25 weeks

How far along: 25 weeks.

Size of baby: 13.6 inches long, 1 lb, 9 oz. About the size of a rutabaga (cause EVERYONE knows how big that is, right?!)

Gender: Future princess, but not future pageant queen (unless she wants, but no "Toddlers and Tiaras" for us ;)).

Total weight gain: + 13.5 lbs

Maternity clothes: When we venture out, when I'm at home I'm in sweat pants and jammies.

Symptoms: I had some contractions Monday after my ultrasound, but they went away after laying down, drinking some water and taking a bath. HUNGRY!! Insomnia, I was up from 4am-6am one morning for no particular reason-guess my body is getting ready for middle of the night feedings!

Sleep: About 8 hours a night, with about 3 trips to the potty.

Food cravings: No particular cravings this week...eating everything in sight.

Movement: All the time!!! Her kicks and jabs are getting so strong now that I can feel her when I'm up walking around.
Best moment this week: A WONDERFUL ultrasound on Monday!! My uterus is working perfectly and there are no internal signs that would lead them to believe I'm headed toward pre-eclampsia. (and at my dr. appointment Friday, my blood pressure was 115/50) The umbilical cord flow was excellent and baby girl is growing right on track. She already weighs 1lb, 9oz (61%). We have will have one more follow up ultrasound at 34 weeks just to make sure that everything is still going well (and to make sure she is head down because right now she is breech). I had them check the gender for the third time, and she is still a GIRL.

What I miss: Alcohol. I went to my Mom's group wine night this week...just not quite as much fun without the wine. ;)

What I'm looking forward to: JT is taking me on a date Sunday after the Super Bowl! :) We're just going out to dinner, but I'm excited!

You aren't going to be one of those Toddlers and Tiaras moms? I am shocked! : ) She'll be way cuter than all of those girls anyway! Ha! So glad you are feeling good and enjoying your little sweetie. I can't wait to see pics! You look great!
