26 weeks

whoa, way late!  we were out of town for a nice long weekend, hence, the hold up.  i'm also gonna change up the survey a little bit.  at this point, it's pretty obvious that i'm in maternity clothes, and since i haven't had any food/smell aversions the entire time, i'm just gonna drop that question. 

baby is the size of: a head of lettuce
how far along are you: 26
what's happening with baby: baby can now hear mine and matt's voices while we chat.  he's inhaling and exhaling small amounts of amniotic fluid, which is essential for the development of his lungs.  he's continuing to develop baby fat.  his testicles are beginning to descend.
due date: jan 10
sleep: going ok.  not great.
best moment this week: we had our last ultrasound on monday.  she didn't do a measurement, but said all of his organs are developing perfectly!
what are you looking forward to: trip to the outer banks. 
what do you miss:  sleep. 
symptoms: big belly.  back pain.  and definitely feeling him up in my ribs.
movement: lots of movement.  there's no set time, but i definitely feel him moving around multiple times a day.  matt has gotten to feel him move around more and more, too. 
gender: baby boy!! 
belly button: in. there are lips around the edge, though, so i am anticipating that it will pop pretty soon.
rings: on, and for most of this week it was ok.
