Behind again... (Weeks 24-26)

So I'm behind on the pregnancy updates yet again.  If you want to keep up better, I'm much better at doing my vlogs semi-on time, so go to my Youtube channel to watch them :)

In the meantime... today I'm 26 weeks pregnant!  INSANE.  That means this is my LAST week in the 2nd Trimester!  Holy cow!  I'm almost 2/3 of the way done!  I also realized that today I'm exactly 6 months pregnant.  (Even though most people think of 24 weeks as 6 months, because 6x4=24-- there aren't always 4 weeks in a month!  And the 40weeks of pregnancy doesn't equal exactly 9 months, rather 9 1/2 :)  Pregnancy factoid of the day!)

So here's my weekly pictures 

And here's my little update thingy :)

How far along: 26 Weeks
Size of Baby: English hothouse cucumber  (yeah I had to look that up lol)
Total Weight Gain: 15lbs!
Maternity Clothes: Yeah pretty much everything now, unless it's yoga pants or something.
Gender: We're having a baby BOY!!!
Movement: Moving a TON still.  I can't tell what position he's in cause I feel kicks EVERYWHERE.
Best thing this week: Still loving feeling him move around in there :)  Last weekend we got his room  painted :)
Sleep: Meh it's good.  Getting harder to get comfortable though.  And I discovered even though we don't have room for it.. I want a king size bed! ;)  Love my hubby but man I wish I could spread out more!
What I miss: It's getting harder to bend down to get something I drop
Cravings: MEXICAN FOOD.  Like the real stuff- not taco bell lol.
Symptoms: back pain if I do too much during the day (sometimes hips too), and TMI alert but I've noticed I've leaked some colostrum.  lol.  Kind of odd but I guess a good sign!
What I’m looking forward to: Our babymoon-- which we've decided to do a "staycation"  We are going to go to Charleston on a Saturday and go to an elective ultrasound place and get a 3D ultrasound :)  Maybe do some shopping and go to some restaurants down there we don't have at home  (I'm thinking IHOP!) and then play hookie from church on Sunday and go do something of my hubby's choice (probably I will be accompanying him for 9 holes of golf-- and who knows what else :))  Not sure when exactly this is taking place-- depends on when I can get an appointment!

And here's the links to the videos I've done since then
