Bump-date: Week 26

We are so close to being done with the second trimester….I can’t even believe it!

26 weeks

This past week has been a lot of fun around these parts. I’ve been meeting new Army wives, taking classes, working on the baby’s room, baking, and crafting! It’s no wonder my exercise goal was not hit this week, there just wasn’t enough hours in the days!


Looks like things are slowing down a bit over here in this department, which is just fine by me! I love a good sweatfest, but doing the things I normally love to do are getting harder and harder these days. Also I’m not going to worry about my low-key workout week last week as I know I’ve been super duper busy. All I can do is try harder this week!

  1. 15 minute walk
  2. 45 mins walking on the treadmill (2 miles)

Baby Development:

Thanks for all your kind words about the baby measuring big last week. I’m not worried about it all, maybe it will just mean I get to meet the lil guy a little sooner?

I finally heard back from Doc and I PASSED the glucose test! Wooohoo!

Nursery Sneak Peek:

I told you I was busy this week!

I am so appreciative to my in-laws for coming down to help paint and build the baby’s crib this past weekend. It was so fun to be involved in these projects, and I’m so happy with how everything turned out.

The picture above is just a sneak peek of the room, as I’ve added more decor to the walls and am still trying to put some finishing touches on the room before I do the full blown nursery tour.

I also mentioned that I’ve been crafting & DIY-ing my little heart out — thanks to pinterest I’ve been a crafting queen this past week. It’s so much more gratifying to make something yourself and very soon I will be able to share all the little projects I’ve been working on, as they are all part of the nursery reveal.

How I’m feeling:

I’ve had a few days where I’m exhausted, then find myself not being able to sleep at all, but other than that I’m feeling really good. I still have a lot of pep in my waddling step, and I’m just looking forward to the excitement of the third trimester!

What I’m looking forward to:

I’m starting to think about maternity photos! I met a fellow army wife who has offered to take my photos to help build up her portfolio. I’m really excited about this opportunity, and now I have to go shopping for an outfit! We will do our shoot in the coming weeks and I’m really looking forward to it.

Wow, just wow! The baby has been a lot more active these past few weeks, which is so much fun. And since he is getting bigger, it’s easier for me to feel him moving around.

Now that the nursery is at least half way finished I can breath a little easier. I also find myself randomly wandering in his room and just staring at the walls with a huge smile on my face. This is really happening people! 🙂

I’m in a really good place right now with my life and the pregnancy. I’m feeling more confident about being a mom, and am look just really looking forward to meeting the lil guy.

  1. So glad you’re feeling great! Definitely enjoy this stage and get as much done now as you can. I’m at 35 weeks and just putting on my pants is a feat (don’t even get me started about trying to get shoes and socks on!); the belly will start getting in the way before you know it! Can’t wait to see your DIY projects!

  2. The nursery looks great! (I really like the stripes.) I’m curious to see it all finished! And I’m digging your polka-dot top; I want one! (A non-maternity version, that is.)

    You should totally do the maternity photos. Being a model for a day sound fun, plus it will be nice to have the pictures!*

  3. Very happy to hear you’re still feeling great!! You’re looking fantastic. Love watching your bump grow!! 🙂

    The nursery is looking great too! I can’t wait to get some paint up on that walls in ours, but that means a LOT of cleaning needs to happen first. 😉

    Have fun with the maternity shoot!

  4. I just love the nursery! It looks great and I’m looking forward to the big reveal! 🙂

    You continue to look fabulous! Glad that you’re continuing to feel good, too. 🙂

    So many of my friends who have had children get maternity photos and they always look so lovely. I think you will be so happy you did it. Can’t wait to see how the shoot goes!
