26 Weeks

Size of baby: English hothouse cucumber ( 1.7 lbs and 14 inches)
Total Weight Gain: 13 lbs
Continuing symptoms: Braxton Hicks, round ligament pain, sore feet
New symptoms this week: Frequent bathroom visits, which are quite unrewarding. I am tiring of visiting the washroom so often, so I try to hold off as long as I can! 

Sleep: Waking up at LEAST twice per night for the washroom. If I try to skip the second one, the last 1/2 hour - hour of sleep is uncomfortable.
Maternity Clothes: Love them!
What I'm Eating: Not healthy this week. So disappointed in myself. I feel hungrier than normal, sometimes I feel crazy hungry and I want to eat everything. I have a bad habit of eating right after I get home from work instead of waiting to make supper.
Cravings: Chips, salty things, ice cream

Movement: Lots of rolling movements, lots of kicks. The movements are higher every day, and I can often feel them above my belly button now!

Special pregnancy moments: At our prenatal appt. last wednesday we found out the results of our ultrasound, and everything looks normal, which is awesome!

We also went for a 3D ultrasound. I was really unsure of paying for an ultrasound, but I figured I would just go for it because what if I never get the chance again! It turned out to be a really great experience. 

We only wanted the 10 minute package because we figured 20 or 30 minutes seemed too long, so that is what we paid for. We actually got nearly 40 minutes worth of ultrasound for that! The woman was super nice. She was trying to get a good facial shot but baby turned in so she couldn't. So she let me come back after my prenatal appt. (they were in the same building) for another 20 minutes. We got both sessions in real time on DVD, and a picture. The picture isn't the greatest, kinda blurry and the nose looks super wide 

My favourite part was watching the baby move on the screen and feeling it at the same time! We also saw baby shake it's head and yawn. SO CUTE. 

I would love to post some pictures of it, but my screen shots don't seem to be working! They keep turning out like grey checkers. I will try to take pics of the screen with my camera.
