I sort of skipped last week's bumpdate since I was out of town. I did post a pic, though! We are finally back from vacation and to be honest I'm a little sad. There is nothing like being able to relax at the beach or just spend some quality time with your family. And? Having multiple other pairs of hands to pass the baby off too is pretty awesome ;)
How far along? 26 weeks
Weight gain/loss: 131 lbs. Up 13 total.
Feeling: Tired and sick to my stomach. Not due to morning sickness or anything, but rather to the fact that she loves to somersault over and over, especially when we're stuck in stop-and-go traffic. I had an anterior placenta with Carina, and that insulated the blow of all of her tiny kicks quite nicely. This time? Not so much.
Maternity clothes? Yes, and I'm starting to grow out of some of the smaller T-shirts I have. Belly is just getting too big.
Sleep: Can we skip this one? Not good. Tossing and turning all night, and Carina has been fussing/crying out in her sleep which of course wakes me up. I'm just exhausted most of the time.
Food cravings: Chocolate. Along those lines? Stay tuned later this afternoon... ;)
Movement? Refer to "Feeling", above, as I try really hard not to lose my breakfast.
What I miss? I officially can no longer carry Carina. I can pick her up and put her down quickly, but I can't carry her around with me. Sad panda.
Best moment this week: Seeing both of our families! Beach, seafood, friends, fun...couldn't ask for anything more.
What I'm looking forward to: Picking out a grill with Mike this weekend! It's his belated Father's Day present. Any recommendations? We're thinking gas.
Next Appointment: next OB appointment on July 12th but silly me double booked for the same time as Carina's nutritionist appointment. Guess I'll have to reschedule. I also have the lovely gestational diabetes screen next week. Please cross your fingers that I pass? I failed the 1 hour last time and really don't want to have to do both again.
Milestones: Baby's eyes are fully developed this week.
Around 25 / 26 weeks with Carina was around the time when people said I "popped". I think I've been "popped" for quite some time this pregnancy ;)
