26 Weeks!

We're 26 weeks! Well, in about 90 minutes, anyway. Everything is still going great! T kicks a lot, mostly my ribs, and she seems to really enjoy kicking when I'm trying to sleep. My ribs are getting sore, but not unbearable yet. I've realized this week that I'm getting to that point in my pregnancy where I can't seem to get comfortable, and this results in really crappy sleep. I've been waking up quite a bit at night to either change positions or get up to pee (again. and again.) and it takes me a good 15 minutes to get comfortable enough to fall back asleep. And the heartburn, ohmygoshy'all. They say if you have heartburn, you'll have a hairy baby. If this is true, T is going to look like Chewbacca. I've pretty much run through every over the counter medication, so I'm starting back at square one with Tums & Zantac. So far, it's not working.

But I'm not complaining! I know K would give her right arm to be peeing every 5 minutes and burping acid, so I am not going to complain. I try to keep K & J updated on the little things, like T kicking a lot of what I'm craving these days (pasta, cheese fries, chocolate milk- just FYI) because I don't want them to miss anything. It won't be long until they'll be sending ME updates- haha!

Here's a picture of me at 25 weeks. Even laying down, my belly looks big! And as my mom so kindly pointed out, it's bigger than my head :)


  1. Add some chili to those cheese fries and I'll join you with my big 'ol 19 week belly!

  2. Haha! Oh man, I can't imagine the awful heartburn chili would give me!

  3. Oh I eat chili... and suffer... but oh boy it's sooooo gooood when it's going down.

    ;) You look great Ivy.
