26 Weeks

Just this week, I have started to feel baby girl above my belly button. She has been moving way low in my abdomen but all the sudden I'm feeling her high too, and sometimes it's simultaneous, so as if my growing belly wasn't indication enough, I can definitely tell she's getting bigger :)

I can't seem to stay on plan with THM. I'm great in the morning and afternoon, but totally lose it around dinner time. I really need to get it under control though because I'm hoping for another "tiny" 8 pounder, not a 10.5 pounder like big brother was!!

24 and 25 Weeks

Well, I still haven't taken any Unisom like the last weekly blog said! I'm so excited about that. Each day felt better and better and now I feel (for the most part) that glorious second trimester "normal."

The scale went up super fast in the last month (9 lbs in the last 4 weeks...what?!) so I've started Trim Healthy Mamaing again. I'm still just 17 lbs up total but I don't want to gain 55 lbs again and have another 10lb 8oz child. I'm not 100% on plan but definitely way better. I've started mixing 1/2 to 2/3 unsweet tea in my lemonade when I just have to have it. So hopefully the scale looks better at my next appt. I definitely feel better!!

Every pregnancy, I seem to pull a muscle in my groin that doesn't heal until after delivery. That has happened this pregnancy and has been here for at least a few weeks, so that's no fun. 

No 25 week picture because it's already Saturday and I kept forgetting. :(

Pregnancy Comparison #2

Well, it's clear that I carry my girls the same!
The ivory and blue shirts are the same - just a different color. I can't find the ivory one since I've pulled out maternity clothes. I remember wearing the purple one because the ivory one didn't quite fit me, and I have to agree with that with this pregnancy too. My belly is so high with my girls that it just doesn't sit right.
