26 Weeks - Baby (Boy) #3

Another late post, since I'm 27 weeks now!  I'm hoping to catch up next week.

Not too much new to report this week - the munchkin is moving a lot stronger all of a sudden though!  He's getting big enough where he can push to one side of my belly and make it look all crooked!  I love that.  It's just so fun to watch him move around in there.  I've also been able to feel a few tiny body parts, like hands and feet, through my stomach this week.  He does not like it when I rest my book against my stomach - he tries to push it out of the way!  

I'm feeling good, no new symptoms.  Except that the weight is coming on alarmingly fast this time.  I'm probably 3-5 pounds heavier at this point than I was in previous pregnancies (that's just an estimate, I'd have to go back and look at my old pregnancy posts).  Yikes!  I'm attempting to cut out all simple sugars to try to get a handle on it.  I'm okay with an extra 3-5 pounds, I just don't want it to continue on this track or it will be an extra 15!

Mostly the last week has been filled with me trying to work on baby projects around the house (which is why it's been a little quieter around the blog lately).  I am probably 75% done with piecing together his baby quilt, and then I just have to take it in to get quilted.  Last week I cleaned up the house, organized the kid's clothes, found new places for some of their toys, and took a bunch of random things out of the nursery since it was kind of our dumping ground for presents throughout December.  Now we're actually getting somewhere.  

I also ordered a little outfit for his newborn pictures over the weekend, and it is so cute!  I can't wait to see him in it.  I've got the family's outfits planned for his newborn session, so now I just have to figure out what we'll all wear for my maternity session in a month.  Picking out clothes is the most stressful part of taking pictures to me.

The goals for this week: sort through Wyatt's old baby clothes to see what I still need to get for this little guy, wash baby clothes and organize them in his dresser, and start to organize his nursery!

You look great. Don't be so worried with the extra weight. You never know: Maybe he will be a bit bigger than your other TINY babies. Maybe he will be born a few weeks early and need that extra weight? Only God knows. Don't do anything drastic ;)
