26 Weeks: Pregnancy Update

We’re into the double digits, folks. Only 90-something days till Baby F is here!

26 weeks
[taken at 26w2d]

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. =)
