*Disclaimer* I’m retro posting this because I had it all typed up and ready to post on Thursday, but then ended up dealing with kidney pain and a UTI for several days so I never got around to adding pictures and posting
We were on a long weekend trip to the coast last week so I skipped posting. We should be around for the next several Thursdays so I hope to keep on track now.
How far along: 26 Weeks
How big is baby: Size of a butternut squash ~14in/35.5cm, weighing in at around 2lbs
Symptoms: My stomach has been wonky as of late. I think it may be because I forgot to take my heartburn meds for a few days and now the extra acid isn’t sitting well in my stomach. It will take a few days of consistently remembering it to see if that’s the issue. My rest less legs have been pretty good as of late. I’m trying to gather the energy to do a yoga video most nights to help. My back gets more sore these days
Movement: I finally caught one little kick on video for his dads last night. He gets quiet when I’m active just like all the other babies I’ve carried. He likes to have midnight dance parties, fortunately they don’t last too long
Sleep: I’ve been sleeping pretty hard as of late which has been really nice. I’m still up a couple times a night to use the bathroom, but I’ve been able to fall back asleep pretty easily.
Food cravings? Nothing very strong.
Food Aversions? We got hamburgers on the way home from the coast and I only took a few bites. I normally love hamburgers, especially when pregnant, but I just could do it
Anything making you queasy or sick? heartburn, which gets worse when my stomach gets empty
Best moment of the week? Enjoying the coast with the family. It was nice to get away for a few nights.
Next appointment: My next OB appt is Nov. 4th.
