Baby Bump Update: 25 Weeks


*How far along?: 25 weeks 5 days when this photo was taken (at the end of a VERY long day, so excuse the tired crazy haired look)

*Total weight gain: My next "official" weigh in will be Jan. 9th....and I am scared to step on the scale next time!!! According to my scale, I've gained about 16 pounds total. Looking at the picture above, I look like I am ready for delivery. I don't remember sticking out this far last time...I'm all belly. Maybe that's what people mean when they say they can tell I am carrying a boy.

*How big is baby?: About 14 inches long and over a pound and a half in weight!

*Sleep?:This week I am sleeping better than I did last week...still a little restless leg, but overall, I am sleeping okay.

*Best moment this week?: The baby seems to have turned head down now, so I feel like I can breathe a little better....not sure if that's in my mind or really the case, but a girl can dream, right?!?

*Movement?: This little uterus hijacker already knows how to do jumping jacks...he's even talented enough to do them right on my bladder!!!

*Food cravings?: Still none...having to eat small portions at meal time to avoid feeling sick. I guess that's why I'm not on the road to gaining 77 pounds like I did with my first pregnancy....I feel full faster this time around, which is helping keep my weight gain normal. Thank goodness!

*Labor signs?: No, thank Goodness....but I do believe I have started having some Braxton Hicks over the last few days.

*Belly button in or out?: It's out, and has been out....BUT, I do have a hernia, so that makes it stick out sooner. Will have to look into getting it fixed once the baby is here.

*What I miss: Sleeping on my stomach and running and exercising in general. Running 5 miles used to feel I am out of breath just mopping my floors. Ready to get my endurance and exercise routine back!!

*What I’m looking forward to:  I ordered the fabric for the crib bedding..looking forward to getting started on it soon. Also made a few bibs this past week! He'll be so stylish at meal times! ;-)
