Pregnancy Quiz

How far along? 26 weeks - next week I'll be in my 3rd trimester!!

Total weight gain/loss: +24 lbs. Doctor said today that I'm "doing well' with my weight, meaning I didn't gain too much weight this time.

Maternity clothes? Thanks to Jen, I have more variety now. She gave me some jeans, dresses and tops. I'm very thankful for them!

Stretch marks? Rob kindly pointed out to me the other day that I might have the start of my first stretch mark on my belly. Since then the mark is gone so I think it was just my pants making an impression on my skin. I showed him a couple days later that it was gone. He looked at my hip and said "THAT's a stretch mark." Yeah, that was from years ago. Thanks, babe!

Sleep: I got a Boppy body pillow and I have been sleeping better ever since. It is challenging switching sides every hour with the pillow but it is helping with my hip pain.

Best moment this week: Having a weekend with minimal plans. It was nice to lounge around the house and do little to nothing and hanging out with my boys.

Movement: All the the time. I have a future gymnist in my belly.

Food cravings: Not really.

Gender: Boy

Labor Signs: Nope

Belly Button in or out? In

What I miss: Tuna melts.

What I am looking forward to: Our 3D/4D ultrasound in October. (same as last month)

Milestones: Last week I got the news that I passed my glucose test so no gestational diabetes for me! They did tell me I am slightly anemic so now I have to take iron pills which have a side effect of constipation. Awesome.

Bob is the size of an English hothouse cucumber and weighs about 1 2/3 pounds. (Length: 14 inches, head to heel.)

You can thank your Mamasita for your supple, stretch mark-resistant skin. You're welcome :)

Dulcolax Stool Softener! Are you allowed to take something for it? I am VERY concerned - it is the worst! lol
Also, I think it is funny that Bob is a cucumber, I hope he fattens up so I can squeeze his little love chunks.
Sorry about your hip pain! Glad the pillow is helping!
