26 weeks (Sept 30th)

Sorry I have been MIA for a while! I have had so many photo sessions and life is starting to finally slow down! :) I am starting where I left off 


How far along: 26 weeks 

Total weight gain: 19 lbs

Maternity clothes:  I have been wearing the belly band since I was about 10 weeks. I am definitely in maternity pants, and have a couple maternity tops, but other than that i have found a few shirts that are long enough! :) I also bought my first nursing bra last week! I was excited!

Best moment of the week: I just love feeling her move and kick!

Food cravings: none this week

Food aversions: nothing

boobs sore- still there, way less prevelant though- however my nips are super sensitive, its annoying! LOL
cramps- that could be growing pains, round ligament pain, etc. My midwife wasn't concerned with it. And that is all that matters.
tiredness-I get tired easily, but thats about it.
irritability- back to normal. :)
acne- none!
bloat- no
burning muscle pain in upper abdomen- nope!

Movement: I am feeling a lot more rolls and also felt her have hiccups!

Gender: Girl! 

What I’m looking forward to: hitting the 3rd trimester!  

What I miss: bending over with ease. :)

Next appt: Oct 24th!

How big is baby: 
The network of nerves in your baby's ears is better developed and more sensitive than before. He may now be able to hear both your voice and your partner's as you chat with each other. He's inhaling and exhaling small amounts of amniotic fluid, which is essential for the development of his lungs. These so-called breathing movements are also good practice for when he's born and takes that first gulp of air. And he's continuing to put on baby fat. He now weighs about a pound and two-thirds and measures 14 inches (an English hothouse cucumber) from head to heel. If you're having a boy, his testicles are beginning to descend into his scrotum — a trip that will take about two to three days
