A lovely picture taken post-workout by Sugar. She held the camera straight!
How far along: 26 weeks
Size of baby: approx. 14 inches head to heel, almost 2 pounds
Total weight gain: 18 pounds
Maternity clothes: yes, only. Some shirts are already getting too short. What’s up with that?
Gender: don’t know and we won’t find out, I’m starting to go with the kids and think it might be a boy.
Movement: lots – so many hard, belly shaking kicks these days. Also some dramatic movements of baby sticking its bottom out really far.
Sleep: really well most nights in spite of frequent bathroom breaks
What I miss: still miss being able to do workouts at the gym as I start growing bigger and bigger
Cravings: none really, just need to eat some protein every two hours
Symptoms: nothing out of the ordinary, achy hips and feet are probably the biggest
Best moment of the week: I sewed some old prefold diapers I was given by a friend into fitteds. I need a baby to try them on, but I think they will work. It’s my first project for the baby! I also purchased a co-sleeper and made a nice, long to-do list. Hopefully I can start crossing some things off it soon.
