Bump Update: 26-27 Weeks

26 Weeks

Baby Size: The size (length) of a scallion. 

Feeling: MOTIVATED. My desire to get things organized, cleaned and ready for our sweet boy has been unparalleled lately. I am driving Preston completely insane with the amount of projects I'm tackling (and asking for help on). Also feeling really excited for our baby moon coming up in a week and a half!

Food Cravings/ Aversions: Nothing, food continues to be easy! 

Symptoms: I started taking magnesium per a recommendation of my prenatal yoga instructor and it has worked great - no more charlie horses or cramps at all! I have had plenty of Braxton Hicks though! I noted in one of my early week recaps that I started experiencing them around week 16, and they have continued through pregnancy and are picking up in frequency. They aren't painful at all, just very, very tight, which is good - my body is practicing for the real deal in a few short months!

Weight Gain: +14 pounds on gym scale

Projects: The home projects continue! We had our fence redone and I have been busy in they yard pulling weeds and planting grass in a few spots we had bushes removed from. I've also reorganized underneath our bathroom sinks, cleaned up the garage a bit more and worked on smaller nursery projects (like putting together the little reading nook above).

Dear Baby: Buddy you are going to be here before we know it! I hope you know how much I love being a place for you to grow and am so glad you are flourishing in there. Know that your dad and I and so many other people can't wait to meet you. I pray over you daily and can't wait to kiss your sweet little lips in 14 more weeks!

27 Weeks

Baby Size: The size of a head of lettuce (around 2 lbs and 14.5 inches).

Feeling: I continue to feel great and think that is in large part to continuing to work out and stay active. As my belly gets bigger, I have noticed that things aren't quite as easy and have been trying to get better about asking for help when needed. Still feeling incredibly motivated to get things done, Preston has commented more than once on my extreme nesting. ;) 

Food Cravings/ Aversions: Nothing new to report here! Though I am excited to indulge in some delicious food on our baby moon next week. :) 

Symptoms: Symptoms this week include majorly embarrassing pregnancy brain. I can't believe I am this... I was doing a quick garage organization and needed to pull my car out of the garage. I hopped in my car and put into reverse and started to back out... WITHOUT SHUTTING MY DOOR. I hit the garage frame, luckily there was no damage to my car but, like any self respecting adult, I put out an SOS call to my parents to come assess the situation. Fortunately it was nothing my dad and a hammer couldn't fix and no permanent damage was done on anything (besides my ego). 

In other pregnancy symptoms I should mention that I go to the bathroom about 592 times a night. It doesn't help that I've started drinking a cup or two of tea before bed every night, but it is the most relaxing ritual I'm not willing to give up.

Also, my belly is doing a major growth spurt this week! I can see and feel the difference in the last week and have a continue it is going to continue to grow rapidly!

Weight Gain: +15 pounds on gym scale

Projects: My parents are amazing and helped me build these awesome triangle shelves for Samuel's room which I couldn't be more excited about. I've wanted to do these shelves for awhile but didn't quite have the handy skills to execute myself - thank the Lord for awesome parents who had no problem helping me make them! I am so in love with how they turned out and can't wait to post pictures soon.

Dear Baby: Sweet little love the weeks are going so fast and before I know it you will be here! Know that I pray for you and the man you will become everyday. Thank you for making me a mama precious boy!
