26 weeks - 14 to go!

I love my bump!

It makes me giggle. :-)

How far along? 26 weeks- WOW!
Gender? Everybody thinks it's a boy. I've stopped trying to figure it out.
Sleep: Still so-so, but getting better.
Belly Button in or out? Even, if that makes sense. It's not an inny or an outy, just kind hanging level with my tummy. The weirdest thing is that I have a mole in my belly button and I never paid much attention to it until now--it's really quite funny looking.
Cravings: Apples, cheese, peanut butter, honey, and McDonalds(SHAME ON ME!!!)
What I am looking forward to: My parents coming this weekend to help put together the nursery and my 28th birthday tomorrow!
Weekly Wisdom: Enjoy being pregnant--it's pretty rad.

What's the little one up to? (
The network of nerves in your baby's ears is better developed and more sensitive than before. He may now be able to hear both your voice and your partner's as you chat with each other. He's inhaling and exhaling small amounts of amniotic fluid, which is essential for the development of his lungs. These so-called breathing movements are also good practice for when he's born and takes that first gulp of air. And he's continuing to put on baby fat. He now weighs about a pound and two-thirds and measures 14 inches (an English hothouse cucumber) from head to heel. If you're having a boy, his testicles are beginning to descend into his scrotum — a trip that will take about two to three days.


  1. Why can't you eat apples, peanut butter or McDonald's? I know why cheese (some of them) and honey are bad, but what's wrong with the other things? (Aside from McDonald's just being generally bad for you.)

    Can't believe you're up to 26 weeks already. And your bump is adorable!

  2. I just noticed I typed those foods under "what I miss"-- I must have accidently erased my "cravings section! oops! As you can see, I didn't edit well before posting. Thanks for catching that!

  3. I always edit after posting, nbd ;)

    Jenn you have got to be the cutest baby mama I've ever SEEN!!!! ::swoon:: I bet Jake can't get over it!!

  4. I agree Jenn! Absolutely adorable!

  5. Being pregnant is pretty rad! Something tells me your last 14 weeks are going to fly by!
