26 weeks

This is an exciting week since I'm officially in my 3rd trimester!  The finish line is near, quite near actually according to my doctor.  I had a visit on Tuesday and he is already stressing me out about the pre-term labor.  He will be a happy camper if I can make it to 36 weeks, which means that in 10 weeks our little bundle of joy might make his appearance.  Is it me, or does that just seem crazy soon?

Also, my iron is low - which is nothing new.  So I just have to keep taking supplements and hope that it makes a difference.  Darn you anemia!  I also gained another kilo (2 pounds) this month so now I'm up 3kgs this pregnancy (6 pounds) which is ironic because I feel like a cow.  I feel much bigger than I did with Nathan, but I guess I'm about the same.

This baby also loves to have dance parties, especially at night.  I guess he inherited that from me.  If this is any indication of what he will be like "on the outside", we are going to be in trouble.  I have a feeling that he will be our "wild child".  Only time will tell.

Shirt:  Hubby's undershirt refashioned by moi; maxi dress:  C&A; shoes:  Tod's

On Nathan-  Shirt & belt - Carter's (gift from grandma); Jeans & Shoes;  Baby Zara, Lovie (aka dou dou): Carter's

I thought I really loved this shirt, turns out it doesn't look so great on.  Oh well, you live you learn.  And Nathan does not want to miss an opportunity to take a bump pic either!

Shirt:  Motherhood Maternity (hand me down from my lovely friend Pilar); Pants: Motherhood Maternity; Shoes:  Nine West

And just because it's always fun to compare...here I am pregnant with Nathan at 26 weeks
Can you believe this picture of me at an airport Starbucks is the best pic I've got at 26 weeks?  Sad but true.

So crazy that you're 26 weeks and will have your baby in about 10 weeks, and I'll be 30 weeks on Friday and will have our baby in about 10 weeks. Eeek! It IS soon!

Iron supplements...my doctor wanted me to take them but they mess. my. stomach. UP. Bad. And I'm not talking constipation, I'm talking make-me-want-to-throw-up-and-lay-in-the-bed-all-day messed up. Needless to say I quit taking them!

You're so teeny...how do you do that?!

I just got over severe anemia where I had to have infusions for six weeks--nothing to laugh out! I'm still taking supplements and just now normal!

You're so beautiful! I hope I look as good as you when we get pregnant!

Still looking fantastic! I wished I'd taken bump pictures of myself at different stages of my pregnancy. I just wasn't that diligent.

Stacey said...

I can't believe you have only gained 6lbs!! By this time in my pregnancy I had gained like 12 I think!!LOL How many total did you gain with Nathan?? Glad to hear you are doing so well!!

Sara said...

Adrienne said...

You do look really beautiful! Aren't we lucky - so much to be thankful for! Take care of YOU!!!

Twisted Mummy said...

You look totally adorable! Younger kids, I think, tend to be wilder. They have an older sibling to copy from. My youngest did things my eldest didn't LOL.

Natalie said...

You're such a cute pregnant lady. I'm glad he's liking those dance parties. I'm guessing he'll just be a happy little guy that loves to dance. :)

Jessica said...

So cute!

I hope the dance parties late at night stop once he is born.

Missy said...

I was low in iron with my second too.
You look unbelievable for 26 weeks! Wow.

I also love night time dance parties! Clearly your baby and I have a lot in common.
