26 Weeks!

How Far Along: 26 weeks
Size of baby:   Baby now weighs about a pound and two-thirds and measures 14 inches (an English hothouse cucumber) from head to heel.
Gender: IT'S A BOY!! We finally agreed on a name... and that we want to keep it a secret! Okay, we've told a few people but are trying to keep it a surprise for the most part!
Maternity Clothes: Yep.  I've been searching online trying to find maternity clothes that 1) don't cost a fortune and 2) don't look hideous. When I was pregnant with Avery I was on bed rest by the time I needed to wear maternity clothes so my current selection is very limited (especially jeans and dress pants). I just hate to spend a bunch of money on clothes I'm only going to wear for 10-12 weeks. 
Movement: This little guy is moving all the time! I'm starting to feel a few soft rib kicks... right now they don't hurt but I had forgotten how uncomfortable rib kicks are when you start to run out of belly room!
Sleep: Starting to wake up once in a while to go to the bathroom.  I've been drinking a ton of water which I know I need but doesn't help at night!
Symptoms: My ankles are still a little swollen at the end of the day but are back to normal in the morning so I'm trying to keep my feet elevated as often as possible. 
Cravings:  Fruit and ice cream.  I can't get enough! 
Best moment this week: I've been feeling great this past week! We had a wonderful weekend and I've finally started getting things ready for his nursery.  Oh, and we leave for CO in THREE DAYS!! I cannot wait to see family and friends, I've been looking forward to this trip for almost six months!

  1. Try Kid to Kid and Ross for cheaper maternity clothes. It's hit or miss, I'll admit, but definitely worth it if you can get a pair of jeans for $5.
