Bump Watch - 26 Weeks


She sure is making herself known! I've started having men at work ask me when I'm due so I'm definitely showing now! I've started calling her Squirmy Wormy because of how much she moves. Chloe just can't sit still for long which I love. I can't wait to meet her! 14 more weeks of pregnancy and then I get to hold my precious baby girl in my arms.
I know this is everybody's favorite part. Weight gain as of today: 15 pounds. Just for kicks, I tried on a pair of my regular jeans this morning and they still fit in the thighs and butt. I even got them buttoned, though that was NOT comfortable! Obviously my weight is all in belly and boobs. I'm not one of those girls that you can tell is pregnant by the back and there has been no sign of a waddle (I'm sure that is coming). I know you all tell me not to worry about my weight, but I really can't help it. I do work out on my Wii Fit every evening and I try to eat healthy, but it just keeps piling on and fast. I can't believe how fast the weight piles on no matter how much I watch what I eat or how much I work out. I actually only work out for about 30 to 45 minutes each evening. I make sure my heart rate doesn't get over 160 and I drink lots of water during. I only do moderate excercise. 15 pounds is still in the normal range and my doctor hasn't said anything about the weight so I'm going to go with it and keep eating healthy and keep working out.

I have 98 days until my due date. I'm a little sad that pregnancy has gone by so fast, but am also very anxious to meet our little girl. I love my belly. I feel so glamorous with it even though I don't want it to grow too fast. Anyway, that's it for now I think.

Have a great day Blogger Buddies!

I think your doing fantastic especially for only having 14 weeks to go. One thing you might do is cut salt from your diet. Like if you buy canned goods buy salt free. Sometimes with just water retention alone can add five pounds. Of that 15 pounds is baby, fluid and placenta.If your exercising and eating right then once the baby is born I bet within the first two weeks you lose 3/4 of the weight. Breastfeeding will help too. Good job Mama!! -kriss

Cute picture!! I swear, you will wake up one day and not recognize your own stomach anymore. It's weird how big the thing gets, seems completely unnatural!
Your weight gain is totally acceptable! Don't worry about it too much.
