26 weeks

How far along: 26 weeks and 2 days

Baby Size: 14 inches, 1.7 pounds

Maternity clothes: yup

Sleep: I have been so tired lately! But that's great, because it means I sleep really well at night.

Best moment this week: We had a doctor's appointment yesterday, and I had to take my glucose test. I have been terrified about this for a couple of months now. I have no idea why--I guess I think that I'm such a sweet tooth, of course I would have gestational diabetes. But my doctor called me yesterday afternoon, and I passed! Whooo! No 3 hour test for me!

Food cravings: Yesterday, all I wanted were chicken wings. Really? I mean, I'm not a 20 year old college guy! Plus, I've only had chicken wings about 4 times in my life. But we got some and I loved it. But I don't want anymore anytime soon. The craving is completely fulfilled.

What I miss: Shaved ice--they don't have that here :(

What I'm looking forward to: Our tax rebate being put in our account so that I can buy the rocker!!!

Milestones: I passed the glucose test!!! Also, I have one more appointment at 30 weeks, and then I start my twice a month appointments.

Pregnancy symptoms: Heartburn. Plus, Jack likes to position his foot right on my bladder, and he kicks it ALOT! So I constantly feel like I need to go to the bathroom (sorry if that's TMI). Not fun...

Stretch marks: So far, nope!

Hooray passing the test & still no stretch marks. I request more preggo pictures. Thanks.

It's so fun reading your pregnancy journey. I'm following a college friends blog who is also 26 weeks AND having a boy. You both usually post the same day each week with the same title and the same picture of the baby's size (whoohoo... eggplant this week!). This week y'all both seemed MORE tired! I'm sure she wouldn't mind if you checked out her blog... "The Adventures of Baby Kirby". I'm so impressed with the no stretch marks update!
