26 Week Bumpdate

How far along? 26 Weeks
Weight Gain: 8-9 lbs
How Big is Baby? 2 lbs!! Holy smokes. No veggies this week..
Maternity Clothes? Nothing new
Stretch Marks? Nada
Sleep: Pretty good. I actually went two nights in a row without getting up to use the bathroom and thought I'd won the lottery
Best Moment of the Week: We met with the high risk OB this morning, where they did a full check of our baby girl. Everything looks great! Her right kidney's dilation has already gone down since our last appointment with my regular doc, which is wonderful. We will be going back again in a month to keep an eye on things, but we're very thankful and praising God that she is healthy and whole. It was a lot of fun to see her moving around in there and to know which body part is pushing and kicking on me where!
Movement: Ohyessirree
Food Cravings: Strawberry Limeade from Sonic
Gender: Definitely a girl! I made them check again for me at our appointment :)
What I Miss: Um.. not involuntarily moaning and grunting every time I have to squat down to pick something up or get in and out of bed. I swear it sounds like I'm dying and I keep getting weird looks at the grocery store.
What I'm looking forward to: Getting her crib in and all set up!
Symptoms: Take your pick. Some strange dreams.. I had a dream that my boss was pregnant and then the next night that my friend Megan (!) was pregnant and flirting with my boyfriend. :)
Emotions: Pretty good.

We can definitely tell that she's growing.. I feel like I'm getting bigger by the week! I just can't wait to meet her and see what she looks like!


  1. You look so great!! So glad you are doing (and feeling) so well! I didn't mind the grunting, but I did tell my husband that if I ever peed myself, I was going to yell that my water broke and get the hell out of where ever we were. He is a smart man...he didn't dare question his hugely pregnant wife.

    Can't wait to see pics of the nursery!

  2. I always knew Megan was scandalous. And seriously, could Janie be any funnier??? Also, glad to hear that things looked good at the appointment!

  3. She'll look so much like you! beautiful! i really can't wait to meet her either! It's all so wonderful! You two will make the best parents!

  4. You look awesome chick! so glad everything is going well and that all was good at her appt. I am with you on the dreams-i am having some of the same for sure!

  5. Thanks ladies!

    happy_wife.. if I ever start to lose control of my bowels (God forbid!), you guys will be the first to know!


I ♥ your comments! Strange or lovely or somewhere in between, lay 'em on me!
