26 weeks

26 weeks

The Belly: Changing up the pic a bit this week because I do not intend on getting "fixed up" today.

Hi Point: After this week, it's kind of a stretch here. I'd have to say my high point was that I am now officially more than half way done with my 17p shots. 11 down, 10 to go!

Lo Point: Well...I had a really bad night on Wednesday night. I just couldn't get comfortable and my back felt like it was cramping. I ended up leaving work early the next day and my midwife said that it was inflammation and spasms. She wrote me a prescription and put me out of work for Friday.

Then we had "the talk". I knew it was coming, but in my mind I really thought I had about another month before we needed to talk about when I'd go out. I was sure that with the job I was doing now plus the weekly shots, I'd be able to work longer.

Reality is, I just can't do it. (Enter guilt.) We decided that I'll try for 3 more weeks and that will put me at 30 weeks (because I'm really 27 weeks tomorrow).  So...there's that.

Siblings: No biggies here. The Bug is trying our patience on a regular basis, but I guess we can just say we're in training for #3. Sometimes she is like having 2 children. :) Colson is being his regular sweet self.

Cravings: Not a whole lot. Chocolate milk, maybe?

Lbs: +26 (I won't even go into what the doctor's scale said. I'll just say I was wearing my boots and I didn't get to take them off. Boots are heavy y'all!)

Looking Forward To: **This was last week's hope -->Nothing big this week...just wanting to make it through with minimal back pain and possibly a bit more sleep.**Needless to say, I don't think it happened. I think I'll stick to the same hope for this week.
