Pregnancy Highlights!

Pregnancy Highlights:

How Far Along: 26 weeks!

Size of baby: 
Your baby's the size of a head of lettuce!

He's still growing in the 13.6- to 14.8-inch and 1.5- to 2.5-pound range, and developing his senses, features and talents!

Baby Development This Week: 
·          His eyes are forming, and his eyes will soon start to open.
·         And his eyelashes are now grown, too.
·         He's getting his immune system ready for life on the outside by soaking up your antibodies.
·         He's taking breaths, too. They're of amniotic fluid, not air, but it's still good practice.

Maternity Clothes: Regular shirts, stretchy capris, and skirts. Bra size is still everchanging…lol. (Shopping trip planned soon for maternity swim suit, some slip on sketcher type shoes, and other clothing needs…and yeah, probably a bra too. ;)

Gender: IT’S A BOY! John Declan Leviner! He will be called Declan. Declan is of Irish origin and means full of goodness. J

Movement: He is becoming more and more active as the days go by!

Sleep: Not so great. I’m learning to drink less at the end of the day to decrease my bathroom visits. ;)

What I miss: Just being able to lean over and get around better. Also being able to wear some of my old clothes.
Cravings: Mostly salty foods.

Symptoms: backaches, harder to move around and lean over, harder to sleep, Braxton hicks.

Best Moment this week: John getting to feel Declan kick. Declan doesn’t seem to like other people trying to feel his kicks…lol.
