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!
