Things have been busy around here for such a laid back summer. I still intend to post my thoughts on our stay at Animal Kindgdom Lodge and some notes about visiting Disney World with a toddler, but it’s taking me far longer than I expected. Oh well, useful information is always welcome in the blogosphere. 😉
We also decided to replace the carpet in our house, so we essentially have to move out while it’s done. It’s a ton of work and being pregnant makes the job harder, but I’m excited to get rid of the nasty carpet we have and hopefully have something that will last and clean well.
Also, the toddler has done a bit of regressing as she hit the 2.5 year mark and we spend a lot of time snuggled on the couch with stuffed animals and books. I LOVE the snuggle time, but I hate the lack of things getting done as a result. It’s even more annoying when my to-do list each day is so small, but things aren’t getting checked off. Oh well, it will eventually get taken care of, I have faith.
On to the pregnancy update…
*How far along?: 26 weeks today
*Total weight gain: About 13 pounds
*How big is baby?: The size of an eggplant, 12-14 inches and 16-20oz
*Sleep?: Very inconsistent. Some nights I sleep 8 hours fine, others I’m awake every 3 for one reason or another. Still getting sleep though, and that’s what’s important!
*Best moment this week?: Normal checkups for both my daughter and I. We’re both growing well. 😉 It’s always a relief and a little stroke to the ego when a professional confirms that things are going right!
*Movement?: Lately it’s been a constant dance party. She’s quiet first thing in the morning, but after that she seems to move all day long.
*Food cravings?: The cravings seem to have disappeared. Now I’m hungry all the time.
*Stretchmarks?: Nothing new 😉
*Labor signs?: Negatory
*Belly button in or out?: Still in!
*What I miss: Mobility. It’s getting harder and harder to play with my daughter because I simply can’t move like she wants me to.
*Complaints: Nothing big, I’m just a lil whiny about the general downside of pregnancy. Back pain, fatigue, not being able to pick up and carry my daughter as often as she’d like.
*What I’m looking forward to: The less cluttered feel of the whole house after the new carpet gets installed. I really hope we can optimize our (lack of) organization so we can all feel less stressed about the mess.
*Nursery Progress: None this week, but with luck their room will look totally different once it’s put back together next weekend. Cross your fingers!
*What items do you still need to buy for baby?: Still everything. Once the carpet’s done and the new crib is assembled I’ll start working on the smaller stuff. Oh, and I need to double check that our car seat is still in date. If it is, we can handle anything as long as we have a crib and a car seat! 🙂
