26 Weeks, Or, The Last Hurrah of Trimester 2.
How Far along: 26 weeks!
Baby size: 14" and almost 2 pounds. According to the Bump, that's about the size of a head of lettuce. Um. What? Who has ever seen a 2 pound head of lettuce? That's insane!
Total weight gain: 10ish
Maternity clothes: yep
Sleep: I like sleep. Sleep is lovely. Except when heartburn happens.
Best Moment this week: More baby wiggles. Hmm. Otherwise...Making progress on the house. I also finished reading/listening to the audiobook for The Guild of the Cowry Catchers Complete Series, which is without a doubt one of my absolute favorite series EVER.
Movement: Yep. Lots and lots. But only when she's awake. She's not doing anything weird like her siblings did (yet), so that's good. She likes to stick her butt out.
Labor signs: N/A, BH contractions a few times a day.
Belly button: In, but doing weird things so it looks like a tiny volcano sometimes.
Cravings: Pumpkin spice lattes (preferably homemade, but I've discovered that 1 pump of syrup in a Tall one at Sbux is actually pretty close to perfect), pumpkin bread/cookies (really need to make them!), meatball sandwiches. Sushi, of course. :-) No pica, which is good. I guess it means I'm not super anemic, just still borderline.
Aversions: Nothing new.
What I miss: Sleeping without waking up to pee at night, not having heartburn if I eat too close to bedtime. Being able to eat a big meal.
Stretch Marks: No new ones :-)
What is different this time around: Everything, pretty much. Except I think my belly button did this with Dee too.
What I am looking forward to this week: More house progress, hopefully finish packing more. Time is ticking to get done with it! We want to list the house in the 1st weekend of Oct, so... Yikes!
