26 Weeks

26 weeks and coming to the end of my 2nd trimester. That went fast. Whew! We're about to be in the home stretch and that is just crazy to me. Here's this weeks update.

Size of Baby: Almost 2 pounds and 14 inches long, about the length of a scallion.

How I'm Feeling: I feel pretty good! I have still been getting really tired by about 4:00 in the afternoon so I have been crawling in bed really early (and sleeping great!) every night this week. This baby boy is taking up all of my energy while he's growing. That's okay. He can have it! :)

Cravings/Appetite: I still don't really eat dinner because it makes my indigestion worse if I do. I just eat a big lunch and maybe a small snack of fruit or cheese if I'm even hungry for dinner (I'm usually not). I had a diet coke one night this week which was a big, big mistake because it made my heartburn/reflux awful. I had forgotten that those were on the naughty list during my pregnancies.

Clothes: I mostly wear my maternity jeans or leggings with any of my regular tops. Getting my socks and shoes on and off is a legit struggle. I'm ready for flip flops.
Movement: He hasn't been moving as much this week as he did last week. I had a moment of small panic yesterday when I realized I hadn't felt him move in a long while. A few minutes later he started dancing to let me know he was okay. This little boy. He makes me nervous. It's just so different for me since Campbell was a wild man who moved non stop.

Changes in Me: I have reached the stage where I have to potty every hour so that's annoying. I've been walking around my neighborhood for about 30 minutes almost every day these last 2 weeks. It used to hurt my back so bad but it doesn't at all anymore. Sometimes my belly starts hurting towards the end of my walk though. My belly button is getting more and more shallow. It never popped out with Campbell. I'll be curious to see what happens this time. 

Baby Purchases: We have everything done for Bennett's nursery now. A lot of his stuff has come in but I'm keeping it all stored in his closet for now. The delivery people called yesterday to schedule a time to deliver Bennett's furniture so that's exciting! We have guests coming next weekend so we're holding off on the delivery and getting one last use out of that 2nd guest bedroom before we turn it into a nursery. I seriously don't think there is one thing left for me to do as far as his room goes. We made all of the final purchases yesterday. It's so nice! I feel really on top of it.
Favorite Moment This Week: Campbell has started pulling my shirt up and kissing my belly. I'm not sure if he really knows what's going on in there but he has definitely noticed that his Momma's belly is bigger than it used to be. I always tell him he's so sweet to kiss and love on his baby brother.

Looking Forward To: Our last free weekend of nothing to do before we have a month of busy weekends. We don't have anything planned but since the weather is going to be so nice I imagine we'll spend most of our time outside!
