Second Pregnancy :: Week 26

Second Pregnancy :: Week 26

Age of baby #1:
18 months (which will make them ~21.5 months apart)

How far along:
26 weeks

How big is baby:
the size of a head of lettuce

Weight gain:
5 lbs. (for a total weight gain of 20 lbs.) – major growth spurt!!!

Maternity clothes:
Lots of maternity jeans, yoga pants and over-sized sweatpants.

Stretch marks:
None yet.

Belly button:

Sleep has been a little better than it was last week.  Once I get things squared away with the house in Atlanta (almost there), I’ll feel a million times better!  Then all I’ll have to stress out about is catching up on papers.

Best moment of the week:
Maybe finding a name we both love. Maybe.

Food cravings:
It’s not food, but I’ve all of a sudden been on a major lemonade kick. It’s delicious!

Food aversions:

Heartburn. Heartburn. And more heartburn. Oh, and the inability to workout whenever I want to (as evidenced by my failed attempt on Saturday morning when I went to the gym and came back 10 minutes later because I literally couldn’t move my body and felt like I weighed 100 extra pounds…every day is different though because on Sunday, I felt light as a feather…well, a feather with 20 extra pounds on it).

Still moving and shaking like it’s her job.


What I’m looking forward to:
MEXICO without Abby…we had originally planned on taking her with us but then my parents offered to fly out to SF to hang out with her.  We’ll miss her terribly, but it’s the last time we’ll have alone time before we become a family of four…I think we’ll manage to enjoy ourselves…

What I’m nervous about:
Having two kids and not having my parents live 10 minutes away. I try not to think about it too much, but when I do, it makes me VERY nervous knowing how much they helped me with Abigail when she was a newborn. Ahhh!!! Moving on…

What I miss:
Feeling athletic.

Next appointment:
August 22nd. Oh, and my appointment last week went great.  Beanette is a rock star so far!

    Aw! You popped! I love it!
    I took Zantac everyday (Dr told me to) 150 mg when pregnant. Have you tried that? I popped one every morning, and it was the only way I could deal with the heartburn. Otherwise I was taking Tums like candy.
    I can’t wait to hear her name!

    You look marvelous!!! It will be fun to see if Beanette is a bigger baby than Miss Abigail.
    Mexico will be great for all 🙂
