Bumpdate 26 weeks


Baby is a-growing! I swear I have gotten exponentially bigger in the past week.

How Far Along: 26 weeks

Total Weight Gain/Loss: I weighed the other day on my home scale and was up several pounds since the time I weighed before. It will be interesting to see when I go to the doctor.

Gender: It’s a girl!

Movement: I think she has an arm or leg under my ribs. It doesn’t hurt, but I can feel a lot of pressure there sometimes.

Sleep: This week was fine.

Maternity Clothes: I am still managing with dresses and the Bella band, but I am pretty sure the charade is up and I will be needing to get some maternity wear. My sister let me borrow a lot of her maternity items, so I need to go through those and see what works for me.

Symptoms: I am waking up in the middle of the night with charlie horses in my leg. Wowzers.

Aversions: Fried food still.

Cravings: I am dying for a chocolate chip cookie cake slice. Random, I know. Also, still wanting tart things like key lime pie and lemony anything. Sadly, I haven’t partaken in either.

Best Moment this week: We are beginning to make progress on Emmy’s room. My mom and I worked on her bookcase (pics tomorrow), Tommy and I chose a glider for her room, and I am super close to picking out her bedding, which means painting (and progress) can begin!


  1. yikes....charlie horses were the worst symptom for me...they were terrible! You looks so freaking adorable and tiny...!

    Can't wait to hear nursery details...I am sure I will be jealous!

    Oh, and give that sweet dog of yours a big hug from me ;0)

  2. You (and Emmy) have really grown this week!! You look adorable, and I can't wait to see the progress on the nursery!
    Love, Aunt Angie

  3. Madison grew a ton these last 2 weeks too!
    I pulled a key lime yogurt out of my fridge for breakfast this morning and it made me think of you. = )
    Can't wait to see what you do with the nursery!

  4. You might be the tiniest and cutest prego I've ever seen. Love that cute bump!

  5. Adorable!! I can tell she has been growing! You look great!

  6. Ahhhhh... that bump is too cute! Cannot wait to hear about the nursery! And charlie horses... OUCH! I remember getting those too!

  7. Oh, you look adorable! My doc told me to take Tums for Charlie horses because they are full of calcium, and a lot of times a lack of calcium is causing the Charlie horses. Or drink milk!

  8. Seriously, you are the cutest.pregnant.girl. ever!! Really, it is not possibly for your belly to be any more precious. I can't wait to see your little bump in person and talk awkwardly at it; maybe sing her a little song. So now you have been warned.
