How i'm feeling: good... really love being pregnant & haven't had too much discomfort... yet. :) A little self conscious, but what pregnant woman isn't?
How far along: 26 weeks and one day
Size of the baby: estimated at 14 inches and 1.7 pounds
Total Weight Gain: about 10-11 pounds
Maternity Clothes: AG Jeans from Pea in a Pod, they were my splurge several weeks ago, but I love 'em. Still wearing regular shirts and work out clothes.
Gender: a GIRL... Andie! #andielesh
Movement: oh my goodness, tons! This girl loves having dance parities in my belly. I can't get enough of it. She did hit my ribs for the first time yesterday - but I love feeling this girl wiggle around!
Sleep: I am getting plenty... but still up quite often through the night and an early riser!
What I miss: this week... running. I miss being able to go for long runs with my music. But soon enough it'll be back in my life.
Cravings: fruit & veggies. and thanks to my cousin, Greyson, whole foods gelato. (yum!)
Symptoms: just some slight discomfort in the mornings and evenings. But truly, nothing major!
Best moments this week:
+ going shopping with my sister, Kel, for items for the registry. my sister is a pro and helped immensely.
+ before TL left for work he kissed my belly and said "bye Andie"... our text message convos about her are priceless.
+ all of the fun goodies Andie's grandmas are picking out for her. she is one lucky little lady.
+ having a few strangers stop me about being pregnant
+ visiting my girlfriends in LA and the incredible surprise shower they threw for us!
Looking forward to:
+ a few more nursery items set to arrive in the next couple weeks (one on Thursday)
+ our "babymoon" adventure... and just getting away. my mind will love a refreshing break and I could really use some quality time with my guy.
+ the baby shower my sisters are working so hard on planning (it's a ways off, but still!)... I am so grateful for them and can't wait to spend an afternoon with people who mean so much to me!
We are getting so close to the 3rd trimester... it's so hard to believe! Less than 100 days :)
