your looking a little plump (pregnancy update!)

Pregnancy Week 26

*eeee feels so weird having a photo of my bare stomach on my blog!

(excuse the messy spare room its where all the baby stuff is being kept at the moment.)

Ive seen a few pregnant bloggers do a week by week update and I thought it would be a good thing too look back on! So I thought I would jump on the bandwagon!

How far along? 26 weeks

Total weight gain: 1 whole pound! I still dont know how? I eat all the time! & I have had no sickness what so ever!

Maternity clothes? Im basically just living in leggings & long tops/vests, comfy is the way forward!

Stretch marks? Nope not yet… Im using coco butter every night, and bio oil when I have more time to let it sink in!

Sleep: Sleeping is so uncomfortable, It hurts to lay on my back and on my side, I wake up all the time but I guess Its best to get used too it now!

Best moment this week: I had a midwife appointment on Thursday and she said everything seemed fine & the listening to the baby’s heart beat was so sweet.

Miss anything? Im not even a big drinker, I just want a glass of wine, and Im missing my nice night’s sleep.

Movement: He kicks alot in the mornings at the moment! & If im laying down and feel my stomach I can pretty much feel him move most of the time! <3

Food cravings: It changes daily, like today I really want cheese on crackers… or ben and jerry’s ice cream, maybe not together though?

Anything making you queasy or sick: The thought of my blood test at my next midwife appointment, im the worst when it comes to needles I faint all the time.

Gender: A beautiful baby boy, so excited!

Labor signs: Nope.

Symptoms: Im constantly sleepy and I have no energy! My back hurts and im just generally uncomfortable.

Belly button in or out? In (just about!) *ew*

Happy or moody most of the time: Happy mostly, although I can be extremely grouchy at times!

Looking forward to: The 4D scan at 31 weeks!

    awwww, your bump looks gorgeous. I can't believe you only gained a pound… I was very very unlucky and gained 60!!! But I was 2 weeks overdue and in the last 2 weeks gained over 10 pounds. I was holding so much water in my body that at the end of my pregnancy I wasn't able to wear shoes. It was horrible!!!
    When I got a chance to check my weight when I came out of hospital, my weight was 30 lbs lower than when i went there! I went from a size 14 to 18-20! shocking!!! I need to add a picture of my bump to my blog 🙂 it was enormous!!! And my boy was born at 9lbs 10oz.

    4d scans are amazing! It was such a great experience. I was crying from happiness 🙂
