Pregnancy Update - 26 weeks

I thought I was about due for a pregnancy update since...well, I have yet to have one and I'm 2/3 of the way done baking my little baby burrito. The first trimester went so smoothly and it was way easier than the first time around but I knew it was too good to be true. This 2nd trimester is kicking my butt.

Current pregnancy happenings:

  • The most horrifying, severe, debilitating hip pain!!! Not that I'm complaining or anything...
  • Baby enjoys using the womb as her trampoline 24/7. We like to party at midnight. She is 100 times more active than Payton ever was. 
  • Way more emotional this time around. Damn you pregnancy hormones! Luckily hubby has been so understanding and sweet.
  • My appetite has slowed down a bit. I went through a phase where I wanted to eat all the time and I ate A LOT. I was putting my husband to shame, but now I am only hungry or in the mood for certain things.
  • No stretch marks or anything yet - crossing my fingers since I am so huge this time around! 
  • Weight: 130 lbs.  +15 from pre-pregnancy (114-115 lbs.) Eeek!!
  • I feel as if time is speeding by while simultaneously dragging on...
  • I nap almost any day that I get a chance! I have really been struggling with fatigue. According to my doctor its probably from my anemia but I also chalk it up to my two lovely ladies. They are so worth every ache, pain, and sleepless night! 
  • AND I have almost everything we need I just need to clean and set everything up. The only thing I have to get is a toddler bed or another crib (But I have a bassinet for the first couple months anyways), some winter newborn clothes, newborn diapers and more cloth diapers. :)
