26 weeks {babybrink#2}


Size of baby: the size of a scallion (who comes up with this unappetizing food comparisons?!) or nearly as long as a zucchini.

Movements: he finally reached my ribs! One day he was exploring above my belly button and he kept knocking my ribs that whole day. I was hoping to hold out a little longer before he could reach that high, ha ha! Also, his movements are so big now that you can watch the movement move my belly around.

Cravings: I don't recall any specific cravings... maybe that's because I was bad and ate whatever I wanted. No time for cravings when I'm stuffing my face with Krispy Kreme donuts, oops :)

Miss anything: I can tell you that I'm getting to the point where I will miss eating pain free. I've been experiencing more heart burn as my belly grows! Thank goodness I don't totally despise tums! Those were my best friend by the time Mia was born, ha ha!

Random: I'm discovering the faintest signs of linea nigra. I had it with Mia and I must admit, it's not my favorite, ha!

Best moment of the week: so this hasn't only happened this past week, but it needs to be documented! As I've mentioned before, we've told Mia the name we think we will use once he's born (we will wait until we meet him to officially decide if it's the perfect fit) and sometimes we ask her what baby brother's name is to see if she remembers. It's quite common to get this for her answer- "um, baby Jesus?!" It cracks us up every time! She adores baby Jesus so obviously we should name her brother after Christ :)

So sweet, baby Jesus. I'm actually surprised she doesn't say the name you told her since she seems so good at remembering all things baby!

Jessica said...

I love that Mia wants to name her baby brother Jesus! I had a friend who's daughter wanted to name her baby brother "Toby Dump Truck" so see, Mia has much better taste haha!

Marli said...

Melissa said...

Your bump is so darn precious!!! I miss those little wiggles in my belly, but I sure do love having my sweet boy on the outside, too :)

You look so cute! I love that dress. Also, I'm so glad you called out the food comparisons. I'm always so confused when I read pregnancy updates and hear a fruit/vegetable that I don't even know what it looks like! As always, Mia makes my day.

You are looking adorable as ever!!
The rib kicks are no joke. Marcus was breech, so I never experienced the feeling. But, woah!
Love that Mia thinks her baby brother's name is Jesus. That is about the sweetest thing ever.

Baby Jesus - the best! You look adorable!

Janna Renee said...

Aww...who wouldn't want baby Jesus as a brother? Girl you look so tiny!! You are supposed to be bigger for your second child, not tiny! I have Linea Nigra or whatever it's called, but it doesn't bother me.

ah ha ha "Baby Jesus", so cute! I hear you with the heartburn... I suffer from bad heart burn anyway so I've had it since day 1 and have to take medication for it... TUMS are also my bff this time around ;) You're looking great! I can't believe you're 26 weeks already! ! ! :)
