How Far Along? 26 weeks
Maternity Clothes? Now that I'm back to work I'm wearing my new maternity pants and realizing I will definitely need more shirts! The t-shirts I've been wearing all summer that now chronically creep up are not going to cut it here!
Stretch Marks? No. Still hoping to avoid those! But I have a random spider vein on my thigh now. Hate it.
Sleep? Sucky this weekend! Had a bout of Restless leg syndrome that kept me up to 5am on Saturday night- I think I may have identified the culprit: Zantac (heartburn prescription from OB since Maalox gave me diarreah!!). Will be avoiding that now but that leaves me with uncontrollably painful gross heartburn at night. Woke up a zillion times sunday night with stomach acid mini-barfs. Gross gross gross! Trying to sleep being more propped up with pillows now. Not too comfy. Last night I caved and took a sleeping pill to get myself to sleep so I could function at work today.
Best Moment of the Week? Seeing people oooh and ahhh over my pregnant belly at work. But now it's been a week of that and I'm over it and sick of making small talk with people who would otherwise not even talk to me! oh well!
Movement? Alot. And now I can feel it when I'm walking around and doing stuff and not just focusing on it sitting still. I love to watch my tummy make alien movements! My sisters saw/felt it this weekend too which was awesome!
Food Cravings? Not really.
Gender? We'll get another look and hopefully confirm that she is in fact a girl soon!
What I miss? Sleeping in. Not working. hmmm....but nothing pregnancy related!
What I'm looking forward to? Passing Glucose test next week (Yes...I plan on passing! I am not good at "dieting" and would HATE the diabetes diet!) and my OB appt on Monday!
Weekly Wisdom: I'm pretty brain dead this week...blaming lack of sleep!
Milestones: I had to take out my belly button ring. It started ripping out and really hurting. I am contemplating getting a "maternity ring" for it but I have to order it online and getting stuff shipped to Canada sucks. Duty, taxes, fees...ugh. I don't want it to grow in though!
Emotions: I'm edgy. Irritable. Tired? I'm not being the "nicest" to my hubs which I feel bad about and will make more of an effort to be nicer! Husbands are just the easiest ones to take it out on (whatever "it" is!) Sometimes I can't even figure out what i'm pissed at. Can I blame it on hormones? Or maybe I'm really just a bitch. :( Poor hubs.
Here are a bunch of week 26 belly pics, clothed belly, bare belly and Cosmo loving the little belly shelf to rest his head on! ha ha!
Have a great week everyone!
