26 Weeks Pregnancy Update


I swear the weeks keep flying by faster and faster! I am currently back in my hometown of San Diego, California and I couldn't be more excited. I have so many friends down here that are really more like family. They all wanted to host a baby shower for me and I couldn't wait to come home and see everyone. That is also why this update is a little behind!

How far along: I am 26 weeks and 6 days (in this picture anyways)

How big is baby: The baby is as big as a head of lettuce!

Weight Gain: I was all worried about last week having put on so much weight but when I weighed myself this week I had lost five pounds! haha I really think my bloating from traveling was still hanging on strong, plus, I went to the doctor in the afternoon after having a full breakfast, lunch, snacks and a ton of water. I am starting to think I should not put so much weight into, well... how much I weigh! haha I want to make sure I am being healthy and staying active and not focusing too much on the numbers because there are obviously a lot of reasons why I will fluctuate throughout this pregnancy in regards to the scale.

Sleep: Hit or miss these days! Trevor has been really sweet and spends a few minutes rubbing my back before we go to bed. I asked him one night to do it and he has just kept doing it without me saying anything ever since, I love it :)

Craving: For the first time since being pregnant I feel totally normal about the food I am craving and eating. If anything I am craving much more healthier food, so that is good! haha

Random: I can't stop thinking about what our little girl will look like this week. My mom had some different things out for the baby shower and there were a handful of pictures of me on my baby blessing day. I have seen baby pictures of me a million times but this time I looked at it completely differently. Will she look like this? Will she look like Trevor? Or will she be some new combination of the two of us? I am just so anxious to meet her!

Feeling: So happy to celebrate my baby girl with all my friends and family here in San Diego. It has been such a fun visit so far! I will share more in an actual post about the baby shower and this whole weekend, but right now I just wanted to say that my heart is feeling very full. :)
