bumpgate. week 26


26 weeks. You saucy minx you. I'm almost to the third trimester and that is really just coming up sooo very quickly. Before you know it Dom will be running towards his preschool classroom and I'll be sitting in the van all alone with a bottle of red. Wait what?

Boy/girl, girl/boy| There is a very proud and very confident young boy inside there. When we found out the gender Matt didn't send a photo of his face around to his brothers, he sent around a photo of the anatomical portion. Boys. Oh what fun I have in store for my future. 

The icks| I don't eat a lot. At meal time I should say. Mostly just one helping and less on the meat and more on the starch side of the track. And I mean. Yum.

The LB's| My last appointment got a grimace from my nurse practitioner but I maintain that was just coming off the holiday weekend and one too many helpings of mac and cheese. Because that's something I cannot say no to. Even though I know it hurts me. But I checked again and again since then and I'm up 10 pounds. I don't think that's horribly bad do you? No.

The eats| Iced Tea. Does that count as an eat? No I'm quite sure it doesn't. But I just love it. With Letty it was Snapple. With David I just don't remember what it was.... and now I'm back to tea. I like to eat chips too. See aforementioned grimace from the nurse eh? I blame the Utz Factory.

The movings around happening on the inside| There is a lot going on in there. Dom and I bond. No hiccups to be found but just plain movement. Letty felt him kick which was pretty amazing to see, as she could have cared less about her other brother and belly movement. People can see my stomach move which is always quite entertaining.

On the nesting front| All the nesting. All the organizing. All the cleaning. It's happening all around. Partially it's nesting and partially it's all a defense mechanism for the loss of my eldest a few mornings a week. I get a lot done though. That's for sure. The nursery is totally done. All of David's clothes are unpacked and organized by type/size (did you expect anything less?) for Dominic. I have been experimenting with a new cleaning schedule... one that has stood the test of time through two other children and a move.... but I think what it's turning in to will suit me best. 




  1. You look fantastic! Not much longer now!

  2. Can't believe you are already this far along! The bump is precious!

  3. ps i love his room already and it wasn't even done yet (so close though) when i visited. love

  4. Such a cute bump! Can't wait to see his nursery :)

  5. 26 weeks already!! Wow! I know it goes much faster for the non-pregnant party but you really are almost done. How exciting!!

  6. ahhh the nesting front is my fav! i bet it feels so good to have the nursery taken care of!!!

  7. Wow you're 26 weeks already? Seems like yesterday that I was just about to enter the third trimester. They aren't kidding when they say it goes by fast! And only 10 lbs?! That's great!

  8. How has this gone by so quickly? My friend just had her boy, and my other found out she is having a boy. So now I'm all back on the babybabybaby train. I need to get back on the notrightnowbutmaybelater train. And iced tea totally counts as an eat...esp if it is with ice.

  9. What is it with that area of the country and chips? I don't even like chips but lawd help me when I find myself in Pittsburgh and there are bags of Herr's BBQ Chips everywhere.


I love hearing from you. Honest I do. You won't find my response to you here, but in your inbox. F.Y.I.
