26 weeks!

Friday, September 12, 2014

how far along: 26 weeks! 

how big is baby: 9+ inches long and 2 pounds! I can't tell you how nice it is to have him be measured in POUNDS now!  

weight gain: 8 pounds! I'm gaining 1 pound a week pretty consistently now. Haha! Kinda crazy!

sleep: it's been rough you guys. like i said last week, it's not because i'm physically uncomfortable. it's just my stupid thoughts. i can't turn them off. (more about that in my random thought section) 

missing: my underwear fitting i guess!? most of my clothes i can still squeeze into but the waist band on my underwear is getting SO TIGHT! haha.  i've just been putting off buying new maternity undies because what the crap? so much material! i'm hoping i can just stretch the underwear i have now out so it's more comfortable. haha!

craving: i've had quite the appetite this week. the only thing that doesn't sound good to me is processed food. 

feeling: physically i feel pretty wonderful. i'm trying to not eat as much at night and that's helped with the heartburn. emotionally... i've been kind of been a mess.

gender: boy and i just feel like he's so much like his dad already for some reason. #wishfulthinking

best moment of the week: lunch with nakaiya. it was much needed. 

looking forward to: i'm having a girls weekend with my sisters and mom next weekend and i'm so excited to spend some time with my favorite girls in the world!  

random thoughts:

-i'm starting to catch people staring at the belly which is exciting because that means i look pregnant but also weird because who likes to be stared at? haha  

-so unless you are a creepy man feel free to touch my stomach when you see me! i pretty much have no bubble and i love showing off my belly! (i'm that girl that touches strangers pregnant bellies without asking... oops!) 

-i'm writing about this so i can reference back to it if i get pregnant again but i feel like my belly growth has been really gradual up until weeks 24 to 26 and that's when it totally "popped" 

-sleepy time is rough for me right now. all my worries and pains of life just stare me in the face like a big huge jerk.  this has been a problem for a few years but after we got Bernie it helped SO MUCH but since i've been pregnant my anxiety and paranoia have slowly crept back. 

-so i've been told my whole life how i'm too sensitive and too over-protective and blah blah blah. it really bothers me when people say that. (well because i'm sensitive and get my feelings hurts easily haha) i'm really not looking forward to hearing that my whole parenting life. i shouldn't let people get to me but sadly it does. i wish i was laid back. so badly. but i'm just not! it's hard worrying constantly about the people i love and have it completely wreck me when they are hurting but really, being sensitive and caring is like 90% of who i am! and most of the time it's wonderful that i'm like that! i just need to learn how to control it. i'm 27 and feel like i should have life figured out a little more by now. i guess it'll just be a life long process. 

-having my pink hair again makes me so happy.

-bernie is slowly growing out of his mischievous puppy ways and he's just the biggest sweetie pie. i'm really so lucky to have him. i know the deep love i have for my dog makes a lot of you uncomfortable (especially some of my siblings hahah) but i don't care. 

-i love being pregnant and i'm so glad it's such a long process. i have so much to do before baby comes! 

have a good weekend!
