26 weeks!

How big is the baby this week: Baby is the size of a head of lettuce.

Due Date:
May 8, 2012

Weight Gain: Up 3.5 lbs this week- total: 11lbs from starting!

Symptoms: Just starting to generally be uncomfortable more often. Sometimes my belly feels so full it's hard to bend over and put on socks, or even breathe really deeply. Still have heartburn occasionally but other than that, just getting fun kicks!

Cravings: Milk and guacamole.

Aversions: Nothing major.

Sleep: I usually wake up once or twice a night, but can usually go back to sleep fairly easily. I gave in and got a Snoogle- it seems to be helping, thought it is a little firmer than I was thinking it would be and it doesn't really give me that ahhhhh feeling I was hoping for. Still, it's better than my old setup.

I am loving: Maternity jeggings. Closest to wearing jammies in public I can get!

I miss: raw sushi (tuna in particular), alcoholic beverages, and sleeping in any position that's comfy.

I am looking forward to: my 27th birthday tomorrow, and hubby coming home for good tonight from his rotation!

I'm spazzing about: The months of May and June- it's going to be crazy in our house!

Best thing about this week: Had an awesome pre- birthday weekend with my hubby, and welcomed a NEW NIECE to the world last night!

Milestones: Bought our crib mattress and
got maternity pictures setup!

Movement: On the weekends we just lay in bed when we wake up and hubby puts his hand on my belly and she goes crazy. I think she's started responding to our voices a bit too.

It's a...: Girl!!!


  1. Amen to maternity jeggings...heck leggings, all of it! Happy Birthday (early) -- hope you have fun celebrating. Because this time next year, you'll either have to get a sitter, or have a toddler crawling all over you fighting you for a bit of cake ; )

  2. Many congrats, loved reading your story and look forward to following along!
