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.

Sleep:
See my 3AM post about this one...

Symptoms:
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]

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

Aversions:
none

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

Movement:
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. 

Gender:
TEAM PINK

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. 

Milestones:
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.

  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!
