Bump Update: Weeks 26 & 27


  

How far along? 26 weeks

Total weight gain: 20 lbs according to my last appointment.

Maternity clothes? Maternity/nursing sleep bras to bed, sleeping with my belly wedge, Bellabands, maternity shirts, maternity jeans, and nursing bras!

Stretch marks? Nope

Best moment this week: Potty Training our little girl! She got the hang of it after 3 days!

Miss anything? Sleeping comfortably.

Movement: Tons at night! So much I have a hard time sleeping.

Food cravings: Sweets

Gender: It’s a girl!!!!!!

Labor signs: No.

Symptoms: Aside from frequent urination, I had to go to Labor & Delivery again at the hospital because I was having a terrible pain in my lower stomach. It hurt all night long and I decided to call the doctor in the morning because I almost threw up from the pain during breakfast. Thankfully, everything is perfectly fine with baby girl and myself after several tests (They thought I had a possible urinary tract infection.) Turns out, all the weight from baby girl is putting strain on my belly in that spot and it occurs when I stand for a long period of time. It was suggested that I get a maternity belt to aid with supporting the belly weight to relieve the pressure from my muscles.

Wedding rings on or off? On.

Happy or moody most of the time: Happy

Looking forward to: Getting my maternity belt and hoping it helps me out with this pain! Also, my mini mommy makeover!

Workouts: Taking a break this week after my little trip to the hospital but preparing for my Prenatal Squat Challenge on Instagram!

Other: Potty training has been going very well and we are so proud of our little girl!
