26 Week Bump Update

So I totally for got to update last week. So here is my 25 week bump picture:

25 weeks

Without further ado…26 weeks:

How far along: 26 weeks today!

How big is baby: He is the size of an English Cucumber or about 1 2/3 pounds and 14 inches long!

Stretch marks: Oh yes, baby boy is making me earn my tiger stripes!

earning my tiger stripes (25 weeks)(@ 25 weeks)

Sleep: It is hit and miss here lately. Some nights I get to sleep awesomely, other nights I am lucky to get any.

Best moment this week: I got a Doppler so I could hear baby boy when I was feeling freaked out. The other night I put it on him and he started moving around like crazy! It was one of the first times I got to see him move on the outside of my tummy. Also a few days before that Matt got to feel him kick! The look on his face was priceless, I actually doubled over laughing because of it.

Belly button in or out: still in, I do not think it will pop out, but I could be wrong.

Craving: chocolate milk, spicy foods (doesn’t matter what they are), eggs, hash browns, bacon

What I miss: sleeping on my tummy, and being able to have a glass of wine or a midnight margarita (think practical magic style)

What am I looking forward to: reaching that third trimester milestone

Milestones: The network of nerves in your baby's ears is better developed and more sensitive than before. He may now be able to hear both your voice and your partner's as you chat with each other. He's inhaling and exhaling small amounts of amniotic fluid, which is essential for the development of his lungs. These so-called breathing movements are also good practice for when he's born and takes that first gulp of air. And he's continuing to put on baby fat.
