26 week bumpdate!

How far along: 26 weeks!

Total weight gain: 15 pounds
(that's down 1# from last week.... but last time I weighed myself after breakfast)

Sleep: So back and forth. Tyler has been getting up anywhere between
5:30 and 6:30 every morning! And one night I'm freezing and the next night sweating...

Gender: We are Team Green, So we'll find out in September!

Names: I'm pretty set on a girl name. And I have 2 favorites for a boy...
And the hubs likes the names, but won't commit... so we are still without a name.

Stretch marks: No new ones

Best moment this week: Zach finishing 4th grade, Tyler saying to me, "hi Kate"
and the baby moving so much my belly looks like an alien!

Movement: So much movement! I love it so much!
I've felt some pretty good stretches where I see the baby on both sides of my belly.

Food cravings: Bean dip. After the bean dip the other day, I have thought about getting more.
But I'm trying to resist. Also cream soda.

Labor signs:
Not even close.

Belly button - innie or outie: in

What are you looking forward to this week: taking naps. A lot of the time I start getting tired mid day, 
and I'll even dose off, but I wake constantly because I don't want to sleep through Zach getting home.
Now I don't have to worry about that. So once Tyler is down for his nap, 
I have a chance to get one myself.

Health: Feeling really good besides being tired.

I go to the Dr. this week! Can't wait to see what's next...
I'm thinking GD test is soon, if I remember correctly.
And then 2 week appointments? We'll seeeeee!

Also, my wedding rings are officially off, which makes me really sad.
And I've bought a fake to wear, because I don't like people looking at my big belly,
toting kids around, and seeing no ring on my finger... (Yes, I think of those things!)


  1. Hi! I am a new follower via Monday Mingle Blog hop. Your blog is so cute and your belly gives me baby fever (shhh..don't tell my husband that please!) Anyways, you look great, and I look forward to more of your posts.

  2. LOL I am the same way, when I was without my ring I bought a fake too.

  3. My rings are off too. It actually depends on the day. If it's not hot and humid, I can wear them but most days are so I usually just leave them in their new resting place :)

    I go to the Dr.s this week too (on Friday), then I start going every 2 weeks!! I can't believe how quickly this pregnancy is going!

    You're looking great and am still amazed at your ability to be team green. Have a fabulous week Kate!

  4. Your baby belly is so cute. And I am totally with you on the fake ring thing. I am always paranoid people are looking at me with the girls & my huge belly & silently judging or feeling sorry for me!

  5. Thanks, Ladies! I am feeling pretty great!

    Texas Tanners- I don't know why I feel this way- because I certainly don't see someone and think, "oh, poor them, they must be single!", I think, "oh poor them, their rings don't fit anymore!" So I don't know why I'm sure people are thinking that about me!
