14 Weeks and Counting.

Today marks week 26. Only 14 more to go!  I went to my doctor today. All is well. Starting from today I will be going in every other week until 35 weeks and then we go up to once a week.

I've been feeling great other than today. I'm very, very dizzy. Ran into a wall this morning and have almost fallen down twice. The doctor said to go home and go to bed, but I'm at work. I had to stay home a couple of days last week due to a minor bout of a head cold. I sit for work and can put my feet up so I think I'll be okay. If it starts to get worse, I'll go home. But for now I'm just breathing slowly and not standing up suddenly.

I have lost all ability to sleep comfortably as of last week. I toss and turn most of the night and never get in a comfortable position. The only way I'm comfortable is flat on my back and I know I'm not supposed to sleep like that so, I will lay on my back to get relief and then roll over to my side. Peanut also makes it hard to sleep with her moving about. She is a serious night owl these days. I was awake until 2:00 AM this morning trying to fall asleep. She doesn't just move at night though, she moves all the time! I read somewhere to track your baby's movements and that you should feel them move 10 times in an hour. I counted last night and she moved 10 times in 10 minutes. No joke. I taped her shenanigans a few nights ago. Here she is in all of her glory!

You can see how much she moves in just 40 seconds, so imagine 10 minutes. Craziness! As precious as it is, we are getting to the point where some of her acrobatics actually hurt. I assume that will only get worse in the following weeks.

Well, until next time, here's a bump update!

26 Weeks. 


  1. Oh how I remember both boys moving during those pregnancies. I loved it, but there were times when it actually hurt! It won't be long now!!!

  2. Time is flying by. Nonni is excited. :-)
