I am 26 weeks + Pregnant and I feel so tired! I haven’t given you a bargain baby update for quite some time (6 weeks to be exact). The reason is I can’t even explain how tired I am this pregnancy. I don’t remember being this far along and feeling so tired. Many times this week I fell asleep at about 8:30pm. This is unlike me because I am usually a night owl. I do wake up many times in the evenings.
I am finally feeling Bargain Baby move every day. I am wondering if the hiccups are starting too. Right now it is hard to tell the difference on the little thumps because if they are hiccups they aren’t lasting as long as they did with my oldest.
Along with being pregnant, I am dealing with the emotional stress of growing large. I feel huge and not so pretty. I know I know…I am growing a baby. That doesn’t help with feeling down and the emotions.
I am loving the shopping! I got newborn onesies and some cute little tutu outfits ready to go they are tiny! I also had to tear open a pack of newborn diapers just to look how little they are! It will have been over 4 years since I had my last child.
After my last doctor’s appointment my doctor had informed me that I had grown 6 lbs in a month. That is a little more than I should be gaining in my opinion. I don’t want to gain as much as I did with my daughter because I am determined to get back to normal much quicker. I wasn’t able to get back to a weight I was happy with until I was finished nursing with her and that was way too long!
My belly was also measuring 2 weeks early! I had a 17 and a 20 week ultrasound where she was measuring 5 days early and now 2 weeks early! I know I know…every pregnant woman things their baby will come early. So this one could still arrive a week late. 🙂 You know the patience starts to go away quickly toward the end.
I have started to have packages arrive for the baby! Wipes, Onesies, Outfits. They are mostly from Amazon and Totsy but as I am finding the deals I am buying a little at a time to fill up her closet! Our next big project is to get her nursery ready. 🙂 I am going to be so excited to see that put together!
I am blessed to be pregnant and I count my blessings each day! Thank you to those who enjoy the Bargain Baby updates! 🙂

I’m sure the exhaustion is just from being pregnant and you’re prob getting bloodwork done all the time but wanted to say it just incase- make sure to let your dr know about how tired you are. I have hypothyroidism and never said anything to anyone about how tired I was bc i’m a SAHM and felt like a lazy bum. I would fall asleep sitting up just watching tv like an hour after waking up. It ended up being bc of the thyroid problem I didn’t know about. The day I started my meds and got my thyroid levels right, I felt 100% better and had my energy back. It might be worth checking out if you think it could be an issue with it. I knowsometimes when you get pregnant, they up your dose so I wonder if it could cause your normal levels to fall too low??
