How far along: 26 Weeks, 2 days
Maternity clothes: Yes. I have been wearing a lot of skirts and dresses. They are so much more comfortable than pants. My favorite pants are these black “work pants” that feel like pajamas. I consider them my “lucky” pants because I am so comfortable at work. If only we could wear pajamas to work every day.
Stretch marks: Not yet, but I was reading on my Pregnancy App that week 30 starts a big growth spurt again. I am not sure if I have any room for her!
Fitness: I slacked big time this week, but I have been trying to make it to the gym for 30 minute ellliptical and weights. My favorite weight machine is the GLUTES. It makes me feel awesome afterwards. This week: swimming and working on arms.
Sleep: I felt kind of “off” this week. It started on the weekend where I wasn’t able to catch up on sleep. So Monday night, I came home and fell asleep sitting up on the couch. (I have found that I actually breathe better sitting up, so it wasn’t that pitiful. This getting up at five every day is a killer so I spend the weekends taking naps all the time. This weekend is a three day weekend so it feels AWESOME.
Best moment this week: Mike laid his head on my stomach because we were reading that you can hear the heartbeat at this week if you put your head up to your stomach. Right when he did that, she kicked him in the ear really hard. It was cool because I can feel her kick, but I have never seen it.
Miss anything: This has nothing to do with pregnancy, but good SHOPPING. Sorry Cruces, you don’t have a lot to choose from. I am looking forward to meeting my mom in Phoenix so I can get some good stuff.
Morning sickness: None.
Movement:She definitely kicked it up a notch this week. She is moving around more than kicking. I was all worried she wasn’t kicking enough but found out they have to kick at least four times in an hour. She does that in fifteen minutes. She does have her lazy days though.
Symptoms: Foot cramps, sleepiness, stomach aches (because she is smashing it), also having a hard time breathing when I walk up the stairs. Ha ha!
Food cravings: Frozen yogurt and lasagna.
Anything making you queasy or sick: The smell of the Mountain View Market. Has anyone been in there and noticed its distinct smell? I went in the other day and almost threw up. I had never even noticed the smell before.
Have you started to show yet: Dumb question.
Gender prediction: Girl. Not gonna lie…I still think that it could be a boy, just because I know people that happened to. The nursery is neutral anyway. 🙂
Labor signs: No, next week is the beginning of the third trimester. Crazy!
Belly button in or out: Still going strong and staying in!
Wedding rings on or off: On. I just forget to put it on!
Happy or Moody most of the time: This week. Moody. 🙂 I think once my student teacher gets the hang of things, it will be more happy. It’s hard stuff!
Looking forward to: My glucose test this week. Not.
