Bumpdate 2.0: 26 Weeks


Due Date: December 1, 2017

How far along?: 26 weeks

Gender: It's a BOY!

Total weight gain:  This isn't looking good...I think I'm up 24-25 lbs.  

Stretch marks?: None that I've seen!

Symptoms: I think the babe must be laying directly on my bladder because the frequency of my trips to the bathroom {especially at night} is increasing!

Maternity clothes?:  Yes, yes and double yes!

Sleep:  Ugh..pretty sure H is experiencing some separation anxiety with the start of school, and that seems to be impacting his sleep. Plus, he had a fever {from cutting his 2-year molars???} all weekend...so that just added to the issue. Needless to say, we didn't get much rest over the weekend.  Huston and I ended up sleeping on the couch Friday, Saturday and Sunday night...but the little man has slept all night in his crib both nights since then. Sooo...my lack of restful sleep hasn't had anything to do with pregnancy, but I sure do feel like I'm riding the struggle bus and could definitely use a nap!  

Cravings:  Watermelon, watermelon and more watermelon. I ate soooo much watermelon throughout Huston's pregnancy, but now that he is obsessed with it, I haven't really eaten that much this time around because I always save the "sandia" {Spanish for watermelon} for him...until this past week. I've been eating more and more and more because H's preference is now can-a-mel {canteloupe}. I just can't get enough watermelon!

Workouts: Ha! Who has time to workout?!!? A couple of days last week, Huston actually asked to go "walky" in his stroller {usually he wants to walk on his own so it take 45 minutes to get around the block!}, so we ventured out for short walks. Other than that, my only physical activity is constantly chasing after a very busy two-year-old! 

Best/Worst Moment of the Week: The best and the worst moments of the week kind of tie together this week. H came down with a fever last Friday night, and he suffered from it all day Saturday and off and on throughout the day on Sunday {needless to say, I don't think he was too disappointed that he couldn't go to school on Monday!}. That's obviously the worst moment of the week. We are pretty certain the fever was due to teething {cutting 2-year molars} because he never had any other symptoms besides being fussy and clingy to momma...so when his fever broke on Sunday and he seemed to be feeling perfectly well, we took him to the Practice Tee so he could "hit balls." He is seriously obsessed with golf, and just watching him enjoy something that his daddy loves too was the best moment of the week.




Nursery: In all honesty, we've done nothing in terms of preparedness for this sweet baby boy's arrival. After Labor Day weekend we are going to start H's transition to his big boy room upstairs, and then we can get going on design and decor for Baby Boy's nursery!

Movement: Still moving and shaking about the same as he was last week...but I feel like some of his kicks and jabs are more startling these days...almost as if he's kicking harder and making me jump when he moves.

Wedding Rings:  On

Belly Button: In

Looking Forward To: Although I'm incredibly nervous to fly by myself with a two-year-old, I am looking forward to our long weekend in San Diego! H and I leave Friday afternoon to meet Ryan in San Diego for some quality family time...and a visit to the zoo!
