26 weeks

Week: 26.
Baby is the size of:  A head of lettuce.
Weight gain: Up approximately 5 pounds from pre-pregnancy weight, 13 or 14 net.
Cravings: Olive Garden, as always. At the moment not much else.
Sleep:  Heartburn wakes me up at least 3-4 nights per week
(thank you, baby Jesus, for Tums). And the urge to go to the bathroom. So sleep is not great.
Movement: Hiccups, kicks, punches. The whole gamut.
Symptoms:  Heartburn. I see the weight creeping everywhere, not just in my belly like with Elden, which reinforces my suspicions that #3 is a she. See also: happenings.
Happenings:  Welp, the pregnancy Gods aren't shining on me this go around. I have some mild (first degree) prolapse. I also have a slight umbilical hernia. My OB isn't horribly concerned about either one of these at this point in time but I am not supposed to do any heavy lifting. We will need to reevaluate after I deliver to determine whether I will need surgery for either issue. I also failed my 1-hour glucose test last week by 3 mg/dl (normal is 140 and below, I clocked in at 143). The huge slice of birthday cake I ate at work a few hours prior to my test probably didn't do me any favors so I don't anticipate failing my 3-hour test but I still have to do it to rule out gestational diabetes--that's on the agenda for today. Still thinking girl. Still feeling like a house.
