26 Weeks

How Far Along: 26 Weeks


Baby’s the size of: A zucchini – because, you know, they’re all exactly the same size ALWAYS. So, for you details people, baby’s approximately 14 inches long, head to heel.
Total Weight Gain: 21 pounds, boo-yah.
Gender: It’s a boy!
Best Moment this week: It’s a Choose Your Own Adventure. Graham is out of diapers. Craig & Susan came to visit for the weekend. We got new carpet. I can’t decide what to go ON AND ON about, but there’s plenty there, to be sure. Good week! And what makes it better is that I’m only in the office in three days and then we’re on vacation starting Saturday. Whee!
Maternity Clothes: Yep. Need some basic plain shirts and camis, though. A-shopping I will go!
Movement: This kid is in wonderful perpetual motion all the time. He’s big enough now that I can feel him roll to shift position. He’s getting cramped in there. :)
Sleep: Up once a night, not too bad otherwise.
Cravings: Nothing special.
Symptoms: Oh, folks, the Third Trimester “Tired”s have started to hit in the last couple of days. You know, where you’ve only been awake a couple hours but feel like you need to go back to bed? Or a walk up the stairs leaves you a little too out of breath? Yep, it’s coming.
What I miss: Man, a glass of wine sounded good this week.
What I’m looking forward to:  VACATION!!! (sorry, did I just yell that?) I’ve been so busy at work that I haven’t been thinking much about it at all. Now that it’s literally the next thing on the agenda, I can’t wait. The only complicating factor is that Graham decided he had to start wearing big boy underpants two weeks before we leave. No matter though, about 5 dozen other moms on the internet have had children do the same thing – and they’ve blogged their motherly wisdom on the topic. We are as prepared as we ever could be.

And the consummate weekly pic of me, marking the first day of my last week of the second trimester. How is that possible?


  1. You are SO.STINKiNG.CUTE!!! Enjoy your vacation, take lots of pics to share! :) miss you guys!

  2. Thanks for the update! You may be tired because of all your projects, too. Your vacation is perfectly timed. Now relax!!!

  3. Thanks guys! I also realized that tiredness could be from Graham waking up at night (all night) due to the potty training thing. Ahh well. I’ll blame the new kid. 😉
