I totally forgot to update and take pictures at 25 weeks but its pretty much the same for both weeks.
How far along? 26 Weeks
Total weight gain: not sure, I have my next prenatal appointment on Monday.
Maternity clothes? yes mixed in with regular things. I’ve been able to get away with still wearing non maternity things thanks to long fold over skirts and pants, maxi dresses, and just going up a size then what I normally wear.
Stretch marks? I feel like I have a few on my hips but they are faint and they are not “new” and honestly I’m sure its one of those things that only I can tell.
Sleep: I wake up every night to pee and I’m usually up intermittently through the night but able to fall back asleep fairly easily. Thinking about getting a body pillow.
Best moment this week: Going to the Jason Aldene concert at Fenway and feeling her kick through some of the songs.
Miss Anything? I did miss being able to have a beer at the concert on Saturday, it was a completely different experience going to a concert pregnant but I guess it paid off because the security let me go down to the floor level!
Movement: Everyday now. Jarod has even felt her a few more times, although usually she just stops when he’s trying to feel her. I notice her when I’m sitting down, before bed, after I have something sugary, and in the bath.
Food cravings: I have wanted ice-cream lately but that’s something I want every summer, we’ve been getting it at least once a week!
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope
Symptoms: some upper back pain here and there, but usually stretching and switching to a different position will help. I’ve notice some swelling in my legs feet during these really hot humid past couple of days but I just have to sit down for a bit and it goes away.
Belly Button in or out? In but laugh at how it looks
Wedding rings on or off? on, but I can feel my hands swelling in the heat/humidity
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy! although I am starting to feel more emotional lately, I watched a commercial and cried…what a baby.
Looking forward to: The baby shower at the end of the month and the end of my 2nd trimester, time is flying by!
Since I’ve been pregnant I’ve been reminiscing about the things I loved doing when I was a kid and what I want to do with our little girl someday.
One of my favorite memories in berry picking in the summer. Me and my brothers would go with my mom to farms to pick all kinds of berries and when my grandmother was up from Florida for the summer we would watch them make Jam. As I got older I was able to help in the process more than just picking and now I do it all.
Last Thursday I went to Turkey Hill Farm and picked both Blueberries and Raspberries
Just like scents, certain tastes bring back memories, fresh picked berries are defiantly one of those tastes!
I had to buy already picked Strawberries since I was a few weeks too late for the good Strawberry picking.
7:00 am Friday Morning my mom and I started the Jam process
and by 11:00 we had all Blueberry, Raspberry, and Strawberry Jams complete.
By the end of the day my Canning cabinet was almost full.
I’m planning on doing Bread and Butter pickles and canned tomatoes with my mother at the end of the summer.
Still getting in my prenatal yoga every Tuesday night.
