26 Weeks!

Friday I went in for another prenatal appointment. This time I had to drink that awful stuff so they could check my glucose. It doesn't taste too bad, but boy does it make me feel bad. I crashed so hard I was sure I was going to fall asleep right there in the waiting room!

Baby Z is doing great! Strong heartbeat, active and growing wonderfully! I'm actually measuring one week ahead. I've almost gained 20 lbs so I'm right on track to gain my typical 35 lbs.

It is definitely getting harder to get around. My muscles ache and I've been having problems with my sciatic nerves. I've been to a massage therapist twice now in hope to minimize the pain. I don't really notice a difference, but it sure feels nice to have her work the kinks out.

Thankfully I've still been sleeping great and usually only getting up once a night to go to the bathroom.

Owen is quite vocal about the baby, my belly and my boobies! Almost everyday he says something about my "tummy being huge" or my "boobies are getting bigger because they have milk in them".

I'm supposed to start going in for check ups every 2 weeks now, but I'm going to talk to my doctor (she was out today) at my next appointment and find out if this is actually medically necessary. I mean I have 3 kids that I have to find a baby sitter for and gas is outrageous! Now that I'm feeling the baby move I'm not as freaked out. I don't see why I can't space my appointments out a bit more than that! We'll see!
