26 Weeks- Your Face.

The other day I had to get another ultra sound to get a better look at your cute little face. Gooba goo.
At this point you are about 2 pounds... I am still trying to figure out why you only weigh 2 pounds yet I have put on 18... Anyways, your mug is adorable. I am guessing that you are going to have mommies nose and daddies lips. But, we will see!

"Oh hi everybody!"
We just moved into a "new to us" apartment. This apartment is the home that we will bring you to for the first time. (!) Since we just moved into our new place last night we have not set up anything in your room but it is so fun for me to imagine what it will be like when you are here occupying that room...
With my second trimester coming to an end I have noticed a few new pregnancy symptoms taking over my body.
A. My first experience with heart burn. Weird burning/ acid sensation I could definitely do without.
B. Sitting too long has always hurt my back but now my booty is suffering. Even driving home has become hard on my booty. ouch.
C. Sciatic nerve pain that can stop me in my tracks. Really, I feel 80 with the way I have been walking lately.
D. Swelling fingers, feet, and ankles. So pretty.
E. Crazy wispy baby hairs that I can't keep under control. 
F. My once cute inny belly button has been stretched and popped beyond recognition...
G. Don't even get me started on my mood swings or my night time sleeping (or lack of).

Despite all of these minor aches and pains and random body changes I LOVE being pregnant. I have felt so much joy while you have been growing. It is so strange to watch my body being taken over and do things that I have no control over but feeling you there and knowing that I am creating a nice home for you in my belly and that I will be seeing you soon makes it all worth it. I have really had such a smooth and awesome pregnancy compared to most and I am really thankful for that. It is amazing to see the Lords plan in my life. I am so blessed. You will always be our baby and your dad and I love you so much already.

  1. So here is something my gynie talked to me about with having a hard time sleeping. I would lie there for hours, just getting more and more angry that I couldn't sleep, right? So he taught me this - try to sleep for half an hour. If I'm not asleep in half an hour, I get up, do something for half an hour. And then try again to sleep for half an hour. It made me less angry, and then I was able to go to sleep a little bit better. Reading scriptures always lulled me to sleep, too. :)
