26 Week Update








How far along?  26 weeks….6 1/2 months! Woooo! Baby is the size of a butternut squash.

Total weight gain: 142.4 lbs as of this morning. Ahhh….22 lb gain. Bump is OUT there now…full blown.

Maternity clothes: Yes…added a few maternity dresses to collection. This one was only $14 and fits soooo comfortably, I love it for more of a home/lounge dress as its pretty see through. This one is a work favorite…the material is super soft and you can easily dress it up or down. Also been loving tee-shirt dresses lately and love that they are non-maternity so you can wear them again after pregnancy. My favorites recently are here, here & here.

Symptoms: Heart burn city….omg, its soooo bad.

Food cravings: Watermelon, passion fruit and mango’s. I’ve been on a green smoothie kick lately too.

Anything making you queasy or sick?  Nope! EXCEPT….for some odd reason pizza still makes me feel queasy every now and then.

Workouts: ….same as last week, none! Its been 116-119° this whole week so haven’t been able to do much walking or hiking either.

Wedding rings on/off: Still on.

Stretch marks? None! Been using the Mama Mio butter morning and night. & I have been waiting to get the pregnancy line (linea nigra) and haven’t got one yet….my doctor said not everyone gets one so I’m kinda hoping I don’t.

Have you felt the baby move? Yes, she moves around sooo much and it doesn’t get old. And last week while laying in bed we got to watch her move from the outside. I swear, Ian is always there for all the cool moments & make me so happy 🙂

Name: Kennedy Gray 

Best moment this week: Getting the crib set up…it’s starting to look more and more like a finished nursery now. I know its still kind of early but I’ve been in full blown nesting mode.

  1. You look like an angel!

  2. I remember 26 weeks! I think the 4-7 months was a really good period for me. My appetite came back full blown, my energy was up, I slept really well and my stretch marks were barely visible. I’m now 34 weeks and experiencing all the pains of pregnancy people are talking about. *sigh* But there’s light at the end of the tunnel.
    You look radiant. Enjoy this time and just keep active. I used to keep myself so busy that I used to forget I was carrying a baby. 😀
