26 Weeks: Still An Eggplant

"Let your spouse put an ear to your belly -- he might be able to pick up baby's heartbeat (no stethoscope required). Inside the womb, the formation of tiny capillaries is giving baby a healthy pink glow. Baby's also soaking up your antibodies, getting the immune system ready for life outside the womb. Eyes are forming, and baby will soon perfect the blink -- perfect for batting those freshly grown lashes."

How far along? 26wks & 6 days!

Maternity clothes? I'm in them pretty much full time now besides a few stretchy non-maternity shirts. A good friend recently had a baby boy and gave me all of her maternity clothes!

Stretch marks? No stretch marks and I'm applying anti-stretch mark cream.

Sleep? I'm only comfortable sleeping on my left side, which isn't very comfortable to do the entire night. I miss sleep...

Best moment this week? We got our first baby shower gift in the mail yesterday!!

Movement? Baby is still moving like crazy, my absolute FAVORITE thing about pregnancy!!

Food cravings? Pretty much everything I eat gives me heartburn. I haven't had soda in almost 2 years but I'm craving a big giant Dr. Pepper at the moment.

Gender? It's a Boy!!

Labor signs? Nope.

What I miss? I miss my sleep!

What I'm looking forward to? Finishing up our nursery and PASSING my glucose test! And reaching the 3rd trimester tomorrow!!

Weekly Wisdom: If you are experiencing back pain, I highly recommend finding a good chiropractor who specializes in pregnancy chiro has been a life saver!

Milestones: OMG I'm in my 3rd trimester tomorrow!!!

Emotions: I've been pretty "normal" for the most part this week. Still pretty normal!

26 weeks & 6 days pregnant
