I have been so bad about updating this. Sorry!
|BUMP... 26 Weeks! Lucie wanted to be in the pic too. :)|
How Far Along: 26 Weeks
Size of baby: Eggplant... at our ultrasound last week he was measuring at almost 2 pounds! We've come a long way since the poppyseed at 4 weeks! :)
Total Weight Gain/Loss: Since becoming pregnant I lost approx 13-15 pounds and at 26 weeks I have finally gained it all back. And... can you believe my
jerk of a doctor told me I might be gaining TOO much weight!
Maternity Clothes: I have several maternity dresses that I wear often. I can still wear my pre-pregnancy pants with the bella band, but it's not very comfortable. I do love showing off the bump, so I have been opting for form fitting shirts instead of the "tent" shirts.
|25 Weeks... visit to Boyd's Orchard|
Gender: TEAM BLUE! We've had a few ultrasounds since the gender determination one at 16 weeks and there is no doubt Baby H is a boy. He proudly shows himself at every ultrasound.
Movement: This kid never stops moving! I LOVE IT! Pregnancy has been really
miserable rough, but those kicks/punches/rolls/dance moves are the best feelings in the world!
Sleep: Getting better at sleeping on my side. I still have to make several trips to the bathroom through the night, but am able to get back to sleep quickly. I usually go to bed around 9:30 and sleep til 6:45ish. Haven't experienced much tiredness during the day, but that is probably b/c I get so much sleep at night. I really hope that doesn't change.
What I miss: I gave in one day and ate Jimmy Johns... it was fabulous!!! I miss being able to eat spicy foods. They make my heart burn so badly! No amount of Pepcid or Mylanta help!
Cravings: All of a sudden I have a sweet tooth! One weekend morning I had to get out of bed, drive to Kroger in my pj's (t-shirt and sweats) and get a box of Fruity Pebbles. I then proceeded to eat half the box! Yummy!!!
Symptoms: Still have all the symptoms from before, but have learned how to manage it better with medicine and diet.
Best Moment this week: Every time I feel him move is the best moment!
