6.5 Months but its feels like 8 months!

How far along? 26 Weeks! (6.5months)

Total weight gain: 20lbs

How big is baby? According to baby center, she is the size of an English hothouse cucumber. She weighs about 1-2/3 lbs and is 14 inches long.

Maternity clothes? 90% of my clothing is now maternity.

Stretch Marks? Nope!

Best moment this week? Seeing my husband become interested in our birthing class. For the past few weeks the men looked like they were dragged into the birthing class but week 5 something changed. 

Movement? She is moving a lot more.

Food Cravings? Sweets!!!!

What I miss: Still alcohol! I really want a glass of wine and to drink beer during happy hour instead of ice tea.

I’m looking forward to clearing off that baby to do list. There seems like soooo much to do and so much to read.

Nausea/Vomiting? Not since October!

Belly Button in or out? OUT!

Sleep? Is okay but the dreams are crazy! My dreams are so vivid not always in good way.

Weekly Wisdom: This is something I never would have thought to do until my mother in law asked me if I wanted an organic crib mattress. I thought why would I ever need that, but then I did some research. Friends, please read about organic and eco-friendly nursery furniture.
