I know I missed a week, but I was having a pretty rough week. I've been struggling with confidence lately and have been hating what I see in the mirror, which really sucks since I loved being pregnant last time. This time around I'm getting little anxieties here and there about recovery. I just really don't want to experience the lack of self confidence I had after having Calvin. It took me 18 months until I started to feel good in my skin again, and I'm horrified it's going to happen again. So needless to say I was not in the mood to take pictures of myself. However I am feeling a little better, and am taking it a day at a time, and trying to remember the beauty and creation that is taking place in my body. Now that I've spilt a little bit of my heart and soul, let's get to the bumpdate.
How far along are you? 26 weeks.

Due date: June 22nd

Sleep: Every week just keeps getting better and better. I'm going to be going off of Melatonin soon to see if my body can sleep better on it's own.


Food cravings: Jam on toast, and gum (which is not food, but when I am not eating, I constantly have a piece in my mouth!)

Favourite moments: (1) Alex and I are 95% sure we found a name, which is super exciting. We don't want to say we definitely know just because we like meeting them first before deciding, but we both really love the name we found. It was kind of a funny story how we came across it actually. I was thinking about it on a Saturday but didn't mention it to Alex, but the next day we said to me out of the blue: "What do you think of ... for a name?". I was shocked and immediately told him I loved it and was thinking about it the day before. We've had a list for a while but we didn't love anything on our list until now! (2) Calvin has been talking about the baby in mommy's tummy lately and it melts my heart. He's still not fully aware what is going on, but he is at least acknowledging that there is a baby.

Happy or moody? Apart from the body anxiety I mentioned above, I am really happy

Looking forward to: I get to have another ultrasound next week, which I always love. At my last appointment, my midwife said I was measuring closer to 29 weeks instead of 25. It's common that sometimes the measuring is off, but she just wants to be safe. Fingers crossed we are still at 26 weeks, because there is still so much I want to get done before this baby comes!

Other: Nesting has officially started and I love it! I completely reorganized our main level closet and am keen to get our master closet and storage room done in the next few days.
