25 weeks.

Sorry for the belated update!  25 weeks down and 15 to go!

Today's date: December 12, 2010 

How far along: 25 weeks

Total weight gain: 15 lbs - ish... varies by the day, but around 15lbs.  I am not sure that I am going to keep weighing myself at home, because I found that the Dr.'s scale is different (and nicer).  So we'll see. 

Size and growth of the baby: Head to heels, your baby now measures about 13 1/2 inches. His weight — a pound and a half — isn't much more than an average rutabaga, but he's beginning to exchange his long, lean look for some baby fat.


Maternity clothes: EVERYTHING!!

Sleep: Sleeping well for the most part!!  I know that won't last long though... the bigger the belly gets, the harder it is to get comfortable.

Best moment(s) of the week: The nursery is painted, the dresser is built, and hubby is assembling the crib as we speak!  I LOVE seeing this coming all together!! 

Movement: Baby had a growth spurt this week.  When that happens I usually have 1-2 days of aching round ligament pain... followed by 1-2 days of a very quiet sleepy and growing baby... followed by a feeling like my stomach is stretching the most it can possibly stretch (which obviously isn't the case as I'm sure we'll soon see)... followed by a CRAZY active baby.  We are in the crazy active stage and it is just amazing.

Food cravings/aversions:  Nothing much!  I'm really trying to be mindful of how healthy I am eating - otherwise I'm sure I would be indulging in chocolate and sweets like CRAZY.

Morning sickness: Feeling good!!
Symptoms: Tired, expanding belly, horrible dry skin, acid reflux, and getting kicked/punched in the bladder. :-) 
Labor signs:
 WAY too soon.

Belly button in or out:  
 In - but definitely feeling shallower! 

What I miss:  Being able to stand/walk for long periods of time... I am getting more and more achy every day.

What I'm looking forward to:  I work the rest of this week and then am off for 2.5 weeks!!  I have LOTS of sewing to do and can't wait to see the nursery come together even more!

What's happening this week:

Your baby is beginning to exchange his long, lean look for some baby fat. As he does, his wrinkled skin will begin to smooth out and he'll start to look more and more like a newborn. He's also growing more hair — and if you could see it, you'd now be able to discern its color and texture.

{Baby Eggplant... which is interesting, because we actually had eggplant for dinner!}
