26 Week Update!

Notice the new wall color?!?! :-)

How far along? 26 weeks.

How big is baby?  1.75 pounds/14 inches!  About the length of a hothouse cucumber (who comes up with this stuff?!?!).

Weight gain? 22lbs  - As much as I hate reporting this, I still will.

Symptoms? Not many!  Though indigestion is setting in.  I determined this weekend that pancakes are not a good idea!

Sleep? I can't stand sleeping on my side.  I want to sleep on my stomach already.

Food cravings? Milk and fruit.  In full force now!

Movement? Yup!  Last night he was all over the place.

Gender?  It's a boy! 

Clothes?  Maternity Pants and some maternity tops and some regular tops. I have a few shower dresses to decide between now.

What I am looking forward to? Painting is done!  Putting together furniture this week!  Yeah!

What am I missing?  Sleeping on my stomach!  Maybe a random glass of wine!  Other than that everything is great.

Milestones? 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.

Other?  Don't forget to put your guesses into the online baby pool!
