26 weeks

How far along? Today- 26 weeks +2 days 

Baby is the size of a: Papaya 

Total weight gain: About 12 lbs

Sleep: I had one bad night a few days ago, but I think it was mainly because of my nose being stopped up. Last night I did notice that switching from side to side is getting a little more difficult. 

Movement? Oh yes, this girl is an active one! Her kicks are super hard lately too. She doesn't like to show off to others though. As soon as anyone puts their hand on my belly, she stops. They move their hand, she kicks again!

Cravings: I might as well not include this one anymore, because still none!

Miss anything? Being able to easily get up off the ground and from squatting. Hah.

Symptoms: Does peeing excessively count as a symptom? 

Nursery: I picked up some stuff for her collage wall at Hobby Lobby!

Best Moment This Week: Well people are finally noticing and acknowledging that I'm pregnant! A lady in the checkout lane at HobLob saw the stuff in my buggy and said, "well I guess you're having a little girl!" Then at the gas station, the cashier (she's Indian and doesn't speak perfect English) said "you pregnant?" "first baby?" "you married?" "ooh you have good life!" Then she smiled at me. :)

24/25 weeks

How far along? Today- 25 weeks +4 days 

Baby is the size of a(n): 24 weeks- egg plant, 25 weeks papaya 

Total weight gain: 24 weeks-9 lbs, 25- 12 lbs? I ate good when I was on vaca in Disney World, ok!! Haha

Sleep: Not too bad actually! I was worried about not having my snoogle pillow while on vacation, but I did totally fine without it!

Movement? Oh yes! Daddy FINALLY felt her kick for the first time on 9/12. She is most active when I go to bed and lay on my left side. That's actually when Larry first got to feel her kick. He said that it felt like a hard little punch. Maybe she'll be strong like him rather than weak like me.

Cravings: Crazy, but still none. 

Miss anything? A bra that fits...

Symptoms: Honestly, none! I really feel great lately. If baby girl wasn't so active and my belly weren't so big, I may be worried!

Nursery: Not really any progress in the last 2 weeks. I did buy this cute little pillow today at Target though. 

Best Moment This Week: My trip to Disney World of course! 

At 25 weeks, I have suddenly "popped!"

22 weeks


How far along? 22 weeks + 2 days

Baby is the size of an: Eggplant.

Total weight gain: I'm thinking about 8-9 lbs possibly.

Sleep: Some nights better than other. Still only waking up to pee once a night. Oh please let it stay that way!

Movement? Well baby girl learned a new trick this week- she enjoys practicing her tap dancing on mommy's bladder. The other night she kicked it so hard that I literally almost peed on myself in bed! Daddy still isn't able to feel her from the outside yet. Hopefully soon though!

Cravings: None. But I sure do love ice cream! Ok, I admit it.. I've always loved ice cream. 

Miss anything? Caffeine! They say 1 cup per day is fine. I usually drink 1 cup of half-caf coffee in the morning but there are some days where I could use regular coffee all day at work!!

Symptoms: Lower back pain started a few weeks ago. Some days it's worse than others. I'm still feeling great though! I have so much energy. I swear the second trimester gives you wings!

Nursery: Well, this weekend I realized that we only have 4 months until our sweet baby girl is here and yet so so much to do. While I'm anxious to meet her, I just have a lot to get done before she's here! Sunday I started cleaning out her closet. Up until now it's just been used as a junk extra closet. Poor Larry has a lot of stuff to move up to the attic now- oops!

Best Moment This Week: Just constantly being reminded by her little kicks of the blessing that God placed inside of me and she was made just for us. I can't wait to meet her and hold her in my arms. I can't wait to kiss her and cuddle her all the time.
