26 week pregnancy update

Today i turn 26 weeks, time really is flying by. We had a midwife appointment last week and everything was fine and healthy. I also had to have my bloods taken which i wasnt thrilled about but i knew i needed them doing so it had to be done.

How far along? 26 weeks!

Pregnancy symptoms: These past few weeks this pregnancy seems to be getting harder. I have had braxton hicks, sometimes quite painful and also pains in my lower abdomen. Baby boy is still sitting low and this makes it really uncomfortable.

Stretch marks: No new one, just the old ones on my hips.

Sleep: Im sleeping ok this week, i only seem comfortable on my right side. I just wish i had more sleep i really struggle to get up with Lilly in the mornings.

Best moment this week: Hearing baby boy's heartbeat at the midwife appointment. Its actually the first time we have heard his.

Worst moment of the week: Having my bloods taken, Ech i hate them and my arms are all bruised but i survived!!

Movement: He is moving around alot more lately and can actually see the movement in my stomach, which i actually find a little weird.

Food cravings: Still chewing gum!

Anything making you queasy or sick? No

Gender: BOY

Labour signs: Apart from braxton hicks no.

Belly button in or out? In

Wedding rings on or off? Off.

Happy or moody most of the time: Happy.

Looking forward to: Taking Lilly to see santa this week.
