26 weeks and counting!

How far along? 26 weeks

Total weight gain/loss: 21 #'s total

Stretch marks? Nope not yet!

Sleep: Sleeping a lot. Lots of naps, I am just so exhausted the past few days.

Best moment this week: Not Baby related, but surprising Corey at his party!

Movement: "pedaling" I heard about this earlier this week, but I felt it last night. It is so cool, like the baby is taking little steps! He starts about 2 inches above my belly button and ends about an inch below, with 3-4 little steps in between!

Food cravings: Grapefruit, fruit salad, strawberries

Labor Signs: Nope. (Lets keep it that way for another 9 weeks at least, please!)

Belly Button in or out? Flat, but not out yet!

What I miss: Sleeping Comfortably!

What I am looking forward to: Being done with these Dr.s appointments - Being in labor and having our baby. Seriously, I cannot wait.
- My baby Shower! - L & D classes - they start next week in 8 days to be exact!

How big is baby: Your baby's current height and weight (about 10-11 inches tall and two pounds), and at the rate he or she is growing, your baby will soon be feeling a little cramped in your uterus. Not to worry, there's still plenty of room for your baby to grow. It just means your gymnast will have less room for those somersaults, cartwheels, and other Olympic feats. Look what else is going on this week: Your baby's brain-wave activity is kicking in at this stage in fetal development, which means your little one can not only hear noises but can now also respond to them. Not in so many words, of course, but with an increase in pulse rate or activity. Your baby is able to see what's going on now (unfortunately the view in your uterus isn't all that exciting). But do try this at home for kicks (baby's that is): Shine a flashlight at your stomach. Your baby might kick in response (as in: "Get that light out of my eyes!").

Brodys Room:
We get the new changing table today! And the room will be complete (well besides the turtle decals from Etsy and Brody, of course!!!)
