26 Weeks...

How far along? 26, almost 27 weeks... almost in the 3rd trimester!
Total weight gain- somewhere around 15-20 pounds... it was exactly 18 pounds when I went to the doctor on Tuesday... I am going to keep clinging to the fact that she says the baby is big :)
Baby Related Purchases-
This cute snow leopard rocker that I have been obsessed with :).
When we realized they were not selling them anymore Andrew went and got the last one for me/Bailey for Christmas.  I was soooo excited :).  This definitely goes on the list of unnecessary things but fun!!!!
Stretch marks- nope
Movement- It is funny because some days I feel like she does not stop moving, and others I get worried because she has not moved enough.  But overall a lot of movement!  I am even getting woken up at night by the kicks!
What I miss- Fitting into some of my normal clothes. Many things still fit me, but a lot of my cute stuff... especially nicer things don't.  I have already expressed this, but the maternity options are just not the same and are ridiculously overpriced! 
Cravings- Sweets, I think I could eat Christmas cookies all day long!!!
Anything making you queasy or sick- Sometimes after I eat I feel sick.
Gender- Girl!!!!! Check out our thoughts on our little girl :)
Labor- hopefully not until March... Less than 14 weeks until the due date! 
Worries- The days where she moves less makes me worried.. then she will have a day she moves a ton...
Best moments this week:
* Fun times a friend's wedding from college... so good to see sweet friends and catch up!
Looking forward to...
*Christmas break... 4 DAYS!!!!
*Shower in Atlanta on Sunday!
*Cookiefest on Sunday!
*Just seeing friends and family and having a chance to relax!
Size of baby- 

an English hothouse cucumber... don't know what this is either...

What the baby is up to- (from

The network of nerves in your baby's ears is better developed and more sensitive than before. She may now be able to hear both your voice and your partner's as you chat with each other. She's inhaling and exhaling small amounts of amniotic fluid, which is essential for the development of his lungs. These so-called breathing movements are also good practice for when she's born and takes that first gulp of air. And she's continuing to put on baby fat. She now weighs about a pound and two-thirds and measures 14 inches (an English hothouse cucumber) from head to heel. 

Get Caught Up!!!
