How far along: 26 weeks - less than 100 days left to go!!
Maternity clothes: Yes
Stretch marks: No
Sleep: Sleep is still okay
Best moment of the week: Mini "Babymoon" in Clearwater Beach, Florida. Currently still here and loving the sun, water and relaxation
Worst moment of the week: My horrible work schedule - Working six out of eight 12 hour shifts this past week. Exhausting doesn't even begin to describe it! BUT now I'm enjoy a week off!
Running/Workouts: Running is still doable - difficult but totally doable
Missing anything: Corona light with a lime, especially on the beach
Movement: Sooooo much this week! And I now feel it throughout the day. I've even been able to press down where I felt something and she's kicked right back! Seriously, I've never experienced anything as amazing as her movement
Cravings: Still watermelon
Energy level: Pretty good, but crash hard everyday in the early evening
Labor signs: No
Belly button in or out: In.....but my laparoscopic scar which was inside my belly button is starting to come out...but it's probably my favorite scar because it got us here, so it doesn't bother me in the slightest!
Wedding ring on or off: On
Mood: Happy, emotional at times
Looking forward to: Enjoying the rest of my time off from work
Something surprising about being pregnant: It's mind blowing to me how much parenting advice I've received lately. People (and surprisingly most of them strangers) see that I'm pregnant, and without solicitation start giving me parenting tips. "First baby? Well enjoy your quiet time now because it will never be the same", or things along the lines of "Enjoy getting your nails done now because once the baby is here, you won't be doing that anymore". I wouldn't say it bothers me, but rather I am just kinda surprised how often it happens. I will say that I am well aware our lives are about to change in a way that nothing or no one can prepare us for....and I can't wait!
