Pregnancy: 26 Weeks


It's interesting to read that this week my baby's network of nerves in the ears are more developed so there's a good chance it can hear the other half and I chatting away now as well as Logan talking. The baby's also practising it's breathing by inhaling and exhaling small amounts of amniotic fluid which I find quite fascinating. In myself I'm feeling good apart from the odd sore back and bit of pelvic pain here and there. I also can't stop eating!! I'm not even hungry and all I want to do is eat all the rubbish of the day. I've never been a massive fan of chocolate, preferring to munch on crisps, but all I want is chocolate now. This of course isn't healthy and I'm going to end up the size of an elephant if I'm not careful!

The baby's kicks and movements are a lot stronger this week too and I'm getting proper jabs and thuds now. I'm kinda getting a bit hot and bothered as well so really looking forward to the weather cooling down. Last night was very windy and super cool in the bedroom which was so nice. Normally I'd have to turn on the fan but didn't have to bother this time.

Finally went to get my haircut this week after 15 weeks with only a little fringe trim in between. It was desperately needing done. I could feel my face getting fatter so to combat this my lovely hairdresser, Jon, suggested we keep my fringe but thin it out a little instead of going blunt as this would just make my face look wider! Any how it worked and my face looks slimmer even if it really isn't. Thanks Jon.

I haven't managed to get up the loft and have a look at any of the old baby stuff like I'd wanted to this week however the other half and I did manage to pick a lovely wallpaper for the baby's nursery as a feature wall so that's all ordered up. Logan's superhero wallpaper for his room has arrived which is great and we'll be getting the decorators in next Friday to start. Can't wait, just hope Logan copes well with it as he's not a massive fan of change. I'm hoping that because it's superheroes (his favourite) he'll be ok. So all going well Logan's room and the baby's room should be finished by the end of October, yippee!

I've spotted a nice nursery furniture set I quite like although when I say set I mean cot bed and dresser/changing table. I'm hoping to go and actually have a look at it before I place an order, it's nicer seeing everything in the flesh. It gives me a better idea of size as well as the baby's room is a lot smaller than what Logan has.

Apart from that all is well and the usual swimming will take place this weekend along with a haircut for Logan. I have my fingers crossed the swimming with tire him out first and he'll sit still long enough to get a proper haircut. We'll see though.

This all sounds so familiar, though I'm 5 weeks behind you :) Enjoy it all, I hear the second trimester flies by all too fast. Look forward to reading about the nursery soon. x
