26 weeks

Gestational diabetes results are back and NO gestational diabetes this time! Woo! I would say sugar here I come, but eating too much of it still makes me feel awful, so sugar in moderation here I come? (Really doesn’t have the same ring to it.)

I’ve gained about 31 lbs so far this pregnancy, and I’m guessing that won’t slow down going in to the holidays. Oh well!

I’m having my first experience with sciatica and it’s SUPER FUN. (Yeah, not fun at all.) It seems better if I spend a lot of time sitting on the couch and having 3 young children really lends itself to doing that, so that’s working out pretty well. I’m very much hoping this is temporary.

Right now I’m using a pregnancy body pillow that belongs to my sister. It’s this one from Bed Bath and Beyond.

I’m not gonna lie, I thought it was excessive when she bought it (and I sleep with a body pillow always!) but YOU GUYS. This pillow is AWESOME. I’m tempted to kick Brian out of bed so I can use it for the rest of pregnancy. (I’m currently at my sisters’ and he’s at home.) Although, I do wonder if I’d feel claustrophobic in it at the end.

Anyway, here I am at 26 weeks. You can’t really tell from the picture, but I’m in yoga pants which makes this picture a more accurate representation than most.

  1. My friend has sciatica and was miserable for about 4 weeks. Then someone suggested the chiropractor and she was better after two adjustments for the rest of her pregnancy. Just a suggestion. šŸ™‚ Anything to feel better right?

  2. I had sciatica with all my kids and it did not go away as pregnancy progressed.
    And OMG, I could not live without that pillow. Got it about 16 weeks with my 1st pregnancy. It’s a must have!!! A life saver, best money ever spent!!!
