Pregnancy #2 Update :: 25, 26 & 27 Weeks

25 Weeks
26 Weeks
26 Weeks

How far along: 25, 26 and 27 weeks
Size of Coffee Bean: Almost 2 pounds and measuring about 14.5 inches (at 27 weeks)
Fruit/vegetable comparison:  Rutabaga (25), Scallion (26), Cauliflower (27) {All According to Baby Center}

Gender:  Another Baby Boy!
Showing: Oh yes!
Maternity clothes:  100% Maternity pants and 80/20 in tops and dresses  
Unglamorous body changes:  Nothing new.  My weight gain seems to have slowed down a bit.  I gained 3 pounds in 5 weeks according to my nurse at my 27 week appointment.  I've gotten bad and stopped weighing myself at home since it was too depressing.  Looking back at my pregnancy updates with Jack, around this time I was hitting the gym every weeknight and doing prenatal yoga.  Due to having a toddler to take care this time around, Jason's busy "after-hours" work schedule and the Houston HEAT I'm not doing anything this time around, except for chasing a toddler and trying to eat smaller meals.  Postpartum weight loss won't be pretty, but I'm trying to remain positive!
Sleep:  Decent...just not enough of it!
Movement:  Tons and much harder this past week.  
Food cravings: No major cravings.  Trying to eat smaller meals.  I get full fast these days!
Anything making you queasy or sick:  No
Wedding rings on or off: Engagement ring is on, but my stack of other two rings is too tight when worn together.  
Mood: Great
Best moment this week:  Getting Jack moved into his "big boy" room!  He loves it and now I can really work on the nursery.  Jason promises he will put the crib together this weekend.  
Strange experiences:  None that I can think of other than starting to get the weird "alien" positions and movements from Colin on my belly. 

Milestones: We did a family roadtrip at 26 weeks to visit family (our last one until Colin is born) and are just continuing to make progress on the nursery!  At 27 weeks I had my glucose test, received a Rhogam shot, pre-registered at the the hospital and ordered Colin's Baby Book.  Trying to check many things off the growing to-do list.  The doctor visits are now every 2 weeks rather than once a month. 
Looking forward to: Getting my results from the Glucose test I took last week.  Putting together Colin's crib, finishing a closet organization project in the nursery and decorating!

  1. Isn't it funny how different pregnancy is the second time around? No lazy time, no workout time. No time!! You look great, and I'm so jealous that you've been able to do a nursery!!! Our remodeling chaos is nowhere near the point where I can decorate yet. :(
