Pregnancy Highlights!

Pregnancy Highlights!

How Far Along: 26 weeks! (meausring 27 weeks)

Size of baby: Harper weighs 2.4 pounds!
What's Harper doing in there:

The network of nerves in your baby's ears is better developed and more sensitive than before. She may now be able to hear both your voice and your partner's as you chat with each other. She's inhaling and exhaling small amounts of amniotic fluid, which is essential for the development of his lungs. These so-called breathing movements are also good practice for when she's born and takes that first gulp of air. And she's continuing to put on baby fat. He now weighs about a pound and two-thirds and measures 14 inches (an English hothouse cucumber) from head to heel- Baby Center
Total Weight Gain/Loss: + 15. I'm not complaining! So far it's just in my belly! If you knew me when I was pregnant with Ryan then you can testify that this pregnancy has not been like his. But ya know at this point, I don't care if I gain 100 pounds as long as Harper is healthy!

Maternity Clothes: Yep... wearing maternity clothes!
Gender: Momma's lil girl- Harper Elise

Movement: She is a mover! She likes to practice her ballet movements and the karate she will use later on Ryan.  

What I miss: As we enter this Father's Day weekend, I am missing my Papa! 

Cravings: Spicy and sushi!

Symptoms: Well, no symptoms but I am on bed rest! Boo! Mama Drama. Harper wants to make her debut a little earlier than she should.

Best Moment this week: Spending time with my boys!
