Hope you & your fams had a very Merry Christmas. We had so much fun being with lots of family & also enjoyed celebrating our last Christmas as a family of two! Christmas is going to be a little different next year.
Today completes week 26 of being pregnant and starts the last week of the second trimester --- crazy.
How far along? 26 weeks
Baby Size: 2lbs, 14 inches long, & continuing to put on the baby fat. The baby’s ears are almost fully developed & can now hear our voices. No more drama! Jk.
Total weight gain/loss: No clue but I’m hoping I’ve slowed down since last doc visit.
Maternity clothes? All bottoms are maternity at this point but still squeezing into a lot of non-maternity tops.
Stretch marks? No, but I did buy some Palmer’s lotion to hopefully keep this answer a 'no'.
Sleep: Yes & No. Waking up a lot during the night but thinking this is due to holiday chaos.
Best moment this week: Spending Christmas with my family and talking about how much fun next year will be with the little one.
Miss Anything? The vino sure would have been delightful over the holiday but I drank lots of Welch’s sparkling grape juice- brings back lots of childhood memories! I did have a glass of fancy wine (who can resist?) and it was relaxing. Sure did enjoy not having holiday hangovers this year like most of my fam!
Movement: A little bit, mostly at night. This continues to worry me (me worry?) but I’m trying to remember that I have an anterior placenta (sorry for the medical/baby term) so it prevents a barrier between baby and stomach, which leads to less feeling of movement yet the baby is more than likely kicking away.
Food cravings: Oddly, lots of sweets this past week. Over-indulged in Christmas chocolate & pies. And I may have gone thru Chick fil a yesterday for a cookies & crème milk shake as if my holiday intake wasn’t enough!
Aversions/Anything making you queasy or sick: Nada.
Misc: I passed the 3 hour glucose test!!! Praise the lord.
