26 Weeks - Pregnancy #3

Each Sunday, I'd like to do a highlights post, including a picture, summarizing the differences in my pregnancy from week to week.  I totally "grabbed" this idea from Kelly.  I did this with my pregnancies with Hadley and with Jack, as well, and I still think it is a great way to jot down the things that I don't want to forget later on. 

Pregnancy Highlights:

How far along:  26 weeks

Size of baby:  Baby Girl is a little over 9 inches long (crown to rump)--the size of an  average rutabaga --  13 1/2 or so inches crown to feet

Total weight gain/loss:  At least 16 pounds so far.

Maternity clothes:  Whatever is comfortable and allows me to be on the floor with Jack.  Shorts, shirts, dresses, skirts, pajamas.

Gender:  A sweet baby girl

Movement:  I feel her move quite a bit, but I really feel her when I'm holding Jack.

Sleep:  Sleep has been fine.

What I miss:  Sleeping on my back

Cravings:  Food.  :)

Symptoms:   I've been having some of that back pain that I have had with my previous pregnancies.  It's painful, but tolerable at this point.

Exercise: I've walked a bunch in the neighborhood and down to the park this week.  I even did pilates a few times, as well.

Belly Button in or outBarely in

Wedding ring on or off: On :)

Happy or moody most of the time:   Pretty good :)  The Husband's mom was in town for a few days while my parents were on vacation, so we got to hang out a bunch with her.  She really enjoyed her time with Jack :) The three of us went to the park together, and she took a few pictures.
Yes, yes, I'm rocking the mom ponytail.

My attitude has been better as I focus on the gifts in my life rather than focus on the things that irritate/frustrate/anger/ me.  It's gotten easier every day.

Y'all, The Husband tried (unsuccessfully) to take my picture this afternoon with my phone.  He was being silly, and therefore almost every shot I have is either me blinking or making a weird, questioning face.  This one was decent but not great.  Oh well.  Maybe next week's will be better!



  1. Such precious pictures of Jack Campbell! So glad Sandra was able to spend time with y'all! I know she loved every minute of it. Love you.
