26 weeks pregnant

I had a lovely catch up with two of my favourite people last night & feel a lot more relaxed for it. There's something so nice about just chatting with the girls.

As well as it being 26 weeks into the pregnancy it is also my beautiful mormor's birthday today so I want to say another big HAPPY  BIRTHDAY to her & I wish we could give you a proper cuddle but hope it wont be too long until we can again.

How far along? 26 weeks.
Measurement at waist: 79cm (SAME)
Measurement at largest point: 90cm (+3!)
Mood? I'm quite happy today, this week has been a roller coaster though.
Symptoms: Bloating & everything that comes with that...
Compulsions: Protective instincts.
Physical: My nails are still brittle so I've taken to using nail oil every day & I think that's helping. Hair is starting to have a little more shine & has stopped moulting. Weirdly, despite having more bodily hair (yay hormones) my hair growth is really slow so that's a plus.
Fashion: I didn't buy anything for myself last week but I did buy bits for Evelyn. The first half I've already blogged about & the second half will be up on here Monday.
Cravings: None really. I enjoyed some Baklava yesterday though & I'm always happy to have a nice bowl of chili rice.
Sleep? Since last week Evelyn has decided to test us even more by waking at 4:50 every morning. We're in the process of working out how to stop that but there's been no progress yet. I'm sure the clock change will help a bit but I've also ordered a lumie light which will eventually (after some conditioning) hopefully act as an aid for informing her when it's acceptable to leave her bedroom. Nothing will be instant though, so for the time being we intend to take it in turns to treat her wakes like night wakes (which incidentally she's also started having again).
Movement or Labour signs? Baby is moving a lot. Times are pretty consistent now too. It's around : 7am, 10am, 4pm & 9:30pm that I notice things. The latter is when I notice it the most & you can really see the movement too. It's lovely really.
Looking forward to: Evelyn & I are seeing my mum today & we're meeting with an NCT friend tomorrow for a play date. Both will be lovely.
How's Evelyn? She's sweet, she's also practising her tantrums which is a test but we're doing okay.
