Bumps & Braids: Week 26 & 27
How far along? 26 Weeks
How Big is baby? About as big as a butternut squash! According to one of my apps he is about 14 inches long and weighs about 1.68 pounds!
Weight Gained? Because of my gallstones my weight has been SO weird. Because I have to eat a VERY strict non-fat healthy diet I’m pretty much staying the same weight and losing body fat as baby gets bigger. It’s the ONLY good thing that’s come from these gallstones! 🙈 haha I still wish I could just eat a hamburger and milkshake though 😩
Maternity clothes? I actually still fit in all my normal clothes so besides the maternity leggings and shorts I got from stitch fix, I haven’t had to buy anything new!
Stretch marks? Not yet!
Sleep? With my sister leaving on an lds mission this month we have been out late EVERY night this week doing stuff, so I come home exhausted and fall asleep immediately. It’s actually pretty nice.
Best moment this week? This week I turned 21!! Yay! My hubby and family spoiled me and it was such a great day! I also got to see my little sister go through the temple for the first time as she prepares to serve a mission. It was such a cool experience.
Miss Anything? Fat. HA! What a funny thing to say! But I miss being able to just eat whatever the heck I want. This diet is really good for me, but some days I just really want to have what everyone else is having! 🙁
Movement? Lots and lots of movement!
Anything making you queasy or sick? This week has been pretty good and I haven’t felt sick at all!
Cravings? I’ve been on this no fat diet for so long now that I just crave everything I can’t have. 🙁
Gender? Baby boy
Labor Signs? Starting to have more Braxton hicks but nothing serious.
Symptoms? I’ve been bloated and have noticed a lot more veins are visible on my legs now! I really don’t like that!
Belly Button in or out? It’s slowly turning to an outtie!
Wedding rings on or off? On!
Happy or Moody most of the time? This week has been up and down. I’m mostly happy, but have been pretty moody at times…sorry Brandon. 🙈
Looking forward to? My ward baby shower this week! It’s been so fun getting stuff ready for baby boy and seeing what other people pick out for him!
This weeks braid? This weeks braid is no braid! Lately I’ve been so tired and busy that there’s a chance my hair might not get brushed let a lone braided! 🙈 Yeah perfectly braided hair everyday is SO not real. No matter what bloggers tell you.
It was my Sister’s farewell this week and I forgot to take an actual “bump” picture! I found this one we took at the farewell and almost didn’t post it because I feel like I look SO chubby, BUT I decided to post it anyway because pregnancy is NOT always glamorous and perfect and sometimes you DO look chubby. So I’m just rolling with it (literally!) 😂 Read on for more updates on this week!
How Big is baby? I love that all my apps tell me different things that baby is the size of, but this week one of my apps said baby was as big as a camping lantern and that made me laugh!
Weight Gained? I gained 3 pounds this week!
Maternity clothes? This week I tried wearing my jeans and they totally still fit! So no maternity clothes for me yet!
Stretch marks? None yet
Sleep? I’m uncomfortable and have to pee every two minutes…so it’s not too great. Haha
Best moment this week? My sister had her farewell this week and did such an amazing job. Her talk was beautiful and it was so fun to celebrate her and see lots of family members, especially those who haven’t seen my baby belly yet!
Miss Anything? Sleep 😫
Movement? Lots and lots. He just doesn’t stop moving.
Anything making you queasy or sick? I’ve been so busy this week and just exhausted that I’ve been feeling pretty sick. I just need to rest and sleep more I think!
Cravings? Cookie dough. Man I miss it so much.
Gender? Baby boy still!
Labor Signs? Few Braxton hicks again, but nothing else.
Symptoms? Heartburn like CRAZY!! It’s terrible.
Belly Button in or out? It’s not poking out but it’s kind of just flat now! It’s so weird!!
Wedding rings on or off? On!
Happy or Moody most of the time? It’s been a sad week with my sister leaving so pretty moody/sad this week!
Looking forward to? I might say this every week from here on out, but I’m getting so excited to meet this little guy!!
This weeks braid? I’m wearing the same outfit in this weeks picture as I was in last weeks 😂 so there’s obviously no braid this week either! Oops
