Week 26 Update

Happy Monday everyone! I am finally getting myself back on track with my weekly updates. I think it helps that this weekend we didn't travel or have people staying with us. I feel like I got to recharge even though Monday is still here too soon. I can't complain though, my beloved Redskins finally won their first game of the season! That definitely makes Monday a bit more sweeter.

How far along?: 26 weeks, 2 days
Baby is the size of a: Head of lettuce
Total weight gain/loss: 22lbs
The Bump: Grows daily
Symptoms: Starting to get some lower back pain but nothing too uncomfortable
Food Cravings: Still nothing unique, but I am always wanting something sweet. I am definitely trying to get that under control though.
Anything Making Me Queasy or Sick: Over the weekend I got hit with that first trimester nausea. I really hope it was due to dehydration or hunger and not the morning sickness making it's reappearance.
Sleep: Some nights are better than others, but I'm always getting enough sleep
What I miss: I'm missing beer and wine again. It's that time of the year where the weather is perfect for day trips to vineyards. Not to mention, with football season in full swing, sometimes I just want a beer!
Weddings Rings On or Off: On
Any Names Picked Out Yet: Charlotte Noel
Gender Prediction: Girl!
Movement: Sometimes her movements are so quick and spastic it feels like she's throwing a crazy dance party! It's weird to see my stomach twitch when I'm laying down.
Maternity Clothes: All maternity and still trying to style one outfit 6 different ways so I don't feel like I wear the same thing everyday.
Labor Signs: None.
Best Moment of the Week: I had a complete stranger ask me when I was due! I know I've been showing for a few weeks now, but it does make you feel good (and almost catches me off guard) when people stop to ask how far along you are. Makes everything feel real!
What I’m excited about/looking forward to: Finishing the nursery. I think I will call it done after I complete two more projects and find/hang a mirror!


  1. I'm missing pumpkin ale so I can relate. I think I'm going to get a 6 pack for after he arrives. You look fantastic girly. I've had some minor back aches and a heating pad helps! I don't keep it on long so that it doesn't affect my body temp, but it does soothe.

  2. OMG you're in the last trimester already?!

    yay!!! BABY!
