26-28 Weeks Pregnancy Update & Life Lately

Weeks 26-28 flew by!  I am finally in my third trimester.  Honestly there hasn't been significant changes from last couple weeks.  The only thing I noticed was that I run out of breath faster.  Probably because it is super hot and humid some days.  And I sometimes have heart burn.  I noticed drinking a glass of warm milk has helped me.  I checked a few days ago, and I currently weigh 132.  My bump is quite noticeable bigger though.  My shirts/dresses are filling up nicely.  One thing I am not loving is my memory.  I literally have to write everything down because I am quite forgetful.  Did anyone else experience this during pregnancy?

I had my glucose tolerance test and thank goodness it is over with.  My hubs came with me and was a major support.  I love how he always will make room in his busy schedule for me if I need him. I have my prenatal appointment tomorrow so it will be interesting to see my results.

Enjoying my days with my little one and friends.  Anytime I have a free moment, I love spending it with family.  I love our evening walks.  Masha always manages to notice every rabbit and chases them down.  She is definitely a funny one!

Here are a few photos from the last couple weeks:

 Yummy coffee from Black Gold Coffee Roasters.  Check it out if you are in my area.  Amazing breakfast & lunch choices too.

If you haven't tried the Aveda Damage Control Brilliant Spray yet, you are missing out.  I am obsessed with this product!! Smells divine!  Right after I wash my hair I spray it on, and blow dry.  No knots or tangles and helps hair last longer between washes.  Highly recommend!!

Typical breakfast.  I usually eat breakfast about an hour after I have my morning smoothie.   Love having eggs with fruit and a cup of Kefir.  And everyone knows my obsession with lemon water.   I have a pitcher of this all day everyday.  

Pig tails are so cute on her!

She is a lil lion I tell you!

    XO, Michi

    1. Thank you!! Yes she is super excited! Always sings songs to the baby!


  9. You look great!! Could you pretty please do a tutorial of how you did the bun in the picture where you're wearing the wildfox tee? My hair is the same lenght as yours and I can never do (or have it stay in place) a bun to save my life despite watching all those sock buns and other tutorials on youtube - would greatly appreciate it!!

    1. Thank you sweetie! It is quite simple. I use two bands. Make sure to use the type that doesn't pull the hair. First do a high pony tail. Then wrap it around nicely at the base and tie it with the other band. Tuck in any lose ends and use a couple bobby pins to secure. A little bit of hair spray can help hold it too :) I don't do the sock bun because I have enough hair to do on my own. Hope that helps!
