25 Weeks {a pregnancy update}.

25weekspregnant
I feel like I look like I'm holding a basketball under my shirt in this picture. haha!

How Far Along: 25 weeks, 4 days
Size of baby: 9.2 inches, 2 pounds, about the size of an eggplant
Total Weight Gain/Loss: (as of 2/8/13) 18 pounds
 Maternity Clothes: All maternity clothes, when I wear something other than sweats and a t-shirt.
Gender: BOY! Tyler Paul.
Movement: Lots o' movement. Last night it felt like he was doing somersaults. And then this morning my stomach looked like it was shaped different, so maybe he flipped or something???
Sleep: It's been ok. I've woken myself up a few times trying to roll over onto my belly in my sleep. Such a bummer when that happens.
Symptoms: Tired and achy. Nothing too uncommon for this phase of pregnancy.
What I miss: Sleeping on my tummy.
Cravings: Mexican food is my consistent craving. I am still craving cookie dough, but after my last 8 pound weight gain I have held off from eating it every night.
Food Aversions: nada.
Best Moment this week: I loved having our friends, Brian and Christy, up for a visit last weekend.
What I am looking forward to: My next appointment in a few weeks will be my last monthly appointment. Then I'll be going every other week! I can't believe we're on a countdown to meeting this little guy finally!
