Mommy Mondays: 26 weeks

I'm about to enter the third trimester, and (knock on wood) I'm feeling really good!  I'm in that perfect stage of pregnancy where I'm not uncomfortable, I don't have any symptoms, and I've got that constant reassurance of steady kicks and punches in my abdominal region. 

We've pretty much finished Thatkid's room and so now I can start focusing on the baby's room.  Which is fun, because it's just decor since I've got all the furniture already.

Today is the start of my 2 week OB appointments!  That's a big deal.  Up until now it's been once a month.  Transition time!  Which means I should really get on top of the whole childcare situation!

Today is also my GTT test - the test for Gestational Diabetes.  Which always makes me nervous.  I passed with flying colors last time around, but that really means nothing in terms of how I'll do this time.  Wish me luck!


Total weight gain/loss: +15

Next Appointment: This afternoon!
Maternity clothes? I am going on a shopping spree for maternity clothes.  I had to go to court twice this past week.  I can still get away with most of my suit pants with a bella band.  I tried to wear my brown skirt suit and.....let's just say I won't be doing that again.  It was such an awkward fit when the back rose up.  The second court appearance I couldn't find a good top to wear.  The struggle is real y'all.
Stretch marks: nada.
Sleep: Restless lately.  I miss good sleep, but in truth, it's been years.
Best moment this week: Nothing terribly exciting, just those little moments of sitting on the couch with Thatboy after Thatkid has gone to sleep. 
Movement: Yup.  Now everyone can feel and see it.  Thatboy was uber impressed this weekend with the intensity and frequency.  Plus it's super distracting during work.  And I think the little one had hiccups this week.
Food cravings: Nothing
Food aversions: Nothing
Gender: Not finding out
Belly Button in or out: In.  But it never popped last time, so I'm not expecting it to this time.
What I miss:Running.  But that's more busy work week related than pregnancy related.
What I am looking forward to: Second trimester this week!
Contractions: Not this week
 Milestones: 
- Baby's eyes can open!
- Even though we don't know whether Oppobaby is a boy or a girl, his/her reproductive organs are now in place!  If we've got another little boy on our hands, his testes have now descended into the scrotum.

  1. What would you like it to be? I think have one and one is the best combination!
