How far along: 26 Weeks
Maternity clothes: This is the largest I have ever been, even with Olivia, so I’ve had to be really creative. I still wear a lot of gym clothes, but I found a few more maternity clothes while out and about with my mom. I love how maxi dresses are in.
Stretch marks: No. It is a miracle. Do I think I will get them? Yes.
Sleep: I’m hit or miss. Lately, it has been Olivia keeping me up, but little boy definitely likes to party at night while I am trying to sleep! Also, I get the worst cramps in my legs at night where I am paralyzed. Sleeping is definitely an art with pillows between my legs and sitting up.
Best moment this week: I was sitting in a movie and he was having a good old-time kicking and moving. This was the first time I actually saw my belly move.
Miss anything: Not gaining weight. I did so well the first trimester and then it ended. I miss biking a lot. I miss running in 5K’s and training for races. I definitely miss my clothes. A lot.
Morning sickness: I have been very fortunate to not have to deal with this! Unfortunately, I have to go get some dental work done, which really hurts and sucks so I count that towards the pain of morning sickness.
Movement: Oh ya, totally moving and kicking and I love it!
Food cravings: Everything. Food is my enemy right now!
Anything making you queasy or sick: It’s weird, but the smell of Mike’s deodorant makes me kind of queasy.
Have you started to show yet: Yes. I actually lie to people about when I am due because they give me this look like I am about to bust any minute. I told a lady yesterday that I was due in June and she told me I was in for a long pregnancy. Nice. (If you calculate, I am due mid-July.)
Gender prediction: Boy. I’ve had two people walk up to me on the street and say “you are having a boy, huh?”. I must be carrying him like a boy! I didn’t know there was a certain way we carried the sex of the baby. I still think it’s an old wives tale.
Labor signs: No, but my belly seems to be getting lower.
Belly button in or out: Flat and weird and shows through when I wear white shirts.
Wedding rings on or off: Off.
Happy or Moody most of the time: Moody. I am really defensive about people being in my personal space. I also have this paranoia thing going on where I think people are trying to control me, even though they are just trying to be nice. Seriously, pregnancy makes me so nuts.
Looking forward to: Ultrasound next Monday where I can see him and see how he is doing! Nerve wracking, yet awesome at the same time!
