Pregnancy Update: 26 Weeks and Bump Style Roundup

I’m 26 weeks along now, which means my second trimester will be coming to an end soon. I can’t believe how quickly this pregnancy has gone by, and I know that October will be here before I know it. I’m not even close to ready for baby girl’s arrival, so I’m hoping that the “nesting” feeling will kick in soon so I can get the nursery (and everything else) in gear. 

Feeling? Still feeling good overall, although I’m starting to feel huge! In the last few weeks my belly has really grown, and many of my coworkers have pointed that out as well (in a nice way). Also, I’m starting to get some swelling in my feet and ankles by the end of the day, which I also experienced when I was pregnant with Jona (also in the summer). 

Size of baby? This week, she's being compared to a butternut squash, which seems about right when I look at my belly. 

Movement? Yes, this little girl moves constantly it seems! Any time I sit down or lay down she’s moving, and at night before I go to sleep she seems to be doing a workout routine in there. I remember Jona moving too, but not this much. 

Weight gain? Oh boy. So I gained 11 pounds at my last doctor’s appointment, so I’m up to 24 pounds so far. I’m trying not to worry about it. Sure, I could eat more salads and less ice cream, but if I can't enjoy food when I'm pregnant, when the heck can I? 

Cravings? I’m still loving lemonade, breakfast food, and ice cream. Fresh peaches and cherries have been especially good lately too. 

Aversions? I have an aversion to not eating. No, seriously, there’s really nothing that doesn’t sound good right now. I’m still drinking my coffee iced, but that may be because it’s about a million degrees outside. 

Wearing? All the dresses. It has been HOT lately, so I can’t stand to wear pants too often. I’m living in dresses and skirts, trying to stay cool.

Here are a few looks from the past few months of my pregnancy. It's fun to look back and see how the bump has grown!

Have a great weekend! I'm taking Monday off but I'll be back with a style post on Tuesday. See you then!
