26w Belly Shot

Here is the latest picture. I definitely think I have grown since my last picture. I've been trying to wear the same shirt for easier comparison. I might not be able to wear this shirt for much longer, though, because my girls are starting to fall out of it... I think I mentioned my problem with my growing "melons" (as Kathy V. calls them)? Well, let's just say it's still a problem.

Other than that, things are looking good. I think the baby has moved up a bit because I haven't had as much pressure lately. That has been nice! I did have some pain around my belly button for a few days (which I think might have been from diastasis) but I have been more careful about how I move and what positions I sit in and the pain has subsided. I have also been doing some breathing exercizes that I read about on a midwifery site. They have actually helped a lot!

I know there are more tidbits from life to update on, but I am really tired. I'm going to take advantage of the long weekend and go take a nap... =)

How exciting! I really like that shirt, by the way.

Hope you're able to rest up this weekend!

Oh, you are so cute!!! You are pregnant! :)

Glad to hear that the pain and pressure are subsiding. I was getting worried about how you were feeling. Believe me, I completely understand about not being able to wear certain shirts due to the large melons. There are a couple that I have that fit the belly but my melons feel squeezed in. (or feel like they are popping out as you mentioned.

Glad the exercises are helping too.

You look great!

I could never understand why maternity clothes were so low cut?? Hello? Your boobs do grow when pregnant.
(Cute shirt, though!)

You look so great!!

Thanks for the comment- I thought about double peak, but the mucus is so different than my normal peak-type mucus pattern... plus I haven't really had stress. I guess I'll know for sure tomorrow with the b/w.
