26 Weeks

How far along are you? 26 weeks

Cravings: Soft served ice cream and cheesecake…wow I’m SO healthy. I haven't had ice cream yet, but I made a cheesecake and it's become a nightly treat. Also cheese...I have a feeling this little girl is going to love dairy.  I have been enjoying wraps lately. I prefer them over sandwiches. 

Weight Gain: +18 lbs…that’s what I was at at my last appointment. So until I go again I won’t know. 

“Your belly is defiantly higher, looking like where a girl should be.” - my one sis-in-law who thought I carried to low to be a girl at first...those old wives tales..
“My goodness, you’re really popping out there!” - Literally almost everyone likes to say that. As if I didn’t know this.
"I see your belly button starting to stick out there" - my mom-in-law

Favorite moment this week: Caleb finally witnissed one of her bigger kicks! It caught him off guard because he was in the middle of talking. And he just stopped almost in shock. Also, I’m pretty sure I’m feeling her hiccup! They just feel like a small little heartbeat and it happens for a few minutes. And no, it’s not my heartbeat because I checked and it doesn’t match my pulse. 

Fears: The reality of labor hits me and I do start to feel scared. But I’ve also been doing a lot of research on all natural births and how to stay calm. I’ve just started researching so the fear is still there. 

General mood: Anti-social some days. Other days I’m a pretty happy person.

Sleep: I hate this one…I just can’t seem to be able to sleep well. 

Things I was surprised by: How little of an appetite I still have. Unless you put something sweet in front of me. 

Things I am most looking forward to: Being done taking medicine…the doctors found that I have an infection and taking antibiotics goes against what I want…but if it doesn’t get treated it could spread to the baby. So I’m praying it goes away and I don't have to take any more.

What I think is really cool and crazy: How amazing it is to watch my belly grow. Like our bodies are built for this and it’s pretty surreal to see it happening. 

Food Aversions: Still meat. I was able to stomach a burger the other day…but I really rather not have one again. I'm really not a fan of avocado still...I tried guacamole the other day...ehh is all I can say to that one. Which is super sad because that used to be my favorite.

Maternity Clothes: A few shirts, and two dresses. Crazy thing…I went shopping the other day for maternity shorts and pants, none fit me..still! The legs are just to baggy. So I went home and tried on my regular jeans, and they still fit me. A little tight but they defiantly went up. I think it’s crazy, but I don’t really know where this weight I’m gaining is going. 

Gender: Little Princess!
