Bumpdate #7: 26 Weeks
Baby is about the size of a head of lettuce !
Total weight gain: 12 pounds
Maternity clothes: Regular pants with the bellaband still work. Maternity jeans and leggings. No need for maternity tops yet...regular sweaters and shirts still fit.
Stretch marks: Palmer's Cocoa Butter and Honest Company Belly Balm. No stretch marks!
Belly button: It's flat and looking more bizarre by the day.
Wedding ring: On
Movement: Tons of movement, especially when I am lying down or trying to fall asleep. Baby is getting stronger so we have moved beyond the feeling of popcorn and bubbles. Now movement feels like bulges and kicks.
Sleep: Sleeping well. Getting up about once a night to go to the bathroom.
Last doctor appointment: We had an appointment with our awesome midwife on Tuesday. Healthy mama, healthy baby. In fact, I think she used the phrase "reproductive nirvana." She said to make sure I'm eating lots of protein as I can stand to gain some weight and it's important for baby's brain development.
Feeling: Both amazed that we are almost to the 3rd trimester and realizing I hardly remember what it's like not to be pregnant. It feels both fast and slow at the same time. Hungry pretty much every hour of the day.
Missing anything: Skiing.
Best moments this week:
1. We are taking a hypnobirthing class and loving it!
2. Relaxing and enjoying our last months as a twosome.
