26 weeks!

How far along? 26 weeks, this is going by so fast now that the sickness has ended!
Total weight gain/loss: I have not felt good this week so I am not going to step on the scale and make myself feel any worse.
Maternity clothes? yes and i don't think I will make it much longer without new bras, to bad they will probably just be nursing bras and nothing very cute!
Stretch Marks? still can not find one besides the very few I had from before I was pregnant and they are so light other people never even see them.
Sleep: It has been absolutely horrible this week! I can not stay comfortable for very long and I can not stay off my back which I think is hindering digestive issues even more than normal. Not sleeping well also makes me tired during the day and Just makes me fell like crap in general.
Best moment this week: Having Wes actually see my stomach move.
Food cravings: Nope and actually thanks to the digestive issues I don't even feel like eating.
Gender: BOY!
Labor Signs: no thank goodness I want to be able to get on that plane home!
Belly Button in or out? Still way in.
What I miss: Hhmmm...I could say a few things here this week. But being able to go the bathroom is on top of the list! Sorry if that is to much info, but it is my blog. And no I don't need any advice on the subject.
What I am looking forward to: Going home next week, our Dr. Appt. and just being able to get away for awhile.
Weekly Wisdom: Do whatever you feel comfortable doing without listening to everyone else's advice, but listen to your body! Also take what people say in stride. Hearing "oh your pregnant?", or "you don't even look like you have popped!" when you are carrying an extra 25+lb basketball on your stomach is not the most complimentary thing in the world, but I guess some people are "trying" to be polite. My instant response however is " How in the hell fat did you think I was before I was pregnant!?!?!"
Milestones: I accomplished a 5 mile walk on Sat, walking the mall for a few hours on Sun, 4 mile (2 straight up the mountain) hike on Mon and a 3.5 mile walk on only regret was that I didn't do my normal 3.5 mile walk Thursday because my walking partner couldn't make it! I feel great doing it and don't care if some people think it is to much. I plan on continuing to walk up until I give birth, the doctor better not even think of strapping me to a bed! Anyone who feels like walking when I am home let me know!
