Bumpdate - Week 26! Holy shit time flies by fast!

How on earth I have made it to 26 weeks pregnant is beyond me.  It feels just like yesterday that I looked at that test that said "Yep, your life is about to change."

But here we are and so far, doing good.  I am excited because this month we have an ultrasound appointment. I am hoping baby girl cooperates so we can get a 3D picture of her!  Also, I failed my glucose screening test so this Friday I have to go in for the 3 hour test.  Prayers that the test comes out good!

On with the bumpdate:

How far long?
26 weeks!  I can't believe it.

Maternity Clothes?
I have a couple of maternity jeans that are amazing comfortable.  I also bought a pair of maternity shorts which is a MUST when pregnant in the summer.  I need to go buy more.  And maxi dresses galore! They are super comfy, adjustable, cheap and great for during and after pregnancy.

Baby Giggles moves around a lot during the morning and while I'm at work.  Not sure if it's because I"m sitting at my job for the most part and she feels squished or something, but sometimes it's distracting.  I have also noticed that she has moved her kicks/jabs/headbutts farther up my belly.  This tells me she is growing!

Food cravings/aversions?
I literally went to Stop & Shop food store and bought a WHOLE Tiramisu cake.  They make the best tiramisu I have ever tasted and I crave it even more now that I'm pregnant.  Besides that no weird cravings. This week I had to go out and buy some steak because I am sick of eating chicken.  We always primarily ate chicken before but this week I have had it.  Yuck.

I have started feeling more round ligament pain and my belly has been itching.  I know that my belly is going to really start growing much faster now.  Hopefully the round ligament pain doesn't last too long.

It's a girl!  Can't wait till we meet Sophia.

Sleep has surprisingly gotten better.  I don't know if it's because I'm getting used to the back pain or I'm just too exhausted to even notice.  I haven't really slowed down my life which I pay for by the end of the night, but at least I am getting some sleep in.  I wake up once a night to pee.  I consider that a win in my book.

What I'm looking forward to:
I have the biggest anxiety of getting the baby's room done.  Hubs and the bestie will be painting on the 20th which means we will move out the desk into our bedroom and get rid of a table we have in there that we don't have room for.  Then after we paint we can get the crib from my parents house and set that up.  Then organize with some of the stuff we have and done!  Then I'm sure when we have our baby shower, it will be a mess again. hahahaha
