Today I am 26 weeks pregnant. I can't believe I am approaching my third trimester already! I'm on the down hill towards my due date and I can't wait!
Yesterday were my doctor appointments. Everything went really well and Chiquita is growing quite nicely. Her head is in the 93%!! Lucky me ;) Poor girl got my huge head, maybe she'll be a mini me. Overall, she is in the 68%. She has the cutest little profile and already weighs 2 lbs. 7 oz. we also had the fetal echocardiogram and her heart is perfect! Josh and I were very anxious for the echo and were able to sleep well knowing that her heart is normal. The fetus' heart is so interesting and changes 24-48 hours after they are born. I won't go into all the details that the doctor went over with us, but the human body is incredible!
I am getting more uncomfortable at night. Leg pains are getting more intense and I wake up several times a night. But it's ok, I feel great still and know that this will all be worth it.
I only gained five pounds since my last appointment, which was a month ago. I feel so good about that since they say the average is to gain two pounds a week. AND I was on a cruise and eating a ton. So yeah, I am feeling pretty good about that!
My Utah shower is this weekend and I can't wait. Tahnee and Jordan have put so much time and effort, I can't wait to see the finish product!
