26 Weeks: 14 More To Go!

How far along? 26 weeks.. 3 days

Maternity clothes: The items I ordered in a size 12 came yesterday (leggings and vest type tops), and they are very comfortable! I've been pairing these with some new boots I also ordered, along with jumpers and cardigans which stretch over the growing bump.

Stretch marks: Still using Palmers stretch mark lotion...I haven't had any additional stretch marks. (Still only have the small one on my breast).

Sleep: Sleep's been okay.. My toilet trips have increased a lot over the last couple of days, I am definitely feeling more pressure on my bladder from you. The increase in toilet trips has disrupted my sleep, but I've not really had any problems getting back to sleep. So can't complain really!

Best moment this week: Shopping for things for you with Daddy and testing prams together...it was so exciting and I felt like a child Christmas morning!

Miss anything? Nope - I'm feeling very content and happy with life at the moment!

Movement: You're still moving LOTS and LOTS. Daddy got to feel you wriggling yesterday and not just kicking, which was really nice. 

Food cravings: No food cravings.

Anything making you queasy or sick? I haven't felt sick or queasy but this week I noticed a change in my sense of smell.. It feels like every little thing that I smell is intensified by 100%.

Gender: Still waiting for our next scan for confirmation on this one... It has been on my mind so much, I just want to know if you are a little boy or not for sure! 

Labour signs: No

Symptoms: I am oh so itchy it's unreal, especially on the the bump... I'm trying so hard not to scratch because scratching can cause stretch marks or make pre-existing ones worse. As mentioned above my toilet trips have increased, and I've been feeling a lot of pressure on my bladder. I have days when I have lots and lots of energy then it'll just seem to disappear all of a sudden and I feel absolutely knackered! I've been quite emotional too...which I am blaming my hormones for!

Belly button in or out? Mostly out.. still wearing my belly bar.

Wedding rings on or off? On

Happy or moody most of the time: Happy but with a few hormonal emotional moments! 

Looking forward to: The weekend! We're still on the hunt for the perfect paint colour for your nursery so we'll be hopefully sorting that out this weekend, and if so then we can finally make a start (Yay!).
