26 Weeks

How Far Along?  I'm 26 weeks and 6 days in this picture

Feeling/Symptoms?  This week I've been feeling so big.  I feel like I can't get around anymore and it isn't any fun.  I'll be honest, the reality of gaining weight and being uncomfortable all of the time is catching up with me.  I LOVE feeling Savannah move and kick, but I can't really say at this point that I'm loving being pregnant. 

Doctor's Appointment:  My last Dr.'s appointment was a big one in my eyes.  I have been researching and reading about birth and labor and wanted to talk to my doctor about all of my options.  After talking with her, I have decided that I want to have as natural of a childbirth as possible.  If you are pregnant or are just curious, I suggest you check out the documentary "The Business of Being Born" (it's on Netfix).  It totally changed my thoughts and feeling son childbirth.  I have always been TERRIBLE at dealing with pain (seriously, I'm the baby when it comes to pain), and just always assumed that I would have an epidural because I couldn't handle labor and delivery   This documentary plus all the additional reading I've done has reminded me that my body was designed to do this very thing, and that I have to prepare myself both physically and mentally for labor.  I'm "training" so to speak right now, and I pray that I am able to have a safe and intervention free natural child birth. 

Food Cravings/Aversions: I have had some weird cravings this week.  I've not craved much of anything in the past month or so, but this week I was really wanting Chicken Fried Rice Chicken Helper (you know, the Hamburger Helper boxes but you use chicken instead), and Pop Tarts.  I brought home Pop Tarts today and Jeremy thought it was Christmas :)  I've never bought Pop Tarts for us before, so this was a real treat for him too :). 


  1. You look great! I'm really excited for you planning a natural birth. I've had two, and they were both AWESOME! (Hardest things I have EVER done, but completely worth it.) I'll be praying for you as you prepare! <3
