Weeks 26-29!

Happy Tuesday, friends! I am here today to play catch up!

And, just because we are so close to the end of the school year, I couldn't resist...


Ha! Ok, back to business....
Here is my pregnancy update for weeks 26-29!
How Far Along:
26 weeks: April 19 - 25
27 weeks: April 26 - May 2
28 weeks: May 3 - 9
29 weeks: May 10 - 16
26 weeks - 4.19.16
Size of Baby:
26 Weeks - baby is 14 in, 1.7lb, size of a coconut
27 Weeks - baby is 14.4 in, 1.9 lb; size of an acorn squash
28 Weeks - baby is 14.8 in, 2.2 lbs; size of a large eggplant
29 Weeks - baby is 15.2 in; 2.5lbs; size of a cauliflower
27 weeks, 4 days - 4.30.16
Maternity Clothes:
I finally bought a pair of maternity shorts a few weeks ago. Ty calls them my "mom shorts"! ha! :) I was living in my only 2 pair of nike shorts that fit on the weekend and since school is almost over, I probably won't be wearing my maternity jeans anymore...the Alabama heat is no joke! I still want to get one more pair of shorts - maybe some khakis or something comfy! I have noticed my regular tshirts are getting more snug by the day and I had to dig in Ty's drawers for some sleep shirts. I like my sleep shirts to be really big and mine weren't cutting it anymore!
28 weeks, 2 days - 5.5.16
BOY! We have it down to 2 names - I think. :) My husband is having a hard time deciding on one. We are going to call him one name this week and the other name next week and then maybe that will help him decide. :) We have gone back and forth with several names but maybe we have it narrowed down now?!?! We will see. :)
First load of itty bitty baby boy laundry!!!

Around week 28-29 we were laying in bed and Ty had his hand on my belly and we felt his hiccups for the first time! I had been dying to feel them because my pregnancy app on my phone said a few weeks ago that I could start feeling them! He gets them a lot in the morning and at night when I am in bed. I've also noticed he will get them when I flip over from side to side at night. It is the sweetest, but definitely keeps me up when he has them. :) He is still rolling all around in there and most active when I am still. He hates to be smushed when I am bent over my teacher table while teaching small group or sitting on the floor. Anything where he feels confined, ha! He is sure to let mama know ;) He must be claustrophobic like me!!
29 weeks, 2 days - 5.12.16
I mentioned this in my last post but I haven't been sleeping great, mainly because I toss and turn all night long. My legs start cramping when I have been on one side too long. I sleep with a pillow between my legs but I wonder if I might need 2 or something? Also, when I toss and turn, it wakes little man up and he think its party time in my belly! ha! I have apparently also started snoring horribly and Ty has resorted to sleeping in the guest bedroom most nights....oops!
What I miss:
Sleeping on my stomach, wine!
Still Pickles & anything sour - sour skittles, sour patch kids, etc!
I mentioned acne in my last post (ugh), shortness of breath has begun recently as well...cleaning the house, walking fast, picking things up, etc...all causes me to lose my breath easily- ha! It makes me feel so out of shape!
Best Moment of the week (or should I say month? ha!):
Watching my belly move all around, feeling hiccups, getting his nursery ready, my baby shower (post coming soon!)
What I'm looking forward to:
Holding him!!!!

Weeks 24-25

Over a month has passed and I have had every intention of posting pregnancy updates but my oh my, life! Between writing thank you notes, family functions, end of the school year craziness, working on the nursery, my baby shower, working on the yard, I haven't had the energy or time to update! I am now almost 30 weeks (YAYYY!!!!) but need to back up to where I left off! 

How far along:
Week 24: April 5-11
Week 25: April 12-18
25 weeks, 1 day (4.13.16)

Size of baby:
24 weeks - 11.8 inches, 1.3 lbs; baby is the size of a large zucchini
25 weeks - 13.6 inches, 1.5 lbs; baby is the size of a large cucumber 

Maternity Clothes:
Around this time was when I pretty much stopped wearing my regular shirts because I was afraid they were going to start stretching. I have about 5-6 maternity shirts on rotation for work with my 2 pairs of maternity jeans! 

Boy! No name :)

Around this time I started to notice my belly moving from the outside! I had obviously been feeling him from the inside for weeks but I got him on video around this time making my belly move! It totally freaked ty out at first, HA! 

I toss and turn pretty much all night. My legs start to hurt when I've been on one side for too long. Flipping to the other side sure is a chore! And usually wakes little man up, making it hard to go back to sleep. ;)

What I miss: 
Wine. That is all. 

pickles, anything sour

I can't believe I haven't mentioned this before but HELLO ACNE. I have always struggled with acne but it hasn't been this bad in a LONG time. I am so self conscience about it and nothing seems to help!

Best moment of the week: 
clearly these weeks were over a month ago so I can't remember specifics of each week but I would say definitely me and Ty seeing him move my belly! 

What I'm looking forward to
holding that sweet baby in my arms. I cannot wait!
