26 Weeks

How far along are you? 26 weeks and I can't believe it's almost the third trimester. It seems to be going so quickly.  I actually really like being pregnant (along with all it's aches and pains and extreme junk food cravings) and feel like I might kind of miss it.
Best moments:  My friend Jamie and I started our Wednesday night prenatal yoga classes together last week.  She is pregnant with twin baby girls (!!) and she found these great classes through a birthing center.  The classes feel a lot different than the normal yoga classes I have been trying to keep up with (I've slowed down a lot and can't do some of the poses, but I still get a lot out of taking regular yoga flow classes while pregnant) and our instructor gives a lot of really helpful tips on stretching and relaxation.  I'm looking forward to our class tomorrow, and it's also a lot of fun to drive out there together and catch up on baby talk.

Also, Brian and I bought our crib at Ikea this weekend.  We had been looking online, but actually decided on a different one when we saw them all in the store.  Most of the furniture in our house is dark brown, so we wanted to get the baby boy's furniture in white.  The nursery is a tiny room, so we are planning on only putting a crib, a changing table, and a rocking/glider chair in there.  Brian has some cool ideas for the nursery walls and I love it when he gets involved with planning.  My parents are coming to Salt Lake in May and also want to help set up the nursery, so we'll try to leave some things unfinished until then.
Craving: Strawberries and Reeses Eggs
Movement:  Baby boy is still super active (I wonder if he will start to run out of space soon??) and it's so fun when everyone gets to feel him kick.  I really never get sick of people touching my belly.  Brian said it was really cool the other night when he could feel some sort of baby body part (an arm or leg?) pressing up against his hand and moving around.
Belly Button:  It's officially long gone!

 Two pictures above taken by my friend Sam Pierson and that's her adorable little boy.  He's the coolest and makes me really excited to have a boy. Check out her website here- her photography is beyond beautiful!

How far along are you?: 25 weeks now, but again I'm late on posting this from last week.
Craving: Jalepenos (Brian and I stopped by Tony Burger for a quick burger and onion rings this week and I was eating a jalapeno slice with every onion ring), Lucky Charms cereal, the egg salad sandwiches at my school cafeteria, and raspberries/blackberries/strawberries, zucchini sauteed with Mrs Dash garlic and herb seasoning
Aversions: Nothing- everything tastes so good right now.
Best Moment: Our friend Heather has a baby boy who will be about a year old when our baby boy is born.  Last weekend, she gave us a ton of baby clothes and Brian and I were so excited.  I've been spending a lot of time sitting on the floor of our (unfinished... well, not even started) nursery sorting through baby clothes.  The tiny little baby sweatpants kill me, and the little baby boy hats are even cuter. I'm knitting our baby a blanket right now, and after it's finished I want to learn how to knit him a hat.
Worst Moment: Swollen feet starting for the first time (except for our Portland road trip when they got really swollen from sitting in the car all day- that was really the first time)
Excited about: Starting prenatal yoga with another pregnant friend next week (yay!!), finally buying our crib soon, the Papa Murphy's s'mores pizza I get to eat after dinner tonight.  Did I mention everything tastes so good right now?
