Bump to Baby: 26 Weeks

You are now at about two pounds and over 14-inches long, the length of a zucchini. Everything I read said that you will soon be cramped but I'm pretty sure we are already there. Your eyes are now beginning to open which means you can now see. However it turns out your current residence is pretty boring. Your brain activity is really gearing up now which means you are more responsive.

This week has been awesome and not so awesome. First of all we hit viability week! This is a big deal because that means if you come at this point you would stand a good shot at surviving. However you aren't welcome and your lungs still have quite a bit of
maturing to do before we get there. So stay where you are but it's nice to know we are at that point now. The not so awesome part is how uncomfortable I am. I may not have put on a lot of weight, but I am seriously uncomfortable. Bending over puts a lot of pressure on my belly which makes me hurt. The skeletal issues I had with your sister and brother is back in full force and really bothering me. You have a tendency to sit low and you really like putting pressure on my bladder, especially when I'm walking which doubly makes me uncomfortable. So yeah, not feeling awesome physically. I'm still struggling quite a bit with food. I'm starving all the time but I can't seem to find anything that I want to eat. And even after I eat I tend to feel pretty crummy. But I'm doing my best to find things. I just haven't had much in the way of cravings and I don't seem to have an aversion until I'm actually eating so it's been a little rough. I'm also not sleeping great which probably is because I'm so uncomfortable. It's hard to get a good night's sleep when you are never comfortable, not to mention I have started getting up a couple times a night to go to the bathroom. It's a little rough.

My pregnancy brain has been so-so this time around. I think part of that is due to the fact that I have mom brain so there isn't that much difference. I have definitely had a few weird moments. I tend to get forgetful. I struggle with finding the right word when talking which is really frustrating for me. But as far as moments where I get completely lost or do something completely out of character, I haven't had many. One of those moments came when I went to preheat the oven for frozen pizza. All was good until I went to put it in then set the timer. We waited out the 20 minutes then Rob went to get it out only to discover that it wasn't cooked. I had set a timer and also turned off the oven. So we had to start the whole process all again. That was a bit frustrating. My other moment was less pregnancy brain and more just hormones. I had been eating some M&M's then decided I didn't want to eat them anymore so I gave them to Rob to finish so I wouldn't. He didn't really want them but agreed and started eating them. It was then that I got really upset and took them back. I decided I didn't want him to have them afterall. I then closed the bag and put them on the dresser. That was over a month ago and they are still sitting there uneaten. He was just mostly confused. I didn't really want them but I was having trouble letting them go. Only a pregnant woman would get to emotional about a bag of M&Ms.
