26 Weeks!

After 6.5 months, finally a little evidence!!

Of course, John Wayne wanted his picture taken too!
* How far along?: 26 weeks
* Total weight gain: about 8 pounds
* How big is baby?: an eggplant! I need to take a new veggie pic!
* Sex: Baby boy!
* Maternity clothes?: yes and no. I love the bella band for letting me wear my normal jeans during pregnancy!
* Stretch marks?: nope
* Sleep?: Pretty decent, I cant complain
* Best moment this week? Popping! I woke up on Saturday morning with a real belly!
* Movement?: oh yeah! All the time and its constantly getting stronger
* Food cravings?: Coke and Raspberry Jello??
* Labor signs?: nope
* Belly button in or out?: Its half way out. Not sure how I feel about this!
* What I miss: Bending over. When I lean forward now, I feel like all of my insides are squished. Sometimes Im getting kicked by Keating because he obviously doesnt like it either.
* What I'm looking forward to: Non Baby Related: Putting up Christmas decortions. Baby related: Getting his room painted. Im such a slacker
* Words of Wisdom: I was told by a few people not to stress out about having a baby. That once he gets here, its natural and you just know what to do. I hope theyre right!!


  1. Even tho nature provides us with the instinct - it is a good idea to get familiar with diapers etc. We practiced putting them on our dog and figured if we could get a diaper on a Jack Russell we would be able to get them on a baby!

    Also read The Happiest Baby on the Block before your baby comes - and practice swaddling!

  2. You look SO good! :) And so happy! And I read the Happiest Baby on the Block book, and it is good! You can get it on Ebay for nothing! There is a video that is helpful too! And I agree with you about bending over...I miss it!

  3. ok, you are by far one of the cutest prenant ladies I have seen. I avoided the camera at all costs when I was pregnant with all 3 of mine...not cute at all:-) LOL! Enjoy every moment. It goes by way too fast!

  4. AWWWW!! You look so GREAT!!!!!!

    Sorry I've been a slacker commenter lately :(

  5. You look pregnant!!! So beautiful!

  6. You look great! But can I just say...8 pounds!?! I am 20weeks and just hit 14pound weight gain!!! My husband and I wake up every morning at 5:30 and work out. I am still able to use the eliptical but I guess I'm lovin' my Banana and Peanut Butter sandwiches too :) Again though...You look great...and def. pregnant :)


I love hearing from you! Thanks for your comments!
