How far along: 6 months ~ 26 weeks ~
Size of baby: about 2 pounds, about 14 inches long, about the size of a head of lettuce!
Total weight gain/loss: 20 pounds already.
Maternity clothes: Bought some nice nursing bras, dresses, and tees from Target. Definitely my go to spot for maternity clothes. Also love my maternity jeans from the Gap.
Movement: Yup! Mia is kicking and rolling around in there!
Food cravings: ICE! lots of ice in my icy cold water! Cake has also been a big one I am trying not to give into all the time. Fresh fruit, cereal, and salty snacks are also tasting yummy right now.
What I miss: my waist! I am just now starting to miss being able to have a drink. I see sangria and cosmos in my future this summer! Sleeping through the night, being able to do more physical activity.
Sleep: many nights of insomnia and then mid-afternoon and early evenings where I’ll be so tired that I fall asleep on the couch and sleep quite heavily.
Symptoms: Insomnia, back pain, heavier breathing, getting up to go to the bathroom multiple times throughout the day/night….all worth it for our little girl!
Best moments: feeling Mia kick stronger and stronger and have Mike see/feel them too. Beginning to get the Nursery together and officially ordering the glider, crib and dresser!
What I’m looking forward to: my MN baby shower in two weeks! Starting birthing classes with Mike on Monday, and our ultrasound on May 11th. We get to see how our little Mia has grown and will hopefully leave with some good 3D/4D pictures!
