Watch me grow, Week 26

Pregnancy Highlights:
Man...I think this is not the best outfit...yikes I'm huge looking! 

How Far Along: 26 Weeks
The end of the 2nd Trimester, YIKES!!

Size of the baby: Baby R is now 14 1/2 inches and weighs in at aprox. 2 lbs.  

Total Weight Gain/loss: Well another Dr's apt today....and I'm 4 pounds heaver, YIKES!!  

Maternity Clothes:  Finally fall has arrived...so I am enjoying my fall clothes more! 

Gender: SURPRISE!! We are not going to find out till Baby R arrives in January! 

Movement: Holly Cow!!  This baby is really moving these days.  Not only that but the kicks and pokes are getting much stronger! 

Sleep: Sleep couldn't be better...and I am still loving life with my crazy dreams, ha. 

What I miss: Hum, this week I can't say I am missing much of anything.  Actually I do miss my independence...as in not having to ask for help with lifting and such. That's all 

Cravings:  Sweets this week.  I think it because I knew I had that silly blood glucose test today...so the more I tried to stay away the more I wanted it.

Symptoms: Back pain has arrived again....which means one of two things (yes this could be TMI) A) I need a bigger bra AGAIN!!!   
B) The books are right and your back hurts come the 3rd trimester.
I'm kind of hoping it is just a bra issue...at least I can fix that :-)

Best moment this week: So many good things this week! Getting to spend the weekend with my sister and her family.  I loved being around them!  Then TODAY minus the nasty glucose test, Chris and I heard our sweet baby's heart beat!  That sound is just so reassuring to me, I love it.  Oh and my mom and dad bought all of Baby R's furniture....plus a surprise gift! Can't wait!
