26 weeks



and another shot...


Some how week #25 was really busy and I didn't manage to take a photo. Dang. The one noticeable change has been watching her move my belly. As I sit at night, she of course becomes active. For what seems like hours I watch my belly shift from right to left and it just makes me so curious to what she looks like in there. My dreams are filled with holding her and knowing that one day our family will feel like she has always been there. I can't wait.

Also at while at work I am showing more in my larger scrubs which prompts everyone to ask "How much longer?". When I tell them not until the first week of October the only response they can give me is "oh I'm so sorry, you are going to be big in all the hot months!".

thanks people... I know.

As far as touching? The more the merrier. Pat it all you want, make a wish if you'd like... I waited so long to feel this all over again that I am more than happy to have my beautiful belly touched. I'm proud of it(her).

Now if only this pregnancy would slow down, I'm enjoying it too much for now.

I'm having lots of strangers ask me "how much longer" and to my reply...they cringe.

People say the DUMBEST DUMBEST things. I keep hearing, Ha, wow, you're huge in the hottest part of summer, huh? Yeah, I NOTICED, THANKS.
You look great! I miss you!

You look fantastic! You know what I would do to help preserve this feeling? Do a belly cast. I regret not doing one for my first because i thought it was "silly", but I did for my second and third. They are on the shelf in my closet, so I see them every time I walk in there.

You know I've ever only touched two pregnant bellies in my life. And one, I don't remember. (my mom's)

And the stupid comments? I sometimes can't help but to give the "don't be dumb" look.

You look just fabulous, by the way!! :o)

That looks somewhat familiar! ; ) I feel like I could have written this post... the touching, the movement, it's all good.

You look great! Happy gestating!

I felt the same way about my pregnancy. I never wanted it to end. Of course I wanted to hold my baby, but I loved being pregnant so much I just wish it would have slowed down just a little! :)
She/you look fantastic!
I'm glad you're enjoying it..

Look at that supercute belly! I just love vicariously going through pregnancy with my bloggy friends. It is pretty unbelievable the things people say, I swear sometimes you just want to say, "Please think before you speak." Honestly. Take care of yourself and that little princess.

You look amazing. And being super preggers during the hot months just gives you license to demand a non-stop ice cream supply.

Pregnancy does seem to be going by so fast. I can't believe we're only a month apart and both having girls! it will be fun to raise them together and read about them on the blogging world.
