26 weeks | Baby Sweets

Wednesday, January 9, 2013

Self esteem needed a boost, so I made time to do my hair and a pretty necklace. #26weeks with #baby3 and I'm loving her now visible kicks! #pregnant #pregnancy #babybump #babysweetsbabybump #bumpstyle #maternityootd

How far along: 26 weeks. [26 with Ezra]

How big is baby: Head of lettuce at 13.6-14.8 inches and 1.5-2.2 pounds. 

Weight gain/loss: After a weekend chowing down with some of my favorite blog girls, I’m holding the line at 18 lbs.  

Stretch marks: After two pregnancies, I somehow still don't have any. 

Sleep: I’m really hoping it was just a fluke, but I woke up no less than 8 times last night. I’m one tired mama. I really hope I don’t get caught up with pregnancy insomnia.

Diet/Cravings/Aversions: For about 3 weeks hummus tasted good to me . . . and now it’s awful again. I think my Claussen pickle craving has run it’s course, even though they thankfully still taste fantastic, I just don’t desire them as much as before. I’m starting day 3 of clean eating again and feel so much better! I love eggs to start my day, as they’re so filling and I made two big batches of soup for Tony and I to bring as lunches.

Movement: I’m feeling regular movement now, but still not quite hourly.

What I'm loving: Seeing Baby Sweets kick. 

Symptoms: Heartburn, insomnia, moodiness, fatigue, sore boobs, weight gain . . . you know the usual. I’m just so tired right now. I’m so thankful to be able to take the bus in again, as I’m often napping on the way in and the way home.

What I'm looking forward to: I guess I’m just really not geared up for anything right now. Our social calendar is clear and there aren’t any upcoming milestones.

Best moment of the week: Meeting Julia, Erin and Diz for the first time at the Wisconsin Dells. But there will be more to come on that 
. . . 

How I'm feeling: The past few weeks have been hard, just all around very difficult on my body image and mobility. This unfortunately has a direct impact on, oh, well just about everything. I could wake up to the most perfect day, but physically, how I feel right now, I just can't shake it and it results in negative feelings.

Love this update but hate that you feel crappy. I'm sorry. Hopefully those days will pass... That girl is sucking all of the good from you! Emie made me feel that way too...

If nothing else, you look great!

Molly said...

No more pickles? I really hope I have a pickle craving in my next pregnancy. Yep, I said next :)

I hope you start to feel better soon. Maybe you'll catch a break. I've heard many mamas feel great in the beginning of their third trimester.

I'm jealous of your napping on the bus! I also can't wait to hear more about the Dells!

Also, I'm sorry you're feeling crappy :( That 25-30 weeks is the hardest part of pregnancy for me, mentally!

I hope you get to feeling better, Leah. I'm sorry you're having body image issues - that's so hard to deal with. For what it's worth - you are BEAUTIFUL!!!!

How can I give you a pep talk about how amazing you look, with you really believing it??? You looked awesome this weekend as always. But beyond the superficial, you were awesome to "meet" after all of these years, too. Hang in there mama!!

You + green is a match made in heaven!
