26 Weeks

Pregnancy Highlights: 

How Far Along: 26 Weeks

Size of baby: Two weeks ago at the DR they were both weighing in at a pound and a half.  Baby Center says they weigh about a pound and two thirds each and are about 14 inches from head to toe.  All I know is that this belly is getting quite large and that by the end of the day, Momma is pretty uncomfortable.

Total Weight Gain/Loss: more than 15 lbs...but I don't weigh at home.  So, at my next DR visit, I'll have an accurate answer.  I'd guess about 17 lbs to date.

Maternity Clothes: Do other clothes even exist anymore?

Gender: It's a GIRL AND A BOY!!!

Movement: They are totally practicing their gymnastics in there!  All day long...they are active little buggers.

Sleep: I could sleep ALL.DAY.LONG.  I'm still sleeping pretty decent at night, too.  I just really love a nap every day.

What I miss: Gonna just have to have a standard answer here of cold beer or "soda" as we call it in our family.  Fall, football, a patio and a big, cold mug of soda sounds about perfect.

Cravings: SUGAR...Anything sweet.  I'd really love a Heath candy bar but haven't had any luck finding them at the store.  Or, the Russell Stover chocolate covered toffee...ahh....

Symptoms: Sinuses...same as with Molly.  I have chronic sinus issues when pregnant.  My back is killing me.  I can sit for about an hour for work and then I have to walk around the house for about 5 minutes or sit in the recliner with the laptop in my lap.  It's pretty uncomfortable.  And, it's always my right side, mid back.  The chiropractor could possibly help, but he has so many opinions about vaccines and all, that I just don't have the patience for him.

Best Moment this week: My girl got up at 6:45 Tuesday morning.  We are typically a 7 - 7:30 house.  Mommy would love to be an 8:00 house.  But, we are cutting those "i" teeth and sleep hasn't been fabulous this week.  So, we got up at 6:45 and we were watching "tootles" AKA Mickey Mouse Clubhouse.  I was laying on the sofa and she was sitting at the top of my belly next to me.  Out of nowhere, she leaned over, took her sassy (aka paci) out of her mouth and gave me this super sweet all puckered up kiss.  Melt.My.Heart.  That girl...ah...she is so sweet.
