Bumpdate: 26 Weeks

How far along: 26 weeks

Size of Baby: an eggplant / 9.2", 2lbs

Side note: the babe keeps getting bigger but I don't feel like my bump is really growing at all. I guess as long she is happy and healthy (and the doctors tell me she is) then I should be happy to stay a 'manageable' size. 

Gender: I see a lot of purple in our future with our sweet baby girl

And yes I do know that purple is MY favourite colour and no it doesn’t have to be Baby P’s favourite colour but until she can tell us what is, it’s I am going live in baby girl purple Heaven.

Symptoms: So all things considered I am feeling what I assume is pretty darn good for a preggo. I’m tired and not sleeping through the night because I have to pee at least 3 times but when I have my head on that pillow, I am out. I also forget things a lot but honestly that isn’t so out of the normal for me.

Stretch marks: so far so good.

Sleep: Like I said, I have to pee multiple times a night ad it sucks.

Husband: made my heart melt when he picked Baby P’s first dress on the weekend. She can’t wear it for 2 years but the fact that he picked out a dress for her? Swoon <3

Belly Button: In and staying there for a while 

Movement: another heat wave rolled in for the weekend and I’m hoping that’s the reason baby girls wasn’t super active. Thankfully the last couple days I have felt more movement, more rolling than kicking. I’m ok with this because I’ve heard the kicking can get pretty painful around 30 weeks.

Cravings: I want all the bad food but mainly pizza. Some sweet stuff here and there but I want everything bread-based and/or fried every minute of every day. And for reasons outlined below this is now a major problem L

Maternity Clothes: these leggings are THE best!

Best Part of The Week: I dragged my hubby to Babies R Us this weekend to get started on our registry and although it was a bit daunting it was also so much fun to imagine our little girl playing with/wearing/using all the things we picked out for her. It got me even more excited to meet her!

Worst Part of the Week: I officially have gestational diabetes and it crushed me. More on that to come.

Missing Most: relaxing with a tasty cocktail and not caring about a thing.

Looking Forward To: seeing my sisters this weekend! My little sister is coming home for her bachelorette party this weekend and I am so excited to spend time with her as we celebrate her upcoming wedding!

Although let’s be honest it’s also going to be rough being the only sober person during a weekend party that is all about celebrating. I am just thankful I get to sleep in my own bed at night.


  1. I totally feel you on the baby getting bigger but the belly not! I'm 30w4d and don't have much of a belly at all. Now granted I was already overweight when I got pregnant so my doctor doesn't want me to gain more than 15 lbs (I've only gained 8 so far), and I have what they call a "B" shaped belly instead of a "D" shaped belly. I'm hoping my B will pop out into a D at some point, but if not, as long as baby is healthy and growing like she should be, I'll be fine with however I look :)

  2. Love the dress your husband picked out! So cute! I feel you on the sober partying - I was in a wedding at 11 weeks pregnant and couldn't participate in the bachelorette drinking fun or the wedding drinking fun. I was also at a weekend wedding this past weekend where I was the honorary designated driver. Oh well, as long as our little girls are growing strong and healthy, that's all that matters!

  3. Oh no I am so sorry about the gestational diabetes, I can't even imagine how much that sucks! But at least baby girl is still healthy in there! Yes to all of the purple I can't wait to see the nursery.

  4. Your hubby picked an adorable dress! And there's even a little purple in there :)

  5. What about me!? ;-) I have had GD twice as you know. Ask me and I will try to help. XOXO
