Baby Mav Weeks 25 & 26

We are sssuuupppperrr close to the third trimester, which is crazy! I really can't believe how fast time has gone and I don't even want to think about how fast it will continue to go by. We have finally started on the nursery and we have a ways to go, but I am loving it. Cam likes to touch my belly and ask if his girl is awake and I pretty much melt every. single. time. He is going to be such a great dad.

Speaking of Cam he has said some pretty funny things recently and I wish I would have written them all down. One morning a couple weeks ago I was getting my breakfast in the kitchen and he said "well you're looking hefty". He got the death glare and gave me that sly grin and it officially hit me that I am going to be in big trouble if Cambree is a mini cam! One night last week while getting ready for bed I was brushing my teeth and he said "that belly button is looking a little questionable"... and I had to laugh and choke on my toothpaste because that is exactly how it looks and I am kinda scared for it to officially pop... I actually don't like that expression either so I am just going to ignore my belly button all together while I can, it is all kind of gross.

Another time that he made me melt was when I was telling him about our family plans to head to Colorado for a week in the cabin and I had just mentioned it being a trip to take the grandkids and he freaked out thinking I meant that his parents were going to be taking Cambree when she was just a month old... he said um Bailee they can't take her without US yet and I just smiled. Sweet guy is already taking care of his little girl.

We head to the doctor next week and then we are almost to the point of going every two weeks... yikes!

week 25

Baby: Cambree is the size of a cauliflower or a rutabaga and about 1.5 to 2.5 pounds! Little bit is around 13 to 14 inches. She now knows which way is up and which way is down. She is starting to grow more hair and it now has a true color and texture. She is moving more and more. I think she is most active in the middle of the day and early morning.

Weight: I weighed 109 on my home scale this week.

Symptoms: I started taking my recommend iron supplements and they are terrible. They had made me sick each time I have taken them so I am now trying to find a better alternative. The sickness is not just the irregular stomach problems, it full on makes me nauseous and gives me terrible stomach pain for hours. I am still having some indigestion, mostly at night once I lay down. Other than those little issues I have been feeling great.

Sleep: I have been sleeping not as soundly as before. I wake up a few times throughout the night and sometimes I will be wide away ready for the day and other times I will just toss and turn because I can't get comfortable. It is a chore to move around and move all of my pillows. I am thinking the people who invented those pregnancy pillows may have been right, but I still can't get myself to spend the money on one. So, for now I will stick with my three pillows and continue to huff and puff while rearranging.

Cravings: I haven't had any specific cravings, but if I think of food then I really really want it. It hasn't been anything weird though mostly my normal foods that I have always eaten and really liked. My appetite is definitely there though. I want to eat all the things all the time.

Clothes: I have officially outgrown clothes and want to get rid of all the things in my closet. I am trying to slowly go through my clothes as I know there will come a time when I do need other clothes to wear that are not big and baggy. I really want to just overhaul my whole closet! Good thing I am keeping busy with the baby nursery.

week 26

Baby: Cambree is the length of a green onion or as big as a head of lettuce. She now has eyelashes and her eyes are forming. She is able to take breaths and is practicing for life outside of the womb. Her ears are better developed and she can her more now and is more sensitive.

Weight: One morning this week I weighed 108, but I am not sure how accurate that is. We go to the doctor next week so we shall see.

Symptoms: The iron supplements still made me sick so I quit taking them and will be trying some different chewables that I had found online. I also plan on adding some iron boosting smoothies to my morning routine. I have noticed that it is harder to sit up sometimes and breathing is more difficult. The baby is now all up in my space and she moves constantly. I felt her kick my bladder the other day. Speaking of bladder I pee all. the. time.

Sleep: Haven't slept the best this week, but am thankful for any amount that I do get as I know my time of restful sleep is dwindling.

Cravings: I am really liking cold water. I wouldn't say that it is because I am low on iron, but I guess it could be a factor. I have not started chomping ice 24/7 so no worries there.

Clothes: I might not wear a pair of jeans until May... Leggings forever!

Random: We started putting up the wood planks on Cambree's wall. I love the way it is looking. We should finish up this week and then I have to finish painting and figuring out which color I want to paint her changing table. I am on the lookout for a skinny tall dresser and I really want to paint that a cool color, but I am having the worst time picking colors. Everything of this little girls is going to be grey and white if I have picked it out or bought it.
