26 Weeks!

How far along? 26 Weeks
Total weight gain/loss: about 13 pounds... yep, I gained 6 flipping pounds this month. I am NOT happy about it, but I cant take it back...
Maternity clothes? Of course. My shirts are getting shorter too and I'm hating it.
Stretch marks? sore subject with me.
Sleep: A distant memory.
Best moment this week: finding/buying the gown for the Marine Corps Ball
Movement: He is practicing his soccer kicks. My belly bounces like crazy
Food cravings: not surprisingly(for me) SWEETS.
Labor Signs: None. I was a little worried this weekend when he was extra quiet, but I guess he was having an off day.
Belly Button in or out? In, but far less shallow.
What I miss: ridiculously hot baths.
What I am looking forward to: being able to look for a new suv in a couple of months
Weekly Wisdom: don't eat a breakfast sandwich 30 minutes before your Gestational Diabetes test....you WILL fail.
Milestones: I'm only a week away from the 3rd trimester!

I had my regular appointment this morning and everything went really well. I need to add complex carbs to my diet for the next couple of days and then go in for my 3 hour glucose test on Friday. The heartbeat was nice and strong and my uterus is actually measuring a week ahead. I go back in 3 weeks (instead of 4) and after that I start my every 2 week appointments.
Time is flying by! Me and my good friend Kendra go the Ellen show next Thursday, which we are SUPER excited about. We will make sure to have our dancing shoes on :-) After that is the Marine Corps Birthday Ball and I was finally able to find a formal maternity gown that I love. Although I did end up having to spend a bit more than we had wanted to.
