25 weeks!

What’s going on this week:

Head to heels, your baby now measures about 13 1/2 inches. Her weight — a pound and a half — isn’t much more than an average rutabaga, but she’s beginning to exchange her long, lean look for some baby fat. As she does, her wrinkled skin will begin to smooth out and she’ll start to look more and more like a newborn. She’s also growing more hair — and if you could see it, you’d now be able to discern its color and texture.


My Update:

Due Date: November 4, 2011 – 105 days to go!

Weight Gain: +11 lbs (from pre-preg weight).

Symptoms:  Nothing new this week.  Magnesium supplement has helped the leg cramps, so I’m back to sleeping great!

Cravings/Aversions: Still nothing…I don’t think I’m going to develop any dramatic aversions or anything this pregnancy.

Sleep:  Still good!

I am loving:  Fun visiting with sisters, and nieces!  Lisa, Ada, Ali and Grace are all here and yesterday we shopped and shopped.  Today we’re slated for some pool time!  Josh arrives tonight so the fun continues!

I miss:  Winter?  Less than 100 degree days?

Movement:  The movement continues…it’s starting to be more and more noticeable where the baby is in my belly.  He seems to like hanging out on my right side, so it’s staying a little lopsided depending on where he is at the moment.  It’s neat to be able to push on the belly and actually feel something in there!

Nursery progress:  No real change, except that now there is a bassinet and cradle and in-bed sleeper in there (courtesy of Ali and Meredith) and lots more baby clothes (courtesy of Lisa and Mom.)  The cradle is one that my Dad made back when Meredith was born, and we are passing it through the family as babies are born.  It’s getting some good use.

Exercise: Nothing.  It was a really long busy week at work and I missed both Pilates and Yoga.  Only a couple more weeks till I’m down to part time and working from home, so these last weeks in the office are going go stay really hectic while I’m doing training and trying to clear up any old loose ends.  (This is my exact same update from last week and it still applies, so I’m leaving it here.)

Looking forward to: Swimming today and the wedding on Saturday.  And then my next midwife appointment on Tuesday.  (I think this is the last ‘monthly’ appointment and after this one I start going every 2 weeks.  EEEk!

Belly Shot: (I can really notice some growth in the last couple of weeks.  getting bigger!)
