26 Weeks

26 Weeks: Baby O2 is the size of a scallion.  
He.she weighs 1 2/3 pounds and is 14 inches long.  This week little one's hearing is improving and he/she is inhaling and exhaling amniotic fluid to help with the development of the lungs.  If Baby O2 is a boy then his little man "bits" are also descending into place- which takes 2-3 months.

How far along? 26 Weeks
Total weight gain? Up 13 pounds.
Maternity clothes? Only in maternity pants.
Stretch marks? Nope- lathering on my cocoa butter like a mad woman though.
Sleep? I fall asleep instantly but wake up anytime I have to move because it kills my ribs.
Best moment this week? Getting to FINALLY snuggle our nephew, Ian.  He is such a cuddler and loves to grunt and squeak.  I'm pretty sure that Jeryn, Cole, Ian, and Baby O2 are going to be quite the crew of crazy cousins!  Can't wait :)
Miss anything? The days of no rib pains. 
Movement? The kicks really got strong this week and the movements can now be seen across my whole stomach.  Love seeing those little ripples and waves.  All the kicks are still down low which is a good thing for my ribs.
Food cravings? Nothing really this week.  
Anything making you queasy/sick? Nothing
Gender? 98 days until his/her birthday.
Labor Signs? No- I'd hope not!
Symptoms? The only real symptom I feel would be the rib pains I mentioned that are being caused by my uterus/organs pushing them out of place.  It's definitely something that I can deal with and try not to complain about.  Afterall, a healthy and happy baby is the main focus.  Who needs to move and breathe without hurting haha.
Belly button in or out? Completely flat in some moments and then puffs out in others. 
Wedding rings on or off? On 
Happy or moody? Happy- we are sooooo very blessed and remind ourselves of this everyday when we feel slightly overwhelmed with all we have going on.  Good thing we like being busy cause life sure isn't slowing down anytime soon.
Looking forward to? Halloween with Cole Man this year!!!  He wore his costume to a party this weekend and was quite the stud.  Can't wait for Friday when he gets to come to school with Dad for my classroom party and then for trick-or-treating that night!
Daddy moment?  Trent has officially made the "Must Do Before Baby O2" list and the amount of things on there is slightly scary.  Poor guy :(  Especially cause the majority of them I can't help out with.  One day at a time, one project at a time, right?!
Big Brother Cole moment: Cole Man was a trooper this weekend.  We were on the go non-stop and he was so happy no matter what we were doing.  At the Halloween party he participated in his first karaoke session and let's just say he was a BIG FAN.  He took control of one of the microphones and all he would sing was "Dadadada."  He definitely partied hard and slept like a rock that night. We also taught him how to lay down in the leaves so we could cover him up tonight.  He says "night-night" and lays down on the ground laughing like it's the funniest thing in the world.  Gosh, it's so fun experiencing everything through his eyes again.
