26 WEEKS

HOW BIG IS BABY? 14.02 INCHES WEIGHING 1.68 POUNDS! – ABOUT THE SIZE OF A HEAD OF LETTUCE 

DEVELOPMENT: BABY GIRL IS RESPONDING BETTER TO DIFFERENT SOUNDS AND CAN NOW DISTINGUISH BETWEEN MY VOICE AND CORY’S VOICE! HER LITTLE BRAIN IS BEGINNING A PERIOD OF GROWTH AND OVER 50% OF BABY’S ENERGY WILL BE USED FOR THIS PURPOSE. HER LUNGS ARE DEVELOPING AIR SACKS (ALVEOLI) AND THE MEMBRANE THAT ALLOWS FOR EXCHANGE OF CARBON DIOXIDE AND OXYGEN IS NOW THIN ENOUGH TO LET HER TAKE A BREATH BY THE END OF THE WEEK. HER SKIN IS LOSE AND WRINKLY AT THIS POINT, BUT IT WILL SOON FILL IN WITH FAT DURING MY THIRD TRIMESTER. BABY R’S EYES ARE COMPLETELY DEVELOPED AND HER BRAIN IS ABLE TO REGISTER VARIOUS STIMULI SUCH AS A SOUND OF LIGHT.

WEIGHT GAIN: I HAVE GAINED A TOTAL OF 9 POUNDS SO FAR!

SLEEP: SO I FINALLY GOT A BOPPY PILLOW AND MY SLEEP IS SO MUCH BETTER NOW! IT IS STILL PRETTY UNCOMFORTABLE AT TIMES BUT THAT PILLOW DOES WONDERS! I HAVE BEEN HAVING SOME WEIRDO DREAMS AS USUAL, BUT I CAN’T REMEMBER ANY IN PARTICULAR EXCEPT ONE… WHICH WAS A SEX DREAM (SO WEIRD) AND I’M SURE NONE OF YOU WANT TO HEAR ABOUT THAT… WELL MOST OF YOU. 😉

MISSING: WELL I AM NOW BEGINNING TO MISS BEING ABLE TO GO FOR A NICE LONG WALK WITHOUT MUCH DISCOMFORT BUT NOW AFTER WALKING FOR JUST A FEW MINUTES IT LITERALLY FEELS LIKE SOMEONE DROPPED A 10 LB BOWLING BALL IN MY BELLY AND ALL MY LIGAMENTS AND SKIN ARE STRETCHING. IT IS PAINFUL AND SO UNCOMFORTABLE! BUT I AM STILL TRYING TO GET MY 10,000 STEPS IN A DAY FROM MY FITBIT!

CRAVING: I HAVE BEEN SOOO BAD THIS WEEK! I AM CONSTANTLY CRAVING SWEETS!!! ESPECIALLY CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES, IT’S REAL BAD.

FEELING: BIGGER AND BIGGER AND VERY STRETCHED!

GENDER: BABY GIRL!

BEST MOMENT OF THE WEEK: WELL I HAVE BEEN SO BAD AT POSTING LATELY AND I ACCIDENTALLY SKIPPED WEEK 25 SO WE HAD A LOT OF GREAT MOMENTS. BUT I GUESS ONE OF THEM WOULD BE WHEN OUR GOOD FRIENDS AND NEXT DOOR NEIGHBORS GOT A NEW PUPPY AND WE GOT TO GO WITH THEM TO GET HER!! SHE IS THE CUTEST THING EVER! A DACHSHUND/TERRIER MIX AND CURLY (OUR DOG) AND HER GET ALONG JUST GREAT.

LOOKING FORWARD TO: MY THIRD TRIMESTER WHICH BEGINS NEXT WEEK!! WAHOO! ALMOST 2/3 OF THE WAY THERE!

  1. Been following your cute belly shots for a few weeks now and I absolutely love them! I use them as inspiration for my own documentation… and I was wondering, do you use actions on your photos? do you have a set of actions to recommend? I just love the mood in these pictures!

    • Thank you Thrudy, you are so sweet! I do use actions on my photo’s in Lightroom and a lot of my pictures were taken with my iPhone when I didn’t have my camera so I just used the Afterlight app to edit those. I am obviously not a photographer and am very amateur at the whole editing thing so I purchased some actions from Red Leaf Boutique they have great actions! I hope that helped, and thanks again for your sweet compliments!
