26 weeks


So this is what it looks like to be 26 weeks pregnant. However, from looking at this picture, and then looking down at my belly today - at almost 27 weeks (6 days after this photo) - I feel like there is a HUGE (pun intended) difference. I look roughly like an elephant right now. The last week I have really started to waddle, feel more pregnant and uncomfortable and just feel like I'm growing by the moment.

I think that this little guy has really grown too - he has started kicking me in places he hadn't explored before - getting pretty close to my ribs and stretching out so he's managing to kick (and hit) both sides of my tummy at the same time. He's getting tall it feels like! He has also decided that my bladder can double as a trampoline....I am not quite a fan of this new game.

Oh - and I haven't had any contractions today. YAY! That has been a relief for sure.

I am so glad that the contractions have stopped for now. Drink lots of water while you are in Provo this weekend! You're looking good. I hope you have a wonderful time at Women's Conference. Wish I could be there with you all. Give my love to Tammy and everyone.

Love, Mom

J- you look great. I love belly shots! I hope you'll keep posting them as you progress. And yes, I'll send thoughts of labor and delivery as the 25th of July approaches. I agree it has a nice ring...
