26 weeks

I feel huge! I have been having some pretty strong growing pains this week so I know I have grown since last week. I am loving this belly though, I have been waiting for it for a very long time. 2 more weeks and I will be 7 months pregnant, I can't believe it. I have to go for my one-hour glucose test in a week. I am not looking forward to drinking that sugary drink. Bleh!

Best Moment of the week: Watching my belly move as he is kicking me. It makes it all that much more real.

Epiphany of the week: Keep a stool under your desk to reduce leg swelling.

Entertaining question/comment of the week: My dad and I laid out by his pool last weekend and he said "you look so funny with that big belly hanging out". Thanks Dad.

Obsessions: Practicing my Hypnobabies and enjoying the deep sleep I get after listening to the relaxation track before bed.

What I am most looking forward to this week: Washing more baby clothes I have received and organizing the dresser. Yeah I never got around to doing that last week. Oops.

What I miss the most: Nothing I am loving pregnancy this week.

Symptoms: I have the linea-negra now and it is getting progressively darker.

Milestones: Baby's soaking up your antibodies, getting his immune system ready for life outside the womb. Eyes are forming, and he'll soon be practicing the blink...perfect for batting those freshly grown lashes. *Courtesy of

YAY!! Baby bump!! You look like me :) Can you believe we are 7 months this week!!?? Crazy! I'm loving my little guy move under my skin as well, but it sometimes feels like scratching from the inside. I have NO idea what he is doing in there!! Sometimes feels like he is dancing or doing a irish jig!! LOL! Hope to see you soon! then we can get a belly shot together :)
Love, Laura

oh and the test is not that bad. Just drink the orange stuff. It tastes like sweet tang :) The sugar makes you a bit jumpy and well as the baby goes nuts as well :) Other than that you only drink a small cup of that stuff.
