26 Weeks

26 Weeks!

For comparison sake, here I am at 26 weeks with Keating

How far along? 26 weeks! 97 days to go!

Total weight gain: 11 lbs as of my appointment last week, so I'm guessing 12 now?
Maternity clothes? Some, most work clothes are, casual clothes are a mix. I am getting away with longer shirts/ dresses and leggings. I'm starting to remember why I hated maternity pants... because they never stay up and leave you with a saggy butt. I avoid them when possible.
Stretch marks? negative
Sleep: Pretty good despite the constant dance party in my belly!
Best moment this week: This is my last week in 2nd trimester. I can't believe how fast this is flying by! Also, picking out things for Archer's room and starting on a few projects. On a fun note, his little eyelashes are forming this week. Praying for long ones like his brothers!
Miss Anything? I would kill for a giant plate of Ahi Tuna.
Movement: He's kicking as I type. He gets especially active when I hold Keating. Could sibling rivalry be starting already?
Food cravings: Eggs cooked any way, Key lime pie greek yogurt, cherry coke, and orange juice mixed with ginger ale... a faux mimosa if you will...
Food aversions: none
Gender: Boy!!
Labor Signs: none thank goodness. I'm not ready at all!
Symptoms: Besides a big 'ol belly and round ligament pain, not much
Belly Button in or out? Sadly its been out for a long time. I tape it down with athletic tape! True story.
Wedding rings on or off? On. I think my hands actually shrink during pregnancy
Looking forward to: Third trimester and finishing this pain staking baby blanket I have been working on. Archer better LOVE it! =)
Here's a little comparison from week 24. I think I have popped out a good bit since then. My employees are starting to get brave and ask when I am due. Up until now I guess they just thought I was getting fat!
And because I haven't posted any photos of this stinker in awhile... Here is his new "CHEESE" face.


  1. You look great! I'm pretty sure I had gained double that weight when I was preggo with Carter! Do you feel like the second pregnancy is so much different than the first?

  2. you look so cute!!!

    and that cheese face hurts my ovaries.

  3. adorable belly !!!!
