Hi friends! I’ve been so busy lately and haven’t made much time to blog! 🙁 Tommy and I are currently in the process of getting the house all done and ready for the baby. When we moved in we knew we had to paint the entire house so that’s what we’ve been doing the past week or so. We also have been making process on the nursery as well. I can’t wait till everything is all finished and ready.
Size of the Baby: At 26 weeks, he was the size of kale – about 14 inches long and 1.68 lbs!
Total Weight Gain: 16-17 lbs! I’m still feeling good about it but I am hoping the weight gain will slow down a bit soon haha. I haven’t been eating a lot so we shall see.
Gender: A sweet baby boy!
Symptoms: Honestly this has been the hardest thing to track lately. I don’t really have many new symptoms. My feet have been hurting a lot more lately from walking around with so much extra weight. On the plus size, I think my leg muscles are growing because of it as well. 😉 That’s honestly the only symptom I can really think of and for that I am thankful!
Stretch Marks: Nope! I’ve been using Burts Bees Mama Bee Belly Butter (affiliate link), and that seems to have worked so far.
Workouts: I actually have started to do some prenatal workouts off of YouTube the past few weeks. I feel really good about them after I’m done too and they’re not too strenuous so that’s good. I’ve also been super active just moving around all day trying to get the house clean and ready for the baby.
Cravings: The only craving that I get is that I have to have something sweet after dinner. I can go all day without anything sweet and I’m fine but before bed I NEED something sweet. Usually with milk too haha.
Doctor’s Appointment: I switched doctor’s during my 26 week checkup. I mentioned in my last bumpdate that I wasn’t crazy about the idea of having a male OB/GYN. I’m so happy I made the switch and I really like the new doctor I saw last week.
Nursery: We got and put together his crib and dresser! I really wanted to talk some nice pictures of them to add to this post but things have been a bit crazy with all of the painting going on. I will definitely include them in the next bumpdate though!
Tommy is: helping out so much with all of the projects I want to get done. We had a ton of fun putting together the baby furniture (minus a few mishaps)!
Looking forward to: having the house all painted! It’s been so much work and I can’t wait for it to be done!
Best Moments: Definitely putting together the furniture and seeing a little crib in his room! I can’t wait until he’s here!
