Pregnancy: 25 Weeks today!
Weight Gain: 16 pounds total. And it's 100 degrees today so i have stopped the walking to work thing.. need to get to the gym or something! Don't want to get too crazy with the weight gain....
Sleep: Not waking up as much to go to the bathroom, but i still have very VIVID dreams. Nothing really about the baby yet, just random people's faces that i might have seen on facebook that day or something
Gender: Not finding out the sex.
Names: To be honest. I have a girl's name. I'm not sharing it though, I don't know for sure if Andrew agrees with it 100%, and we aren't finding out the sex, so no need to share. (and i am pretty sure we are having a boy) But for boy names.. i do have a list. Andrew doesn't like ANY of them. We really need to sit down and get serious- but we have not. At this point our baby is nameless and will be maybe until a few days after birth. I am hoping at delivery, he'll give in and i'll get the names i want. That's how it works right?
Feeling/ Symptoms: It's hot out there ya'll. Standing for long periods of time are really taking a toll on my feet and ankles. Or maybe it's the 16 pounds i gained.....hmmm. I have been going to sleep with my legs up at the end of a long, hot day of standing.
Health: Good. Not sure if i ever mentioned that i get bloody noses. It's for sure a pregnancy thing, and i think it's weird. It's been going on for a few months. But as longs as it means i am still preggers, i'll take it!
Movement: Still lots of movement in the belly.. Now every time i feel it, i look down to try to SEE it. it's pretty awesome
Maternity Clothes: Prob. not getting anything else new. Skirts and dresses have been doing the trick so far. Although i did get new (bigger) undies the other day. Let's never speak of it again.
Stretch Marks: Still no, thank goodness. Belly is very smooth. I keep it lubed up
Best Moment Last Week: Registering for my shower! (feels like a year ago). We registered at Buy Buy Baby and Target. Andrew's sister Aimee is a god send. I had no idea how much STUFF you need. - Well i know you don't NEED most of it, but it's still a lot of stuff. I couldn't believe that so much STUFF was going to come into my cute little apartment. Hope it fits! But registering was great overall. I am so grateful Andrew's mom and sister are throwing me a shower. They are the best! And my momma's coming! YAY!
Nursery: Still a computer room......Andrew was told (by his sister and mother) that he has the month of July to clear out that room. haha!
What I Miss: a nice cold beer. yep. and my belly button.
Looking forward to: Having 3 days off next week!! God bless America. I am going to lay in the AC watching my FREE HBO that i have for a few more days. SIGH. Side note.. Andrew and watched Season One and Two of Game of Thrones in less than a month. I got HBO free for a month. I'm gonna miss it and i might have to dish out the extra 10 bucks a month for the rest of the summer. hello... TRUE BLOOD. got off track there, I'm looking forward to watching TV and maybe going to the movies. I want to see Moonrise Kingdom!!! (see trailer below)
What the professionals are saying:
How your baby's growing:
Head to heels, your baby now measures about 13 1/2 inches. Her weight — a pound and a half — , 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.
Baby is the size of what fruit/ Vegetable? Rutabaga
AND- Moonrise Kingdom Trailer, cause it's cute:
