Week 26

How far along? 26 weeks 6 days

Total weight gain/loss: Like I said, I should just remove this question :) Although based off doctors scales I'm okay I guess.... I dunno. I actually have a drs appt next week.

How big is baby? Baby is the size of a head of lettuce. She's still growing in the 13.6 to 14.8 inch and 1.5 to 2.5 pound range, and developing her senses, features and talents.
  • Her eyes are forming, and her eyes will soon start to open
  • Her eyelashes are now grown, too
  • She's getting her immune system ready for life on the outside by soaking up your antibodies
  • She's taking breaths, too. They're of amniotic fluid, not air, but it's still good practice.

Maternity Clothes? yup.  I actually tried on regular jeans last week and they were so dang uncomfortable.

Stretch Marks? I'm afraid of saying this... but so far just the ones I already had.... Now I'll probably find another one.

Best moment this week?I had a sad moment this week. Sadly hubby and I got into a huge fight. But best moment... um... I almost forgot... my brain is leaving me this week... I got all of Peanuts clothes washed and hung, we got her crib put together and a glider for her room. We're well on our way!!
ignore the horrible picture of me please!

Movement? She kicks like crazy, but I say that, she's been fairly quite today. Usually she's moving on my right side. Yesterday she started moving to my left side and it was weirding me out.

Food Cravings/Aversions? eh nothing more than the normal.

What I miss: I miss steak. I miss my brain. I miss not being tired all the time.

What I'm looking forward to: Meeting this sweet little girl.

Nausea/Vomiting? well I threw up yesterday but it wasn't pregnancy related I don't think.

Labor signs? Not that I know of....

Gender? We have had them verify it's a girl 3 different times. Think it's a girl?!?!

Belly Button in or out? ugh, I don't even want to talk about this. grrrr! :)

Wedding rings on or off? Sadly I had to give up my rings this weekend. I took my wedding band off which I NEVER do and I bawled my eyes out. Hubby was a sweetheart and bought me a cheap ring set that looked like wedding rings to wear until I get my rings back but they're not the same, although I have been wearing them.

Sleep? I sleep through the night but at the same time I wake up feeling exhausted. My dreams are about to do me in too.

Weekly Wisdom: So I had to take the glucose test this week. 140 or less is passing. I came back 143 so today I get to go and take it a second time for a 3 hour test. The other was a 1 hour test. I guess we'll see if I have gestational diabetes or not. Wish me luck!

Due Date: Thursday June 26, 2014 was what we originally thought. Then I was told June 30, then July 4th, then June 26, then June 27 and after the 3-D ultra sound June 28. I guess she'll come when she's ready, right?
