moving around a LOT more lately! Last night while I was sleeping I kept waking up and every time I woke up she was in there rolling around! It was super cute. I LOVE feeling her moving. I just think she’s the cutest baby in the world already! I don’t even mind the almost constant heartburn! I am bff’s with Tums! I think I’m now on my 5th bottle! haha! My maternity tank tops are getting verry tight.
Yesterday my grandma took me shopping along with my mom and bought me a CUTE black dress (for my baby showers) and a CUTE navy blue sweater! Isn’t that nice? I love new cute maternity clothes!
I hope everyone has a safe & happy new year!! We’re going to have a nice calm night with my parents and watch the fireworks through their bedroom window. Apparently we’re practicing being elderly, lol! (sorry Mom!)
2010 will be our best year yet, I just know it!
