Progress pics and pregnancy update...Weeks 25 & 26

In the last week, I have started getting more tired during the day. As I draw closer to the end of my second trimester and the start of my 3rd trimester, I guess that is bound to happen.

Our little girl seems to really enjoy moving whenever I am ready to settle in for the night. I also found FIVE new stretch marks on my stomach. GASP!!! This is in spite of using Palmers Cocoa Butter religiously every morning and evening. I have read that stretch marks are passed on based on your genes and since I already have them in other places, I was bound to get them. Oh my body is more uniform :-).

I am LOVING the fact that my innie is still an innie. PRAYING it stays that way.

So far, I have been lucky and no one has tried to rub my stomach. Praying that continues because I don't really feel comfortable with it. I used to always say if someone rubs my stomach, I'll do the same to them or grab their boobs in response. But now that I am starting to show, I am not sure if I'll have the nerve to do so.

Now, on to progress pictures.

Week 25

Week 26

Thoughts/Random Questions:
When you were pregnant, did you ever have random strangers (or co-workers) walk up to you and rub your stomach? If so, how did you react?
Does anyone know the origins of the pregnant woman stomach rub? I have often wondered if people do it because they think it'll bring them good-luck. If so, what's the benefit to the mom? I really don't get it so if you know, please enlighten me :-).


  1. i've done the belly rub but only to people i actually know. i would never do it to a stranger. and i always ask permission first.

    not sure why i do it but just the fact that i know that there is a little baby in there it gets me excited and all i want to do is rub the belly, lol.

    1. Oh I never thought of it like that. I guess the excitement does make people want to share.

  2. I had people rubbing my belly before. I didn't mind. I thought I would but didn't. My innie turned outy when I hit the 3rd trimester, but then it always went back in right after I had the babies. Your looking good. Just imagine you are going to get way bigger than that. When is your due date.

    1. Oh and here I was thinking it would stay an innie. I am due 11/7. Start my 3rd trimester in 2 weeks.

      I have actually gotten bigger. I was SHOCKED when I put on a dress I wore last week. It was fine on me last week but today, the front was lifting up. Yikes! Baby seems to be growing at a faster pace.
