Today is: March 5th, 2013
How far along: 26 weeks 1 day
Total weight gain: 15.2 pounds for the pregnancy, up 6.2 from 3 weeks ago-OUCH!
Baby is the size of: A HEAD OF LETTUCE, approximately 14 inches long and according to thebump 1.5-2.2lbs! We had a quick scan today but didn't get any measurements
Baby is a: A BOY!
Maternity clothing: Most definitely. A few non-maternity shirts and pj pants but that's about it
Sleep: It has actually been pretty good lately. I'm up 2-4times to pee but have been able to fall back asleep. I did have a nasty cold last week and took Tylenol PM two nigths
Movement: Yes! They're getting stronger. It's still not as constant as it was with T but I feel him when I'm sitting or laying and occasionally when I'm standing
Cravings/Aversions: Cravings? Anything. I have gotten to the hungry all the time stage. Aversions? Nothing really
- Achy. I'm now starting to feel heavy and pregnant
- Sore boobs
-Pubic Symphysis pain- it's just beginning. The chiropractor has helped a lot but I still feel it when I'm moving in bed
How this pregnancy is different than the first:
-No colostrum. With Truitt I was already leaking. Nothing is happening yet
The best moment(s) of this past week:
-Lots of movement
-Ultrasound today! I had some spotting two weeks ago and had an ultrasound then to check. At that point I had placenta previa. Today we rechecked and it's still low lying but no longer previa!
-Truitt has been SO sweet hugging and rubbing my belly!
I'm looking forward to:
-Working on the nursery
-Baby shower planing
-E finally feeling him!
