Hey, you lovely lot!
So it turns out that I didn't actually do a 25 week blog post last week. Baby brain has well and truly kicked in. If you do feel as though you've missed a week and want to catch up, you can watch the 25 week video update here.
Moving on to this week, I'm really starting to feel this pregnancy.
How far along? 26 Weeks! So close to the 3rd trimester.
Total weight gain:I doubled checked my starting weight according to my records and I was actually less than I thought I was at the beginning. This means my weight gain is sitting at 15lbs. I'm ok with that.
Maternity clothes? Nope.
Stretch marks? Still no new ones that I've noticed. My old hip ones are definitely noticeable though. Liam asked if they were new ones last night.
Best moment this week: Pretty much finishing our big baby buys. We only really need to get the little easy bits now. Bath stuff, skincare etc.
Miss anything? Sleep, sleep, sleep! I've had a few uncomfortable nights this week, and I've even had a couple of nightmares. Something I've never suffered with before. Our new bed comes today though so I'm half expecting to sleep like a log tonight!
Movement: This little guy is so active! I'm noticing it so much more this week. His quiet periods are getting less frequent and even Liam can see him rolling about from the outside now.
Food cravings: Not that I can think of.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Just bad smells. I have a really weak stomach anyway. Roll on baby sick and poop!
Labor signs: No.
Symptoms: Backache, braxton hicks, heartburn, general tiredness.
Belly button in or out? In, but it really does feel like it may actually pop.
Engagement ring on or off? Off :(
Happy or moody most of the time: Happy, generally. I've had a low mood here and there but that's just down to being grumpy about my backache.Looking forward to: My new kingsize bed! Hello more space!
Hope you all have a fab Friday!
