Not only is today week 26, but I got a notification on Tuesday that I officially had 100 days until my due date! That means, that from here on out, it’s a double digit countdown to baby 🙂 Every day I get more and more excited to meet her and hold her.
As of now, she’s probably about 14 inches, and about 2ish pounds. People have been asking me when I’m due and seeming surprised I still have a full trimester to go — I don’t think they realize that at 4’11”, the baby has nowhere to go but OUT. I don’t have much torso space for her to take up. The other day someone was so surprised that I’m not due until December that her next question was “oh, is this your second?” No lady, I just have a torso shorter than my baby currently is. She’s gotta go somewhere. But I know they all mean well, it’s pretty funny, honestly.
Bump size: About 39 1/4″, but man it feels like more.
Movement: Excited to say definitely some real movement and stuff happening! I feel her not constantly but definitely often. And she’s getting stronger – the other day she knocked my laptop off my belly.
Cravings/Aversions: Not much new this week. Still lots of hot chocolate even though it’s still so hot.
Mood: Pretty good, but pregnancy brain and forgetfulness are getting worse.
Other Symptoms: I want to remind you all that you are choosing to read this blog. That being said, my biggest symptom this week has been constipation. I was not properly prepared for this. Also, my feet are starting to swell.
And that’s pretty much all for this week! Thanks for reading 😀
