Pregnant with Baby {Weeek 26}

Today marks the week 26 mark! Double digit countdown! 


Here are some official details and updates for week 26!

  • How far along?: 26 weeks (due date got bumped up a few days)
  • Baby is the size of a: Zucchini!
  • Total weight gain/loss: +18 pounds
  • The Bump: Definitely there. I'm huge!
  • Symptoms: Just little colds almost every week.
  • Food Cravings: U Swirl Frozen Yogurt. All. The. Time. I went through a baked potato phase like a week ago.
  • Anything Making Me Queasy or Sick: Nope.
  • Sleep:  Sleep is fine, its the getting comfortable part that's hard! I've tried the pillow between the legs, and that does nothing for me. Having a pillow under my stomach, now that's heaven.
  • What I miss: Being able to goof around with my husband as much as we used to! 
  • Weddings Rings On or Off: Depends on the day... Sometimes my hands get just swollen enough to where it's uncomfortable.
  • Any Names Picked Out Yet: Yes!!! Waiting for gender reveal to tell though ;) 
  • Movement: Tons of movement! I swear little bumpkin is kick boxing or playing soccer or both! It's to the point now where you can look at my stomach and see the movement. Pretty darn cool :]
  • Maternity Clothes: None officially!! I got by on my pre-preggo jeans til about a week ago, then I bought a new pair of non-maternity jeans that were on sale. I couldn't help myself! They're my official mom jeans - but they're amazing! 
  • Labor Signs: I've had Braxton Hicks a few times, but that's all. 
  • What I’m excited about/looking forward to: I'm so excited to have this precious baby finally in my arms! I was telling hubby last night (preggo rant from back aches lol) how I just wanted this pregnancy to be over and wanted our little bundle with us. I'm also excited to start decorating our room!! Since we only have a 1 bedroom apt, we'll be sharing a room. So that means when I decorate the baby's half, half of our bedroom will be all pretty! 

I know a lot of you are DYING to know the gender, but you'll have to wait just another week or two! At least until after Easter. We're going to be telling family first, then we'll announce it to everyone else. Thanks for being so patient! <3

I may have used the fact ideas from here...
