100 days......

to go!!!
Where has the time gone...wow!
In about 3 mos I'm going to be a mother of three!
This week I'm 26 weeks (182 days) preggo.
Here's what's going on with Stella this week:
Your baby has put on quite a bit of weight by
pregnancy week 26 and is now a whopping
1.7 pounds (almost). Your baby's total length
is about 14 inches during pregnancy 26 weeks!
Your baby is now starting to add a little fat to her
bones, though she won't start accumulating
too much fat until the last few weeks of pregnancy.
Your uterus should now be about 2 and a half
inches above your belly button. Your uterus will
continue growing at a rate of about 1 centimeter each
week as you continue your pregnancy week by week.
You have probably put on some weight at this point
in time, up to 23 pounds for some women. Your weight
may fluctuate from day to day due to water retention
so try not to weight yourself every day if you can avoid it,
as this could prove discouraging during your pregnancy.
The entire family is getting so excited to meet Miss Stella. This
past week, her big sister Hunter was the first to feel her kick!!!
3 times as a matter of fact :) It cracks me up....
Stella can be "sleeping"and she hears her big sisters and
starts kicking like crazy! I just love it!Alli Jo loves to hug and
lay on my belly (it is quite the pillow right now). She talks to her
baby sister and kisses her every day. She tells her about her day
and funny stories. She "says" she feels her kick too LOL
When daddy puts his hand on mommy's belly,
Stella stops kicking. I can pretty much rely on dad to stop those
hard kicks haha! Maybe it's b/c she's waiting to hear who it is :)
Too quiet to be her sisters! Or maybe daddy's touch puts
her to sleep (let's hope so). So we can't wait till January!!
Baby Stella we love you so much!!
