How far along? 26 weeks
Size of baby?25 weeks: acorn squash / rutabaga
26 weeks: zucchini / scallions
Total weight gain? I weigh exactly what I did when I found out I was pregnant. I'm not sure how... but since the doctors aren't worried, neither am I.
Gender? GIRL! You can read about it here!
Maternity clothes? Jeans, jean shorts, t-shirts, and maxi dresses! Yep! Oh, and workout pants... because I don't want to stretch my good Nike running pants.
Sleep? I am exhausted. Plain and simple. I did spend a couple days in the hospital during week 26 for a kidney infection, and I got about four hours of sleep total during that time because doctors and nurses were CONSTANTLY checking my vitals, Baby Cookie's heartrate, monitoring if I was having contractions or not (I wasn't), taking blood or urine for testing, changing out fluids and antibiotics in my IV... you get the picture. It sucked, but I'm okay, and Baby Cookie is GREAT!
Work outs? I went with Dan to take Smudge for a nice, long walk after I got out of the hospital, and that felt great, but I was shot afterward. Couldn't have gone any further. We also walked around a festival for a couple hours, and that was tiring, but I'm glad I got some activity in after laying in a hospital bed for a couple days.
Cravings? Chocolate. Cheeseburgers. Pickles. Ice cream. Not all together. Luckily, Dan is husband of the year and obliges me way too often.
Aversions? Still chicken. And cucumbers and tomatoes.
Best moment of this week? Celebrating one year of marriage with my handsome husband!
Worst moment of this week? Being admitted to the hospital again... hands down! Ugh.
Looking forward to? I'm looking forward to going to Kansas City for our baby shower soon! It will be nice to spend time with friends and family and celebrate our little girl!
How on EARTH do you sleep comfortably and for long periods of time while pregnant? HELP ME!
