Lakeon's Pregnancy Journal: Week 26

Follow Me on Pinterest

Doctor Appointments: 
Jan. 21-- NEXT APPOINTMENT (I take the glucose test)

Food cravings:  No real craving these weeks, also not loving Dr. Pepper as much as I did.

Symptoms:  Belly is getting in the way for sure. Bending over to put my shoes on is getting difficult to do. I'm still able to shave my legs though, so that's a plus! Every now and then I feel pressure in my tummy when I've been walking too much. I get out of breath and thirsty doing my grocery shopping.

Weight gain: If my scale is correct, I've gained 17 pounds.

(before pregnancy while standing up, it was 32 inches) 
(while lying down)Below the navel- 41 inches. 
(while lying down)Above the navel- 38 inches.

Sleep: I've been sleeping just fine besidesmy daughter, Chloe, waking me up 2 to 3 times per night. I'm not able to sleep on my tummy at all now which is hard. Brantley still is a night owl, sleeping all day and kicking all night. One morning he even got hiccups for the first time.

What I've been up to the past 2 weeks: I've been in full nesting mode trying to get Brantley's room all ready for his arrival in 14 weeks. I hit up all the local thrift stores once a month to stock up on baby clothes and items. Do we have any other mamas that go thrift shopping? Comment below and tell me about the places you go and things you love to find.

If you follow me on pinterest, you've probably noticed all the pinning of baby clothes I've been doing. (If you don't follow me, click the button at the top to see everything I hope to get for baby!) 

We bought his bedding last week and It looks so great in his room. (I'll include a picture of it at the bottom) My husband has halfway agreed to letting me paint Brantley's room! I'm thinking 2 walls gray and 2 walls red. Also, I want to paint Chloe's room the same way but with pink instead of red.
