Pregnancy Journal – 26 Weeks Pregnant

This past week flew by! I can’t even really remember what we did all week! I was off of work for four days straight but not feeling tthe greatest so nothing really got done around here. More about that below. 26 weeks pregnant, already!? Can you believe how fast this is going? Baby will be blessing us with her presence before we know it!

About Baby This Week: (from BabyCenter.com) The network of nerves in your baby’s ears is better developed and more sensitive than before. He may now be able to hear both your voice and your partner’s as you chat with each other. He’s inhaling and exhaling small amounts of amniotic fluid, which is essential for the development of his lungs. These so-called breathing movements are also good practice for when he’s born and takes that first gulp of air. And he’s continuing to put on baby fat. He now weighs about 1 2/3 pounds and measures 14 inches (about the size of a scallion) from head to heel. If you’re having a boy, his testicles are beginning to descend into his scrotum — a trip that will take about two to three days.

How am I feeling? Well, I’ve been fighting a cold or the flu or something. I’ve been even more tired than normal (if that is possible) and having absolutely no energy. As I mentioned earlier I was off of work for a four day weekend and I didn’t feel like getting anything done. I overdid it one day and paid for it the next but the other two days I was just plain lazy…not feeling like doing anything. 🙁 Heartburn has returned full force. It’s been BAD.

Food Cravings/Aversions: I had a craving for pizza over the weekend. I’ve been wanting milk every night, which actually helps tremendously with my heartburn. Nothing that I can say I’ve HAD to have though.

Sleep: Last week I mentioned I was finally getting some better sleep with the help of my Sealy Maternity Pillow…well, Saturday night I had a bad night. I couldn’t sleep. I was tossing and turning. I was so tired but I was just laying in bed wide awake. I’ve had a few of those nights this past week. Not fun and I pray they do not last.

Baby’s Movement: I still feel her mostly at night. Her movement seems to be getting stronger and happening more often. <3

Weight: I haven’t weighed myself this week but at my doctor appointment Thursday I hadn’t gained any weight.

Next Appointment: I now go every three weeks so my next appointment will be the week of Thanksgiving.

What happened this week? Nothing really. Maybe I am just super tired as I am writing this and I am drawing a blank…but nothing is coming to my mind at all.

Something that upset me: I don’t even recall being upset this past week. Maybe it just went way too fast that I just can’t remember anything!? LOL

Something I am looking forward to: The circus is this week!!!  I can’t wait to see the excitement on the kids’ faces! I know they will love it! Kinda crazy…but I have a Ragababe diaper addiction and they are having a stocking either Friday or Monday and I’ll be able to get a diaper for baby A! Yay!!!!

Boy or Girl? Those strong feelings I had early on about gender proved to be right!!! We’re having a girl!!!!!!!!

Things I am doing to prepare: I haven’t done anything this week. The weekend was rough in terms of how I was feeling and that’s when I usually get things done.

Countdown: I’m at 26 weeks pregnant, so 14 weeks to go if we go to 40 weeks!
