26 weeks and ultrasound!

I will be 26 weeks this thursday, hellooo almost 3rd trimester!...We had an ultrasound today and hubs and I got to see baby girl,  we just love getting to see her so much! We are going every 4 weeks since 20 weeks just because of a cord positioning thingy, it's a totally normal variance where it inserted like a bit on the outer side of the placenta and not right in the middle...so we just have to get a monthly ultrasound because like 2% of the time it can cause a little growth restriction, but not with baby girl..At this point she's measuring right at 26 weeks all limbs and body parts and she weighed in at 1 pound 13 ounces, so almost 2 pounds! It's crazy to think we're getting so close now! She is a mover and a shaker already, she was kicking the whole time...she is still transverse, which is apparently why I feel so much pressure down low ughhh...but Doc says he thinks she move into head position hopefully soon which relieves the pressure a good bit, so we'll see! But a great appointment today! And for the weekly post:

How Far Along:
26 weeks!

Total weight gain/loss: Up 1 lb from 24 weeks so up to 21 pounds!
