26 Weeks



How far along?  26 weeks.

How big is the baby this week?  Green onion. I'm not sure how you go from a rutabaga to a green onion?  These updates seem to be getting a little sketchy.

Total Weight Gain?  15 pounds. 

Maternity Clothes? Yes. I had to get some warmer weather clothes for Hawaii, so I'm hoping that maybe I'll be good to go for these last three months. I'm also trying to only buy things I can wear afterwards (i.e. drawstring instead of maternity pants). 

Best Moment of the Week? I have to say that being pregnant at the beach is actually kind of nice. Not being able to imbibe in some adult beverages aside, the lack of having to worry about what you look like in a bikini is pretty damn fun. I sure did have a macadamia nut cookie & strawberry ice cream sandwich while laying by the pool. I definitely would have NEVER even considered that not pregnant.

Den and I also celebrated my 32nd birthday with dinner on a patio overlooking the ocean. They had a couple of guys out there playing string instruments but rather than the classics, they were playing things like Michael Jackson and Metallica. Kind of Vitamin String Quartet-ish but live.  It was so nice and peaceful- a perfect birthday dinner. 

Trouble Sleeping?  Slept like a baby all week.

Miss Anything?  Pina Coladas with rum. And sushi. Our hotel had a Morimoto sushi restaurant and I obviously couldn't eat the majority of it. Luckily, I was able to settle for some shrimp tempura rolls and Den got his sushi fix for the time being.

Movement?  Tons. It was fun to lay around all week with a bare belly because you really see every kick and movement.

Food Cravings? The above mentioned ice cream sandwiches. 

Belly Button - In or Out?  In. 

Symptoms? Just hungry pretty much all the time.

Wedding Ring - Off or on? On

Happy or Moody?  Happy, of course! Vacation will do that to ya.

Looking Forward to?  Attacking our to do list now that we are home. This trip was sort of our last hurrah before sh*t gets real. Up first on the list is painting the room which is currently burnt orange.
