How far along? 26 weeks
Total weight gain: + another 4 pounds
Maternity clothes? both--definitely lots of underneath tops that are longer and I wear leggings or yoga pants like everyday.
Sleep: still better but not great this week. I've been really tired again this week so napping some days and going to bed early. The actual sleep is sometimes a bit restless. Baby sister likes to kick a lot right when I go to lay down. Two nights ago I had to get up and go get another pillow to adjust my angle because she was so busy.
Miss anything? turning over in bed easily.
Food Cravings: oh where to begin. I really only crave the food from home. There are things that sound good but no real cravings.
Anything making you sick or queasy: not no more!
Gender: GIRL aka Baby Sister
Labor signs: no
Symptoms: Straining in my belly. Possible Braxton Hicks only a couple times a week so no biggie. Bloody noses. <-- oh joy!
Belly Button in or out? in
Wedding rings on or off? on
Ella: Got to go with me to my dr apt today bc my sitter situation fell through to a sick kiddo. No Big Deal, though, because Ella was amazing. I did bring the Ipad for her to play and she watched frozen for a bit and played her word games but she listened to me pretty well and didn't really stress me out....which was a blessing! Today was also my glucose test so we had to wait longer than we would have for me to drink the yummy drink and then draw blood after an hour. She was a gem.
Mood: Pretty good except for when i'm not in a good mood... ;)
Excitement this week: We set up our Christmas decorations this week so the house is looking a little more merry. I haven't put decor up for a few years because usually I'm gone but since we're here this year I just had to! Hoping to put up a few more things today.
Looking forward to: Making Christmas sugar cookies tomorrow with a friend! I can't wait to eat some! yummmy! Also, Ella has her first dance recital on Friday so that should be interesting. AND meeting baby sister....can't wait!
