26 Weeks!

She's breathing in her amniotic fluid and her eyes are fully formed and will start opening in a few weeks (they've been sealed shut while her retinas formed).

•How far along?•
26 weeks

•Total weight gain/loss•
No clue, but I think I'm probably getting closer and closer to the prepregnancy mark, which is fine considering how flippin' hungry I've been lately.

•Maternity clothes?•
I wore a prepregnancy shirt over a maternity tank top a couple days ago. I don't think I'll be able to get away with that again.

I want more. I was going to take a nap at lunch today, but when I was ravenous by 10:30, I knew I was in trouble. Good thing it was 2/$1 Taco Thursday at the deli by the office. Bless them. Those ladies make hundreds of tacos each Thursday, yet they know my name and order by heart.

•Best moment this week•
Yesterday was a good day. Not only did it mark 99 days till my due date (We're in double digits here people!), but Chris and I finished the closet. I need to take pictures of it, but I was just so damn impressed, all I could do was stand back and stare. Cutest little clothes ever. We've hung up the NB and 0-3 clothes and the 3-6 and so on are waiting in standby mode in their own organized tubs (Which Chris hopefully returned to the garage). I'll post pictures this weekend.

She's been quiet this afternoon, but I'm thinking she's just in a taco coma. I wish I was too. Her kicks are visible from the outside and she responds when the dogs bark and when I listen to tracks #4, #6 and #11 of the Glee soundtrack - volume 1. But that's just because I belt them out every day on the drive home.

•Food cravings•
We went to the Dollar store the other night to look that these LL Bean knock off totes they advertised - awful. And I bought 2 boxes of what looked like otter pop-type popsicles but were really Italian Ices. O>M>G. Shut the front door. I want one right now.
I also still want a big glass of milk. And maybe a couple oreos.

Judging by the number of pink onesies, I hope she's still a girl.

•Labor Signs•
No. Ew. stop asking me that.

•Belly Button in or out?•
Shallower by the day.

•What I miss•
Being able to slip between cars in the parking lot. Seriously. Wide load. This is aggravated by the fact that the men at work that park in the (assigned) spots on either side of me hug the lines and I'm really trying not to hit their car, but my door needs to open a little more than it used to.

•What I am looking forward to•
Cleaning out the rest of the storage from the nursery and getting to work on the walls. It's gonna be a giant PITA, but it's gonna look awesome when we're done. Hopefully.

•Weekly Wisdom•
Sometimes the only way to get Chris to finish a project is to cry about it.
In other news, the baby chicks now have a very nice OUTDOOR coop. :)

Less than 100 days till my due date and like, 10 days till the 3rd trimester (depending on who you ask). Oh, and the birthday countdown is on. :)

We also registered for our childbirth class through the hospital. It starts June 15th and goes through July 27th. The only later option was a class that ended on September 2nd. I didn't think that would really work for us...
