26 weeks

Week and day: 26 weeks 0 days - ladies and gentleman...I'm now in the single digits in my countdown - 97 days!!!

Belly Button in or out: definitely out

Wedding rings on or off: still off - although I tried my engagement ring on the other night and it seemed to fit ok but am still scared with this hot weather, they'll get stuck

Food cravings: steamed squash, sandwiches with cheese, lettuce, tomato, and big, juicy pickle!

Food aversions: none!

Nausea: gone!

Energy level: I've resorted back to a few naps here and there

Weight gain: I think close to 30 pounds - doctor said I was gaining healthily though

Mood: definitely starting to anticipate Ladybug's arrival!!

Maternity clothes: I plan to go to Miracle Hill to look for skirts and more shirts today or tomorrow...the store has been closed for a week or so due to storm damage - excited about what I may find!

Size of baby: eggplant

Changes of baby: weighs about two pounds - double from my last post! She's inhaling and exhaling amniotic fluid as lungs develop, eyes fully developed (starts to open eyes and blink), brainwaves detectable

Next appointment: July 10th at 8:30AM - glucose screening test!!

Other: my ankles are almost gone and if I'm on my feet a lot, they will ache; tailbone hurts if I sit too long, her movements feel more like jabs now and I LOVE it :) So far, I've loved being pregnant....the comfortable and the not so comfortable - it's an amazing gift!

Here's a pic from Sunday...I was 25 weeks and 5 days
