26 Weeks

26 Weeks!

For comparison sake, here I am at 26 weeks with Keating

How far along? 26 weeks! 97 days to go!

Total weight gain: 11 lbs as of my appointment last week, so I'm guessing 12 now?
Maternity clothes? Some, most work clothes are, casual clothes are a mix. I am getting away with longer shirts/ dresses and leggings. I'm starting to remember why I hated maternity pants... because they never stay up and leave you with a saggy butt. I avoid them when possible.
Stretch marks? negative
Sleep: Pretty good despite the constant dance party in my belly!
Best moment this week: This is my last week in 2nd trimester. I can't believe how fast this is flying by! Also, picking out things for Archer's room and starting on a few projects. On a fun note, his little eyelashes are forming this week. Praying for long ones like his brothers!
Miss Anything? I would kill for a giant plate of Ahi Tuna.
Movement: He's kicking as I type. He gets especially active when I hold Keating. Could sibling rivalry be starting already?
Food cravings: Eggs cooked any way, Key lime pie greek yogurt, cherry coke, and orange juice mixed with ginger ale... a faux mimosa if you will...
Food aversions: none
Gender: Boy!!
Labor Signs: none thank goodness. I'm not ready at all!
Symptoms: Besides a big 'ol belly and round ligament pain, not much
Belly Button in or out? Sadly its been out for a long time. I tape it down with athletic tape! True story.
Wedding rings on or off? On. I think my hands actually shrink during pregnancy
Looking forward to: Third trimester and finishing this pain staking baby blanket I have been working on. Archer better LOVE it! =)
Here's a little comparison from week 24. I think I have popped out a good bit since then. My employees are starting to get brave and ask when I am due. Up until now I guess they just thought I was getting fat!
And because I haven't posted any photos of this stinker in awhile... Here is his new "CHEESE" face.
