Size of Baby: This week the baby is measuring approximately 14.4 inches crown to heel and is weighing in around 1.93 pounds on average...however, my baby isn't average! Last Thursday LC was already up to 2lbs2oz and measuring one week and one day ahead! Yay for bigger babies!!!
Picture of Baby: This was taken last week at 26weeks 2days. Not the best shot as LC likes to hide in the placenta!
Weight Gain: I don't quite remember what I weighed last week (probably intentionally) but I can tell that my weight is increasing rapidly. They told me last week at the doctors that I should be gaining 1 pound a week from here on out. Yikes!!
Belly: No new ones this week.
Stretch Marks: None yet.
Sleep: I have been taking Benadryl (25mg) at night because my allergies have been so bad and this has been making my sleep quite heavenly.
Best Moment of the Week: Working on getting the nursery organized. I know that I am on bed rest, but there is no reason that I can't put a chair in front of the nursery closet and organize things. It actually makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside!
Movement: Non-stop. I really don't think LC ever sleeps!!
Symptoms: The newest one is leaking boobs. I hate it!! It happens periodically but I notice that when I am talking to someone about the baby or something baby related, I look down and my shirt is soaked.
Food Cravings: Mango Bubble Tea! This is a iced mango flavored tea with tapioca pearls on the bottom. Yum!
Gender: 4 days until the big reveal!! Can't wait to share the news!!
What I Miss: Walking! As nice as I thought it was having my ass wheeled around by my husband, I have now realized how much it sucks. All I want to do is walk like a normal person
What I'm Looking Forward to: My 3D/4D ultrasound which is this Thursday evening. I have to admit that I am a bit worried that LC isn't going to cooperate. LC tends to hide in the placenta so getting pictures has been difficult. I am also looking forward to my shower which is coming up this Saturday and also finally being able to reveal LC's gender and name!
Nursery: All the work is pretty much done. The furniture, with the exception of the rocker and ottoman, is being delivered on Friday. Once the furniture is in place I can decorate. The closet is in the process of getting organized. I seriously cannot believe all the clothes this kid already has!
Weekly Wisdom: Being happy doesn't mean that everything is perfect. It means that you've decided to look beyond the imperfections.
Milestones: My next milestone will be the 3rd trimester which is in 3 days!! Also, once we hit 28 weeks I can breathe a big sigh of relief!
