Belly Bump week #26

Before I formed you in the womb I knew you,
before you were born I set you apart...
Jeremiah 1:5

How far along are you?
26 weeks
Best Moment this week?
My weekend day off
Father's Day
Prayer requests?
Healthy baby
Scripture speaking to me this week?
The gospel during a funeral Mass I attended. Jesus said to the woman with hemorrhage: "Daughter, your faith has saved you; go in peace" Luke 8:48
Baby's growth?
Baby D3 is continuing to put on fat. He or she now weighs about 1 2/3 pounds and measures 14 inches from head to heel. {source}
After my GI mishap, I'm back to having constipation. At least I won't be worried about accidents.
Also having some reflux
Weight gain?
+26 lbs
No Zumba this week
I made 3 days with over 10,000 steps
Since I'm on a hospital rotation, I try to take stairs all the time and walk, walk, walk.
Cravings? Food Aversions?
Nothing in particular
What Made Me Cry This Week?
During graduation we remembered a colleague who recently passed away due to metastatic melanoma. She left three young kids.
And during the funeral of a baby boy. Only 33 days old and already called by Jesus to sit with him in heaven. The funeral Mass was so beautiful -- I felt both sadness and joy for baby J and his family.
I love it. I need it.
Maternity Clothes?
Zulily has been my go-to place for maternity outfits. That and old navy maternity.
I'm still able to wear some nonmaternity tights.
Is it a boy or a girl? I don't know.
I love baby D3's kicks. Derrick rubs my belly and talks to him/her and D3 responds with kicks.
What I miss....
My pre-preg body. The usual
What I'm looking forward to....
I've started planning Daniel's party. It will be fun.
About the rest of the family...
-We are busy with swim lessons twice a week.
-Derrick and I went on a much needed date tonight. When we don't have our "we only" time, the busyness of life gets to us and weigh us down.....
