Oh wow … it’s been nine weeks since I’ve updated, and that’s a long time in the life of a developing baby! The picture is from two weeks ago, but just imagine a little more roundness added to the belly.
How far along? 25 weeks, 2 days
Total Weight Gain: +11. Not too bad, since I’m mentally adding the 12 pounds I still had left from Seth. (Which would make it 23, if we’re all adding together.)
Maternity Clothes? Oh, most definitely.
Stretch Marks? No new ones! The Palmer’s Skin Therapy Oil has definitely helped reduce the ones I already had.
Sleep? Thank goodness for the Hypnobabies tracks. They help me get to sleep, stay asleep longer, and get back to sleep.
Best Moment This Week: Feeling the little tiny baby knees, elbows, or feet pushing out against my abdominal wall.
Movement: Lots of it!
Food Cravings: I still want bagels, but now I only want Everything bagels.
Gender: We still think it’s a girl
Labor Signs: No, but I’m definitely feeling the Braxton-Hicks this time. I never noticed them with Seth. I especially feel them when I walk or stand too much, or after bending over a lot.
Belly Button: Streeeeetching out. I may yet have an outie with this one!
What I miss: I still miss sushi alot, and the great weather is starting to make me miss margaritas!
What I am looking forward to: the end of the second trimester – it’s coming faster than I expected!
Weekly Wisdom: I shouldn’t expect to drive home from a glucose tolerance test.
Milestones: Starting to see and feel the little baby parts poking on the outside of my stomach!
