VERY belated (well, a week). Week 26 was a bit of a whirlwind with guests, travel, and general un-connectedness. Worry not, we are back with lots to catch up on. First, I will go back to week 26...
How Far Along: 26 weeks.
Size of Baby: About 13.5" and 1.5 lbs.
Total Weight Gain/Loss: 12 lbs. Doctor says we are right on track.
Maternity Clothes: Yep. Same old, same old.
Movement: The little kicks are still there but we have added some major rocking and rolling to the mix!
Symptoms: Swollen extremities if I am on my feet too long (as in all day).
What I Miss: Nothing really new here. Everything is a-ok.
Girl or Boy: Boy!
Baby name hint: Week 26: His name does not start with an "S".
Belly button In or Out: Flat.
Stretch Marks: Nope.
Cravings: All true cravings have completely subsided. Still averse to certain meats but it is improving slightly.
Best Moment This Week: Discovering compression socks. These things are a LIFE SAVER. They make some not so sexy full leg versions but I opted for the knee high, endurance athlete variety. They seriously make my legs feel brand new and take the swelling out.
|I loathe these pictures now. Coming up next week (aka, in 5 minutes)...scariest one yet!|
