Week 26

With my cute hubby celebrating Father's Day!
Under 100 days to go!

Pregnancy: 26 Weeks

Weight Gain: 20 pounds

Sleep: Sleeping horribly. I just cannot seem to get comfortable and every time I move I'm in pain.

Names: We have a name!!!! We are going to tell Emma first on the way up to Michigan in a little over a week and we want to tell Matt's mom before telling anyone else.
Feeling: Feeling drained.... After a long day I just have NO energy. I am beyond ashamed of my home at the moment. On the weekends I'm in full nesting mode and things get cleaned and organized but during the week... forget about it! Emma has started to take on the task of loading and unloading the dishwasher which is a HUGE help!
My Back is starting to hurt again so I'm going to start getting a 30 minute massage weekly.
** Public Statement Announcement** Later today I will post again about the AMAZING woman who gives the BEST back massages and at the BEST price!

Health:  Went to the doctor last week about my breathing and he said that it could be due to acid reflux... It is common to develop during pregnancy and not something that I had experienced with Emma... But I have started taking Zantac 75 right before bed and so far so good. Doctor said that if I have another breathing episode we will need to take some additional precautions but for now I'm trying to avoid them.

Movement: I'm feeling very consistent movement now and know exactly when this baby's active periods are.  He is most active at night, so fingers crossed that this changes outside of my belly!

Belly: Measuring about 2 weeks ahead right now, still a faint linea negra and my belly button is just about flat.

Here's my standard shot...

Next Appointment: OB, Glucose Tolerance Test and Ultrasound: Monday, June 25th at 27 Weeks!

Non-Baby Highlights of the Week:
· Yesterday after my work trip to Ft. Campbell I came home to beautiful flowers and dinner made by Matt and Emma! What a good way to spend my birthday!
· Two couples came over for dinner on Saturday night. We ended up just grilling and it was so nice to have a low key evening with good friends!
· Celebrating Father's Day on Sunday. Emma was with her dad so Matt and I just spent the day together. Including dinner with my parents at L'Auberge Chez Francois in Great Falls.
