So, let's just avoid that thought for now. Here's your weekly 'bump'date:
|My husband's awesome photography skills involved cutting the top of my head off this week.|
How Far Along: 25 weeks! Just two weeks left of my second trimester!
Baby's Size: According to Babycenter, baby boy is the size of a rutabaga (whatever that is!) and weighs about a pound and a half. He is also over a foot long now - no wonder I can feel him moving around in there a lot more lately!
Total Weight Gain: I won't weigh in until my next appointment this Friday. At my last appointment (about 2 weeks ago), I was up a total of 18ish lbs, so probably somewhere around 20 by now. Right now, I seem to be all belly - baby boy sticks right off the front of me like a basketball.
|See the basketball?|
Maternity Clothes? Yep. I feel like I am starting to run out of cute outfit options so I may have to do some shopping in the near future. A lot of my pre-preggo tops and dresses still fit fine, but I need a few more pants or skirts to start pairing with.
Best Moment This Week: Getting the nursery completely cleared out and cleaned. We will be painting this weekend and I can't wait to see what it looks like with our chosen color. Each little task brings us one step closer to bringing home our little man. So exciting!
Gender: It's a boy. Caleb Monroe. He is so loved!
Movement: As mentioned last week, I been feeling a lot more movement these days. Caleb likes to remind me that he's down there in my tummy just hanging out, and I am loving it. Over the past couple of weeks, B, my mom, B's mom and B's little sister have all gotten to feel his little bumps and nudges, which was a really neat experience to share with them.
Food Cravings: Potato chips - which I just can't stop eating. Maybe I will swear them off after giving birth - that'd be nice. Fruit. Sweettarts. Applesauce. Carbs.
Food Aversions: Uncooked chicken - gag. Onion, garlic, caramel and coffee scents.
What I Miss: Ice cold glasses of frosty Coca Cola. Yum. And turkey meat. I would kill for a classic deli sandwich right now. Like, right now. Oh, and sushi. I've never wanted a spicy shrimp roll more. Apparently, I'm all about the food I can't have this week.
Sleep? I think I am giving up on attempting to get an uninterrupted night of sleep. It just doesn't happen. I am not a 'getting up 5 times to use the restroom' preggo - which I am thankful for. But, I do seem to just wake up randomly, for no apparent reason, which is almost more frustrating than having to wake up to pee.
What I'm Looking Forward To: Continued nursery progress this weekend - which feeds my little nesting mama's heart.
