Survey Says: 26 weeks preggers

Thursday, October 10, 2013

Eeeek!  I am so excited. T-minus 1 week and I will be entering my last trimester.  I couldn't be more thrilled to see the light at the end of the tunnel and to meet my little man oh so soon.  Granted it is still 13 weeks away but with the holidays quickly approaching I know it will fly by.

This week was ROUGH all the way around.  Swamped at work mixed with major heartburn and really bad pains in my rib cage = not a happy momma.  I researched the rib cage issue and google said it was pretty common and just the way my uterus is squishing everything...oh and the fact that my kid is half under my ribs. (he is oh so nice)

Russell and I don't have anything planned on the books for the next couple weekends (which I LOVE) because it means I get to relax all weekend in the baggiest clothing I can find.  I am starting to feel like a stuffed turkey on the reg now.  My goal, with all this weekend down time, is to start tackling some nursery art projects that I want to do and use for Ryan's room. 

I hope everyone has a great weekend...I get Monday off so you best beeelieve I am gonna have a fabulous lonnnng weekend.

XOXO, Sherri

Written Thursday, Oct. 10

How far along?: 26 weeks and 6 days

Total weight gain/loss: Up 1 lb from last week.  Total is 17.6.  Not stressing over it at all.  It is still a healthy number and baby is growing.

Maternity clothes?: 90% of time. 

Sleep: Sleep is okay… just up more than I would like for potty breaks and I am getting more uncomfortable.

Best moment of the week:  Getting Ryan’s car seat and stroller delivered to us!  My dad got us our first gifts off our registry and delivered to us that way when we do have a baby shower that is one less thing to worry about bringing home .

Movement: All the time.  He gets the hiccups now at least 2 times a day.  I love seeing my belly move with it.

Food Cravings: PB & J and milk.  I have been eating some PB & J’s like whoa and nothing satisfies me like a glass of milk.  I still have my sweet craving too for chocolate or ice cream sandwiches, which I give in to, but then make sure I eat lots of veggies too.

Gender:  BOY! 

Baby love
Belly Button: flattie

Stretchmarks?:  None yet but I think I see my linea nigrea starting to appear slightly.

What I miss:  Nothing.  I just am ready to meet him!

What I am looking forward to: Having a half day Friday and off Monday for Columbus weekend.  The perks of working for a financial institution that follows all government holidays.

Weekly Wisdom: Baby Ryan is up to 2lbs now and his eyes start to finally open!  He is approximately the size of a head of lettuce.

Milestones: 1 more week until the 3rd trimester begins!  The end is so close and I am estatic!
