How far along? 25 weeks
Baby’s Size: cauliflower
Maternity clothes? I don't even look at my other clothes...except sweatshirts & cardigans.
Best moment this week: Spending time with Joe. I know I know, so hokey...but he has been in the best mood this week and it's infectious.
Miss anything? Not thinking about food. I went to my check-up at the ob this week and I've put on 8 lbs in the last 4 weeks...I'm only supposed to gain 1 per week! I've only gained 15 lbs so far which is totally fine but 8 lbs in one month is too much! Between the weight gain and the fact that I've started swelling when I'm at all active caused the midwife to suggest I start watching my sodium intake and add more protein/less carbs. So...now I'm always thinking about what I should eat...ugh...I thought I was getting a break from all that for a while!
Movement: Yep. Though I'm a little concerned I'm not feeling everything I should be. When the midwife was using the doppler to monitor his heart beat at my appointment he kept running away from her then started kicking the sensor. I couldn't feel any of it and she seemed surprised that I didn't.
Food cravings: Everything I shouldn't eat...
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope.
Gender: It's a boy!
Labor signs: Nope.
Symptoms: In addition to the swelling I talked about before, I've been really clumsy the last few days. I haven't fallen down on anything but I drop pretty much anything I pick up. I actually gave up on wearing a necklace today after I dropped it no less than 4 times trying to put the clasp together.
Belly button in or out? Still WAY in...still annoying me...
Happy or moody most of the time: I'd say 1/2 and 1/2 this week. For the most part I've been good but there was one bad night :-(
Looking forward to: My shower at the end of the month! We went to Ikea on Sunday and got shelving, a rug and a few other decorative odds and ends that really pulled the room together! It definitely still has a ways to go but other than a lamp shade and some pictures there's nothing else for Joe & I to do until after the shower. In fact, every time I suggest picking something up Nicole yells at me not to until next month!
