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!
