26 Week Bump Date

How Far Along: 26 Weeks
(You can check out my 26 week post from when I was pregnant with Jackson here.)

Size of Baby: (According to 26 weeks: Your baby is about the size of a scallion. Your baby, now about 14 inches from head to heel and roughly 1 2/3 pounds, may be able to hear both your voice and the voices of people you talk to.

Total Weight Gain/Loss: I had a dr. appt. last Monday and so far I'm up 19 pounds. She is measuring 1 week ahead as she has been for a majority of this pregnancy.

Maternity Clothes: Yes, all maternity clothes.

Gender: Its a GIRL!!! Still nameless!!

Movement: Yes, she's moving around quite a bit now, and I love it.

Food Cravings: Still no real food cravings.

What I miss: Nothing really at the moment, other than just being able to do normal things without feeling tired or out of breath. I also miss being able to wear my wedding ring, which I haven't been able to wear for quite some time now. :-(

Sleep: Having to get up at least once a night to use the restroom and just can't seem to get comfortable sometimes.

Symptoms: A growing belly, and some sciatic nerve pain that seems to be getting worse, especially after I've cleaned the house. I'm also having a few Braxton Hicks contractions here and there and some pain under my right ribs, which I had with Jackson as well.

Best Moment this week: Getting our bathroom downstairs pretty much finished!!! I am so thankful to my dad for all his hard work. It looks great and I can't wait to share the finished product with you guys!!

What I am looking forward to: Our trip to Phoenix this week, deciding on a definite name for baby girl and getting her nursery ready. I'm also looking forward to my next Dr. appt. where we'll get to schedule my c-section and have a date to look forward to meeting our sweet Baby Girl!
