26 Weeks

How Far Along: 26 weeks.

Size of Baby: Baby is the size of a head of lettuce!

Weight Gain: According to my scale at home I've gained 9.5 lbs.

Maternity Clothes: Some regular shirts still fit me and regular sundresses do too. When I wear shorts or pants it's def. maternity. My favorite maternity piece is my bathing suite though. 

Gender: It's a girl, and they better have gotten it right because her nursery is def. girly!

Movement: Yup!!

Sleep: Sleeping okay, some nights better than others. 

Symptoms: Just getting tired a little more than normal. Honestly the second trimester has been pretty great when it comes to negative symptoms. I guess it's to make up for how awful I felt in the first!

Food Cravings: Any kind of ice cream. 

What I Miss: The regulars: cold lunch meat, running, sleeping on my stomach and being able to lift. 

What I’m Looking Forward To: We should have all the furniture finished by this time next week. So ready to be done with that!

Best Moment This Week: This has nothing to do with pregnancy but I got the sweetest note from a parent on the last day of summer school. Her 3 year old little boy had never been to any kind of preschool and he was just found eligible for special ed services, so this was his first experience in anything like that. He had made soooo much progress and just to get a note thanking me was the best. It was such a sweet reminder of why I love working with special needs children, also kinda bittersweet as it was my last day as I'll be staying home. 

We forgot to take a picture this morning before church (which is when I normally get Clarke to take it) and I didn't feel like changing again. I almost just didn't do a picture but y'all were so sweet to request one last time I didn't. So at least you can see my belly here!

LOVE the bump! And can you not have cold lunch meat when you're pregnant?
