How far along?: 26 weeks! Only 14 left to go. It’s starting to get more real now.
Maternity clothes: Having fun in my pregnant clothes! Loving the belly this week, especially.
Stretch marks: Still none spotted yet, thank God!
Sleep: Milestone! Wednesday I was woken up a few minutes early by a roundhouse kick to the side of my stomach. Baby woke me up from a dead sleep for the first time. It was kind of cute! And the little guy/gal hasn’t stopped moving since. Although, I do have to say, I think baby is on the same schedule of waking and sleeping as mom for now. Hopefully that lasts for a while.
Best moment this week: Mom got here at 11:15 today! We ran a couple of errands and then went to an Aveda salon and got mani/pedi’s. Mom’s treat! So nice.
Worst Moment this week: Not really a bad one this week. Although I did have to sit in the blazing hot sun yesterday at a work event. Ah well.
Movement: Like I said under the sleep category, a TON of movement in the last couple of days. I’m surprised baby hasn’t worn him/her self out yet.
Food cravings/aversions: Plain M&M’s are a favorite. Also LOVING watermelon and other fruits right now. LOVING.
Belly Button in or out?: Definitely in, but we’re getting flatter by the week.
What I miss: More sleep. Haha!
What I am looking forward to: Baby shower tomorrow! I can’t wait. All the gals from church are invited. (If you are a gal from church and you’re reading this, you should have gotten an invite, but we all know how the Denver mail system is, so if you didn’t, please come!!) And J has a double-header softball game on Sunday that we’ll take mom to. That will be really fun!
Milestones: Eyes are opening this week!! That is so cool! So baby can sense light even more now. I’m told I can shine a flashlight on my tum tum and baby will respond. I think that’s kinda mean though. I wouldn’t like a bright light in my eyes if I were in the womb.
Symptoms: Lots of moving this week! And I’m getting some energy back, thank the Lord. I just started taking a whole-food iron supplement and I think that’s what did the trick. Yay for more energy!
Normally this would be my week to post belly pics, but I think I may wait till the next even-numbered week. But I will try to take some pics at the baby shower and get them up here next week.
Love to you all!!
