26 Weeks

How far along?
Lucky you... you get to see me sans make-up on my way to the gym :)
[Sorry 'bout the pic quality again...B was up and out before I was. So I'm solo on the picture-taking again. AND, if we're gonna keep having these bathroom pics I should let y'all know the wallpaper came with the house and we're only renting! tehe]

Total weight gain:
11 lbs. 

Maternity clothes:
Thanks to everyone for your advice on my last post! I went to Old Navy, and got 6 non-maternity shirts for... drum roll please... $23!!! Two shirts, and four tank-tops. Holy cow that's great.

See my 3AM post about this one...

Just the normal growing pains and aches. Still allergy-free [knock on wood]! 

What I'm looking forward to:
Our first birthing class tomorrow from 9-12: "Baby Care Basics" I have no idea what to expect and am very excited :) 
[Expect a post on that]

Water! Can't get enough of it. I'm waiting for that real weird craving though! When's it gonna come?!


Best moment this week:
Getting a lot accomplished. Will share soon!

Baby Girl got her first case of the hiccups this week. I wasn't sure at first, but the next day it was pretty obvious since the feeling was consistent. It felt like balloons inflating and deflating quickly. 


Belly button:
Kind of an innie-outie. 

What I miss:
Still those hot baths. 

Weekly wisdom:
Don't try to do it all in one day. God sure didn't. I get on these "rolls" where I'm in the mood to get stuff done. The problem is, I don't know when to stop. And I start a whole bunch of projects all at the same time. When I get the urge I just go... It feels great to get a lot done, but then the next day... I'm useless I tell 'ya. 

My baby's eyelids are probably beginning to open by now and she can "see" even though there's not much to see in there. She can also grab onto the umbilical cord. [Practice for yanking grabbing onto my hair one day] I've been playing a lot of Mozart lately for her to listen to. But personally, I think she favors "Glee Pandora" like her mama.

Favorite moments:
Everything. I'm soaking it all in.


  1. Love the bump. I still take baths (almost daily) I just make sure I don't over heat!

  2. aww cute picture! (as always)
    and Glee Pandora?! I have a station for joke :)

  3. You look gorgeous :)
    Seriously... sans makeup you still look beautiful.
    Eliana used to get hiccups ALL the time... cracked me up and was such a weird sensation.

  4. Aww, you're still looking fantastic as ever! Made me laugh about the wallpaper comment ;-) Glad you found some great maternity clothes!! You're right... they always do seem really pricey. Hope you have a fantastic weekend, can't wait to hear about the baby class!!

  5. I was gonna make a joke about the wallpaper. But I saw you thought to mention it in your post:) Love the pictures at the top. Somehow I missed this post and the post before it, maybe that is why I didn't see the pictures on top? Anyway, love 'em!


Comments make me smile :)

& I'm always grateful for what you have to say!
