Week 26 Bumpdate

Hello, 26 weeks! I can't believe how fast this pregnancy is going! With A, it felt like each week was an eternity. But I guess when you're pregnant and chasing around a toddler, everything just seems to move faster.

Can we first talk about the 3D ultrasound pic?! I can't believe how clear of a photo we got at 26 weeks, it's truly miraculous. And she looks so stinkin' cute, I can't wait to smooch on those beautiful baby lips. God is so, so good.

How far along? 26 weeks

Size of baby: Eggplant (9.2 inches, 2 lbs)

Weight gain: 19 pounds

Maternity clothes: Yes, but I've mostly been squeezing into leggings and wearing them below my belly

Stretch marks: None so far, thank God!

Symptoms: General fatigue, but I feel good.

Cravings: Mint chocolate chip ice cream!!!!

Gender: GIRL

Mood: Anticipation as we're approaching the 3rd trimester. I still can't believe I'm having (another) baby!

Nursery: I have some ideas! See yesterday's blog post

Movement: Definitely feeling her more now. However, my placenta is anterior so I don't feel her as much as I felt A. It basically means the placenta is in front of her, so when she kicks, it's like her kicking a pillow, which doesn't make the movements as pronounced.

Sleep: Some nights I'm in a really deep sleep, others I'm just tossing and turning.

Workouts: I started Pure Barre! More on that to come...

What I miss: Being able to bend over to put on shoes without struggling 

Belly button in or out? In

Wedding rings on or off? On

Anything making you queasy or sick? No, I'd say by appetite has returned (with a vengeance lol)

Best moment this week: Seeing her sweet face in 3D!

Labor signs? Nope

Looking forward to: More 3D ultrasounds
