26 weeks (baby #2)



26 weeks - Baby is the size of scallion 


How far along: 26 weeks!
Swelling: No
Stretch marks: No
Sleep: Insomnia seems a little better lately - but the getting up to pee all night is getting old quick
Best moment of the week:  Took Harper to Aquatica this week (Winters in Florida are so brutal). Harper had such a fun time swimming and playing in the sand. I enjoyed laying around, getting some sun, and relaxing with my girl.
Worst moment of the week:  Did my Glucola challenge test this week - drank 50 grams of pure (orange) sugar, sat in a quest for an hour, and had my blood drawn to screen me for gestational diabetes. I don't do well not eating in the morning, so it's safe to say I had to fight like hell to keep that drink down...at least until I got home, when it all came out like the exorcist. Such an awful experience - but, the silver lining is that I PASSED and I am not a gestational diabetic.
Running/Workouts: Running and workouts are good - but I've developed some serious plantar fasciitis in my left food. Talk about ouch!
Missing anything: No
Movement: Lot of kicks and punches - love and cherish each and every one!
Things that make me queasy/recent cravings: Still loving my eggs/avocado breakfast. Lately I've really enjoyed fresh berries and Greek yogurt!
Energy level:  Energy level is moderate - with a side of naps most afternoons
Labor signs: No
Belly button in or out: In
Wedding ring on or off: On
Mood: Radiant
Looking forward to: Counting to work on getting the nursery ready - as you can tell by the pictures this week, we tried out some paint. Unfortunately, it's not the color we were looking for. Hope to get a new color on there this week.
Something surprising about being pregnant with baby #2: I really, truly am enjoying this pregnancy so much. Even with the nausea, aches, pains, urine frequency, etc...it's all just so worth it and so amazing. I sit back and look at my belly as it jumps, and can't help but feel super human to have been given this opportunity to bring a new life into the world.
