26 Weeks

I'm 26 weeks pregnant!

Pregnancy Highlights:

How Far Along: Baby is the size of on eggplant!  And weighs about 1.5 lbs.
Total Weight Gain: Gained 19 lbs! 

Belly Growth: 11 inches.  About the size of a soccer ball.
Maternity Clothes: Oh yes!!
Gender: It's a boy! 

Movement: Yes!  And, you know how I said last week that I might miss it when he's not in my belly anymore?  Well, I would like to recant that statement.  He is starting to hurt me a little!  He is a very busy little boy!
Sleep: Getting better.  I have to get up at least two times a night to potty, but other than that, it's going better.
Symptoms: This is the first week that I have been uncomfortable.  I can't bend over anymore, and my belly is starting to get in the way.  If I spend a lot of time on my feet, my entire body hurts.  I'm a little worried about having to slow down for the next 13 weeks.
Cravings: Yellow cake with chocolate frosting.  LOVE IT.
Emotions: Good this week.  I'm starting to really see the weight gain in my face and cheeks, and that part is hard, but other than that, I've been feeling good.

Best Moment of the Week:  We finally named our sweet baby boy!  Praise God!!

I hope you are all having a wonderful week!
