{26 weeks}

26 weeks
Size of baby: cucumber (approx. 14" and 1.75 lbs.)

Total Weight Gain: +17.5
Continuing symptoms: Round ligament pain, slight nose congestion, back ache if I stand too long, hard belly in morning
New symptoms this week: I was just telling a friend how great I feel with very few symptoms, aches, or pains! However, the very night I said that, I experienced some acid reflux (not painful...just nasty) and could NOT get comfortable in bed. And as I rolled over I felt like it was more difficult and my belly felt heavier. Maybe it was just a fluke or the start of the soon-to-come third trimester discomforts?
Maternity Clothes: Still feeling cute-pregnant :)

Sleep: I slept really, really well except for the last night of this week mentioned above.
What I'm Eating: Appetite has been pretty normal this week.
Cravings: None, felt like a normal week!
Movement: He is continuing to be an active boy in there and I can't help but tell him I love him when he starts to to move. I am continuing to feel kicks and punches, but I have also felt more rolling movements that are fun.

Special pregnancy moments: A number of friends have gotten to feel our boy move! My entire small group of high school girls took turns feeling him when we were at camp, and my friend K felt him move at homegroup. Also both of my in-laws have felt a kick! It's so fun to share the experience with others and see their faces light up when they feel him kick. :)

Also, we (mostly) finished the nursery this week and I love it!! It's definitely my favorite room in the house and I go in there all the time just because I love it. The only thing we have to do is hang the ceiling fan. Pictures to come soon, although I might wait until the ceiling fan is up so they are the "real" complete nursery pictures.

Less than 100 days until  my due date!

Hope the acid reflux gets better for you. Isn't it amazing to feel baby moving inside you?! Ahh, I miss it.

You look great! I'd say you're glowing, but I can't see your face, so I'll say your arms are glowing!

Have a great weekend!! said...

You look great! I hope the reflux eases up or stops. I had it my 1st and 3rd trimesters when I was pregnant with Caroline :)
