26 week update

Your Baby: Month 6

Let your spouse put an ear to your belly -- he might be able to pick up baby's heartbeat (no stethoscope required). Inside the womb, the formation of tiny capillaries is giving him a healthy pink glow. He's also soaking up my antibodies, getting the immune system ready for life outside the womb. Eyes are forming, and baby will soon perfect the blink -- perfect for batting those freshly grown lashes.

About me

How far along? 26 weeks

Total weight gain/loss: 8 or 9 lbs
Maternity clothes? yes and I love them. I still wear my regular jeans on the weekend though

Stretch marks?yup....BOOOOOOOOO

Sleep: Love it!
Best moment this week: It's hard to pick one. I love seeing my belly grow, I love feeling him move
Movement:: He's a very active boy! I've started playing classical lullabies on my ipod for him to listen to. Instead of going to sleep he was kicking for over an hour. lol
Food cravings: Veggies, steak, cheese sauce, salt and vinegar chips and my new love... Bailey's flavored ice cream.

Gender: Boy

Labor Signs: nada, but I am starting to feel Braxton Hicks contractions.

Belly Button in or out? in, but it isn't as deep

What I miss: sleeping completely on my stomach. I'm not going to lie, I'm still over halfway sleeping on my belly, but it's getting a little more difficult.

What I am looking forward to: Taking little dude to the Colts play off game on Saturday!

Weekly Wisdom: Same as always, enjoy your pregnancy

Milestones: Making it another week.

Do you think I'm small for 26 weeks? I've had so many people tell me that the past 2 weeks.

  1. Ohhhhhh! I can't wait! Why, tho, did they have to use an eggplant as the example of size?
    Wiggs looks pretty in yellow.
