How many weeks:  26 weeks

How am I feeling: Hot mostly.  Also, happy.

Doctor’s Appointment: Today, meeting with OB.  I see the MFM on May 13th (28 wks).  We also have our 3D u/s set for next Friday, May 6th (27 wks) and if Noah is cooperative we will get some awesome pics!

Weight Gain:  9lbs - I am bummed about this, but I suppose it was bound to happen.  :)
Maternity Clothes:  I wear all maternity clothes these days.  Love it!

Baby Preparation: Nursery is coming together nicely.  I am participating a community garage sale on May 7th, and that will be the last of all our mess that needed to leave the room. 

Gender: precious baby boy (confirmed on 5 separate u/s - so anything different would totally catch us off guard LOL)

Name:  Noah Reagan McCleskey.  It means Peaceful Little King.  Pretty sweet!

Sleep:  Sleep has never been a problem with any of my pregnancies.  I think it's because of the Prometrium.  :0)  Although Noah likes to wake me up with some kicks/punches around 3 or 4 in the a.m. - I think he just needs some mommy time.  I love it. :0)

Best moment this week:  Feeling him kicking away pretty much all the time. 

Movement: A lot.  I love it.  I love being woken up by it early in the morning.  It's so sweet.

Food cravings: sweet fruits, mango, watermelon, strawberries

What I miss: Nothing.  Absolutely nothing.

What I am looking forward to: I am looking forward to reaching 28 weeks, and entering the 3rd trimester.  I can hardly believe this is me typing this out....

Milestones:  Today!  I'm at 26 weeks.  I am so humbled by each passing day.  

We didn't get an u/s today, so that was a bummer, but here is a pic of what Noah should be looking like:
