26 Weeks

26 Weeks


Total Weight Gain:  14 lbs, eek this was a big week for me!

Maternity Clothes?  It's amazing that I can actually survive with just one pair of maternity jeans and lots of sweats!  Still waiting to break out the sundresses...might be another month though!

Wedding Rings On or Off? On!  And they are staying on, no matter what!

Stretch Marks?  Absolutely not!

Sleep?  I feel as though I'm tossing & turning much more at night.  However, I'm making up for it with the cat naps that have become a part of my daily routine!

Best Moment This Week:  Getting started on the nursery, more details below....

Miss Anything?  Running!!!  It has been so hard for me to deal with the fact that I will not be running for the next 3 or so months. 

Movement?  I never used to feel Liam move while I was exercising (they say the movements can "lull" the baby to sleep), but those days are gone.  He is constantly kicking when I'm in the pool.  He's also becoming more & more active while I'm sleeping and will definitely let me know if he does not like a certain position that I'm in.

Food Cravings:  Breakfast is still my favorite meal of the day and usually consists of about three courses.  Grape laffy taffy is still making a frequent appearance, but the stash at my grocery store is slowly diminishing again... 

Food Aversions:  Not this week, everything sounds delicious!  And I have a huge appetite to go with it.

Symptoms:  I went to Pike Place Market this week, but I had to park a few blocks up the hill from it.  On my walk back to the car some Braxton Hicks really kicked in.  Seriously? From a walk up the hill?  I feel extremely pregnant now.  Sometimes I don't even recognize my own body in the mirror.

Staying Active?  Yep, still active even though I can't run.  I've been in the pool this week swimming laps.  Boy, were my arms burning after the first couple days.  I'm learning to really enjoy this activity as a substitute for my previous workouts.

Belly Button:  "In."

Happy or Moody?  Pretty darn happy!

Nursery Progress:  After many hours spent gathering ideas (especially from Project Nursery), we finally made some decisions on the nursery this week!  My wonderful husband painted horizontal stripes using white & Benjamin Moore thundercloud gray.  It looks amazing, and I'm so happy with how it turned out!  It goes great in our modern house!  Now we can begin to choose some accent colors to brighten up the room.  Here's a sneak peak of the nursery:



Looking Forward to:  More work on the nursery!  Now that it's painted, I might finally be able to choose some bedding!
