Bump watch: 26 weeks

bump watch, 26 weeks, pregnancy

Another week, another bump watch. 26 weeks already!

I am definitely feeling bigger now. Getting comfortable is harder, and it takes a lot of shuffling around and rearranging of pillows in bed before I can get to sleep. Even sitting on the sofa to watch TV is harder as I can’t sit in one position for long before I get cramp or an aching back. 

Movements are regular and strong now, and the baby will respond to touch – if you gently poke the bump you usually get a kick back, which the kids love. Baby also responds to loud noises – there was a lot of jumping around when the rugby was on at the weekend and Kevin was cheering for England!

Food wise, I have got my appetite back a bit more now, possibly because the bump and movements are all still fairly low down. I am definitely not loving chocolate or cake as much as I normally would though – this baby likes fruit, juices and salad. The one thing I can’t get enough of is Calippo ice lollies – I could eat them all day long. 

There aren’t any more appointments or check ups due for a couple more weeks. Although I am classed as high risk I am still under general midwife antenatal care, so for now at least I am having the usual appointments, with the next one being at 28 weeks. We have a 4D bonding scan booked for 27 weeks though, so we will get a glimpse of the baby again very soon! 

I will be back with another update next week. If you missed my 25 week post you can read it here.

    Aww such a lovely bump photo! I am 31 weeks pregnant today so can relate to a lot of what you are saying! I bet the 4D scan will be fab 🙂
