Baby is the size of a: cucumber? aka Just shy of 16 inches long! Weighs in around 3lbs!
The Bump: Bump? More like a mountain. But makes for a great hill for Levi's trucks, apparently!
Symptoms: Just feeling huge!
Food Cravings: I've reached the point where I have to eat a lot of small meals, otherwise I get indigestion and a little acid reflux. In fact the other night the pain got so bad, I started wondering if there's something possibly going on with my gallbladder!? Needless to say, stomach's a little squished these days!
Anything Making Me Queasy or Sick: Nope!
Sleep: I still toss and turn, but I'm usually tired enough to fall back asleep right away
What I miss: Having energy! There's so much I want to do, especially with this nice weather, but I wear out quickly.
Weddings Rings On or Off: On
Any Names Picked Out Yet: I think we've made progress!!
Movement: I have a little acrobat in my belly :)
Maternity Clothes: They're a saving grace, but...I don't know. I'm just not enjoying them like I did with my first pregnancy. Although recently I got a few maxi dresses and skirts and those have been wonderful!
Labor Signs: The never ending Braxton Hicks
Best Moment of the Week: We bought a mini van :) I can't believe we grew up so fast! I'll miss driving my sporty little car but I'm so happy with the van we chose and am excited to make new memories in it, driving around as a family of four.
What I’m excited about/looking forward to: Brett's done with school this week! It will be so nice to have him home. Then this weekend, my sweet Levi turns 2!! I'm excited to celebrate with family and enjoy our weekend with him. He's such a trip these days.
How far along?: 26 weeks...last week in the 2nd trimester!!
Baby is the size of a: about 14 inches long and weighs about 2lbs! That's why I can hardly breathe!
The Bump: I look like I swallowed a basketball
Symptoms: back and hip pain, braxton hicks, and dare I say, a little "on edge" ;)
Food Cravings: Popsicles, poptarts, and everything else that's edible. I can't stop, I won't stop!
Anything Making Me Queasy or Sick: just the constant bending down to pick something up and standing back up that is required of a mom of a toddler. it's exhausting
Sleep: I have been going to bed shortly after I put Levi down, waking up when he wakes up, and napping when he naps. EXHAUSTED.
What I miss: sleeping on my belly
Weddings Rings On or Off: on
Any Names Picked Out Yet: Really haven't even talked about it much! We've been so busy!
Movement: Pretty active! In the last week my belly has started going crazy! It's my favorite part of pregnancy!
Maternity Clothes: Yes. But I tell ya, I don't know if it's the clothes or just the stage of life with Levi, but nothing seems to fit well, and everything is irritating! (I told you I've been on edge!)
Labor Signs: Just Braxton Hicks
Best Moment of the Week: You mean month?? ha Yes I've been a bit M.I.A. with Levi having bronchitis and me being sick. But anyway, I'd say getting back in the groove has been so good. This year has been insane and emotional with losing Brett's mom and all that goes with losing a loved one...It's nice that the weather is improving and we've been able to find some delight in our new normal
What I’m excited about/looking forward to: Going to the zoo this week to kick off the season :) And having Brett home for the summer! Just 5 more weeks! It can't come soon enough!
