How Far Along: 25 weeks
Size of the baby: The size of an eggplant, over a foot long and weighs between 1.5 to 2.2 lbs.
Total Weight Gain: 14 lbs
Maternity Clothes: All maternity pants, still can enjoy wearing some of my dresses, most maternity tops mixed with larger sized shirts from regular stores.
Gender: We're pretty sure it is a girl or a boy...
Movement: A ton, all day long... especially right after I eat dinner and when I lay down in bed at night and in the morning. Last night the baby had the hiccups for the first time (that I could feel), quite a funny feeling.
Sleep: Not much sleep being had lately, between stresses of a new job and my mind racing. Still waking up on my back all of the time and trying to stay on my side as much as I can.
What I miss: Being able to paint my toenails easily, it is quite the challenge these days ... along with shaving my legs (don't worry- no sasquatch here, I get it done, it just isn't easy!)
Symptoms: Still having morning "sickness" - mainly just feeling icky right when I wake up, but it goes away fairly fast. At the end of the day my feet are burning and feel swollen - trying to wear comfy shoes without looking like an old lady!
Cravings: I wouldn't say these are cravings, but foods I really am enjoying: LOVE peanut butter toast, cereals - Life and Lucky Charms, tuna casserole, and pickled okra.
Weekly Wisdom: Hormones are crazy and turn you into a crazy person, you just have to ride them out!
Best Moment of the Week: Getting two "happies" in the mail: one from my Mama, she sent me this cute owl top from Old Navy that she had found (pictured); the other was the baby bedding!
Looking forward to: Mom flying in this next weekend and a baby shower!
