26 weeks & the Bump!

Goodbye cute bump. :(

How far along? 26 weeks

Weight gain/loss: I gained 2 more pounds. Total weight gain is 12 pounds. I feel like I've gained weight (I'm more out of breath and it takes more energy to get myself to workout), but I just don't see it. My belly is HUGE though so I think it's all in my belly and face. :)

Maternity clothes? I finally bought my Belly Bandit BDA (before.during.after (pregnancy)) pants. I hope they are as comfy as they look and as comfy as people have said.

Stretch marks?
None.


Sleep?
Sleep is the same, not great.


Best moment this week?
I had a waitress say how good I looked for being 25 weeks along. I don't think she knew I was pregnant until I stood up. When you are having one of those blah days and you feel like you are HUGE, it's always nice to hear how good you look.


Food cravings:
Last Saturday, I wanted deep dish pizza, then hamburgers, then I wanted tacos, turkish pizza and pan de dulce (Mexican sweet bread). Then, a few nights ago I wanted my mom's tacos so we went out and bought groceries to make them. Not quite as good as mom's, but they satisfied me. :)


Gender:
Girl!


Belly button in or out?
I almost have a full "outtie".

Movement?
Lots of movement and stronger kicks. I felt something poke out of my belly the other day. Weird!


What I miss?
Not having to do Bradley Class exercises (tailor sitting, squats, kegels, pelvic rocking, butterflies, relaxation practice and labor practice), but it's preparing me for giving birth to our baby girl so of course it's worth it in the end. :) And also not having to keep track of my protein count.

What I'm looking forward to:
Glucose test next week! I'm looking forward to getting that out of the way. And being in my 3rd Trimester! Although, I'm not exactly sure when that is, some books/websites say 26, 27 and 28 weeks. Whatever. It's sometime within the next 2 weeks. :)


Milestones: Our baby might be developing an adorable habit this week: thumb-sucking. While the baby's hands remain clenched most of the day, she might unclench and stick out her thumb every now and then. If our baby likes the comfort from sucking, it might just be a well-established habit way before a pacifier is ever seen.

Our baby now has distinct sleeping and waking cycles, as well. At certain times of the day she's very active, somersaulting and boxing, while at other times, she sleeps. This is TRUE! and I noticed this weeks ago. In addition, all five senses are now fully developed.
