Pregnancy Week by Week: Week 26


Where did baby go? I'm wondering the same thing. It's funny how a slight turn in my hips makes my bump look completely different! Don't worry, all is well and our little one is still growing. And kicking up a storm.

Week 26 was pretty fantastic, actually. I had an appointment with my OB and she was encouraging about my lack of weight gain (rounding out to 5lbs per trimester), stellar blood pressure (110/60) and gestational diabetes test that I "passed with flying colors". Leaving the appointment I was feeling especially awesome. Then, my day got even better when I received my results from my professional licensing exam: PASS! I'm pretty sure things couldn't have gotten better this week!

In other big news, the nursery furniture arrived! There's something about having a crib in your home that makes the whole "we're really having a baby" thing sink in! Everything is starting to come together and it's just so exciting.

  3. Okay, so I've been lurking on your blog for for-ever. But I have to comment and ask today about that aqua changing mat in the picture. What kind is it, and where ever did you get it?? The reason I'm asking? Well, I've already started working on our own aqua and yellow nursery for a baby we plan to have in the next year. But I swear I'm not trying to copy you (at least, not completely)! :-)

    1. It's the Cooshee changer by BabySmart. They're hard to track down, but more should be available soon! They're so great since you don't have to worry about soiling/laundering a changing pad cover. And feel free to copy, aqua and yellow is quite a trend right now!

    1. It's the "mint green" color! Super cute, but probably hints at more of a "pistachio".
