26 weeks

How far along? 26 Weeks
Total weight gain: Went to the doctor Tuesday- I have gained a total of 25 pounds. I will not however, tell you what the scale is reading. I myself could die when I see it. 
Maternity clothes? Maternity jeans, yes. I was so depressed to say that until a friend let me borrow her designer maternity jeans. They are Paige Jeans and quite AMAZING. They are so so comfy and look fabulous! 
Stretch marks? Not that I can tell!
Sleep: Pretty good. Been tired after all the traveling and staying up late lately. I also borrowed a friend's maternity body pillow and that thing has helped tremendously.
Best moment this week: I have been babysitting a 9 month old- working on my mothering skills- and it has been super fun. I will miss seeing her grin when I come it to get her from her naps!

Miss Anything? my old weight- the weight I am now carrying in my belly has caused back pain and some random swelling in my ankles that I am NOT happy about. 
Movement: I have felt Rilynn a great deal more in the past two weeks. Last night, I swear I could almost feel her distinct toes in my side. :)
Food cravings: I think I ate- or wanted to eat- Dippin Dots every day while I was at the beach. Ice cream is still my go to.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nothing! Except those dirty diapers while babysitting. Wow.
Have you started to show yet? Duh. My bridesmaid's dress for a July 21 wedding has been an interesting fete.

Belly Button in or out? Almost out!
Wedding rings on or off? On

Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy! Just a bit restless at times. And starting to get sleepy again. :(
Looking forward to: the nursery chandelier has come in, and so have the crib bumpers and my fabrics for the den. So excited to get it all in- pictures to come!

  1. It is so neat that we are both from Alabama. What part? We are about an hour away from Birmingham. You are not that big at all, same as me - I am 21 weeks (tomorrow). Congrats on the baby girl. We are having a little boy, first grandchild on both sides of my family... My husband has a little 4 year old girl, girls are mess, so GOOD LUCK! Hopefully, you can come follow my blog - as I will do yours, best of luck!
