25 Weeks

25 Weeks

Total Weight Gain: 11 lbs.

Maternity Clothes?  Really trying to hold myself back from buying more clothes since I have no idea how big I'll get!  So right now, my wardrobe is pretty limited!  Sunshine...I am still waiting for you so I can wear all my sundresses.

Wedding Rings On or Off? On, no swelling here!

Stretch Marks?  Not at all, still looking great!

Sleep?  I forgot to bring my snoogle with me during my trip home this week!  No idea how it got left behind.  Nevertheless, sleep has been okay with me, but I'm starting to have some strange dreams.

Best Moment This Week:  Celebrating Easter with my family!  Both of my parents had a chance to feel Liam moving around.  It is so wonderful to be able to share this experience with them!

Miss Anything?  This week I have just been dying to have a bagel with lox and cream cheese.  I really can't get it out of my head!  Right now, I think this will be my first meal after the baby comes and an ice cold pint of hard cider, mmm.  My mouth is already watering...

Movement?  He is always on the move.  I'm starting to be able to distinguish arms/legs from his head.  I'm also feeling his somersaults in there which is a whole new experience!

Food Cravings:  Still eating lots of oatmeal, but after three weeks of lemon poppy seed pancakes I took a brief break from them this weekend, for Conor's sake.  :-)  I made a batch of "puppy chow" this week and had to hold myself back from devouring it in one sitting!  Good thing I have the Costco box of chex mix...so I can keep making more! 

Food Aversions:  Appetite was great again this week.  I'm always hungry and eating everything.  The smells of some foods are still bothering me though...doing dishes is no fun.

Symptoms:  There is a slight chance I've had a few braxton hicks contractions, but I'm not positive.  I'm also afraid to admit that I may have a slight waddle at times, oh no!

Staying Active?  Yes!  However, I had a little health scare this week and my doctor has recommended that I take it easy on the running since it's high impact.  He said the elliptical, walking, or swimming should be fine.  This news was so upsetting to me, more so than I would have thought.  I don't get the same "high" from being on an elliptical...  My pregnancy hormones got the best of me on Friday: I cracked my favorite water bottle on my way into the gym and then almost found myself in tears watching all the other girls run while I'm was stuck on the elliptical...poor me!   Swimming is going to become my new addiction and I'm hoping it will give me the same great workout as running has been for me. 

Belly Button:  Still "in" but getting flatter, although Conor says I've been saying this for weeks...  My old belly button ring hole is becoming more noticeable as everything stretches.   I took it out long before I was pregnant, so hopefully that helped in making it not as noticeable.  I'm still regretting the decision to ever get it pierced!  Yes mom, you were right...

Happy or Moody? I am always happy!  But, pregnancy does allow me to feel a wide variety of other emotions in a given week!

Nursery Progress:  Still oogling all the options!  Hoping to make some decisions this week.

Looking Forward to:  Everything!  Each day I get more & more excited to meet Liam, but I'm still enjoying the process of being pregnant.
