Bumpdate :: 26 Weeks {and 2 days}

These past 2 weeks have FLOWN by {for once}, and I am sure that it is all because of Gwen's birthday, birthday party and the start of school.  Hopefully only 3 more months until Addison's arrival!

How far along?
26 Weeks... and 2 days.

Total weight gain/loss?
I had a follow up visit with Dr. P this week {because of the passing out a few weeks back} and I gained about two pounds, which SHE was pretty happy about!  So about 11 lbs so far.

Maternity clothes?
I think that I have decided that from now until delivery I am going to live in leggings.  Lol.  I'm too big in the belly for my regular jeans, but maternity jeans slide right off of me and I am left with a saggy crotch area {sorry for the TMI}.  Therefore, I may be boycotting real pants until Addison is born.

I am back to being EXHAUSTED.  Maybe it's because of the crazy week we had, but I can't sneak enough naps in.  WHICH ends up killing me in the long run bc I can't fall asleep early.  Ugh.  Whatever works though.

Best Moment of the Week?
My baby girl's birthday and start of school.  I have been OVERWHELMED with pride this week.  I am just so in awe of Gwen and how much of a big girl she is.

Oh yeah.  And the most active is EARLY in the morning and LATE at night... not a good sign Addison, not a good sign.

Food Cravings?
Choc chip cookie dough ice cream.  It probably shouldn't be allowed in the house, yet SOMEHOW it always sneaks it's way into the shopping cart.  Damn you, ice cream, damn you.


Labor Signs?
Nope.  I hope those Braxton Hicks don't start showing up... ugh.

Belly Button?
It's on the move for sure.  Meh.

What I Miss?
Pumpkin beer.  And blue cheese with my wings as I watch football.  I may have to buy some pumpkin beer and hide it until after Addison is born.

What I Am Looking Forward To?
Well, next Tuesday I have to go for a growth ultrasound because Dr. P wants to make sure that baby is on track with her growth.  She claims that I am not gaining that much weight and that she doesn't want it to affect the baby.  BUT, the truth is, last pregnancy, at this point, I had gained even less.  So, even though it's not for a GREAT reason, I am looking forward to seeing baby girl again!!!!

Not this week, but next week we enter the third trimester! Yipee!
