How Far Along: 26 Weeks
Size of Baby: About 14 inches long, weights about a 1 2/3 pound now.
Total Weight Gain: 19 lbs
Maternity Clothes: A mix of maternity shirts now. But I realized this week that I need to go shopping for a couple more long sleeve shirts and maybe a couple of more pairs of pants.
Gender: Girl Julianne (who still doesn’t have a middle name)
Movement: All the time. Especially after I eat. So maybe she enjoys food just as much as I do?
What I Miss: Nothing that is earth shattering. I’m now “feeling” bigger and know that I will soon be missing sleep and being comfortable. But for right now, I don’t miss anything.
Cravings: I enjoyed Thanksgiving this week. Didn’t really have any cravings since there was so much food to chose from. I sure enjoyed our turkey and banana bread this week.
Best Moment of the Week: I was scheduled to go to the doctor on Monday, but we had a huge snowstorm so I couldn’t make it. So I was able to reschedule on Tuesday and Justin and Jax drove me down there. Julianne was looking good!
Which at this point, I need to mention that I had a dream a couple nights earlier that the baby was born and it was a boy! In the dream I was so upset we didn’t have a name for him. I mentioned this to Justin and said we should have a back up boy name just-in-case. He agreed because we all have heard stories of ultrasounds being read wrong.
Well, at this doctors appointment, Julianne rolled over and the doctor mentioned to me that she was definitely a girl. Whew…I guess I don’t need to worry about a boys name now. That made me feel tons better.
