26 weeks!

26 weeks down, 14 to go! a little over three months until sweet pea is here [or who knows, maybe even sooner... or later]. this week has been a really good one - I'm feeling great. surprisingly, my back and chest pain have gotten a lot better the last few weeks [fingers crossed it stays that way]. although. I am finding new things super challenging all of a sudden - like getting up off the couch, shaving my legs, and putting my socks/shoes on in the morning. awesome. My center of balance is definitely out of whack, oh yeah and I have a basketball shaped belly. Speaking of basketball shaped belly - I got measured at the doctor yesterday morning [for the first time] and I'm measuring on schedule... which I wanted to tell [along with a few other choice words that I shared on twitter yesterday] to the asshat that asked me yesterday when I was due and followed up with "wow, you're big for having so long to go - is it twins?!" I just smiled and said no and let the elevator doors close. people?! really.

all in all, a great week - the nursery is coming together, my husband is uber supportive, I still fit in my shoes and wedding rings, sweet pea has taken up water aerobics in my uterus and keeps me company all day long, oliver is sweet as can be and being better behaved this week. life is good. now, I'm excited for a relaxing weekend with my lovie and lots of cuddletime with him and the pup. last night was just what I needed: couch, sweatpants, cuddles, and Big Bang Theory on DVD. today and tomorrow hopefully will be right up the same alley....

26 weeks bumpin' bump...

26 week stats & photos:
  • baby j is the size of an "english hothouse cucumber" aka 14 inches and weighs in at around a pound and two-thirds. she's also starting to inhale and exhale amniotic fluid... aww. 
  • I think I felt her have hiccups the other night - there was this repeating "thumping" going on in a very set pattern for a few minutes... not going to lie, it was pretty cool.
  • I've also seen my stomach move from the outside a few times with her big kicks - INSANE.
  • my doctors appointment this morning went well - everything was normal and on track... and I get to go back in two weeks for my gestational diabetes test, fun fun fun!
  • I got new prenatal vitamins - gummies... they're the best tasting vitamins I've ever had and I'm quite sad I didn't have these for the past 26 weeks. I love them!

You look great! I am not far behind you and people have been asking if I'm having twins since about 16 weeks. SHUT UP PEOPLE, for real! Shaving and putting on socks/shoes are an olympic sport, ah! Your dog is TOO cute!
