26 Weeks

Interesting tidbit - baby can dream when she sleeps in my belly!  How cool!

I've kept the heartburn away with zantac twice per day.  I hate the thought of needing to take it all the time - but I know the alternative is to have trouble getting food/drink down and being unbelievably uncomfortable, so I'm sticking with it for now.

I also am going to mention that my face has finally cleared up over the past few weeks - I've been so cautious about saying anything for fear of jinxing myself.  I've been really good about using the same bar of soap at least once per day, and then exfoliating about once per week.  It seems to be working.

One weird symptom that has crept up is that my left lower ribs feel tingly - like they are moving or something.  And they are sore when I push on them.  Any of you ever experienced this?  Is it that they are expanding for the uterus to move up under them?

Anyways, according to people around me, I've really popped overnight.  I actually saw a reflection in the mirror at school and thought, wow that girl is pregnant too, then realized it was my bump.  It's really crazy how quickly our bodies change in such a short period of time.

26 week picture (once again, forgot to have the hubs take them - hopefully he'll take some tonight because mine are blurry!).


  1. Cute belly pic! I'm jealous your face has cleared up... my face acted OK up until about the beginning of my third tri, and now I'm a waddling hippo crater face. Nice image huh. Haha.

  2. Awww cute picture!! BTW are you taking classes right now?? Everyone thinks I am CRAZY for taking classes and being pregnant...but o'well!

  3. YAH!! What a cute bump! I love that she can dream...

  4. I love it! you guys should look to do a pregnancy photo shoot (or at least have a nice portrait of the two of you with your pregnant belly).


Leave me your thoughts!
