6 1/2 Months Pregnant

Yesterday marked 26 Weeks pregnant! It feels like I have been pregnant forever. The other day my husband reminded me that I feel that way because I have already been pregnant for about 10 months (I had a miscarriage in January and then became pregnant again 2 weeks later) which totally makes sense why I feel so deprived of my normal life lol. This week our little girl's eyes have opened and she can see. She now the size of a head of lettuce and there is nearly 2 lbs of baby in my belly. I don't feel like I'm carrying around 2lbs of baby but my back sure does take a toll on me after standing for long periods of time.

I had a rough week this week of not feeling that good. I was out shopping all day Saturday and wasn't feeling too hot the next day or a few days later. I had an awful migraine that kicked in Monday, body aches and no appetite. I stayed in bed and slept most of the day. My husband brought home 7Up and soup for me that night and it was pretty much the only thing I could stomach all day. The following day I felt a little better but the migraine was still lingering so I stayed home from work again and caught up on more rest. I’m feeling much better now. I’m hoping my body was just undergoing a lot of change this week and that I won’t have to experience feeling like that again. This is the last week of my second trimester. I’m a little nervous of what the third trimester is going to bring! One thing I’m proud of thus far is my consistency with working out. I worked out nearly every day during my first trimester and at least 4/5 days a week during my second trimester. If the third trimester gives me a hard time at least I can say I worked out a majority of my pregnancy and be proud of that.

Our little one’s nursery is just about done! My wonderful husband did such an amazing job on her room! I’m hoping to share pictures with you guys soon. I’m so in love with the crib and dresser we decided on. Oh, and my new glider, it’s just perfect! Her room is done in a light gray and white and is suppose to have light pink accents but we haven’t added any pink just yet. I need to find the perfect light pink curtains still.

Today I scheduled an apportionment for our 4D ultrasound. It’s scheduled for August 18th when I’m 29 weeks and 4 days. I wanted to do it at 32 weeks but unfortunately we have something going on almost every weekend for a month straight. We also wanted our family to be able to make it so we had to schedule it when they could come too. We are so excited to see our little one up close and personal. I wonder who she will look like.

Our 5 years wedding anniversary is coming up on August 23. Normally my husband and I go on a big vacation for our anniversary. Last year we went to South Africa and decided that we were ready to settle down and start a family. Now here we are a year later starting a family. It feels weird not having a vacation planned for once in 7 years we have been together. A few days ago my husband sent me a text saying he just booked a mini getaway for us on our anniversary weekend but he’s not telling me where we are going. So excited to just get away, even if it’s just for a few days and especially if it means alone time relaxing with the one I love. After all, this will be our last little getaway for quite some time.

How far along: 26 weeks (6 1/2 months)

Weight Gain: Last time I went to the doctor I was up a total of 12 lbs. My next appointment is on August 5th so we will see where I'm at then.

Stretch Marks: None although I had a horrible dream that I had them lol

Belly Button: Still In preparing its self to go flat in another month or so.

Wedding Rings On/Off: - On

Movement: She rolls around a lot and I swear she's sideways in my stomach because she also kicks my left side when I switch sides during the middle of the night. There’s definitely a head on my right side (that’s where I feel the big rolling movements) and just today she decided to park herself right under my rib. She’s definitely more active during the day than at night. I rarely feel her at night. If this is a sign of her sleeping habits once she’s born then YIPPY!

Feeling: Better than I was at the beginning of this week now that the migraines have stopped and my energy levels are back up again.

Cravings: Still not craving much of anything. I still continue to eat as healthy as I can.

Symptoms: Bad migraines a few days this week. I'm not sure if the flu or if I was just going through a phase but the beginning of this week was just awful. I feel great now.

Missing: Being comfortable. I feel really uncomfortable when sitting, sleeping and walking for long periods.

Looking forward to: Our 4D ultrasound in the next couple of weeks and our little getaway!

Sleep: Hasn't been the best this week. Lots of tossing and turning at night to try and get comfortable.
