26 Weeks. Again, from last week.

How far along: 26 Weeks

Size of Baby: a hothouse cucumber. Again. No idea what that is. 

Weight Gain: +18

Symptoms: I hit unwieldy stage this week! I officially accidently knocked a fan off a table. Yikes. 

Clothes: Pretty much all maternity. I ordered some super cute clothes from Old Navy - and I'm a huge fan! 

Cravings/Aversions: Nothing in particular this week actually. It's a nice change. 

Movement: Kicking a little more each day. And Bee now kicks along to songs on the radio XD I can't help but giggle every time it happens. It just amazes me. 

Worries: Scheduling baby classes! I have a friend who's due in APRIL and is already going to classes. WHAT?! We're touring the hospital this weekend, and next weekend we're going to a diapering class at Itsy Bitsy Bums. We rally want to cloth diaper, and this has a class where we can try on dipes with dolls and such. We're hands on people, so it'll be perfect! Now to just find a birth class...

Milestones: Bee can see light and dark, and hear outside sounds. Definitely proven. 

Best moment of the week: Baseball!!! Go Cardinals!!!

Two things (and feel free to tell me to shut up with all this advice!).

First, take a GOOD childbirth class, not one from a hospital. The hospital classes only tell you the procedures and protocols, they don't actually teach you what's happening to your body and what your options are.

Second, we cloth diaper and love it. If you have questions, hit me up! I'm a part of a co-op on facebook that we order cloth diapers from for WICKED cheap! Alva cloth diapers (which most people really love) are $2.50 per solid color diaper and $3.00 per print diaper. The inserts you buy separately and those have ranges from less than a dollar to almost a couple dollars. In fact, all the brands they do in the co-op are about those same prices. It's a MUCH better deal than $8, $10, $12+ a diaper. The group is secret, so you need to friend request Bazinga Host and ask them to add you to the co-op. :-)
