Bumpdate: 26 weeks

How far along are you? 26 weeks 
Total weight gain: 15+ lbs 
Maternity Clothes? Mostly. 
Stretch Marks? None on the belly.
Sleep: It's weird. I have good naps, but sleeping comfortably through the night is getting difficult. Have I mentioned that we've been sleeping on a full-size mattress? We've had it from the beginning of our marriage. It's always been kind of a tight fit for us, but now that I'm getting bigger, it's just getting too small. Plus I bought a body pillow, which I obviously don't regret, but it makes for less room, ha. I'm looking forward to getting a bigger bed when Ryan gets his first couple of paychecks ;) 
Best moments: Shopping for Ryan's first Father's Day present and writing him a card. 
Missing anything? Ibuprofen 
Movement? Yes! It's more rapid and her kicks have even hurt a couple of times. 
Food Cravings: Banana Nutella crepes. 
Symptoms: Heartburn. 
Belly Button in or Out? So shallow! 
Happy or Moody? Moody. Mostly because I'm afraid I'll never make friends! Ha. But it's only been a week, so. 
Looking Forward to: Catching up on Netflix. How sad is that? I suppose I can start a new book. I just finished reading The Fault in Our Stars for the second time, so I plan on seeing that in the theater. Any good books you can recommend? 

My goals for this week include:
1. Finding an OBGYN or midwife. 
2. Starting a new book
3. Putting the rest of these random boxes away 
4. Organizing the kitchen
5. Hanging some photos/art/decor? 
6. Finding the library
7. Becoming a little more acquainted with this city

That last one though. So far I can drive to the grocery store, church, the hospital, Ryan's work, Target, and the mall without my iPhone giving me directions at every turn (that's all I really need, right??). Amazingly, all these locations are 5 minutes away or less from our apartment. (Great location, huh?) My bubble is very small. Speaking of the mall, I took my first visit last night. I stepped into a Lush Cosmetics store for the first time and walked out with an amazing perfume. I never wear perfume, but I can see myself wearing this one daily. It smells like jasmine. There were so many fun things that store has to offer, but I resisted. 

In other news, we did not visit the zoo as planned, but today Ryan signed us up for a couple of Pogo-Passes. They were on sale for $40 each! Those allow us two visits to the zoo, two visits to the aquarium, the bowling alley, a water park, etc. I can't really go to a water park, and there are a couple of other places on the pass that would be pointless for me to visit, but even if we just use it for the zoo and aquarium it's still a pretty good deal. Is bowling safe for pregnant women...? 

And before I forget, Happy Father's Day! We are eating nachos for dinner and I might be too excited about that. 


  1. You're seriously the cutest prego girl! :) I love that red lip on you! And sounds like you're learning the city pretty fast to me! I'm the worst with directions/navigating


  2. have you gotten a bath bomb from lush yet? get a bath bomb and a bubble bar. you will have the best bath of your life. but can pregnant women take baths since they can't get in hot tubs? i don't know haha. but, whenever it can happen, you should try it! lush is seriously so amazing. also you will make friends haha. i know how you feel... new wards are the worst because everyone is already established lol. you're cute. look at your cute shoes. TOO CUTE. your baby is going to be such a beautiful child.

    1. I can take a bath, it just can't be steaming hot. I was eying the bath bombs! I would have gotten one if I had more money to spend.

  3. also thanks for not having the "please prove you're not a robot" word verification.

  4. SO cute! I am totally jealous of those maternity jeans. I couldn't find any that were cute and fit good.


    1. They are actually jeggings! So no pockets. And I'm already starting to outgrow them :(
