26 Week Update

It's that time again...time for another pregnancy update! I'm 26 weeks (plus one day, if we want to get technical) along and still feeling great. Here's my update!

How far along: 26 weeks 

Size of baby: About the length of an English cucumber (14 inches)  and weighs about 1.75 pound! 

Total weight gain/loss: Lost 10 pounds in the first trimester and now have gained 6.5 of those pounds back. 

Sleep: Sleeping pretty well. Getting up 1-2 times per night to go to the restroom. 

Best moment of the week: As I was typing this post, the painting and rug were just delivered. So, clearly, I stopped what I was doing, unpackaged them and put them in her room. They look so great...I can't wait to post pictures! 

Movement: Lots and lots. Last week, while in a meeting, I could see her moving through my shirt. It was so neat! 

Food cravings: Still not having any really strong cravings, but smoothies, greek yogurt with pumpkin and honey and granola bars have been sounding good lately. 

Gender: Girl!

Labor signs: N/A

Belly button in or out: In

What I miss: I would love to have a mimosa! 

What I'm looking forward to: Our 3D ultrasound next week. Unfortunately, along with that comes my gestational diabetes test. Let's hope it goes well!

Milestones: Less than 100 days to go (97 to be exact). Yes, we keep a countdown on the fridge. 

Please excuse the photo...this one was taken after work as opposed to before work. Apparently, I am a morning person, as those photos have been much more presentable. It looks like Oliver had to sneak in there, too. :)
