26 weeks & 1 day. Baby Urie is about 14 inches long from head to toe and weighing in at 1 and 2/3 pounds. His hearing is becoming more developed and he can hear Diz and I chatting (and probably Olivia barking, too!). And he’s putting fat on his little frame. (is it odd that I kind of want a chunky baby?!) p.s. how hot am I after a killer CrossFit WOD? Super schweaty & hot!
Total weight gain/loss:
I really hate this question.
Sleeping relatively well. Occasionally when I wake up in the middle of the night I have a hard time going back to sleep, mostly because I start thinking about all the things I want to do to prep for Baby Urie.
Best moment this week:
We registered at Target this weekend. It was so much fun. (and kind of overwhelming at the same time)
I can feel him all day, but he’s most active first thing in the morning or late evening when I’m getting ready for bed.
Round ligament pain when I run (at least that’s what i think it is) – or the babe is grabbing fistfuls of uterus and hanging on for dear life.
Snowcones from Mabuhay. I could eat one every day. When I drive home from work and I don’t see a line, I’m tempted to stop. every. time.
Not much. I’ve been drinking iced coffee again and it’s delicious. (not that often… and I’ve cut back on my Diet Coke consumption)
Belly Button in or out?
Still an innie. Maybe it’ll pop in a month?
What I miss:
Sleeping on my stomach. Running. Like I mentioned above, running is becoming painful. I did get a pregnancy support belt, but I’m not sure it’s helping much.
What I am looking forward to:
Trying to organize the house and get the nursery ready. Starting to think about decorating and getting some stuff to hang on the walls.
Feeling pretty thankful that I’ve had such an easy pregnancy. I really have been feeling good and can’t complain. I’m staying active in CrossFit and love that my ‘family’ there is so supportive and so encouraging.
Now… I need some help. While we were registering I realized how many options there are for just about every baby item!
Any recommendations for bottles, bouncers, swings, and/or anything else?
What are your absolute baby item “must-haves” or “don’t bother”??
I have no formal training in nutrition or fitness. Whatever you read here on Ash & Diz is based of my own personal experience & my own opinions. I am not perfect. I make mistakes. The only thing I am expert at is being ME. Please consult a physician or expert before changing your diet or exercise routine.
