Good gracious! How have 26 weeks flown by and I haven’t once posted a picture of my growing belly?! It’s so different with each pregnancy. I was just talking with someone about this the other day. With Cori Belle, we took a pregnancy picture EVERY week! With Finley, we didn’t start until week 17 and took one every other week. And, this sweet little guy didn’t get a picture of his growing mama’s belly until week 23 – and that didn’t even make it on the blog!
So, here we are at 26 weeks, FINALY getting a picture up! HA!
How Far Along: 26 Weeks
Gender: It's a BOY!!! Tucker David Smith
Size of baby: He is 2.2 lbs. according to the pregnancy tracker on my phone. The size of a cucumber!
Total Weight Gain/Loss: Gained 15 lbs – man, that feels like a lot!
Maternity Clothes: I need some!!! This is the first pregnancy I haven’t had all my friends maternity clothes to borrow! I have ONE pair of regular jeans I can wear with a hair tie. I’d MUCH rather wear maternity pants. And, I literally have NO maternity shirts. This girl needs to do some maternity shopping!
Movement: LOTS of movement when I’m sitting down. He also likes to roll to the front of my belly quite often. I love getting to feel his little body hang out there.
Sleep: Things are going pretty well in the sleep department, but I have NOT been wanting to get up early. Definitely feel like I’m requiring more sleep!
What I miss: My abs! But, it’s worth it to not have any at the moment!
Cravings: Pregnancy started out with me craving smoothies ALL THE TIME, but these days, I’d like some cookie dough, ice cream, and milk shakes. Guess I better head to the gym! HA!
Symptoms: A few Braxton Hicks and a BIG belly!
Best Moment this week: Just knowing there is a sweet boy growing in there!
Now, let’s take a look at some comparisons… These are all picture of me at 26 weeks. Cori on the left, Finley on the right. Tucker on the bottom. Is it just me, or does it get bigger EVERY time?!
