Bumpdate Week 26

Wednesday, May 27, 2015

Since I didn't post a bump photo last week because we were on our baby moon, I decided to post them both this week!

Week: 26 - She's the size of a butternut squash this week

Total Weight Gain: right around 13 pounds

Symptoms: Continuing to feel more tired and like a need a nap most days. I'm definitely starting to learn how much I can push myself and when I need to listen and take a rest or at least a break every now and then. Traveling definitely made my exhaustion level much higher & I found it a lot more difficult to get comfortable every night in a hotel bed.

Cravings: Nothing specific, although I'm still loving fresh fruit and can always be talked in to some ice cream after dinner!

Sleep: getting much better. I think I'm just starting to learn to sleep on my side so I'm waking up less to roll off of my stomach. I'm also thinking that I'm sleeping a bit better just cause I've been so much more tired lately.

Clothes: All maternity. Been trying to hunt for something to wear for maternity photos in a few weeks and my upcoming showers. Online shopping and maternity clothes just aren't always a girls best friend so I've been ordering a few things and hoping some of them will work when they get here.

Workout: My workouts this week mostly consisted of the miles we put in walking around vegas. I tried to keep my fuel band on every day, except for when we were headed to the pool so I could track my fuel points.

Nursery: It's slowly coming together! Our glider came this week and we got all the major pieces put in place in the room (after an hour or so of me sitting in the room completely undecided on where I wanted everything). Dan says he's waiting a while longer before hanging any decor so I have time to change my mind if I want (smart man).

Movement: She's moving all over all the time! It's so fun now that Dan is able to feel her and see her move around.

Best Moment This Week: Getting away for our baby moon. It was so nice to have the time together and be able to relax away from work for a few days!

Missing: a drink every now and then. Being in vegas around everyone who was drinking made it rough, but I'd order my Shirley Temple and pretend I was having a tasty cocktail!

  1. You look great! I'm glad the baby moon was enjoyable :)

  2. You're glowing!! I hope you two had a fabulous time in Vegas! Oh, and I agree. Online maternity shopping is not the easiest. I've had to return a few things that I was really excited about ordering.

  3. My first thought was "Vegas - I'm so jealous!" I'm so glad you had a great time! :) And yay that nursery progress is slowly but surely coming along! The glider will be a big one when it comes in! I find myself rocking in it every chance I get! It's so surreal!

  4. I love how all your bumpdate pictures have been the places y'all have been traveling and visiting the last few weeks! They'll be so sweet to look back on. So glad y'all had a ton of fun. I never thought of Vegas as a "vacation" town and you totally changed my mind! Looking beautiful mama!

  5. Looking great! Hope you enjoyed Vegas!
