26.5 weeks (because every half counts!)
and then i remembered that i only have 1.5 more weeks in my second trimester and i'm all, whaaat?
so here's what's happening around this belly lately:
how far along are you? // 26.5 weeks exactly
due date // september 5th
total weight gain // 13 pounds
countdown // 93 days (ah!)
maternity clothes // i've been fortunate to only have to wear tshirts and dresses for maternity and pants are always so hot and itchy, that belly band is holding up for now. (literally!)
stretch marks? // nada. (knock on wood?)
sleep? // okay, crazy pregnancy dreams and insomnia. in these dreams sometimes i'm a mermaid that will drown if i go under the water, or i'll stab someone occasionally. i wake up feeling more tired than when i went to bed. so i just take lots of naps.
best moments // thinking about baby things as we walked around Babies R Us the other day & my mom getting baby their first outfit. little squishy baby!
movement // lots of kicking and rolling around and yes.
food cravings // so much sugar. i'm trying really hard to cut back. sometimes i only have 3 cookies for breakfast instead of 8. but sugar and snowcones and fresh fruit/drinks.
belly button in or out? // it's like the top is poking out and the bottom isn't going anywhere.
symptoms // itchy belly, running out of breath easily, pregnancy brain (all day e'ry day) and braxton hicks.
wedding ring on or off? // on with no trouble, but all my other rings don't fit anymore. is that weird?
happy or moody? // both. sometimes in the same sentence.
looking forward to... // shopping for baby things & nick's birthday (his last birthday with just the 2 of us. it's so crazy!)
oh i'm so excited. i feel 100% unprepared, but i'm excited.
