How far along: 26 weeks and 5 days
How big is Baby-A: Still about the size of a cauliflower and a little over 2 lbs.
Total weight gain: 145lbs. That is +3 lbs over the past 4 weeks for a total prego weight gain of 8 lbs. Since I started at pregnancy at 137 and dropped down to 119 from first trimester morning sickness...I'm really happy with the consistent progress now.
Sleep: Some nights are awesome and some nights really suck.
Best moment of the week: When we received a baby gift and one of my new maternity bras in the mail! Just last week I ordered the Lamaze Cotton Spandex Sleep Bra for Nursing and Maternity (highly recommended by fellow blogger Elena) and I absolutely love it and ordered a few more.
Food cravings: Peanut butter.
Nausea - Only after I eat a big meal.
Hunger - Nothing to extreem. Eating in little bits throughout the day helps.
Heartburn - I have TUMS near me all the time.
Nosebleeds - Frequent, but usually resolve in about five minutes.
Braxton Hicks - Happen a lot but no more than three an hour
Exercise: I've taken a break from any real exercise routine. I still do small weights for my arms once in a while...and LOTS and LOTS of kegels...but whenever any activity starts to aggravate the oh-so-wonderful PHN, I stop. Still love and use the pink exercise ball from hubby to replace a regular chair whenever I can. It helps me reduce back and hip pain!
Movement: A lot of movement by Baby-A. The other night I equated her movements to Winnie the Pooh, when his tummy would rumble for honey.
Belly Button: The "turkey timer" has popped.
