My belly is covering Ryan's face!
How far along: 25 weeks
Size of Baby: 13.5 in & 1.5 lb
Fruit/vegetable comparison: Rutabaga
Total weight gain: 11 pounds (I think it was all that food I ate in California and sitting on my bum all week. Ha!)
Sleep: Still a little restless. It seems like my bed time routine now involves popping a few tums before I fall asleep. Otherwise, I will wake up with heartburn during the night.
Movement: Oh ya! This little lady has been a mover and a shaker lately. I think she's turned from laying across my belly to being up & down. I can't tell if she's head down or feet down though. I've been feeling her kick (or punch) me in the ribs but it doesn't hurt... yet!
Unglamorous body changes: Mainly just heartburn. I hope the old wives tale it true that having heartburn means lots of hair on the baby's head. I don't know if I believe it but I guess we'll find out soon enough.
Showing: I think I've finally come to the stage where people know that I'm pregnant. But I think certain clothes can still hid it a little bit. People are definitely more freely talking to me about it!
Food cravings: I have been wanting a lot of peanuts or peanut butter lately. But I'm pretty sure my husband is still having more cravings then me! He went to a Chinese buffet 3 times in one week and just made me go with him again yesterday. Ha!
What I miss: Fitting into cute clothes. I've been trying to find a couple of outfits for some up coming showers and it's so hard! I don't want to pay an arm and a leg for something I may wear once.
Milestones: She's enjoying her new sense of equilibrium. She now knows which way is up and which is down. She's growing more fat and more hair too! (thebump.com)
Best moment this week: So much! One of my good friends, Emily, had her baby boy, Caden James, on Thanksgiving Day!! She is a rock star and had him all natural. I can't wait to meet the little guy in person. I also helped out with my bbf's baby shower (more on that later). AND while I was out of town Ryan kept sending me emails with surprises he was doing for me. He hung all our Christmas lights outside, painted the nursery (twice!) and our crib came in so he put it together!!
Looking forward to: Christmas!! We are having it at our house this year and I still haven't gotten all our decorations up yet. I'm such a slacker. I'm also excited to continue to put the nursery together. I have a feeling it's going to take me awhile though...
