26 weeks

How Far along: 26 weeks

Size of Baby: the length of an English hothouse cucumber (according to baby center) 

Total Weight Gain: 12 lbs. so far...

Gender: ??? 

Movement: Lots of movement this week! I can see the ripples and jerks under my stomach constantly. Feeling the baby move just never gets old. My mom even got to feel it for the first time this week.

Sleep: Sleep is ok. Not bad, not great.

Maternity Clothes: All pants are maternity, regular dresses and tops-although, the regular tops are getting a little short. I just ordered a few long sleeve maternity tops from Old Navy. Hopefully they will get me through the next few months.

Symptoms: I didn't really notice any symptoms this week other than having cramps and feeling tired. Oh, and it's getting harder to put my shoes and socks on.

Aversions: No aversions. 

Cravings: Egg salad. Mary made some for me on Saturday and it hit the spot!

What I Miss: Beer and Wine

Best Moment of the Week: Paul and I finally took a tour of the other hospital in town and made our decision on where I will deliver.
My mom and dad and Bob and Mary (Paul's parents) came to visit for the weekend. On Saturday, my mom, Mary, and I went to Babies R Us in Colorado Springs to check out baby gear. Thanks to that trip and a very helpful email from my cousin, Elizabeth, I have pretty much decided on every item for my registry. The grandmas also bought baby Creighton a super cute pack n play! While we were gone, the grandpas built some storage shelves in our garage.
On Sunday, my parents helped me clean out the dresser and closet in our guest room. It was a big chore, but the room is officially ready to be transformed into a nursery. It felt so good to check some big things off my To-Do list this weekend and I'm so thankful for the Grandparents and all of their help!! This little baby is so loved already :)
