How Far Along :: 25 and 26 weeks (Sooo I'm a little behind on these updates. I actually reached 27 weeks on Saturday but ya know, who's counting?! ;) To catch up, I decided to combine a couple of weeks.
Gender :: Boy!
Belly Growth :: 42 1/2 in.
Maternity Clothes :: Yes, definitely. I am in desperate need of a good pair of maternity jeans so if you have any recs, send them my way! I'll get a chance to look at a few places while we are in the Boise/Meridian area this weekend. I haven't bought enough maternity clothes to feel comfortable buying something in the right size online.
Belly Button In or Out :: In
Sleep :: Much better! Still not the most comfortable, but back to only getting up a couple times in the night and being able to fall right back to sleep.
Best Moment this Week :: I thought I'd share two best moments since we are covering a couple weeks here ... the first being my 6 month doctor's appointment. It is always so sweet to hear the baby's heartbeat and know he is doing great. My second favorite moment this week has been adding to the nursery. It is coming together! We found a dresser (amen) and a friend's mom was sweet enough to pick it up for us while she was on a trip to Utah. I also decided against painting since we have a brand new house and did a fun accent wall with vinyl instead. It is quickly becoming my favorite room!
Miss Anything :: Fitting into smaller spaces like I used to. haha I can't even tell you how many times a day I accidentally run my belly into a door because I underestimate my ability to fit... sorry baby!
Movement :: This is seriously so special, I love it! I feel like he is already on a schedule because the times of day that he kicks have become pretty predictable. His favorite time of the day is of course, between the hours of 10 and midnight and I joke with Nic all the time that he is going to be a little night owl just like his dad. It also revolves around meals too because who doesn't get excited for food?! :)
Cravings :: Ice cream or popsicles, fruit, and everything I'm not supposed to have (i.e. too much seafood, deli sandwiches, etc.)
Feeling :: As cheesy as it sounds, so in love with my husband. I worry like anyone else about giving up quite a bit of the time we get to spend just the two of us when this baby arrives but I'm realizing that he is only bringing us closer together. We were sitting on the couch watching a show last night and the baby started moving like crazy. He quickly got up and sat behind me. We both just smiled and felt the baby move together for a while. He is a dream boat, that guy.
Emotions :: Happy!
Looking Forward to :: I can tell you what I am not looking forward to... that dreaded glucose test that is coming right up for me in a week! Especially for a person who doesn't drink pop, juice, or really anything flavored for that matter. I mainly stick to water. Something about a thick, syrupy, flavored bottle of liquid that is full of sugar does not sound appealing to me. So I guess I am looking forward to it! Getting it over with that is! ha
