What I'm wearing:
Cardigan- Old Navy, non maternity
Tank- Target (one of the best purchases thus far)
Pants- Old Navy
Shoes- Roxy (another awesome purchase since my feet grew 2 sizes) 

How Far Along: 26 weeks and 4 days

Total Weight Gain: Ugh, I'm up 20. 

Sleep: Has been awful. *See worst moment of the week. 

Best Moment of the week:

* Apple picking. 

Worst Moment of the Week: 
* I had some terrible pains in my stomach. I ended up at the doctor and I was diagnosed with a hernia. O-M-G, the pain! It's pretty large considering the doctor could see it with in seconds of me laying back. It has been painful for me and my sleep is terrible. i can't bend down to even take off my pants with out major pain. The doctor ordered to take things easy. It's difficult to give up most responsibilities around the house but I have to be safe for baby and I. It's been tough. I actually cried last night trying to put my pajamas on. On top of that I have a wicked cold. I'm knocked out! 

Miss Anything: 
* I miss being able to get upset without some one assuming it is probably hormones. 
* Being able to shave my legs and paint my toes with out difficulty

Food Cravings: Apple crisp. It's in the oven as I type. 

Anything make you queasy: Nope

Have you started to show? Oh boy I have but everyone still says I'm carrying so small. I think I just look very bloated. 

Gender: Surprise baby!!! 

Symptoms: Swollen ankles/feet, hernia :(

Workouts: I've been doing as little as possible considering how much I'm hurting. 

Mood: The hernia and lack of sleep have taken it's toll on me. Just staying positive! Although I hurt I am fine and baby is doing excellent. 

Looking forward to: Going to an Autumn festival this weekend with my mom and all the prep for my baby shower! 

Maternity Clothes: A good mix of maternity pants and non maternity tops! 

Stretchmarks: Nothing yet. I've been using Mama Bee by Burt's Bees religiously. 

Rings on or off? Both are still on.

Bellybutton in or out? Still in.

This week I: 
*  Will have to take the 2 hour glucose test.

*  Caught a cold :( 

Baby Update: 

* Baby is doing so great. During the sonogram it was fun to watch baby look all over for my voice. 

* Baby really enjoys fist pumping. 

Momma Update:

* Mommy  is trying to stay positive. 

* Mommy  does not like this sore throat and cold that has taken over.
