How far along? 26 Weeks!
How big is baby? She’s about 14″ long from head to toe and weighs approximately 1.6lbs, according to BabyCentre.ca.
Total weight gain/loss: At my doctor’s appointment on Thursday last week I had gained another 2lbs. Yay?
Maternity Clothes? I’m still milking what I have for regular shirts as much as I can, but it’s starting to get hard. A lot of them just aren’t long enough and they “tent” out at the bottom, or don’t cover my bump so you see the awesome band of my maternity pants.
Stretch marks? None! I’m super stoked on this.
Sleep: It comes and goes. I have a really hard time getting comfortable. Even when I finally do and wake up in the morning, my body just aches. I’ve made a promise to myself that the first thing I’m going to do once Baby is born is sleep on my stomach. That’s the only way I’ve ever been comfortable sleeping and I miss it!
Movement: So much, it’s ridiculous. Is it wrong that I sometimes just want her to stop moving around so much? It gets downright uncomfortable! And yes, I know … it’s only going to get worse as she gets bigger!
Food cravings: This and that, and of course, ice cream! I actually need to start being careful about what I shove in my mouth for food. I have my gestational diabetes test next week and I’ll be sad if I fail. No ice cream? Boo!
What I miss: A lot of things! Being comfortable, being able to go for a walk without having to feel like I have to pee instantly, RAW sushi! *sigh*
What I am looking forward to: Right now, meeting Baby. I still can’t believe I’m growing a little human inside me, and I can’t wait to meet her in a few months!
Milestones: Kyle feeling Baby “fight” back! Sometimes I can feel a little limb pressing against me, so I’ll lightly press back and she’ll throw an elbow or a knee. This is a regular occurrence for me, but when Kyle felt it for the first time he was taken aback just a little bit! The doctor assured him that it didn’t hurt the baby.
