26 Weeks {a pregnancy update}.

excuse my hot mess of a hairdo. I forgot to take a picture in the morning, so this is post nap on Sunday afternoon.
How Far Along: 26 weeks, 4 days
Size of baby: 15 inches, 2.2 pounds, about the size of a cumcumber
(cleary I'm getting ripped off at the grocery store, as I've never had a cucumber this big)
Total Weight Gain/Loss: (as of 2/8/13) 18 pounds
 Maternity Clothes: All maternity clothes for the most part.
Gender: BOY! Tyler Paul.
Movement: The boy likes to move. First thing in the morning, and usually right when I lay down at night.
Sleep: I've slept ok. I've had really strange dreams.
Symptoms: Just your typical pregnancy symptoms. A little heartburn, a little sleeplessness, a lot of trips to the bathroom... you know. Just the usual. ;)
What I miss: Sleeping on my tummy.
Cravings: If it's bad for me, then I crave it. It's horrible really. I've never had a pregnancy like this. Normally I am easily restrained with food, but this pregnancy has me completely off my railings.
Food Aversions: nada. see also, I crave everything bad.
Best Moment this week: Nothing really stands out to me, which I guess is a good thing. Sometimes not having anything big happen in a pregnancy is the best kind of week to have :)
What I am looking forward to: I have my last monthly appointment in a week and a half. I'm looking forward to being on the final countdown of this pregnancy. People keep asking me if I'm ready. And to be honest, I'm not sure anyone is ever ready for a child, regardless if it's your first or third. But I AM ready to meet Tyler. I AM ready for him to be here and be in our everyday lives. And I AM ready to be a family of five.
