Baby Barrett 26 Weeks

How Far Along: 26 Weeks

Size of the baby: Baby Barrett is now the size of a cucumber, approx.. 15 inches long & approx 2.2lbs.

Total Weight Gain/loss: I have gained 10lbs (as of my last doctors appointment, I don't really want to get on the scale at home).  My belly is  growing everyday.  I swear when I wake up the morning it has grown overnight.

Maternity Clothes:  I can still wear some of my longer shirts, but most of my pants are now maternity or stretchy yoga pants.  However, I have found that now that my belly is bigger I can use the belly band to hold up some of my non maternity pants, yay for more wardrobe options =).  I am still totally in LOVE with leggings and sweaters. 

Gender: SURPRISE!! We are not going to find out till Baby Barrett arrives in May!  We have lots of guessing going on in the family, right now we are pretty split.

Movement: Definitely have been feeling movement.  Baby B is moving all day long now.  It is such an amazing feeling to feel baby flipping and kicking all day long.  Hubs loves to feel Baby B move.  First thing he does in the morning is roll over and poke at my stomach until Baby B kicks his hand.  I would be mad because usually I am still trying to sleep but he starts laughing so much I don't have the heart to be upset =)  This weekend, I also got to share Baby B's movement with the family, it was quite amazing!

Sleep: Not so bad.  I am obsessed with my new pregnancy body pillow.  If you are pregnant and don't have a snoogle run out and by one.  

What I miss: Not having smells literally have me running for the bathroom.  Not getting heartburn.  

Cravings: Ummm... I am back to Mexican food once again.  Apparently Baby B is going to be quite a fan =)

Symptoms: Actually nothing new this week.  I went and did my 3 hour glucose tolerance test today, which was not as bad as I had expected given the rumors I had heard.  But I am definitely glad it's over and hope that I pass so I don't have to do it again =)

Best moment this week: Sharing Baby B's movement with my whole family on Saturday night.  It was so amazing to have everyone get to feel Baby B move.  And even more amazing to see the smiles and joy spread across their faces each time they felt a kick or a punch.
