Week 26!

The General is growing. . . or at least making me grow : )

We are 26 weeks along. He should be around 14 inches tall and weigh around a pound and a half. His length is comparable to an "English hothouse cucumber"

Robert should be learning how to "breathe", he is practicing by inhaling and exhaling the fluid around him.
His ears continue to develop, and, Lord willing, if they are growing correctly, he could be able to hear regular volume voices that are near to me.
Robert is putting on fat, hence his making me grow rounder.

I'm getting more and more excited about holding Robert, but more and more anxious about the delivery. Though, I am trusting the Lord for the courage in delivering Robert, and resting in the fact that He made the female body for doing this as one of her purposes. 


  1. I am excited with you dear! I will pray for the Lord to give you peace and calm as the delivery draws near. May you have a safe and healthy delivery of a healthy, sweet little boy.

    Love you!

    “The LORD will give strength unto his people; the LORD will bless his people with peace.” Psalm 29:11

  2. The Lord will give you the courage & the strength when the time comes. "He will never leave you or forsake you" And believe me, when its time ~ you will be ready! And you will be much more comfortable physically! Keep your options open and rely on the Lord for what he wants and how he wants it.

  3. You mom is right, you will also be so ready to hold the little general that you will be ready to 'go for it!'. I won't say anything like 'you'll forget the pain" - but when you are done, it really won't matter! You'll do great!!
    Love you, Aunt Brenda
