Baby Yancey - 26 Week Bumpdate!

Happy {almost} Halloween y'all!!!

Pumpkin shirt tutorial here {super easy!}

How far along:  26 weeks!

Baby Size:  Baby boy is the size of a head of lettuce... holy moly, I can't believe that is inside of me!?

Maternity Clothes:  Oh yes!  The more "regular" clothes I try on, the less that fit!  Thankfully Matt sees my struggle each morning & didn't bat an eye when I told him "I need more clothes...".  He's a good man, guess I'll keep him. ;)

Stretch Marks/Swelling:  Nothing new so far!

Sleep:  Descent... I've been sleeping with a pillow between my legs & that seems to help my back a lot.  I've started waking up at 3 or 4 am & feel wide awake - hoping that stops soon!

Exercise:  We've been slacking on our evening walks this week but, I do feel great after so I'm hoping to start back again this next week!

Food Cravings or Aversions:  Good 'ol sweet tooth still hanging around!

Gender:  Boy!  Jack Montgomery!

Movement:  Oh yes!  It's been so funny feeling him more & more & watching my stomach.  He's certainly a wiggle worm & I love it!

Symptoms:  A growing bump.... I'm finding I can't bend over as easy as I once could & that makes things interesting.  I immediately hate that I've dropped anything, ever.

Labor Signs:  NO!  Hope these stay away for at least 11 more weeks!

Belly button in or out:  In

Wedding rings on or off:  Engagement ring on

Mood:  Happy!

Nursery:  Coming along... Matt started sanding his dresser & we picked out the dresser color on Saturday!  We also decided on the layout of how everything will go in his room & I think we've decided on a glider!  #progress

What I miss:  Being able to bend over!  LOL!  My stomach is definitely getting bigger & it's becoming more & more noticeable with different things I try to do - bending over, sitting on the floor & getting up.

Best moment this week:  Visiting my best friend & meeting her little boy!  I could not be more excited for her & her new little family but, it also makes me that much more excited & anxious to meet our baby boy!

What I'm looking forward to:  Going to Canton trade days this weekend!  I already know what I'm going after - things for Jack's room, obviously!

Other Notables:
+ We are officially under the 100 day mark! 92 days from today is my official due date!
+ Friday is my glucose test.  I've heard conflicting opinions on how tolerable the drink is or isn't.  I suppose I'll share mine next week.
+  We have our first pediatrician interview this evening & I'm super excited!  (Strange? Yes but, it makes things that much more real!)
+  Last week I purchased Baby 411 & The Happiest Baby on the Block books.  I started reading Baby 411 & I'm really enjoying it so far!  They're open, honest, to the point & somewhat funny.


  1. I love the shirt! What a sweet picture! And yes, your hubby is a great man - I think my husband would claim I got pregnant (which I am not!) just to buy more clothes! Have a great day!

  2. Under 100 days, egad!!! So exciting! You look fabulous, lady! love the shirt!
