26 Week Update

 26 Week Baby Bump

Brad wasn't home to take my bump shot, hope to update tomorrow!

Image - HERE
Baby's Size?: A head of lettuce
Due Date?: June 16th
Total weight gained/lost: 15lbs! Friday's appointment nearly had me falling off the scale but according to my Dr. I am perfectly on track. Still... I squirm when I think of that number!
Exercise this Week?: Pilates 3 times! Yeah!
Maternity Clothes?: Yes, loving cotton dresses with boots and my poncho still
Stretch Marks?: No thank goodness
Belly Button?: Still in
Wedding Rings On/Off?: On
Sleep?: Same as last week, terrible leg cramps. Upping my calcium intake in hopes to help this
Best Moment of the Week: Spending quality time with Brad for his birthday and waking up to him with his hand on my belly feeling Tate move
Movement?: Yes, lots! Dr. said now I should feel him move everyday and to monitor it (one more thing to stress about?)
Food Craving?: Blueberries and granola with yogurt
Food aversions?: None, maybe that's my problem!
Morning Sickness?: Little queasiness here and there, mainly when I'm too full
Gender?: Boy - Baby Tate Reynold
What I Miss?: Wine, as in more than one glass!
What I am Looking Forward to?: Finishing up the nursery, nesting mode is in full throttle now!

I've been feeling MUCH better these last two weeks, I still do not nearly have as much energy as I did pre-pregnancy, but it is better
Sleeping has been my biggest pain, I wake up 5-10 times a night with wicked leg cramps and muscle spasms
Then when that wakes me up, I have a hard time falling back asleep since Tate apparently is practicing for soccer or football tryouts and is kicking under my right rib - oh boy!
I am loving pregnancy so far, but am still working on "embracing" my new figure
Walking into Gap and seeing all the lovely Spring dresses makes me miss my waist!
I am so looking forward to April!



  1. if you ever get cramps/spasms in your calves, make sure you pull your toes up toward you! that will stop them immediately

    1. Thanks Dr;) That does work, I have to admit!
