Salad, Anyone?

That may be all I'll be eating these last 3 months, particularly because Juice Drop is growing like a weed! I forget how big my belly's getting until I look into a mirror or look down and no longer see my toes. Looking at my belly from my point of view does not give this massive beach ball-like-vessel justice. And then I see a picture below and I'm like Holy moly! No wonder I've gained 19 pounds! How can I really last another 14 weeks and still get bigger?! Fingers crossed Juice Drop isn't the average of her Daddy and me at our birth weight--Travis was 8+ lbs and I was 8.11 lbs 2 WEEKS EARLY! or this Mama will be wishing an epidural was part of her birth plan!

How far along? 26 weeks 
Total weight gain: 19 lbs--whoa, whoa, whoa! pretty soon I'll weigh as much as Travis!! 
Maternity clothes? Pretty much the only clothes I can wear anymore. I went through all my clothes, tried them on, and put away anything that I can't fit in to anymore as to not upset me by seeing them hanging in my closet lol
Stretch marks? No :)
Sleep: Pretty good
Best moment this week: Hearing her heartbeat never fails to make my week better than the last :) Plus finding out we'll get another ultrasound in 2 weeks makes me really happy!  
Miss Anything? Being comfortable
Movement: Several times throughout the day and night! I can now predict the times when she'll move: early morning while I'm still in bed, when I'm eating breakfast, after I eat lunch, middle afternoon, after dinner, then she gets crazy right before I fall asleep :)
Food cravings: Cereal
Anything making you queasy or sick: No
Gender: GIRL!!!
Labor Signs: Apparently I've started getting Braxton Hicks (basically like little contractions) where my stomach gets really hard. I always thought that was her head or butt lol but my Doc said it's BH and it's like my uterus is giving her a big hug--which I thought was cute :)
Symptoms: rib pain after eating and when sitting too long, heartburn
Belly Button in or out? Outie 
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or Moody most of the time: Very Happy! 
Looking forward to: Travis' first Father's Day on Sunday!! 

I'll leave you with a little diddy that'll make all Mommy's shed a tear:
