Baby Update: Weeks 25 & 26

IMAG0290 Week 25

IMAG0305 Week 26 (please excuse the blurry picture)

How far along? I hit 26 weeks yesterday

Baby's size? I think he is the size of an eggplant. He weighs about 1 and 3/4 pounds.

Weight Gain? I am fluctuating between 17 and 18 pounds.

Maternity clothes? I am still wearing a lot of non-maternity shirts but all my bottoms are maternity.

Stretch marks? none yet

Belly button in or out? It is starting to get a little shallow but no where near out.

Sleep? I have my good nights and bad nights but it’s not too bad.

Foods I am loving? All the sudden I have been craving chicken. Also tons of fruit and cereals. 

Foods I am hating? Nothing really.

Best moment this week? Seeing my sisters excitement when she got to feel Hudson move for the first time.

Movement? All the time

Symptoms? I am still dealing with heart burn some but I have been able to cut my Zofran to one pill every other day. After a long road-tirp to Bako my hip has been killing me (see my last post).

Gender? Hudson (a boy)

What I miss? Laying/sleeping on my back. Diet coke and coffee (though I do have the occasional one). My old body. Enough said.

What I'm looking forward to? My first baby shower on Sunday :)

Milestone: I don’t really feel like much has changed from last update.

Emotions: Again I am so excited for Hudson to get here! I am starting to freak out a little about the giving birth part and after he comes but overall I am feeling pretty good. Being able to stay active has helped me a lot but this week I have been benched due to hip issues so that makes it harder. I think I am getting to the point where I have to re-think what I physically can and can’t do..change things up a bit :)
