oh baby! 26 weeks!

July 3, 2012 in Oh baby!

How far along? 26 weeks + 1 day.

How big is the baby? The size of a head of lettuce! Between 13.6 and 14.8 inches long + 1.5 to 2.5 poun ds! Holy. Smokes!

Total weight gain? Last weigh in was 12 pounds, but I’m guessing I’m around 14 to 15 pounds since the last appointment.

Stretch marks? None as of yet! Woo hoo!

Sleep: It feels like I’ve been sleeping better, but honestly I haven’t. I’m waking up often because I’m feeling uncomfortable. But for whatever reason I’m feeling OK about it. Maybe I’m just accepting of the fact that my sleep is not going to be the same 🙂

Movement: The kicks are becoming much more intense. None have been ‘hurting,’ per se. But they have definitely been much more intense. Soon Chad is going to be able to see the kicks!

Food cravings: Dairy Queen blizzards. Like, often. I don’t know why I’ve been craving weird blizzards though. Like, I’ll go in and say “Could I have a blizzard with vanilla ice cream and just cherry cone dip?” And the kid behind the counter always smirks and hesitates and says “um, ok?” De-licious. Don’t judge. Oh. And root beer, cheese and beef. Still.

Food aversions: Just chicken still.

What I miss: Not feeling overwhelmed. I can’t believe that I’m already 26 weeks. I’m not at all ready. Like, at all. I’m starting to panic a bit. Blah. I’m not going to get any sleep tonight if I keep thinking about it.

Milestones: My belly feels hard. Like, it’s no longer flabby at all! And it’s a fantastic feeling 🙂 I keep going up to Chad topless {TMI? Ha!} and saying “Feel how hard it is!!” to which, my extremely mature husband replies, “That’s what she said!”

Thank you again for being so honest about your pregnancy 🙂 I have a feeling that when you have this baby you’ll still be just as honest!

Ha! The topless part made me laugh 🙂 Only because I’ll do the same thing to my husband!

You look great!
