baby o vol. 5 [26 weeks]

How far along?  26 weeks, 5 days [as of today, feb. 14th]

How big is baby? TWO whole pounds! and apparently, the length of an english cucumber if you were to stretch her out and measure from top of the head to those little toes.

Maternity clothes? there's only a few items of clothing that are pre-pregnancy clothing now. which means i'm gettin' BIG

Stretch marks?  unfortunately, yes. thankfully- they're only on my lower hips. 

Sleep? still sleepin' like a champ! it's starting to get difficult moving to different positions in the middle of the night, though. 

Best moment last week?  hmm...i guess the random strangers who are beginning conversations with "sooo what are you having??" and then go on to tell horror stories of having a girl in front of my husband. ya..he doesn't need to hear those stories. thanks, though! haha. i wouldn't count this as the "best" moment. maybe more "memorable". OH!!! almost forgot...
last week, i was in costco and some lady goes "not too much longer!!" hmm. this is already starting?? am i that large?? haha little does she know i was only 25 weeks.

Movement?  everyday! i love feeling her wiggle around :)

Food cravings? none any more.

Food aversions? none any more.

Gender? girly girl!

Labor signs? nope! ask me in about 12 or so weeks. :)

Belly button in/out? still about even. the top part will pop out by the end of the day, but it always goes back down by morning.

What I miss: being thin. my normal exercise routine & my normal eating regimen [this big appetite is hard to get used to!] but growing a healthy baby trumps it all! i'm very thankful to be able to have this baby and to have such an amazing pregnancy.

What I am looking forward to: another ultra sound tomorrow! i get a bonus one to check where my placenta is [it was really low at my 20 week ultra sound] and to also get clearer pictures of London's heart. can't wait to see that cute little peanut! but i'm not really looking forward to the glucose test tomorrow. eek! i hate getting blood drawn.

Milestones: almost out of the 2nd trimester. crazy!


  1. You are STUNNING!! Holy were meant to have babies! You make it look so good.

  2. aw, lindsay! don't make me cry! you are so sweet.
