Baby Girl Update

My friend Jennifer had this on her blog, and I thought it was such a good idea that I copied it! Well, not her answers of course :o)

How far along: 26 weeks and 3 days

Size of baby: Almost 2 pounds, and about the length of a cucumber!

Totally weight gain/loss: I only weigh myself at the doctor, so as of my last appointment I have gained 12 pounds.

Clothes: I pretty much hate maternity clothes, mainly because I can't find any jeans that fit me! They are all either too big in the hips and fall down, or are too low in the waist causing them to squeeze the baby and again, fall down. I prefer to spend the day in yoga pants, and pretty much only put jeans or nice clothes on when I leave the apartment.

Gender: A baby girl!

Movement: She definitely moves differently than Matthew did. I feel her much lower, usually below my bellybutton, and it feels more like stretching and moving instead of the kicks that Matthew did. Hopefully I won't experience the same feeling of my ribs getting bruised!

Sleep: I am always tired so I sleep a lot! I usually sleep 10 hours at night, and most days have to take a nap while Matthew does. I feel like I'm still in the first trimester, and am really not sure what I'm going to do when I'm up all hours of the night with a newborn!

Symptoms: Aside from the tiredness, I have Braxton Hicks contractions pretty regularly.

Cravings: I cannot get enough cheesy or salty foods! Vegetables, what are those? I have been forcing myself to eat healthy things, but what I really want is pizza and macaroni and cheese.

What I miss: Being able to lay on my stomach, working out without contractions, and wearing clothes that fit!

What I worry about: How am I ever going to give both kids enough attention? How am I going to survive on no sleep with a toddler? And how exactly do you do things with two kids?

What I'm looking forward to: Our 4D ultrasound coming up in a few weeks, and of course meeting our daughter!
