How far along: 25 weeks! 14 left! (actually 25 weeks 2 days)
Size of baby: Our baby is the size of an eggplant! It measures about 13.6-14.8" and weights about 1.5-2.5 pounds.
Weight Gain: 10.5 pounds.I went to the doctor on Tuesday and had gained a total of 10 pounds and my doctor said, "Your weight gain is perfect." I said, "Excuse me, could you repeat that!" I am just excited not to be getting a lecture from the doctor about my weight! I am almost to my 12 week starting weight with Lucy! (keep in mind I gained 15 pounds in the first trimester with Lucy)
Maternity Clothes: I wear what fits. I still haven't bought any maternity leggings and I need some!
Gender: We don't know. Make sure to vote on my sidebar poll.
Movement: This baby is still a night owl. Tuesday after drinking the sugary drink for my glucose test the baby was very active! I'm glad I keep sugar and caffeine away from it!
Food Cravings/Aversions: I really want a banana split with hot fudge drizzled on top but I don't want to get my sweet tooth started because I have no will power and I won't be able to turn it off!
What I miss: Sleeping on my stomach.
Sleep: My hips still hurt but I started sleeping with a pillow between my legs and it has helped.
Symptoms: Reflux. I have serious pain right under my sternum. I am also having chest pain on the right side. My doctor said something about the ribs growing and muscle stretching. It hurts when I breathe.
Best Moment of the Week: My Tuesday Appointment! I love hearing our baby's heartbeat. Heartrate was 153.
What I look forward to: Starting to put together the nursery. We hope to knock a lot of it out this weekend.
