How far along? 26 weeks
Total weight gain/loss? 15 pounds total (2 pounds this week)
How big is baby? Size of lettuce. The Bump says the baby could be interfering with my sleep, messing with your brain (forgetfulness), and giving me a stress headache! The last two are true for me. I sleep fine once I actually get into bed. It said I could also be experiencing some swelling. I’m so glad I read that because I noticed my ankles are swelling just slightly. I was freaking out until I read this. Also said eyelashes are formed. And that I could start to feel Braxton Hicks contractions…whoa! Nothing like that yet for me. I did get them with B so I know what they feel like, but they were much later.
Stretch marks? No.
Sleep? The same as last week.
Fitness? No and I really need to. Got my first leg cramp yesterday. And out of breath after going up a flight of stairs.
Best moment this week? Is it bad that I’m struggling to answer this? I love seeing him move around! I love him!
Miss anything? Energy, smaller boobs, no heartburn.
Food cravings? Sugar.
Anything making you queasy or sick? I think sugar is too much for me right now, which doesn’t help that I want it…stomach feels a bit full and sick after eating too much.
Current Symptoms? Heartburn and let’s just say my body is really getting ready to feed baby (without getting TMI).
Belly button in or out? I think I should officially say it’s more outward, especially after a meal.
Wedding rings on or off? Off…I can still wear them, but since I had a little bit of swelling I decided to take them off (last time they got stuck).
I really feel pregnant. I have very little energy. I feel about a month ahead of where I really am. And my heart burn happens every night! I started swelling this week just a tad…yes, this week. Holy moly! I about freaked out until I read what was going on this week in pregnancy (see below). Let me just say I’m a huge sweller at the end of pregnancy (at least I was with B). I really fear how big I will get…just think umpa lumpa from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory…that was me! I really think this baby is coming early! For some reason, June 8 and June 18 pop into my head (due date is June 29). We will see. Last time, I predicted the date exactly, so we’ll see if I can do it again.
I posted this picture on Instagram – “My 2 boys! One on left is 28 months. One on right is 26 weeks! They both are wild, they both make me really tired, and they both have my heart! #boymom
And here I am at 26 weeks with B:
