26 Week Baby Update

Due Date? October 2nd

How far along? 26 weeks today

How big is baby? a foot long and just under 2 pounds--the size of a large zucchini.

Weight gain? +18.5 I think--but that is using my home scale not the doctors. Official weigh-in will have to wait until my doctors appointment in 2 weeks

Maternity clothes? Yeppers! Finally got some shorts...which is good because it has been HOT!

Stretchmarks? nope

Sleep? Still fighting restless legs. I have a hard time falling asleep.

Best moment this week? We were finally able to get in the pool this past weekend! Yay for getting a tan! :oP

Movement? This babe is a strong little kicker!

Food cravings? Nothing specific. Just hungry all the time.

Gender? Team Green!

Labor signs? nope.

Belly button in or out? in

What I miss? Laying and sleeping on my stomach. it was nice to float in the pool because I was able to lay on my stomach! It is also getting pretty difficult for me to lay Colson down in his crib. :o(

What I am looking forward to? the 3rd trimester.

Milestones? Almost to the third trimester. UNDER 100 DAYS TO GO! Man, time is flying!

Next doctor's appointment? July 8th--which will put me just shy of 28 weeks.

Here is my bump picture.


  1. Looking good! I am jealous you have had two kids already and no stretch marks!

  2. You look great!!! I give you major kuddos for sticking to not finding out what you are having!! I wish I had that kind of willpower, but I sure don't! haha

  3. Um, I'll get a bump pic soon as I'm sure I'm as big as you! I heard the intern say something about measuring 16 weeks at my 13 week apt.....
    Yeah, as much as I dispise swim suits getting in the pool last weekend was nice.
    It's going to be sad as it gets harder to put the kiddo in her crib. :/

  4. Loooove that tank top!! Where did you get it?!


I'd love to hear from you!! :o)
