How far along: 25 weeks
How big is your baby: almost 2lbs, about the size of an eggplant
Total weight gain: 18lbs
Maternity clothes: almost everything I wear! The more stretch and give the clothes have, the better!
Stretch marks: not yet & praying they don’t make an appearance anytime soon!
Movement: Feeling him so much more frequently now! I love it!!
Sleep: I need more than I am getting and I am no longer sleeping through the night…guess I had to get used to that sooner or later!
Symptoms: Crazy emotions, mild cramps, forgetfulness, crazy emotions (did I just say that?)
Best moment this week: Seeing him in 3D on the ultrasound! He is looking so much like BL! And although I felt a little bit like I cheated to see him in 3D, I could not get enough!! Also fun, was watching him nod yes when the ultrasound tech said “well you’re a cute little one, aren’t you?”
Food cravings: Not nearly as much as the first trimester; still the occasional red meat craving and sometimes fruit.
Food aversions: chicken…I had tried it once mixed into a dish and it was ok, but chicken alone is awful so I try to stay away!
Labor signs: not yet
Belly button in or out: in, and getting flatter. Not sure if it will ever pop or not?
What I miss: sleeping more, peeing less and running. I really miss running!
What I'm looking forward to: getting the nursery put together, and finally holding my little man!
