26 weeks update
Size of baby: BC's network of nerves in her baby's ears is better developed and more sensitive than before. She may now be able to hear both our voices. Her inhaling and exhaling small amounts of amniotic fluid, which is essential for the development of her lungs. These so-called breathing movements are also good practice for when she's born and takes that first gulp of air. And she's continuing to put on baby fat. She now weighs about a pound and two-thirds and measures 14 inches
Total weight gain/loss: I haven't gained any weight this week. Still same 53kg
Sleep: I don't want to even go there, tossing and turning and moving up and down because lying down is sore and very uncomfortable.
Best moment this week: Having my wonderful husband back home. I'm so happy happy happy!!!! And he is so thoughtful, bought me a stool to use in the shower since its getting harder to reach my feet. I just adore him :)
Movement: She is moving quite a lot both day and night and I'm loving it and so is her daddy.
Food cravings: I'm craving for baby salad leaves.
Gender: It's a girl
Labor signs: None
Belly button in or out? It's definitely out!
What I miss: Being able to eat as much as I want, my stomach is so small.
What I'm looking forward to? Going for the 4D scan next week and just spending this week with this weekend we start to assemble the nursery.
Weekly wisdom: Not to over eat before going to bed, last night we had a delish dinner I couldn't resist helped myself and boy did I pay, my tummy was so sore and I battled to get some sleep.
