Pregnancy Update!

How far along? 25 weeks and 4 days. 14 weeks and 3 days to go! He's the size of an eggplant and weighs almost TWO pounds!

Total weight gain? I weighed myself a few days ago and was up 6-7 pounds.

Maternity clothes? I bought my first pair of maternity pants last week and wore them for the first time yesterday! Some of my regular pants still fit, but they’re just not very comfortable. Yesterday I also got a box full of maternity clothes from my Christen (thank you!) and bought a couple more shirts :)

Stretch marks? Not yet :s I’m keeping my fingers crossed! Ry bought me some lotion (that smells amazing by the way), but I've heard that it might not help at all…that whether or not you get stretch marks depends on how quick you gain weight, genetics, etc.

Sleep? I feel like I sleep well most of the time, but I’m a little more tired than what I feel like I should be.

Missing anything? Sleeping on my back! I don’t know that it matters a ton yet whether or not I do, but I’m a pretty paranoid mama so I try to avoid it.

Movement? He has super wiggly days, and less wiggly days. Something new in the last week or so is that I can actually SEE some of his movements! I absolutely LOVE it. It’s very entertaining to sit and watch my belly :) On less wiggly days I grab the Doppler and count his heart rate just to make sure he’s doing ok. As I previously said, paranoid mama.

Food cravings? Not that I’ve really noticed. I like a food in particular for a while, and then I just don’t like it much after a while. Right now I’m really into Easy Mac. Healthy, huh? I also could eat candy all day long, but I've always had a bad sweet tooth so I can't blame that on the pregnancy unfortunately. 

Anything making you queasy or sick? I don’t do well with scrambled eggs lately. I tried to eat some this morning and I just don’t feel that great after. Bummer.

Have you started to show yet? I say yes…my family doesn't really seem to agree with me on this. I think it really depends on what I’m wearing haha. I showed my mom my baby bump yesterday and all she said was, “some people look like that normally”...dang it. 

Symptoms? This week…being tired. Most of the time I’m fine, but I’m so tired this week! I get heartburn every now and then, but overall, I really can't complain. I feel great. 

Gender? Baby boy!

Labor signs? No, thank heavens! Although I'm not absolutely sure that I will recognize them when they come...

Belly button in or out? Definitely still in…although not as in as it used to be :)

Wedding ring on or off? On, which makes me happy. And I just checked…I can still get it off if needed! Phew.

Happy or moody most of the time? You'd have to ask my hubby but I’d say I’m happy! Moody is situational haha.

Looking forward to? Doctors appointment next week! Each appointment feels like I’ve hit another milestone. Although next week is the glucose tolerance test and I’ve heard the drink is nasty haha.

Best moment this week? Getting my super adorable cardigan onesie! I paid a ridiculous amount for it, but I’ll beg Mel to take a couple pictures of him in it when it fits him. Totally worth it.  I also bought some newborn jammies that are absolutely adorable :) If they fit him when he gets here it might be what I bring him home in!
