26 weeks - Third Tri!

I have officially begun the third trimester! I cannot believe how fast the time has flown by. Only 14ish weeks to go! I am very much looking forward to meeting this little one! It has been an easy pregnancy, but these past 3 weeks have been more of a challenge. Growing a baby can really tire one out!

The whole family came to my appointment this week. The girls were really excited to hear the heartbeat. Julianna kept asking if we were going to take the baby out. :)

My insides are being smushed all around (sounds pleasant, doesn't it?...) And I have to be careful with what I eat, like in the first tri. Starches don't do me any favors, so I've been eating high protein and naturally gluten free foods. ie: fruits and veggies, and peanut butter....  :)

Oh, and we did settle on a name that we both really like! But we are not planning to share that little tidbit of info just yet - even with the kids. It's fun to have a secret.. :)


  1. Not for those who want to know that tidbit of information! Actually we never found out what we were having. It does keep the suspense up. Lilyana is doing wonderful, she is gaining by leaps and bounds now that Mommas milk is in. Good ole Jersey milk at that :) You know what that is all about. Can't wait to see pics of your new little one, whatever it will be.

  2. It is a girl (far as we know!) just saving the name for a surprise! :) Glad Lilyana is doing well!
