We’re into the double digits, folks. Only 90-something days till Baby F is here!
How far along? 26 weeks and 5 days!
Baby is the size of a … Head of lettuce! Baby is somewhere between 13.6 inches to 14.8 inches and weighs between 1.5 to 2.5 pounds.
How has (s)he changed this week? Baby’s skin has pigment now – thanks to the production of melanin – and his/her eyelashes have grown in too!
So far, I’ve gained … 4.5 pounds in the last two weeks, 28.5 pounds total. Oy.
Sleep has been … Just fine. Lots of bathroom breaks in the middle of the night.
I feel … Tired from staying up late too many nights to watch the Bruins! But feeling good besides that.
I miss … Sushi!
Craving … A cupcake
Keep me away from … Nada!
Symptoms? Slight back pain, frequent bathroom breaks, itchy belly
Gender? Boy! Or girl. Who knows!
Maternity clothes? Most clothes at this point except for a few bigger tops
Movement? It’s pretty constant at this point. =)
Exercise? Walking and nightly stretching
Healthy eats? Cantaloupe, salads, bananas, yogurt, and overnight oats
Splurges? Ice cream! Temps are getting hot around here. =)
Wedding rings on or off? Still on
My best moment was … Hearing the peanut’s healthy, strong heartbeat at our 26 week appointment!
Looking forward to … A couple of hours at the beach with Rich! Baby and Mama need some vitamin D. =)
