26 Weeks

photo (57)

Current size of baby: Head of lettuce

How far along? 26 weeks

Total weight gain: 21 lbs

Inches Gained: 5.5 inches

Maternity clothes? Yes.

Sleep: Not as good. Thanks to my pregnancy pillow, however, I’ve been able to sleep better.

How I'm feeling: So incredibly tired. And it’s that “I’ve been crying all day” kind of wiped out feeling. My blood sugar has been all over the place which contributes to the fatigue. There are foods that I spent months trying to find that wouldn’t raise my blood sugar and now they do. I’m a bit terrified that I’m going to have to go on insulin, especially since I can’t exercise to improve my blood sugar. I see my endocrinologist on Wednesday. Through it all, I feel incredibly blessed to be this far.

Best moment this week: Buying some really cute fall maternity clothes. And I found the most comfortable maternity jeans ever!! I’m determined to keep wearing them long after the baby is here!

Movement: Yes. I can now SEE the movement sometimes which I’ve never experienced before.

Food cravings: Chex Mix Puppy Chow, which I can’t even have in the house anymore. Sweets are completely off limits from now on.

Food aversions: Sadly, I could eat any and everything placed before me.

Gender: Girl

Labor Signs: NO

Belly Button in or out? Out

What I miss: Being able to sleep in any position I want to.

What I am looking forward to: My baby shower! I am so excited to be able to attend (and not on bedrest) and to still be pregnant at my shower. I can’t wait to spend the afternoon with my family and friends! I’m also officially announcing her name on the blog next weekend!!

Milestones: Third trimester??!!? Not sure when that officially starts. . .26 weeks? 27 or 28? Who knows, it’s all new to me. J

YAY! 26 weeks is so big! I'll be praying your diabetes doesn't cause any trouble for you and the baby. I'm thinking 3rd trimester starts at 28 weeks but I can't remember. All I remember is being SO SO pumped to be in the 3rd trimester. You're getting close. I;m so happy you are getting to experience the movements and all the excitement!!

Insulin is not bad. I wish people weren't afraid of it and didn't have guilt over it. If bodies don't make it or use it properly there is no choice. Hopefully it will make it easier for you and help you to feel better Mother of a Type I
