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!
