26 Weeks Pregnancy Update

I'm 26 Weeks !

Pregnancy Highlights:

How Far Along: 26 Weeks and counting! I can't wait to meet you my sweet little boy!

Size of Baby: Little Robert is the size of an English Hothouse Cucumber. He is 14 to 14.8 inches long. He weighs about 1.5 to 2.2 pounds.Baby Development This Week: At long last little Robert can see!
For the first time ever, his eyelids have finally opened (remember: they were fused shut previously) and he's probably having his first moments of sight as you read this (or maybe it already happened while you were brushing your teeth or browsing the Internet or something).
In addition to taking his first visual impressions of his comfy amniotic-filled studio, your little
human-bean recently acquired the ability to move their head around.
That's right, if your child were clever enough (which they're not - yet), they could engage in that most basic of non-verbal communication - the head shake/nod. Not to mention, gawking!
In further anti-alien developments: your little super star’s head hair is starting to grow in!

Maternity Clothes: I wear maternity jeans and pants but everything else is regular. Love those stretchy leggings and jeggins!

Gender: It's a Boy!!! Robert William Christensen

Movement: I've been feeling the baby a lot more lately and higher in my belly especially at night! He is a busy little guy in there. I often feel like he's building a house!!

Sleep: I'm sleeping pretty well, thanks to my awesome pregnancy pillow! A little more aches and pain, but it's all worth it!

What I miss: Ugh!!! I would LOVE a great BIG sub sandwich!

Cravings: Cuties tangerines and Babybel Cheese, all the fruit I can get and Shredded Mini Wheat's!
Symptoms: Trouble getting out of bed in the morning while laying flat on my back. ha ha :) Also, a little shortness of breath in my ribs. Just an overall heavy feeling. Oh and the new one this week, bending over!

Best Moment this week: Besides feeling my sweetie move around in my belly, I have been enjoying making baby booties for Robert. As well as shopping for baby things with both Grandmas this week! :)

Blessings, Sarah
