26 weeks and sick

Well good evening all you lovely beautiful amazing readers! I hope this Saturday is going amazingly for you. Most 24 year olds my age are out partying or some other shenanigan, but I? Knocked up, married and in bed watching tv while the hubbs plays on his iphone. I wouldn't have it any other way :) Today my mom, the mister, and I headed to Apple Hill for some fun in this beautiful weather {and Nick headed up there for the apple beer -- yes, apple beer. It's delish, don't judge}. After a fun day browsing crafts and pumpkins that you'd have to sell a kidney just to afford, we headed home since Nick and I had to be back in our neck of the woods at 3 to get my car that was getting some new {and much needed!} tires put on them. That's when it really hit. I woke up this morning with a touch of a sore throat but tried to shake it off. No such luck. Around 3:30, it was a full blown sore throat. Oh and I had a few sneeze attacks. I opted out of my full blown weekly grocery shopping trip and decided to just stop and get a few things and pregnancy friendly cold beverages {POM juice}, and went home to settle on the couch with the hubbs and catch up on our DVR. Blah! Lets hope I am up and running w/out the fabulous hot nose/ hot eyes combo, sore throat and plugged up ears before Monday.

Since this week at work has been insanely out of the norm busy, I didn't' even have a chance to do my '26 week pregnant' update. So without further ado, please read on, while I go poor myself a nice stiff drink -- consisting of POM juice and water on rocks

How far along? 26 weeks, some books say I am in my 3rd trimester, but says it's not until I start week 28.

Baby's size? He is about 1.5-2lbs, and is about 14 inches long : the size of an English cucumber

Weight Gain? 15lbs total

Maternity clothes? Yes and some cute ones at that!

Stretch marks? Nope. Still lubing up the belly with EVOO

Belly button in or out? Very shallow.

Sleep? I've slept for sound this past week. Im chalking it up to how busy I was at work

Foods I am loving? PB&J!! Oh mama, I could eat pb&j's with a nice glass of ice cold non fat milk all day everyday. Still have my sweet tooth, surprise surprise

Foods I am hating? Ground turkey and Chinese food

Best moment this week? Feeling every kick and roll.

Movement? Tons. According to articles I've been reading, he is developing sleeping patterns in the womb. Let's just hope that involves sleeping so mama can sleep too

Symptoms? This little man causes his mama to be one hungry lady. My eyes seem to be bigger than my stomach because I'll eat and get full super quick. I thought it was too soon for him to be taking up too much room in my belly for my stomach to expand, but maybe not.

Gender? A mini Nick

What I miss? I do miss a nice cocktail or going to sushi and not having to worry which rolls have cooked fish and which don't. Oh and caffeine!

What I'm looking forward to? Painting his room next weekend and our babymoon/Denver trip coming up :)

Weekly Wisdom: Once morning sickness passes in the 1st trimester (if your lucky), pregnancy flies by. I can't believe my 1st pregnancy is more than halfway done and the holidays are already coming up!

Emotions: Feeling really good still. I notice people at my work get on my nerves waaaaaay more than they normally did and I'm also more sensitive.
