How far along? 26 weeks
Baby’s Size: About 14" long (the length of an english cucumber) and a pound and two-thirds.
Total Weight Gain: I haven't actually weighed myself this week, but I'm going to guess 19 pounds.
Maternity Clothes: Exclusively!
Gender: Boy! :)
Movement: Holy COW. Not only do I feel kicks and punches, but my whole belly contorts when he changes position. He has been a wild man in there lately... particularly at night.
Sleep: Better this week.
Symptoms: Swollen, painful lower back and ankles. Contractions every day.
Best Moments this week: Yesterday, when I was holding a brand new babe (one week old!) Elliot got jealous and started kicking her butt (literally). He was kicking hard enough for her to feel it and squirm. :)
Food Aversions: None really.
Food Cravings: COOKIES! Uh oh.
What I miss: Being able to shave my legs without contorting into a very comical (and uncomfortable) position.
What I am Looking forward to: Next week, along with my regular ultrasound, I'm also meeting the pediatric surgeon and the neonatal team.
Milestones: Hmmmmm. Getting closer to the third trimester!
