26 Weeks!!

26 Weeks!!
Last week of second trimester...insert mini-freakout ::here::

How far along are you? 
26 Weeks

Total weight gain: 
More than I wanted to gain, but not too much  

How big is baby?:
What to Expect says an English Cucumber (15 inches head to toe) and 2.2 pounds!
Maternity clothes
always...I'm about to buy a few maxi dresses for the summer

Stretch marks?:  
On my hiney!!  I was NOT a happy camper to find those!  
Still applying Palmers religiously
But I've started getting spider veins on my belly?!  
I guess because I'm so white and just don't tan

Eh, some days are great, others not so much.  Depends on how he's laying.

Best moment this week?:
feeling him move even more.  The past 3 or so days he's been kicking up a storm for 30 minutes or so, then sleeps for an hour or two and starts up again.  


Food cravings?:
Starting to not have many, if least nothing recurring

Food aversions?:
Not too bad, kind of depends on the day

Labor signs?: 
NO!  Stay put Baby!

Belly button in or out?: 
In, but getting less deep.  My belly button is normally REALLY deep, but not so much.  For the first time in my life, I can see the bottom of my belly button.  LOL

What I miss: 
not being tired all the time!  
Once I'm awake for 4 hours, I'm ready to crawl back in to bed

What I'm looking forward to: 
getting our place so I can set up Pierce's nursery

What I'm not looking forward to: 
Summer, I'm already hot! 
We've already hit 91 degrees!
Another round of pain from the hydronephrosis

Feeling him kick above my belly button...maybe he's finally turning vertical and will stop snuggling my kidneys like they're his first teddy bears!


  1. LOVE LOVE LOVE!! You look great mama! Pierce will be here so SOON!! YAY!!

  2. You're gorgeous!! Can't wait to see the little peanut.

  3. You look beautiful!!!! Congrats on the 3rd trimester!
