How Far Along: 26 Weeks
Size of Baby: About 14 inches and about a pound and two-thirds.
Food Size (According to my e-mail from BabyCenter.com): An English hothouse cucumber... I mean is this a regular cucumber with a fancy name? BabyCenter.com is a little fancy with their fruits and veggie for me these days!
Total Weight Gain: 19 pounds... seems to be going up a pound a week. I'd be very satified with a pound a week finishing off at 33 pounds weight gain. It's those 3-4 pound weeks at the end that get ya! I can't imagine putting on 31 pounds in the next 14 weeks though to match my 50 pounds I put on with Ryder! AHHH
Maternity Clothes: Is loving the large $6 tanks and large $8 v-neck t's at Target!! Thank you for helping me avoid maternity shirts for at least another couple of weeks with all the room you offer in the belly area :)
Gender: It's a BOY! Landon Brennan Lutz
Movement: I'd like to think that he is actually rolling now. It's slightly painful and not as enjoyable as the cute little kicks. He likes to stick his butt up and make my belly look funny (I think it's his butt?), and he has found my ribs! OUCH! While at one of Derrik's basketball games this week he kicked down on my bladder so hard I thought I was going to pee on myself right there in public... luckily there was no damange done! HAHA
Food Cravings: Anything :) My hunny brougt me home a strawberry shake from McDonalds last night... he loves me! Honestly it was because he wanted one himself and knew i'd kill him if he came home without one for me, but he still loves me!
Labor Signs: no comment until third trimester or so
Sleep: Has had two amazing nights in a row of no pee breaks (and no Ryder breaks)! They were amazing :)
How’s Ryder Handling It: I put the swing and bouncer together last week when we got them out of the boxes, and he has been taking his baby and putting him in them. He also likes to pretend to put the baby down for naps... it's pretty cute.
What is the same/different as the last time: I don't remember having such severe braxton hicks contractions with Ryder ever and have been having them for a while now with Landon.
Symptoms: Braxton hicks contractions... hips some... some back pain... but still doing pretty good.
Best Moment This Week: Snuggling Logen and realized i'll have my own sweet little guy to cuddle in about three-ish months! Also.. getting everything we have for Landon all put away and ready. Now it's just time to get everything else we need. At least the first phase of it all is done :)
What I Am Looking Forward To: Un-baby related, but we go to Monster Jam this Saturday and our first little man is beyond excited about this!!! You have NO idea!!!
