How far along: 26 weeks
Total weight gain: I am fluctuating between 6-7 pounds
Maternity Clothes: I can still wear regular jeans but maternity jeans are more comfortable. However, I pretty much live in leggings these day. Since I'm carrying lower I am in maternity tunics/ tops for length!
Stretch marks: Nope
Best moment this week: Cleaning out the nursery - the crib should be delivered today!
Movement: Lots! Will is strong and his kicks and rolls are powerful!
Food cravings: Skittles, skittles and more skittles. I seriously bought 2 pounds of skittles at Kroger this weekend. I'm also craving cold fruit - apples, grapefruit, clementines, etc.
Labor signs: No. I have braxton hicks contractions regularly but nothing serious.
Belly button - innie or outie: It's getting flatter and depending on Will's position sometimes looks like it is about to pop out any second!
What are you looking forward to this week: Putting the crib together!
Overall, I'm doing good. I feel like I'm finally getting some energy back too which is nice! I'm still having hip/ back pain but I'm learning to deal with it. Sleep has gotten harder this week as I either can't get comfortable or am up going to the bathroom all night long. I'm in full on nesting mode and have gone a bit crazy with purging things from the house!
I can't believe we have less than 12 weeks left!
