How Far Along: 26 weeks (pic: 26w3d)
Size of Baby as Relative to Common Household Fruit or Vegetable: Eggplant
Total Weight Gain: I think I’m up almost 6 lbs now!
Movement: The movement has changed a lot in the last week or so. She’s finally starting to run out of room and starting to adopt a newborn’s sleep schedule. So she moves less and when she does move, it feels different from before. Lots of twisting and stretching, as opposed to big kicks and punches.
Sleep: I should be getting more of it!
What I Miss: A life without back pain.
Cravings: None really.
Symptoms: The girls have grown quite a bit this week. I finally had to give in and buy some new bras to accommodate the change.
Emotions: As normal as my emotions get. My husband had an old friend ask him if pregnancy had made me “crazy” over the weekend. To my pleasure, he confirmed that my moods haven’t really changed that much. 🙂
Maternity Clothes: Again, I really, really miss non-maternity clothes.
Best Moment This Week: Three of my favorite people came to Portland–friends from college–and I got to hang out with them. It was wonderful, because I haven’t seen any of them in a year and a half. I wish we could have gotten more time together, but I’ll take what I can get. I miss my friends. :*)
