26 Weeks – 3rd Trimester, 6 Months.

26 wks

...obviously the THIRD trimester is messing with my mind...since I labeled this post "2nd Trimester" and is the beginning of #3!

Total Weight Gained: 11.8 Pounds.

Cravings: Milky Way Midnight MINIS. I bought a variety bag of mini candy bars at Sam’s and immediately became completely attached to the few Milky Way Midnights that were in the bag. I couldn’t find a bag of JUST Milky Way Midnights anywhere and was sorely afraid that I was going to be spending all of my money on huge variety packs of mini candy bars JUST to get the Midnights. But that was until I discovered that Mars’ website has a retail locator feature. AND that the only places you can get bags of JUST Milky Way Midnights are Publix and Target. Score!!! Now I’m in Midnight heaven.

Also still loving the Buffalo Sauce. YUM.

Aversions: The refrigerator that DESPERATELY needs cleaning out. I spend approximately 10% of my day re-fitting things into the fridge because there’s no room amongst everything that needs throwing out. But I’m determined that the fridge is like the cat litter – TOTALLY dangerous for the pregnant woman to clean out. I keep waiting for the Refrigerator Fairy to pay a visit – soon I’m going to have to resort to putting some moldy food under my pillow.

Random Stranger Encounters: On my way into Publix the other day to buy none other than Milky Way Midnight Minis, there were these two ladies getting out of a car across the aisle from me, talking loudly. Then they saw me, stopped talking about whatever they were talking about, and started talking loudly about their friend who was pregnant and was QUITE larger than she should be at that point. They continued to talk about pregnancy weight gain until we walked into the store together.

I must’ve looked deaf.

Rachel, I don't know what those ladies were talking about, because you look so tiny to me!

I think cleaning out the fridge is dangerous to an expectant mother's health and also to anyone with a child under five. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

You look awesome! I think this is a nice stage because there can be no mistake that your perfectly rounded belly is anything other than a baby bump!

P.S. Not even 12 pounds?? Way to go!!!

I agree with Mama Hen, you are "bitty" for being PG! Haven't tried the Midnight Mini's. I better not, it could be dangerous!

Karen said...

I saw your midnight minis at Publix last night, and I have had them before, pretty good for dark chocolate.
Luckily for me they had the big Twix bars 50% off, so I bought a few and have already devoured them :)

You look so cute and tiny! And I don't change the litter box OR the fridge...ever...pregnant or not!
