It's week 26 in this pregnancy and I'm working on getting stuff done while in these last couple of weeks of my second trimester (when my energy is at it's highest). Here's how it's all goin' down…
How far along? 26 Weeks
Total weight gain: I refuse to share this. I'm pretty disgusted with the number actually.
Maternity clothes? Full on maternity clothes. It's been chilly this week so I've been rocking my maternity jeans (with the elastic waist from crotch to boobs – sexy) and sweatshirts.
Stretch marks? Still no new ones.
Sleep: Sleeping better. Though last night my hands kept falling asleep because I guess I was tucking them under my side as I slept. Plus, I'm not getting up in the middle of the night to pee anymore!
Best moment this week: I worked out every single day. EVERY SINGLE DAY. Of course, I ate like there was no tomorrow but… I worked out every single day!
Miss Anything? Doing a full child's pose at the end of workouts. Even with my knees spread apart, this position really hurts my belly when I try to hold it for more than a few moments.
Movement: She moves constantly. It's really cute – my cat Caira loves to snuggle against my belly in the morning and when she purrs, the baby moves!
Food cravings: Minute Maid Lemonade. It's on sale right now at HEB for $1 and we might just buy the entire shelf.
Anything making you queasy or sick: The smell of Hank's kennel has been killing me lately.
Labor Signs: Nope.
Symptoms: I've been getting really swollen hands and massive carpal tunnel syndrome attacks.
Belly Button in or out? In.
Wedding rings on or off? Off a lot this week.
Happy or Moody most of the time: Much happier this week but still having small panic attacks over money and our house.
Looking forward to: Finding a nice maternity dress for upcoming wedding/graduation season. The Boy and I have a few to go to and I'll be “splurging” (as much as I splurge) on a flowy, pretty dress. Thanks to everyone who helped out with suggestions on Twitter.
