25 Weeks





Size of Baby: According to Baby Center, the size of a rutabega (I don't even know what that is...) - about 13 1/2 inches and about a pound and a half.

Total Weight Gain/Loss: Up almost 6 pounds fromt pre-pregnancy now

Maternity Clothes: Pants are definitely required...I can wear pajama pants around the house still, but maternity pants only in public.  I might have a few shirts that I could still wear, but I've been wearing all maternity!  Although I still do have a few pairs of pants that are too big.

Gender: It's a GIRL!  Emma Ramey

Belly Button In/Out: Still in, but not by much!  It stretches out a little further every week.  I'm going to be an "outie" if it stretches out much more!

Stretch Marks: None, thank goodness!  Those weird varicose vein looking things on my belly are more prominent this week though.

Movement: She's been moving a lot more during the day this week...pretty much non-stop over the past two or three days!

Sleep: Really not bad, but I have been waking up super early again.

What I miss: I normally take showers and baths like scalding hot, and I can't do that right now.  This week, I'd really like a hot shower as cold as it's been!

What I am looking forward to: Our 4D ultrasound is Tuesday!

Cravings/Aversions: Nothing really, I just know it if I haven't eaten...it isn't pleasant! :)

Symptoms: Some pain last night...to the point where I had to take a warm bath to try to calm it down.  It scared me a little, but it's gone this morning, so I think it was just stretching.  I'll occasionally have a contraction, but nothing consistent and painless.

Best Moment This Week: Feeling her kick all day!
