25 Weeks

How far along: 25 weeks... getting awfully close to that 3rd trimester mark!

How big is baby?:
The size of an eggplant. She's about 9 inches long and weighs about 1.7 pounds.

Total weight gain: I gained about 1 1/2 pounds this week! Whoa! I think that was just making up for the week before when I didn't gain any weight, but it's still kinda crazy. That brings my total weight gain to about 15 pounds. If I keep up gaining about 1 pound a week for the rest of this (which is what I'm supposed to do), I will end up gaining about 30 pounds total. Right smack in the middle of the 25-35 pounds my doctor recommended I gain.

Maternity clothes: It was cold again this week, so I've been wearing my maternity and yoga pants... I'm hoping for warmer weather soon so I can bring back my skirts and dresses. So much comfier. I realized as I was getting ready for the gym this morning that my tank tops aren't going to be long enough much longer

Best moment of the week: Hearing baby girl's heartbeat on Wednesday, being told that she and I are both measuring the perfect size for where we're at. Also finding out that I don't have gestational diabeteas which felt good!

Food cravings: Cheerios still! I've also been craving chocolate ice cream and milk shakes this week. So yummy! I don't think of it as a craving, but I've been drinking crazy amounts of milk the last few weeks. I mean like we went through a gallon in about 3 days. I don't even think about it, but I guess I'm liking milk a lot.

Food aversions: None this week.

Symptoms: . Sleep still sucks because I can't get comfortable and if I find a comfortable position it doesn't stay comfortable long. I had my first round of heartburn last night... that wasn't fun! Don't know if it was something I ate, or if that's just a new symptom that's starting... but I'm hoping it stays away for awhile. My back hurts a lot these days and I am super tired pretty much all the time.

Movement: Some days she's a dancer, other days she doesn't seem to move much. I don't notice her much during the day, but I think that's because I'm so busy and moving around so much. She scared me the other night because at like 9 I realized that I hadn't noticed her at all which was unusual. Even when I was sitting on the couch she wasn't moving. I chugged some OJ though and she started moving. It made me a little nervous, but I was glad she responded so quickly.

Gender: Still a baby girl. I asked the doctor Wednesday how accurate the techs are on identifying gender, cause I was still a little dubious, but she said in the 10+ years she's been there she hasn't seen them make a mistake once. Still wish I would get another ultrasound to confirm it, but my OB said I would only have another ultrasound if there are concerns or complications. 

What I'm looking forward to: Getting to the 3rd trimester mark in a couple of weeks. It feels like such a huge milestone to me :)

What I miss: Sleep! I just want to sleep through the night... I guess those days are behind me for the next... what? like 8 years probably? Blah.

Next appointment: April 26th is my next appointment... after that I will be going in every other week. Holy crappo... THAT makes it feel like we're getting to the end there. I remember when she said started at 28 weeks I would be going that often and I thought how far along I would be at that point... and now we're almost there... crazy!
