How far along? 26 weeks 1 day
Baby’s Size: About 14" long (the length of an english cucumber) and a pound and two-thirds.
Total Weight Gain: around 13lbs, holy cow!!!!
Maternity Clothes: Exclusively...I really need more pants for work though.
Movement: Oh yeah, I love watching him move at night!
Sleep: Terrible. I got out the snoogle and now I use that every other night because it gives me aches in the morning after using it so I need a day off in between uses but it really helps to get comfortable.
Symptoms: Uhmm...I've been nauseous some and insanely hungry again. I've been waking up this week and NEEDING to eat, I can feel my tummy gurgling before I even get out of bed.
Best Moments this week: I married the love of my life after 7 years! It was wonderful. Jessica made me a beautiful bouquet and we all went to dinner, complete with a cake!!!! ANNNNDDDD Baby K's cardiologist doesn't believe he will have HLHS anymore and may not even need a cardiologist at birth, YAY!!!!!!
Food Aversions: don't really think anything
Food Cravings: Sweet things at night, I need another tub of cookie batter to make cookies!
What I miss: bending over
What I am Looking forward to: We have our monthly growth scan on Monday, I'm very scared because the only thing the cardiologist did say is that Baby K is measuring small for his gestation...babies with this condition are known to be failure to thrive (like a 2yo who just got to 10lbs) which is why I need monthly growth scans because if he stops growing then I'll need to deliver. Keeping our hopes up though!
Milestones: Almost the third trimester, thank you baby Jesus!!
