26 Weeks!

How far along?  26 weeks
Baby Size: Weighs about 1 2/3 lbs and is 14 inches long.
(UPDATE 8/21/12:  Per Ultrasound our baby weighs 2 lbs 2 oz!)
Total weight gain/loss:  15+ lbs  
Maternity clothes:  Yup... loving yoga capris and maxi dresses right now!
Stretch marks:  So far so good.  
Sleep:  I had a few bad nights of sleep this week.  I felt like I was getting up every hour to use the bathroom!  
Best moment this week:  It's a tie... our crib was delivered and I got to celebrate at my friend's baby shower this weekend!
Miss Anything?  Being pain free.  I tried to walk on the treadmill (at an extremely slow pace) and I could only last 15 minutes.  Even that little bit of walking made the back and sciatica pain horrible for the rest of the day!
Movement:  Constantly.  At first it was only when I was lying down but now it's all the time throughout the day.  I can't wait for Chris to be able to feel him!
Food Cravings:  Fruit and ice cream!  Anything sweet really.  
Anything making you queasy or sick?  Still just the smell of fish.  
Gender:  BOY!!!
Labor Signs?  Thankfully, no!
Symptoms:  The heartburn and acid reflux keeps getting worse.  Thankfully it's only at night and if I drink a glass of milk before I go to sleep it really does help.        
Belly Button in or out?  Getting more shallow every day.
Wedding rings on or off?  Off, I'm glad I put my wedding band on a necklace.  
Happy or Moody most of the time:  Happy!  
Looking forward to:  I go for another ultrasound tomorrow to see how this little boy is growing.  I really hope that everything is going well and he's getting the nutrients he needs!  I'm also excited that my brother and Tyler are visiting this week!

This morning I had my glucose test.  I was able to drink the yummy orange beverage at home and then just go to the doctor's office 15 minutes before my blood test.  The first few sips weren't bad and I was almost scoffing at people who describe it as horrible.  But then as I kept drinking it, the aftertaste bothered me more than anything.  It also made me burp a lot, and I got to experience the aftertaste some more.  I definitely wouldn't want to drink this stuff on a regular basis, but it wasn't as bad as I expected.
