For my 30th birthday, I offer up a bumpdate because, what’s better than being 26 weeks pregnant on your 30th birthday?! But seriously, we woke up this morning to a 2-hour delay for Ryan on post due to ice, a happy baby and a morning with a cup of coffee in bed…it really doesn’t get better than that!
How far along: 26 weeks
Size of Baby: A head of lettuce
Gender: We’re not telling – but we do know…and we’re thrilled!
Weight Gain: My scale taunts me daily. If I go by the first weight I had at the doctor at 6 weeks, I’m up 16 lbs. It’s okay…I’m dealing 😉
Movement: Oh yes! Ryan’s seen the peanut dance through my dress at skirt, and this bean seems to think that early mornings are now the best time of day to let mama know that they are having a blast in there.
Sleep: I sleep like the dead, and it’s wonderful! I do have the weirdest dreams though. Last night, for example, I was aboard the star ship Enterprise, which crashed into the water off a cliff and turned into a cruise ship, which then proceeded to sink at port. I think I should quit working in cruising.
Workouts: Working out has become a bit of a painful topic with my. I’ve had very bad sciatic nerve and round ligament pain this time around, which seems to force me to cut my runs short. I try to run about 5 miles total a week now, and I do a mix of yoga and walking to supplement.
Maternity Clothes: My pants are all maternity. All my tops are normal. I’ve got a penchant for long shirts anyway, so it works out 🙂
Cravings/Aversions: Baby does not want spinach. Baby wants pizza…all. day. long.
Best Part of the Week: I finally got out for a run two days ago, and it was amazing. It was slow, and it felt like poo, but moving felt like such freedom again. This mama can’t wait to put the miles back on her legs!
Can’t Wait For: Oddly enough, I can’t wait for my glucose test. That bugger is looming over my head this time around haha
