Bumpin' It Up || Week 26

I am so sorry I have been MIA. We got a stomach bug and it was not a beuno...our house currently smells of vomit and lysol. Carpets being shampooed tomorrow, I am calling it Puke-A-Palooza 2014. Shirts should be made...

Shirt: Pinkblush
26 Weeks ||

Due Date | March 21st, 2015

Gender BOY!

Name | WE OFFICIALLY HAVE HIS NAME. But we are keeping it a secret. So while it is still a secret to ya'll, it isn't a secret to meeee. (bwuahahahaha) But honestly, it is such a relief to me. I know we still have a few months, but it was really bothering me that we didn't have a name for the little dude.

Size | The app says he now weighs 1 2/3 lbs, but we already know little dude weighs more than that. I'd take a gander and say he is probably a little over 2 lbs by now. 

Feeling We had a pre-term labor scare on Wednesday/Thursday. It was not my favorite. But the baby is fine and I am fine. Definitely a scary experience though. Don't want to make another trip to L&D until babe is fully cooked. 

Then, like my intro mention, we got a really bad stomach bug. I will spare you the details and just say there was a lot of puke in our household, my toddler was puking in her sleep and my puking led to some scary contractions. My husband is a rockstar, more on that fiasco later...#wesurvived

Hormones | I am a bit emotional these days, and with what has happened this week, I don't blame me! haha!

Workouts I go on a walk almost every day that is 1.5 miles long and I chase Grace around. 

Weight | +20 lbs and my boobs have officially hit Dolly Parton status. I kid you not. We are entering Double E territory now. Did I mention I started this pregnancy as a C?!?!? 

Body | Just general pregnancy aches and pains: feet swelling, back ache, RLP. 

Clothing | Settling pretty nicely into my new maternity wear thanks to my awesome Christmas presents I got early from my mother-in-law! (Have I told you lately how awesome she is?!) It's nice to have clothes that fit you how they are supposed to! 
Sleep | I am getting to sleep earlier these days. At the start of my pregnancy, I could NOT fall asleep before 3 am. (Daniel gets up for work at 4. Grace wakes up at 7-8) It was INSANE. But now I can go to sleep at 12, and sometimes 11:30. I am hoping I am able to fall asleep at a normal hour soon. Though with the plague running through our house it is a bit more difficult to fall asleep.

Appetite | I've been nauseated this week so my appetite has waned a bit. But I still know when I do want things. On the way home from L&D I wanted a chocolate donut BAD. I had to settle for a chocolate frosting w/ sprinkles donut though. (Which is okay by me.) 

Nursery | We decided we aren't doing anything with his room till after Christmas. I am on the lookout for a dresser though. 

Missing | Family & normal sized boobs.

Fun Fact | 
** The baby is practicing breathing by inhaling and exhaling small amounts of amniotic fluid. This is pretty important for the development of his lungs. 

** As of Friday we are officially in the double digit countdown till the due date! 97 days to go! Ah!

Best Moment of The Week | Being told that I wasn't in pre-term labor and that little dude was doing really well in there. There is a positive to being in L&D for half a day--you get to listen to your kiddos heartbeat for an extended period of time. :) 

Next Appointment | December 23 (which is actually our anniversary) for another growth scan & regular check up (and another crack at the 3D)
