Baby H #2 Update: Weeks 25 & 26

   Happy Tuesday y'all! Or 'A' day for Pretty Little Liars fans(I'm probably way too excited about it, but hey it's been 6 years!). It's not raining like it was yesterday, in case you haven't been outside yet. Which made it nice for going to and from my doctor's today. I don't know anyone who enjoys going out in the rain haha. If you're one of those people who enjoys being out in rain, let me know!
    So I had my weekly doctor's appointment today, yay! Seriously, I feel so blessed to have such a kind, genuinely concerned doctor as well as his staff! It makes this whole scary process so much better.
    Today's visit was also for my glucose test. Now with James I actually never got around to doing this test. I think I had it scheduled for the next appointment that I didn't make it to, but honestly I can't remember. Blame it on the pregnancy brain. So this was a whole new experience for me. I asked my girlfriend, who's due any day now, about what to expect and that really helped. Not only was it helpful to know that she fasted, but it also eased my fears about the ordeal test. Most people act like it's the most horrible thing you'll do during pregnancy, but I can now let y'all in on a little secret. It's not nearly as bad as they tell you haha.
   For starters, the drink doesn't taste that bad. I went with the fruit punch flavor(my friend's suggestion!) and it tasted pretty good at first, after a while though I was ready to be done with it. It's actually clear now, which surprised me. Good news for the pregnant ladies with dye allergies! One downside is it's more to drink than I thought. It's about the size of a small water bottle. I did have an upset tummy afterwards, but no nausea. Then about an hour later they tested my blood and I was done! They don't even have to test your blood beforehand. I should find out my results tomorrow, so please say a prayer for me!
Here's Baby H #2 at 25 weeks and a day!

And again! I think his nose will be a cross between Dillon's and my mom's!

   When I went to my doctor's last week (25 weeks) I also saw the specialists. Baby H #2 weighted 1 lb. 10 oz., and according to my pregnancy app he should weight more than 2 lbs. this week and be 14 inches long. His eyes are starting to open around this time, and he can even sense light in there. Which seems crazy to me that he can now tell that. At this point most of his development is all about putting on weight and height. If you need a visual of where he's at you could equate him to....
I don't think I've ever heard of this, but the Parisian bakery theme is my favorite. Probably because I'm always hungry...

So cute!

    I am curious as to how I'm going to expand any more to accommodate Baby H #2. At this rate at 9 months my stomach will be entering a room 5 minutes before I do. People still wanna know if this is just one. Even if they have asked before haha. One lady I know thinks it could be 2 or 3. She's serious.

The bump at 25 weeks and a day last Tuesday!

The bump today at 26 weeks and a day! Man, I wear a lot of dark blue!

   Symptoms are just the same, no decrease and no increase. I go back this Friday for an ultrasound. I had a little concern over his lack of movement during the glucose test, which if you didn't know sugar usually makes babies move a lot. My nurse and doctor did a non-stress test, and everything looked great for a 26 week baby. But my doctor still wanted to see me Friday as a precaution. Oddly enough he started moving quite a bit towards the end of the appointment and after. Go figure! I'll keep y'all posted on the glucose test! Thanks for reading y'all!

Baby H #2 Update: Weeks 4 To 22

Things I'm Using In My 2nd Pregnancy

Baby H #2 Update: Weeks 23 & 24


  1. Hey, Robyn, Michael loves the rain and even likes walking in it -- really.

    1. That's so funny, I never knew that! I guess someone has to like it. Thanks for reading Sharon!

  2. Awe. You look so cute. I remember the glucose test with my first. I had the Orange flavor. Also, not too bad. Hope you passed, and good luck Friday.

    1. Yeah my nurse said she liked the orange flavor. Thanks, I feel pretty good about it. Thanks for reading Shann!

  3. You are a lovely pregnant woman, look so beautiful! Good luck for you and your baby. Take care :)

  4. Seriously, everyone complains about the glucose test but it didnt bother me. I went with lemon lime (tastes like flat 7up) and got to go in late to work, win! You look great, your bump is perfect.

  5. Hope your pregnancy continues to go well! You look like you're glowing! I actually do like going out in the rain if it's like a light sprinkle! Especially if I'm running or walking because it feels refreshing!

  6. The first glucose test for me was horrible. It turned out, I had gestational diabetes. The second one was no problem. So if you had no problem, you're probably fine. Praying your test results are good!

  7. Hello Robyn, I'm finally getting back into blog reading and writing - going back to work in July has really cut into my blogging time. I am so glad to hear and see that you are doing so well.
