Watch my 26 Week Pregnancy Vlog here! :)
How far along? 26 weeks! Emilia is now about 14 inches long and around 2 pounds! Similar to our 8 week old puppies, ha ha :)
Total weight gain/measurements: 15lbs total! My waist is 31" and my tummy is 36", same as last week.
Maternity clothes: I bought this dress in the rose colour from ASOS for my cousin's wedding in Italy! I paid extra for fast delivery...cutting it close I know! I am obsessed with maternity clothes shopping right now -- even if I don't end up buying anything I just love browsing...it's very dangerous!!
Stretch marks: Still none to report! I have been using the Dream Belly Stretch Mark Cream this week and I absolutely love it! Fairhaven Health were kind enough to send me two tubes of it as I liked the belly butter but found it too thick to use during the day underneath clothes. The cream is much easier to apply and feels lovely on my skin. It absorbs very quickly and is made with all-natural ingredients. Yay!
Sleep: Sleep was pretty good although I haven't been getting a lot of it because we've been going to bed so late and then waking up early as well. So I will usually fall asleep around 5pm for about an hour!
Best moment this week: Getting my highlights done!! I absolutely love my hair now and felt amazing afterwards :)
Miss anything? Nope!
Movement: Tons of movement like always :) I'm also getting used to her sleeping pattern because I now kind of know when she's most active during the day...she usually gets pretty hyper around mid-afternoon and then again late at night when we're going to bed. Also Jofus was playing with her again...tapping and jiggling my belly so that she would kick back, he he he :)
Food cravings: I don't think I had any this week! I still love donuts but I think that might just be a normal non-pregnancy related thing, ha ha!
Anything making you queasy or sick? Seafood! And I always forget to mention this but I have completely gone off tea this pregnancy. Even green tea, which I used to love. This has been the same way since the very beginning, it doesn't make me feel physically sick but I just really don't want it.
Labour signs: Nope, still no Braxton Hicks!
Symptoms: My boobs were quite itchy again this week and I barely used my Moo Goo cream because it kept ending up that they would get really bad whenever I was out of the house and didn't have it handy! I've also just spotted the beginnings of the linea nigra on my belly!! So weird...Jofus & my sister think it looks like my tummy is getting ready to split in half, not a very nice image...lol. I guess one of my symptoms has also been nesting because I'm constantly cleaning our house. The puppies might have something to do with that too though...we are toilet training them at the moment on pee-pee pads so there's a lot of clean-up involved!
Belly button in or out? In!
Wedding rings on or off? On!
Happy or moody most of the time: Happy! :)
Looking forward to: Sorrento - this day next week we will be there!! I'm so excited...I've started planning my outfits already!
