26 weeks and 2 days update!

Hello Lovely Readers!
Here is the semi-weekly update along with school countdowns!  Please pray for me as I transition jobs!

Pregnancy update
How far along? 26 weeks 2 day!

Total weight gain: 31 pounds so far....and I didn't weigh this week.  So sue me!

Maternity clothes?: Still loving the grey's anatomy scrubs....thinking I'll order 1 more set of maternity scrubs to rotate and then buy ones that fit after Avery arrives!

Sleep: Not so great this week....started my 9-9 shifts so I wake up at 4 or 5 and go pee then try to sleep some more.

Cravings: Right now, nothing.  I am getting over a bout of food poisioning and haven't recovered an appetite!

Best moment this week: Getting the nursery together and Steve feeling Avery move!

Movement: Almost every day I feel her, Steve has felt her once.

Gender: GIRL!

Labor Signs: none yet, thank God!

Belly Button in or out? In.

What I miss: Having energy to do things.  I feel like I have chronic fatigue syndrome and have to budget my energy for work/school/homework/wife duties/church and I feel like I am constantly behind.

Weekly Wisdom: Try to look at the bright side and don't be so hard on yourself.  It is nice to be around positive people at work and I've made a couple huge mistakes (both rectified quickly) and then beat myself up for the remainder of the shift.

Milestones: Steve feeling Avery move. 

Favorite Moments: Arranging the furniture in Avery's room, getting the room clean and making it a dog free zone, unwrapping her little onesies and putting them in the dresser, making her bed.  It looks like a room now!
School update:  1 more test, 2 more small papers, 1 more big paper, 1 poster, and starting my graduate portfolio.  I hope to finish one small paper and the poster today!



  1. Beautiful! I love the nursery!

  2. Just realized that we'll both be done with grad school in December. HALLELUJAH! :)

    I have a friend that still works in the ER at UAMS, Sarah Bemis? I know she used to work there. Went to high school with her.

  3. I haven't met Sarah yet, but I'll keep a look out!
