pregnancy update - week 26.

How far along?: 26 weeks (actually 27 weeks along as I do these a week behind)

Baby is the size of: Head of lettuce, length of a green onion

Maternity Clothes?: Yup!  I've moved all of my non-maternity clothing to the back of my closet now.  I have to say, it's been quite nice to just be working with a smaller amount of clothing.  The choices are way easier in the morning - lol!

Symptoms: Back pain, some leg cramps, general comfortableness, general aches and pains.  I'm also finding it increasingly more difficult to bend down to put my shoes on, get up from the couch and I, unfortunately, think I'm starting the pregnancy "waddle". I also have had a little bit of right hip pain too.

Sleep: If I'm being honest, it hasn't been the greatest this week sleep-wise.  I have been extremely uncomfortable in the night and am having a hard time sleeping.  Baby boy also seems to think it's party time in the middle of the night too!

Best moment(s) this week:

1) Going to our 26 week doctors appointment and finding out that I'm progressing well and my results came back negative for gestational diabetes (yay!). It also never gets old hearing the little babes heartbeat!

2) Starting our prenatal classes. It was great being in a room of couples entering the very same stage that we're starting.  I'm really looking forward to the next five weeks of classes.

Worst moment this week: Probably just being uncomfortable at night.

Have you told family and friends yet?: Everybody knows!

Miss anything?: Sleeping on my tummy - I'm just so darn uncomfortable at night. 

Movement: OMG - I feel movement all the time!  And especially in the evening and middle of the night.  One night I literally was awake off and on all night because he was wiggling, kicking and squirming all night.  Then I thought for sure he'd settle down during the day (since he'd been up all night - lol!) but, nope, he just continued his party all day.  I also tend to feel him at work when I'm sitting still.

Food cravings: Ice cream, bananas, bagels with cream cheese. I don't seem to have those "gotta have that now" pregnancy cravings though.

Anything make you queasy or sick?: Nope - not this week.

Have you started to show? Haha - yes. No denying it now.

Gender: Boy!

Belly button in or out?: In but super shallow

Wedding rings on or off?: On

Happy or moody most of the time?: Happy but a bit emotional.

Looking forward to: Getting to see him again as we are having another ultrasound this week.  I'm measuring a little big so they just want to be sure my dates are correct.

 xo, Megan
