26 Week Bumpdate
Today marks week 26 of my pregnancy so I thought I’d give a little update.
For the first time in my adult life my belly is bigger than my boobs. While I’ve always had a little chunk this is the first time this has happened to me. Baby bliss is about the size of a head of lettuce they say. Getting pretty big in there :) I don’t know if I look pregnant or just like a very apple shaped woman? I realize its very taboo to ask a woman if she’s pregnant so I haven’t had any inquiries. What do you guys think? Apple shaped or pregnant?
This is also not a maternity shirt and I hear that those accentuate the pregnant body a little better. I need to do some shopping!
I didn’t weigh myself from last time but I have been slacking off a bit in my motivation so I imagine I’ve gained quite a bit since the last update. Seeing these pictures though sure does motivate me to do better! Last check in I was doing about 4 x 1.5 mile runs a wk and 3 weight training sessions a week. The last week and a half I’ve slacked and dropped both in half. Not to mention I’ve been way over eating….So yeah, I’m a little scared to step on the scale.
I am starting to feel baby move a lot more. This is one thing I’m really happy about. Baby is usually most active between 8pm – midnight. The little kicks and punches are getting stronger and stronger. Even DH is able to feel them sometimes from the outside!
No unpleasant side effects right now except that I have to use the restroom with great frequency and panty liners are my best friends right now. TMI, I know.
Overall I’d say the pregnancy has been pretty pleasant so far. We’ll see how things go in the next trimester!
Until next time!
