I never got around to taking a photo last week, so we're just combining weeks twenty-five and twenty-six, if that's alright with you guys. :)
(holy cow, y'all... she has GROWN since my last picture!)
How far along? Twenty-six weeks.
Baby is the size of... an English cucumber.
Best moment this week? Watching Micah work tirelessly to get the house ready for Grace's arrival and meeting with my besties to start planning the shower. It's all coming at me so fast!
Miss anything? Being able to walk around and run errands without being worn out. Putting on this baby weight (and boy have I put on some weight...) makes me feel like I felt before I lost it all, and I remember how tired I was all the time. I'm even more determined than ever to get back on the plan hardcore once she arrives.
Movement? All the time. Again, I'm still trying to discern any sort of a pattern to her movement, but I'm not very observant, so I haven't yet figured out when she's most active.
Sleep? Still sleeping fabulously, thankfully. I'm just waiting for the sleepless nights to hit.
Food cravings? I've actually had a taste for Mexican food the last couple of weeks, which is funny considering that I couldn't even stand the thought of Mexican food in the first trimester.
What makes you queasy/sick? Nothing. Hallelujah!
Morning sickness? No nausea in the past week or so.
Other symptoms? Heartburn nearly every night. Thank the Lord for Zantac 75. Last week I had incredibly intense tightness and pain in my lower abdomen... right where she's sitting. It was a little scary, but she contined to stay active, and I didn't have any other symptoms, so I figured it was ligament pain. I finally called my doctor's office on the fourth day of constant, sharp pain, and she confirmed that it was just ligament pain and that I didn't need to worry. Thankfully I started feeling better the next day. I've also had some swelling in my feet and ankles. And my boobs are getting enormous.
Gender? It's a GIRL!
Looking forward to... continuing to finish up the nursery and going to register sometime soon! (I'll be doing a registry must-haves post in the next day or two so you guys can tell me all the things you didn't know you needed... until you did. :))
