#2 (Harper) at 26 Weeks

How far along: 26 Weeks
Size of baby: According to "What to Expect When You're Expecting," Harper is about the size of a cucumber. 
Total Weight Gain/Loss: +5 pounds.  Yes, Dr. Anna told me she only wanted me to gain 2 pounds but I was pretty proud that I only gained 5.  She was pretty happy too.
Maternity Clothes: My pants are always maternity or belly band but not all my shirts are maternity...yet.
Gender: Our doc says she never goes 100% so she's 95% sure we're still having a girl!  Harper Lee Plunkett!  No, she is not named after the author.
Movement: Harper is pretty active. She is not as active as Eli was but she's starting to move more and more.
Sleep: Once I fall asleep it is GOOD sleep! It is getting harder and harder to fall asleep though.  I just have so many things racing through my mind.
What I miss: Going a whole night without having to get up to go to the bathroom.
Cravings: A couple of weeks ago pound cake was on my mind but that craving got satisfied.
Symptoms:  I have that annoying restless leg junk.  I don't really remember it with Eli but I know it's pretty annoying.
Best moment this week:  Only gaining 5 pounds instead of 15!
What's happening next:  Next week I have my diabetes screening--Yuck!
