Bumpdate: 26 Weeks

size of the baby: head of lettuce 

total weight gain: 16 pounds - holding steady with weight gain, but my belly is definitely growing! 

gender: Baby Girl - Miss Olivia Rose 

maternity clothes: I was finally able to wear maxi dresses this week! It was the best! I'm happiest in sandals, so that has improved my mood this week too! 

movement: I'm starting to be able to feel her press up against the outside of my stomach & totally forgot how much I loved that last time. Eric loves to feel her too, but I haven't really tried with Ella. I think Olivia will have to be a lot stronger for Ella to pick up on it... 

missing: Running. Now that it has warmed up, I'm seeing tons of runners while I'm out walking & it makes me so jealous. I love a good run on a nice 60 degree day... 

craving: A Frozen Strawberry Margarita. It just sounds so good... 

exercise: See Tuesday's post - I've been on fire lately! 

symptoms: Heartburn - to the extent that I'm taking a Pepcid Complete every morning now. It's helping a lot & I know what foods tend to trigger it as well, so I'm limiting those. Except peanut butter. I know it triggers my heartburn, but I just can't give it up right now. 

Ella: has been really stubborn lately & we're regressing with the potty training a bit. She's hit or miss when it comes to the baby. Sometimes she's excited about it, but other times she'll flat out tell me she doesn't want her. We may have our hands full come July... 

looking forward to: Our trip to Saratoga this weekend. Eric's step-brother lives near my parents & we're going out for my nephew's 1st birthday party on Saturday. Since we were making the trip, my sister decided to come with us too & we're all staying at my parents' house. It'll most likely be my last trip to their Saratoga house before Olivia arrives, which seems crazy because we go every two or three months! 

best moments: 
  • Barbecuing! Having the grill out this week made dinner so tasty! 
  • Lots & lots of walks. They've really relaxed me & I've been sleeping great too. (That could have something to do with the windows being cracked open too - I love fresh air.)
