Michelle's Pregnancy Journal: Week 26

Doctor Appointments:
September 18 (28 weeks)

Based off my LMP I have a due date of Dec 8. Ultrasound measured for a due date of Dec 7. I was tracking ovulation with temping and that gives me a due date of Dec 11. My Dr is choosing to go with Dec 7 and I there fore will be moving these posts to Saturdays and going with my Dr's choice. 

Baby Names:
We all know now its a girl so HER name is Mya Sue 

Food cravings: 
I think a lot of my food cravings are gone or at least calmed down. That's always a great thing since I'm over weight naturally, so no cravings is best for me. I did post on Facebook a picture of Macaroni and Cheese with applesauce on top and I grossed a lot of people out but it happens to be something I also ate as a child, I just happened to really want it 

Mya thumps around in there quite often. I was informed I have an anterior placenta so I don't feel her quite as much as I'd prefer, but she's more active as time goes on and its so fun when she's in the mood bounce around and make herself known. She really doesn't like a full bladder so she reminds me when I need to empty it!

Weight gain:
10 week weight: 225lb
13 week weight: 228lb
