Bébé Deux Week 26 Update

Today's date: August 27, 2013

How far along: 26 Weeks

Total weight gain: 9.5-10 pounds {depending on if you trust my scale or the doctor's ;)}

Size and growth of baby: David is the size of a head of lettuce! He is around 2 pounds, and 14 inches long. David's eyes will soon open and his eyelashes are fully formed! His immune system is strengthening for life outside of the womb, and is continuing to practice breathing with amniotic fluid. {via}

Baby is a: boy!

Maternity clothing: All clothing, except a few shirts I wear at home, are maternity.

Sleep: Hard to fall asleep, but can sleep for awhile once I'm finally out. Naps are mostly a miss these days, but I get the occasional one in from time to time.

Movement: I feel movement everyday, even if it's little. I got nervous because David had 2 quiet days in a row, but he's been doing well ever since. Plus, his heart rate was perfect at my appointment this morning :)

Cravings/Aversions: Chocolate, BBQ brisket sandwich, Nutella, chocolate chip banana bread, and strawberries. Aversions are no more, but strong smells can still get to me.

Morning Sickness: I felt really sick last night, but not enough to take a Zofran. Going on a full month without now :)

Symptoms: Round ligament pain, nesting, a few extra pimples, gas, movement, heartburn, trouble sleeping, peeing a fair amount, light contractions if I overdo it, and tired.

Labor Signs: Not many BH this week, which was nice.

Belly button in or out: In

How this pregnancy is different than the first: I have gained more weight, have more round ligament pain, and am having a harder time nesting with this pregnancy.

The best moment of this past week: Feeling David kick, realizing we are in double digits for the countdown to my due date (98 days!), and spending time with my little family!

What I miss: Nothing at all :)

I'm looking forward to: Getting the glucose test over and done with tomorrow, seeing my parents Saturday, starting 2 week appointments with the doctor, and cooler weather!

  1. Good luck with the glucose test! I have mine in 5 weeks at 28 weeks. I can't take naps....if I do I'm up all night!! Which means I'm almost a zombie at 6pm, or earlier, some days. I'd say I've been sleeping well, but seeing as I'm up at 5:30 am this morning.... :)
    Have fun seeing your parents!
