26 Weeks!

I have done a terrible job at taking and posting regular belly pics. Luckily I had a few saved on my phone. Hopefully over the next 14 weeks I will be able to remember to take and post weekly belly pics and general pregnancy updates. 

I won't try to recap my entire pregnancy, so I will just jump in with this week. My newest symptom is back pain. I have found the best place to sit in our apartment is in the recliner. It supports me better than the couch or bed. I would not be surprised if I ended up sleeping there towards the end. The past few nights have been fitful sleep. Sleep a little, rearrange. Sleep a little, rearrange. Get up and potty. Repeat. 

As far as heartburn goes, I hadn't had any until I told my sister-in-law (who is also pregnant and is struggling with heartburn) that I hadn't had any. Then, of course, I woke up that very night with it! Haha, oh the irony. I was awake for two hours debating whether the jalapenos in my frito pie were worth it or not. (they probably were, yum!) Since then I have only had mild heartburn a time or two. KNOCK ON WOOD! Here's hoping it stays that way. 

I had my glucose test last week. It wasn't too bad. We haven't heard back from that, so I am going to assume no news = good news.

Even though all pregnancy "symptoms" are really complaints, I am absolutely loving being pregnant. All of the symptoms/complaints are 100% worth it. Feeling a sweet little baby bumping around inside of me is such an amazing feeling. I am enjoying feeling him get stronger and stronger as the days go by. 

And now, some belly pictures!


Lately I have been thinking about labor, a LOT! It is a pretty large event looming in my future! I have read all of the labor and delivery chapters in my two pregnancy books. I think I may go to the library and check out another book to read. It really is one of those things that you really don't know what it will be like until you have experienced it. I am nervous and excited all at the same time. 

I am sure at some point in time I will blog about something besides pregnancy and baby stuff. But probably not for a while! That is what is consuming my life and this blog is about my life. So settle in for the long haul or skedaddle! 

14 weeks to go!
