26 Week Photo

Not the greatest photo but you get the idea. He is growing and so am I! Even though most days I still definitely feel more chubby than pregnant. haha

Pregnancy Survey

My friend Lauren did this on her blog and I thought it was a cute idea. I've been really bad at keeping track of everything so hopefully this helps.

How far along:  27 Weeks (13 Weeks to go!)

How big is baby:  The size of a Rutabaga or about 14.5 inches

Total weight gain:  Hmmm... depends on how you look at it. haha In the beginning I lost 8 lbs and then since have gained it all back plus some. So if you are counting from my original start weight I'm only up 3 lbs from where I started, but if you count it from when I lost the 8 lbs I have gained 11 lbs. I just like to say I have only gained 3 lbs so far. :)

Maternity clothes: Most definitely! They are the most comfortable and I don't feel like the baby is being squished in them. Also baggy T-shirts and sweat pants are awesome too for around the house.

Sleep:  Hmmm.... Depends on the night. Usually I don't sleep very well. I am up almost 3-4 times a night to use the bathroom. Ugh! It's the worst. Especially with all the summer heat. Trying to sleep while it's hot is a nightmare. My poor husband has to deal with lots of fans blowing on him at night. lol

Stretch Marks? Haha Well I've always had those so nothing new here....

Best moment of the week: I feel like baby boy was going through a growth spurt for a couple days last week because he didn't move a whole lot and I was SOOOOO! EXHAUSTED all day long. But the past couple days have been amazing. He has been moving all the time! Last night I was just laying in bed and he was going crazy and jumping all over the place. He probably had the hiccups :) But I love being able to feel him. It makes me smile everytime :) Also I was able to see him move from the outside a couple days ago. It was so crazy and amazing all at the same time. And of course when Scott can feel him (when he is patient enough to hold his hand on my stomach). It just makes my heart melt to see how happy he gets. :)

Food cravings:  I guess I'm not your typical pregnant lady. I don't really crave food that often. They only thing that happens to me is Scott and I will be talking about food and then he will mention something delicious and I will want it really bad randomly. But if I had to choose food I really like right now it would be...... Blue Slurpees, Any fruit, Sugared soft candy/gummy bears or worms, dolmas, lemonade.

Food aversions:  Not really. I am finding that I'm not leaning more towards the chocolate/cake end of things when I want something sweet like I used to. I tend to still like and eat most of the foods I did before, just in different ways.

Labor Signs? Nope Thanks goodness! 
Movement: Like I said above there was a few days where he wasn't doing much, but now he is trying to break through my stomach it feels like. He jumps all over the place. As I'm typing this I'm sure he has hiccups  because he is bouncing around a ton. It's so cute! I love it and love that he is doing so well :)

Gender: It's a BOY :)

What I’m looking forward to: Being able to meet him of course! and also being able to wear normal clothes again. haha

What I miss: Sleeping through the night, sushi, not having sore feet at the end of a long day, not having an aching back, clothes that fit. But honestly none of these things are that bad and matter that much. I'm so excited to have my little guy and would do it all over again!

Next appt: July 24th (29 weeks)
