How Far Along: 26 Weeks!!
Total Weight Gain/Loss: Up 9 pounds as of my last appointment. Probably up a few more…I have no idea. My OB doesn’t say much about it…
Maternity Clothes: Yuppers!
Movement: A lot more during the day now. I can feel these little rumbles in my belly…silly kids…
Sleep: The hip pain is still there in the wee hours of the morning it kicks in. Thankfully I am able to reposition myself and fall right back to sleep.
Gender: A boy and a girl!!!
Symptoms: Fatigue, round ligament pain/cramping, stuffiness, hip pain.
Cravings: No real cravings
Freak-out of the Week: No freak-outs! Just happy to feel them moving around – it keeps me calm.

Next Appointment: Growth ultrasound is May 8th. OB appointment on May 9th.
Miscellaneous: Finished with Childbirth classes. We are ready – but hopefully not for another 10 weeks or so. J
