26 week Bumpdate!

How far along?  26 weeks... 14 weeks to go!

Baby Size: 
Baby is the size of an eggplant and weighs nearly 2 pounds!

Total weight gain: 
Umm... too much! I feel like a blimp... It's gotta be at least 25 pounds, eek!

Maternity clothes? 
Yup... and mostly maxi's... And let me tell you, this Texas heat blooows!

Stretch marks? 
I've found two small ones on both of my sides. UGH.

Not so great... Can't get comfy and I constantly toss and turn all night. So I wake up every morning groggy and exhausted.

Best moment this week: Getting Colton's shelves hung and his room nearly complete. All we have left is finish painting the crib and re-assemble it! And buy an organizer storage cube for his closet! :) Colt's stroller and car seat came in this week and we are IN LOVE with it!

OBSESSSEEEED with his room!
It looks pretty fabulous with that Kate Spade on it too ;)

Miss Anything? Wine, still... Having energy and not being tired all the time.

Movement: He's pretty active when i'm paying attention. Don't notice it too much during the day when i'm busy. But, if i'm home and laying around, he tends to kick a lot!

Food cravings: Always candy... chocolate. Turkey and ham sandwiches, ha!

Anything making you queasy or sick: This Texas heat!!! I literally go outside for 20 minutes and I automatically feel nauseas!

Gender: A BOY!!!!!!!!!! Colton John :)

Symptoms: Sciatic pain is never ending! It's getting harder to sit on the floor and get back up easily, haha! I have severe swelling in my hands, so off went my wedding ring. :( I feel so naked without it!

Belly Button in or out? In

Wedding rings on or off?  Off :( I had hubby call the doctor yesterday about the swelling and they said it was normal in this 105 degree weather. 

Mood: Nervous about going back to work and stressing myself out with school and Colton's arrival and everything that needs to get done before he gets here!

Looking forward to: Here's what i'm NOT looking forward to... School starting and not being able to nap and lounge around all day. :( 


  1. I don't think you are huge. You look great!! His nursery looks fab and what a great stroller

  2. You look so cute! You have such a cuter maternity style than I did!

  3. I agree with Tiffany! You have the cutest maternity style as opposed to me who lived in yoga pants and oversized t shirts. Actually 3 months after birth and that is my same style just not in maternity sizes.

    Rest up while you can!

  4. WHERE did the time go?! I swear I remember you saying you were pregnant and now it's like bam you are almost ready to go!!

    I absolutely adore his room omg so jealous. I haven't even set up my second's room LOL *bad mom*.

    You look amazing!

  5. Ooohhh beautiful work on the nursery!! Don't be afraid of how much you are gaining. It will take some work but you will be able to lose it all :-)

  6. Weird. I have that stroller system AND a Kate Spade diaper bag. Not that same diaper bag, but still weird. Great minds think alike... and have great taste in baby gear.

  7. The nursery is AMAZING. I love the shelves. Did you find them like that or did you refinish them? We did our registry last night. So overwhelming but fun!!! You look beautiful.

  8. Nursery is def. looking fab!Would love to know about those shelves as well. Super impressed with everything you are getting done, and looking great!

  9. 105 degrees?? Oh man, yeah, that would help explain the swelling, but still that's no fun!

  10. i can't get over how cute the nursery is!!! i LOVE it!!
