26 weeks

Pregnancy Highlights

How far along? 26 weeks

Baby Size: She's the size of a hothouse cucumber! In everyday terms, she is right around 14 inches and weighs about 1.75 pounds.

Total weight gain: I'm guessing around 12 pounds. It seems to fluctuate each day though! 

Maternity clothes? I purchased quite a few maternity pieces over the weekend since they were on clearance for next to nothing. I have been wearing the maternity pants over the last few days because they are much more comfortable than my other pants that I'd been wearing. My pre-maternity pants all fit but they were starting to get snug. But thankfully, I'm still wearing my regular shirts and dresses so I still feel normal!

Stretch marks? Nope but I was told to start applying cocoa butter twice a day now since my belly is growing more and more each night! Let's hope that will continue to keep them away!

Sleep:  I've been sleeping wonderfully! As soon as my head hits the pillow, I'm out like a light! Thankfully, I'm only waking up once or twice during the night, if at all, and I'm able to fall right back asleep!

Best moment this week:  Kevin and I had our first date night in forever. We went to dinner and did a little shopping afterwards. It's been a while since we've had a date night and when Harper comes along, they'll be few and far between. But for now, we're soaking up all the moments we have of just us two! Also this week, we purchased some more items for Harper's nursery and I can't wait to get those added to her room! 

Miss Anything? Nothing this week!

Movement: She moves non stop now! She used to only move around at night but now I feel her more and more throughout the day. Her kicks have become increasingly stronger and I can actually see my stomach shoot out when she kicks hard enough! It's the strangest but coolest thing ever!

Food cravings: I still am loving my sweet tea!

Anything making you queasy or sick: No

Gender: A girl {HLH}

Labor Signs:  Not yet... Let's hope those hold off for at least another 10 weeks!

Symptoms: Thankfully I haven't been battling indigestion and acid reflux as much this week! Hallelujah! However, the round ligament pain has continued but thankfully it isn't as painful as it was last week. I'm still a bit concerned about it's intensity and and how persistent it is but the doctor doesn't seem to be too concerned! 

Belly Button in or out? Still an inny!

Wedding rings on or off?  On

Mood:  Happy and Excited!

Looking forward to: Working some more on Harper's nursery over the weekend! I'm going to officially try to tackle her closet and get it organized and to my liking! She has so many clothes that she's been given that have just been laying in the floor because I haven't had time to clean out the closet in her room!
