26 Weeks

May 15, 2017 in Family

Baby size: Length of a green onion

Weight gain: 21 pounds

Sleep: It’s gotten better. I’ve learned ways to prop myself up pretty good so my back doesn’t kill.

Cravings: Oh, I could eat sugar all day long. But I feel like I’m like that even when I’m not pregnant.

Feeling: I feel good! Other than the usual aches of pregnancy my body has felt good. Emotional-wise? I think I have a little pre-baby blues, is that possible? I have bad anxiety of having PPD and spiralling fast into dark days like I did with my first. It terrifies me but I’m trying to do everything I can to get myself out of that and be prepared beforehand. This babe is coming in the heat of summer instead of the dead of winter, so it will hopefully be a little different on my emotions. (Crossing fingers!!)

Peak Moment: Going on a date with Shey. That’s always a peak moment in my book. It’s just refreshing to go out!
Body changes: I feel a tiny bit of swelling, not a ton. I also feel like a whale when I try to roll from one side to the other when I’m trying to sleep.

Doctor/Health Update: Everything is looking good! I feel so blessed you guys. Really truly. I was on pins and needles for so many months and now I am just trying to enjoy pregnancy because it’s something I really miss when I’m not pregnant! Next appt will be at 28 weeks for my glucose test. I’ve been nesting like crazy so hope that motivation sticks around for awhile!;)

Xo,

Aubrey

    I can totally relate with the craving sugar thing! I loved sugar even before I was pregnant too, and was astonished I could want even more of it, but that has happened now that I’m expecting in my first trimester! Lol the body is beautiful with a little crazy at times. ?
