How far along? 26 weeks, last week of 2nd trimester!
Total weight gain/loss: up 12 lbs
Maternity clothes? Got a few new things this week — a pair of denim shorts and a tank (that I can’t find online, but this one from Loft Maternity is very similar) from Macy’s/Pea in the Pod, and a simple black v-neck tee from Gap Maternity. This dress was also really cute on me, but was already a bit short in the front so I passed.
Stretch marks? Nope
Symptoms: Just a tiny bit of heartburn at night.
Sleep: Fine, nothing new. I’m wrapping myself in a comforter burrito to simulate the Snoogle experience.
Best moment this week: Can’t think of anything in particular…
Worst moment of the week: Confirmed at my appointment this week that I’m still on pelvic rest for placenta previa, and she is currently breech. That explains all of the very low kicking at least! Still plenty of time for things to move around to where they are supposed to, so I’ll get another ultrasound at my next appointment. But doctor appointments tend to put me in kind of a funk.
Have you told family and friends: Yes
Miss Anything? Nah
Movement: She’s all over the place and you can definitely see movement from the outside.
Food cravings: Nothing in particular.
Anything making you queasy or sick: No
Have you started to show yet: Yes
Labor Signs: No
Belly Button in or out? On it’s way out. After eating I swear sometimes it feels like it’s going to fall off.
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy
Looking forward to: It’s supposed to rain all weekend so I’m going to get to work on the nursery curtains. So really I’m looking forward to having those done, because I know it’s going to be a long and painful process!
