26 weeks

This was a great week. We bought a car (a black Elantra Touring). And then we drove around the city and got a million things done. Doing things is easier with a car, you guys. I love it to pieces. I have tentative plans to post a photo of the new addition to our family soon. Until then, this jazzy photo will have to suffice.

25 weeks

I've been feeling more awkward lately, and you can see why. I painted my toe nails today, and I'm pretty sure that's the last time that's going to happen for several months. I guess that means I'll have to go for a pedicure or two at Silk Road. Such is life.

Overall, I'm still feeling really good. I've been worried about getting a cold, but I think I'm in the clear (for now). Michael got sick, so we've been taking it easy this weekend. Thankfully, I'm still sleeping really well (I slept for 11 hours last night!), so that helps. So does a virgin hot toddy.

I had my latest midwife appointment this morning and everything is looking good. I can't get enough of listening to the baby's heart beat! I want my own machine so I can listen all day. I do feel the odd flutter of activity, which is reassuring, but it's very subtle because of the position of the placenta. Too much information?

Michael took this photo on Sunday, and I've just been too dang lazy to post it until now. The belly may not seem much bigger, but trust me, it is. I can't wear my old pants anymore, so I bought some maternity pants last week, and I love them so much. Other than the new pants, I've been wearing jersey dresses, and they've been serving me just fine, but I'm unsure how long I'll be able to keep up it up with the tights and leggings. Will they keep me warm in the winter? Will I have trouble putting them on and taking them off when my belly gets bigger? Will Michael need to help me with the ungraceful task? I'll keep you posted.
