Bumpdate {26 weeks}

Ok, so I realize it's not quite Halloween yet...but I figured this week was the most appropriate week to incorporate the holiday onto my chalkboard!

Size of baby: A head of lettuce
Weight gain: I gained {at least} another 2 pounds this week. Bringing my total to 19 pounds. Someone tell me this is normal…I feel HUGE.      
Maternity clothes: For sure! I have little patience for even attempting to wear my regular clothes…it’s like someone snuck into my closet and shrunk all of them! 
Gender: A GIRL! 
Movement: Her movements are starting to be more jab-like (instead of just rolling around in there) and Travis finally felt her kicking! 
Cravings: I still cannot get enough pasta…I forgot how amazing PastaRoni is! 
Symptoms: Lots of little things here and there…heartburn, round ligament pain, cramps/growing pains/Braxton Hicks/whatever they are, cellulite, forgetfulness (I literally cannot remember what day it is anymore). Oh and my belly button is doing strange things…it is almost an outtie! So weird!
Workouts: I ran 15 miles this week! 4 miles a day was getting to be too difficult, so I cut it down to 3 and did that Monday-Friday. I’m hoping to do the same next week…but may have to cut it down even more!  
Sleep: So so…I’d say 6 on a 1-10 scale. My problem is that I cannot fall asleep...I blame my husband for watching sporting events in bed till after midnight. Once I am asleep, I always wake up on my stomach and freak out that I’m squishing the baby! 
What I miss: Sleeping on my stomach—guilt free! 
Best moment this week: Having Travis finally feel her kick! Also…this is so pathetic, but getting an email from Babies R Us telling me our crib is FINALLY back in stock! So we have finally ordered the crib!
Looking forward to: A 4-day work week this week and Halloween candy!!!
