Bump Date: 26 Weeks 

Hey, hey friends! It’s time for another bump date. This little one is quite active and he or she is seeming to get into a pattern for movement. Baby T likes to kick me awake around 6:45-7:00 and lull me to sleep (kick) me asleep from around 8:00-10:00 at night. Between those hours she or he moves around, but not as much. 

I’ve been try to video tape baby T’s movements, but our little one doesn’t like to cooperate with the video camera. However, if I do capture baby T’s movements on video, I will be sure to share that with you all.

Anyways, before I get rambling about a lot of random things, let’s get started, shall we? 

Baby Updates: 

Baby T is the size of a eggplant. Our little one is growing quite a bit too, coming in at a whopping 2 pounds and approximately 9.2 inches.

Weight Gained: 

I’m steadily gaining, around 8.5 pounds, (I think?) I’ll find out for sure at my appointment tomorrow. 


Last week, I was able to run quite a bit (4 times last week) and it felt super great. I just love those endorphins. So far this week, I’ve run three miles and I haven’t worked out yet today, but I have it on my to-do list.

Food Cravings:

Most of the same stuff: salads, fruit, broccoli, cottage cheese, watermelon, banana ice cream, and smoothies. 

Food Aversions:

I’m happy to announce I don’t have any major aversions. However, heavy foods or greasy food doesn’t sound appealing.  


Movement (!) and  swelling feet towards the later hours of the day. I’ve also had a nice case of heart burn most days. Thankfully, it is on and off.

Gender Suspicions: 

I’m still learning toward girl, Landon is still saying boy. 

Looking Forward to? 

Getting our next appointment over. I have to drink that glucose drink, so they can make sure I don’t have gestational diabetes. I’m not a fan of super-sugary things, and I’ve heard this drink is like a sugar bomb. I think my strategy will be to chug it fast and get it over with.

Any Baby/Pregnancy Related Purchases? 

None this week,  but, I am on the hunt for some maternity shorts. 

Miss Anything?

My summer wardrobe…oh well. 😉 

Questions of the Day: 

  1. Anybody have a good experience with the glucose test? Did it taste good? 
  2. I need to begin registering, for all those mamas out there, any suggestions? 
  3. What’s your latest craving?
