Bumpdate: 26 Weeks

26 Weeks!
Baby is currently the size of LETTUCE!

Next Appointment: Just a few days away, January 22nd!  Can't wait to update next week!

Gender: Adding another BOY to our family!  Check out our reveal photo.  

Total Weight Gain: I'll find out in a few days and I'm not really looking forward to it....

Maternity Clothes: Maternity pants and lazy/PJ pants are what works for me right now!  I wish it was easier to find cute maternity jeans that don't cost a fortune though.  As far as tops, I wear a mixture of both maternity and non.

Sleep: Blah, not so great.  I feel like I'm constantly switching sides or re-adjusting.  I wake up every day so tired thinking to myself that I'll definitely take a nap when Carson naps.  And I NEVER do!  Usually by the time I'm up I feel pretty energized...until Carson goes to bed.  :)

Movement: Movement has slowed down a lot so I'm really excited to get to my appointment and hear that sweet heart beat.  I also can't remember when you're supposed to start doing kick counts but I'm sure that will bring plenty of anxiety to my life!  

Food Cravings/Aversions: Hummus on pita bread!  Cuties!  I honestly feel like I can't get enough of these things.  I could probably eat them for every meal and feel satisfied.  I also still never want to eat meat.  Occasionally I'll eat something with meat in it like pizza (pepperoni) but I can't imagine eating a piece of meat.  We even had chicken noodle soup the other day and I avoided the chicken at all costs.  Haha, such a drama queen right here!

Best Moment This Week: We were playing in the playroom after breakfast and Carson brought his baby doll over to me.  He then ran and got his big brother book and plopped down in my lap.  I tried to set his baby doll on the floor next to us and he grabbed it and put it back in my arms.  Talk about melting my heart!

What I Miss: This has nothing at all to do with pregnancy but I miss warm weather!  I'm so glad I don't have to bring a baby home in this freezing cold weather!

What I'm Looking Forward To: Obviously our next appointment!  I want to hear Mason's heart beating!

Symptoms: I'm still having the lower back pain so I plan to ask about that at my appointment.  Otherwise I've been feeling pretty good...isn't that what the second trimester is all about?! :)

Extra Notes From the Week: This week I finally had a stranger comment about my pregnancy.  It's official, I LOOK pregnant to strangers!  I know people are always nervous to ask or make comments, but I'm so glad someone did!  Carson and I were at an indoor playground place and I started talking to a lady with a son the same age as Carson.  She was asking when his birthday was and then said "....and you're expecting again...?"  I sensed some hesitation and I really wanted to mess with her and reply with a shocked "NO!?!" but I'm not that mean.  

Here's your weekly Carson photo bomb!
