25 Week Bump Date

How Far Along: 25 Weeks + 2 days
(You can check out my 25 week post from when I was pregnant with Jackson here.)

Size of Baby: (According to 25 weeks: Head to heels, your baby now measures about 13 1/2 inches. Her weight — 1 1/2 pounds — isn't much more than an average rutabaga, but she's beginning to exchange her long, lean look for some baby fat.

Total Weight Gain/Loss: I had a dr. appt. on Monday and so far I'm up 19 pounds. She is measuring 1 week ahead as she has been for a majority of this pregnancy.

Maternity Clothes: Yes, all maternity clothes.

Gender: Its a GIRL!!! Still nameless!!

Movement: Yes, she's moving around quite a bit now, and I love it.

Food Cravings: Still no real food cravings.

What I miss: Nothing really at the moment, other than just being able to do normal things without feeling tired or out of breath.

Sleep: Having to get up at least once a night to use the restroom and just can't seem to get comfortable sometimes.

Symptoms: A growing belly, and some sciatic nerve pain that seems to be getting worse, especially after I've cleaned the house.

Best Moment this week: Getting to hear my sweet girl's heartbeat at my Dr. Appt. on Monday. I'm also excited because my Dad has gotten a lot done on our new bathroom downstairs in the last 2 weeks. He's hoping to have it done, or almost done, by the end of the week. It will be so nice to have a second bathroom in our house and once it's done, we can move on to working on the nursery!! Yay!

What I am looking forward to: Our trip to Phoenix next week, deciding on a definite name for baby girl and getting her nursery ready. I'm also looking forward to my next Dr. appt. where we'll get to schedule my c-section and have a date to look forward to meeting our sweet Baby Girl!
