26 Weeks

How far along: 26 Weeks 2 Days
Total weight gain/loss: +14.5 lbs. Woah! 4.5 lbs in one week! I guess all those pasta dinners, sneaky Sprites and croissants & muffins are catching up with me.
Stretch marks: None that I can see and none that Kevin has told me about.
Belly Button: Still in but definitely shallower.
Maternity clothes: myMom told me she was going to go shopping for me and I told her not to, I wanted to see how much more weight I put on. Then on Sunday she told me to bring an extra suitcase when I come down at the end of the month because she bought me stuff. Moms!
Sleep: Interrupted sleep still.
Food cravings/aversions: I guess pasta because looking at the past week I've noticed that it's on our menu more. Maybe I need to start buying the whole wheat kind.
Gender: Boy!!! We've gone with this theme for his room.
Movement: Everyday and I can regularly feel it on the outside. Kevin is still pouting because every time he tries to feel something, GV quiets down. Confession: Yesterday during our class (around 7:30pm) GV was kicking and punching up a storm. Then for the rest of the night I didn't feel him. Not while watching Amazing R.ace, eating yogurt (shocker!) or when I got into bed. Those are usually his active times. So during one of the many times I woke up in the middle of the night, I gently moved my belly and then pressed in on a spot he usually goes for. A few seconds later he pressed back! I had this big smile on my face and was able to sleep a lot better!
Best moment this week: Last night when GV responded to me.
What I miss: The sleep of the dead I use to have.
I am looking forward to: Third trimester in 3 days!
Milestones: 65% downloaded!!

I love the poking incident. :-D Too funny. I've been poking my belly too. This poor baby of mine is probably wishing her mama would quick waking her up, but I love the constant reassurances. :-D

I too love the poking...you poke him and he pushes back!! I CAN'T wait to know what that feels like...I know that I might have to wait another 2-8 weeks for that but this momma can hope it comes sooner than later!! :)I love reading your weekly updates...they always get me excited about what's to come with my pregnancy. Can't wait to share u/s pics with you!! Take care...hope you start sleeping better.

I love the theme you chose :) We might be coming over to see my cousins sometime in the next couple of months- I hope we can meet up!!

(And I am jealous of all your pasta- I looove pasta, but it is not one of hubby's favorite meals...)
