Yep, I definitely would feel less movement when I was busy and moving around. I wondered if it was because the baby was actually moving less, or if I just noticed it less. Probably a little bit of both. And they get to a point where they develop sleep/awake patterns too.

There is such a huge difference between 26 and 28 weeks. I think it's one of the most changing periods of the pregnancy. You should be high-fiving Julia after each day that passes. I also focused on only the immediate goal ahead... it kept me sane. And I had good BP throughout, which was a daily encouragement, because you can't have pre-e with good blood pressure. So it was like, yay, we don't have that battle to deal with today. Then before we knew it, we were full term.

Keep us posted!

It's extra hard to be in those weeks when things awry last time. I also set mini goals with my pregnancy after our daughter passed away- it made the whole pregnancy seem more manageable. And for what it's worth I found that all my kiddos were quieter on days I was moving around more.

I'm keeping crossables crossed that week 26 is a peaceful one for you and that soon you are celebrating being the most pregnant ever!

Thanks ladies for all your support.
I am head on into week 26 (one that I had been dreading remembering Annabelle). I am feeling pretty good though. BP has been great, no swelling, been resting and eating healthy. Baby girl has been a bit quiet this weekend, moved some, not a ton...hope that's ok. I have been moving a bit more than usual as well this weekend - it's different when the family is at home, can't just watch lifetime all day!
This week brings
Monday and Thursday at the MFM for 30 minutes NST monitoring and then sono's for cord dopplers - she did great last week, Doc didn't see any reason she wouldn't this fingers crossed!
Wednesday - blood doctor to check on lovenox levels, liver levels etc.

Hoping these next to weeks fly by to the 28 week goal! Then, I'll set another goal - it's been easier for me to set these milestones throughout the pregnancy, gives me something to look forward to!
Hope you all are well, thank you for the prayers and well wishes! Julia and I need them and appreciate them. :)
