26 weeks and counting…

LettuceHow far along are you? 26 weeks

Total weight gain/loss so far: Still down 8 pounds (by doctor’s weight) – at least I’m not still losing.

Wearing any maternity clothes? Yes. They are all that fit without showing off the belly.

How’s the sleep? It’s okay. Most nights are pretty good.

Best moment of the week: Feeling Peanut move more and more

Do you miss anything? Sub sandwiches

How much is baby moving? He’s moving a lot. I predict that we have a future gymnast on our hands.

What are the food cravings like? Still on the chips and salsa kick, plus chocolate (Mr. Goodbars are a current favorite).

Is anything making you queasy or sick? Not really anything these days (cue “Hallelujah Chorus”)

Have you started to show yet? Yep. Nice little bump working its way out there.

Boy or girl? It’s a BOY!

Any labor signs? No. And hopefully not for many weeks yet.

Is the belly button in or out? Still in, but getting a little flatter.

Are the wedding rings on or off? On

What’s the mood? Pretty good.

Lunch boxHow big is the baby? Peanut should be measuring about 13.6 to 14.8 inches long and weigh between 1.5 and 2.5 pounds…or, the size of a head of lettuce. (Or, for you guys who have “no idea what these fruits are” [as said by Jon], the size of a lunch box.)

What’s baby up to this week? Eyes will soon start to open, he’s soaking up my antibodies to protect him once he arrives and he’s taking breaths of the amniotic fluid for practice.

What are you looking forward to? Now that we’re moved in a pretty settled, it’s time to start working on the nursery!
