Bumpdate: 26 weeks

26 weeks pregnantHow Far Along: 26 weeks

Total Weight Gain/Loss: Up until this point I was feeling like I could pretty much eat whatever I felt hungry for, whenever I wanted to, and that was working fine.  I was feeling so queasy most of the time that I wasn’t hungry or overeating anyway.  But, I’m getting to the point now that I feel like I’m needing to watch what I eat more.  I seem to have picked up speed on the gaining weight business.  I’m still right on track according to my doctor, but I still want to make healthier choices, like fruit instead of ice cream.

Maternity Clothes: I’m still loving my maternity clothes.  I’m pretty excited that I haven’t had to spend a fortune or go buy a ton of new clothes.  The glorious wardrobe that Kenny’s Mom and Grandma bought for me, plus a few supplemental pieces borrowed from my sister Lisa and I am set!  A million thanks to some sweet ladies!!

Gender: It’s a precious little girl!

Movement: Kenny is able to feel her move more and more.  It seems like every time she is kicking and jabbing, once I tell him to have a feel she just settles right down.  She already knows to behave for her daddy huh!  I’m curious what her having hiccups will feel like.  I’ve heard pregnant women say things about their baby ‘having hiccups’ but either I haven’t experienced it yet, or I just don’t know what that should feel like… Oh well, time will tell.  Either way I am just in love with all her sweet movements.  I was telling my doctor, I love feeling her move!! It is so reassuring that she is still going strong.

Sleep: No sleep problems here, I just have to get horizontal on the couch and I’m out like a log.  I’ve also been listening to Lisa’s hypnobabies cd’s at night right before I fall asleep in bed.  They are so soothing and relaxing, spa like sounds and a reassuring ladies voice helping you get peaceful and relaxed.  I love them!

What I miss: A steamy hot soak in the tub.

Cravings:  Yum, a bacon cheeseburger sounds pretty great right about now.

Best Moment this week:  Kenny feeling the baby move more and more.  I was also excited (and a little overwhelmed) to learn that this is the LAST week of the second trimester!  Oh my goodness!
