Bumpdate {26 weeks}

November 10, 2014

how far along: 26 weeks, 2 days

{ we had 2 photo shoots this weekend and I didn’t even think to have Todd take my picture! I’ll have to update when we get our photos back! ooops…}

size of baby: a head of lettuce {13.6 – 14.8 inches, 1.5-2.5 pounds}

gender: little miss!

weight gain: up 13.8 pounds to 141.8 {nope, not 142 quite yet}

maternity clothes: all the way…I’m living in my “softest leggings” from the Gap! best. pants. ever.

stretch marks: still keeping them away!

rings: on

nursery: so much progress was made this weekend! we’ve organized a lot, my dad and Todd painted and were able to set up our changing table/dresser system! I love how its coming along, although I’m realizing we have much less room than I was originally picturing, so I’m going to have to forgo some of the cute extra stuff I had wanted to be in there… {sneak peek}

movement: like crazy, I’m still obsessed!

symptoms: sciatic pains

sleep: sleeping really well, until the early morning comes around! then she likes to have a dance party! last week I was just giving in and getting up around 5:30, which was nice because I had time to make breakfast for the hubby and I, pack our lunches, AND shower and get ready! that basically has never happened!

cravings: sweets. {candy, cake, hot chocolate, doughnuts, & cinnamon rolls}

aversions: nothing in particular

what I miss: coffee with vanilla creamer!

best moment this week: there was so much…loved doing our mini maternity photo sessions, we got to have a nice date night in Malibu Saturday {with an amazing view} and made SO much progress in the nursery! so very grateful to my husband and dad for all of their hard work!

 16 beach
how far along: 16 weeks, 4 days

size of baby: an avocado, 4.6 inches

gender: we know! but I’m going to wait till the doctor confirms to do a gender reveal post 🙂

weight gain: up 1.5 pounds…

maternity clothes: lots of maxi skirts and the hair tie trick still!
stretch marks: nope!
rings: still on!

nursery: still a disaster! I had big plans to organize the closet while the hubby was gone over the long weekend, but that didn’t happen!

movement: I could have sworn I felt a little swish in there on Saturday when I was laying on the couch, but it hasn’t happened again…maybe I was imagining it!

symptoms: feeling pretty good! just some dizziness when I stand up too quick and still nausea if I don’t eat enough.

sleep: eh, okay.  sleeping on my side is not my favorite! still feeling some neck pain and lots of re-positioning through the night!

cravings: nothing specific, but cravings are typically set off by seeing or smelling something! then, I. want. it. now.
aversions: putting on my makeup or doing anything close up to the mirror has been making me nauseous! something my mom mentioned happened to her when she would put on her mascara and I’ve been noticing it the past week or two.

what I miss: walking up a flight of stairs without losing my breath…I guess this will only get worse! better get to walking more!

best moment this week: we had a little gender reveal fiesta with some close friends and family.

looking forward to: a best friend’s bridal shower and spending some time with the hubby this weekend since he was gone last weekend!
