25 Weeks

Date: 3/14/13
How far along? 25 Weeks
Baby Size? Eggplant according to What to Expect App
Total weight gain:  19lbs
Maternity clothes? Tunics and leggings and workout clothes and a few dresses --- I had to pack this week for my brother's wedding.  It wasn't easy but I did find a few cute dresses to wear.  One is maternity and the others are not. 
Stretch marks? spotted some on the boobs, using baby oil, palmers and mustela. My belly is starting to itch a little more too.
Miss Anything? I miss being able to have a glass of wine at dinner.  Honestly, going out to dinner is just not as much fun anymore.  There is something about that glass of wine that making the dining out experience so much better!
Movement: Yes lots of movement. So much fun to feel him moving
Food cravings:  still peanut butter and fruit and sweets!
Symptoms: feeling a little pain in my right lower back and peeing a lot
Belly Button in or out? in
Wedding rings on or off? on, but definitely having swelling in my fingers especially in the mornings
Sleep:  Sleeping well thankfully
Best moment this week:  seeing some REAL progress on our house being built.  They finally built the stairwell in our house, so I could go upstairs and see little Brody's future nursery.  I was already planning where the furniture would go.  I can't wait to start decorating. 
Exercise:  Walking as much as I can and pilates on the reformer
Anything making you queasy or sick: No. Happy about that!
Gender Prediction: It's a  BOY
Labor Signs: No
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy! I forgot to mention last week that luckily my bad mood only lasted less than a week.   I was back to being happy and excited pretty quick and actually felt lucky that things worked out the way they did with our rental. 
Looking forward to:  Heading to St. Pete today for my brothers wedding.  I can not wait to see and celebrate with lots of family and friends!  I am so excited to gain another sis-in-law!!

Time seems to be moving pretty slow all the sudden as far as the pregnancy goes.   On one hand, I feel like these weekly posts come around pretty quickly; but since I hit 20 weeks, it seems that progress has slowed down.  I think now I'm just excited to be getting close to THIRTY weeks.
