Pregnancy Update: 26 Weeks

How far along? 26 Weeks

Total weight gain: 4 lbs.

Maternity clothes: I have really resorted to tights. And it just so happens to be the perfect time of year for long sweaters, tights, and boots. Having fun with the fashion.

Stretch marks: No

Sleep: We just recently got a new mattress and I cannot get enough sleep. We also just had the “fall back” time change, so getting acclimated to that.

Best moment of this week: we went to one of Joe’s friends birthday/Halloween parties and it was fun to get to mingle with other pregnant women. Also, last week…went to one of my good friends baby showers that I grew up with. It is very reassuring / comforting to have friends in the same place in life.

Miss anything: I really don’t. I am fully embracing what is about to come with open arms. There is nothing I could be potentially missing NOW, to negate what amazing-ness is about to happen!!

Movement: She is doing Olympics in there. Really after I eat and I have noticed after I exercise, i have cramps. Which means she is growing.

Food cravings: Meat! Cheese! Anything, everything. I do get full pretty fast though.

Anything making you queasy or sick: The car, confined spaces, strong perfume and I am hyper-sensitive to cigarette smoke! Yuck!

Have you started to show yet: Yes. I am also wearing little belts to show off the bump!

Gender: Little baby girl.

Labor signs: Just lots of cramps after exercise, but nothing too crazy. Apparently that is just her growing.

Belly button in or out: Belly button is starting to come out. Not all the way there yet, but close.

Wedding rings on or off: On

Happy or moody most of the time: Very happy. 🙂

Looking forward to: getting bigger. I am still not showing that much and I want to be!!
