How far along: 26 Weeks
Baby’s size: 14.02 Inches and 1.68 pounds. In comparison, Bed Bug is the size of a Boule de pain which is a rustic loaf in the shape of a ball. Basically, really yummy bread.
Sleep: Not too bad. Honestly, I can’t complain about any amount of sleep since here in 3 short months I won’t be getting much. Leg cramps have started and so that always make sleep interesting but other than that and it being a bit harder to change positions due to the growing belly, I can’t complain.
Best moment this week: Christmas, of course!! We had a great Christmas day so it was really fun. Had my doctors appointment yesterday and he is measuring great and HB was good. I start going every 2 weeks now and will do my glucose test next appointment. Yuck!
Worst moment this week: Only having the one day off. We really need like a weeks vacation. Not necessarily to go anywhere but to just rest. We are pretty tired.
Movement: He’s a moving, moving. Again, mostly active in the morning and evening times which follows the patterns of my other kiddos. He is also starting to stretch that long body of his so bending and even siting at a 90 degree angle is pretty difficult. My ribs are taking the brunt of all the stretches and I’m pretty sure they’re over this “making babies” thing.
Cravings: Nothing that is actually in season here in the midwest. I really want fruit like watermelon or fresh blueberries but that’s not going to be happening. Always want what we can’t have. Boo.
Missing Anything: Endurance. I’m getting close to the third trimester so things get a little wonky. Stairs become a little more difficult, especially when I’m carrying a 38 pound toddler, and every day activities take a bit longer.
Queasy or sick: I’ve developed a dang cold which is never fun. Sore throat is in full force but nothing I can’t handle. It can always be worse when it comes to sickness during pregnancy. I had some scary dizzy spells yesterday but they seemed to pass so that was good.
Looking forward to: The kids go back to school next week which is always bittersweet but they are definitely ready to get back on a routine. New Years Eve fun tomorrow night and then hoping to work our last weekend this weekend but I’m not holding my breath on that. We will get back to those eventually. hahaha
Happy New Year Everyone!!!
