Pregnancy Journal: Week 26

I can't believe how fast everything seems to be going now! Which also means there are 16 weeks and 6 days until Christmas!!

How Far Along -  
26 Weeks Pregnant (26 weeks 0 days) 

Due Date - 
December 12th, 2013 

Boy or Girl - 
Unknown - this is our surprise baby :-)

Bump Picture -  

Baby Development - 
The network of nerves in the baby's ears are better developed and more sensitive than before. Now baby may be able to hear both my voice and my hubby's voice as we chat with each other. Baby is inhaling and exhaling small amounts of amniotic fluid, which is essential for the development of it's lungs. These so-called breathing movements are also good practice for when baby is born and takes that first gulp of air.

Symptoms -  
I have been pretty tired and still dealing with the pain in my lower abdomen. Also seems like I am hitting my nesting phase really early because I am going nuts cleaning this darn house. 

Current Cravings -  
All food... I am always hungry :) 

Currently Avoiding - 
I am still avoiding doughnuts and orange juice both give me a very bad upset stomach. I am to afraid to try them again.  

Belly Button Status -  
It's starting to stick out just a little. Sweet Pea always points to my belly button and says "buttin"...

Movement -  
Baby is moving a lot now and is very active! The baby sits low and likes to stretch out into my ribs. 

Any Appointments? -  
No appointments this week.

Any Baby Related Purchases? -  
Didn't buy anything again this week for the baby, but I did receive a really cute onesie with a review item I got for the baby :-)

  1. You look awesome, as usual. And that white shirts looks great on you!

  2. Time's going so fast! I hated when my babes would stretch into my ribs like that, it hurts!
