Baby #2 - Week 26

How far along: 26 weeks now.

How big is baby? As big as a head of lettuce... feels a lot heavier than that. #justsaying

Sleep: Not great, actually. But that's ok... I'm getting used to it & it'll help me be prepared for when baby is here.

Symptoms: The burning rib and back pain continues. My skin has broken out again too, yargh!

Best moment of this week: We picked up a second hand video monitor, and I had a bit more time to spend trying to arrange baby girl's new nursery. Still a long way  to go, but I'm getting there.

Miss anything: Not really.

Movement: Mostly nights though occasionally I get some jabs in the daytime. She moves a lot while I'm doing my Spinning Babies exercises - just not in the right direction!

Food cravings: I still feel like pizza. So weird. Might need to make a homemade one this week.

Anything making you queasy or sick: Inversions and pelvic tilts are not fun, and I need to make sure I am doing them on an empty stomach, that's for sure. Willing to do everything I can to turn this kid!

Gender: Girl!!

How's your mood? I'm frustrated! I know that I sound like a broken record about baby being breech, but seriously.. I would be really gutted to have all my choice taken away from me when it comes to birth. After fighting so hard to get here & the high likelihood that this is our last baby, it's just hard - but then I feel awful for worrying, because our daughter actually getting here is so much more important in the long run. The mama guilt has started early with #2.

Looking forward to: Another week... I am just wanting this little baby to keep growing safely.

The Bump: Still in the weird, same-ish size, stage. I remember this from last time too.
