25 Weeks...BIG Milestone!

Thursday, December 8, 2011


 

 can you tell hubby was making me giggle?
How Far Along? 25 weeks, 5 days…ONLY 100 DAYS TO GO! {please tell me that sounds like it is quickly approaching and I am not losing my mind}
Size of Sweet Caroline? 13.5 inches long and she weighs about 1.5 pounds...some websites say she is the size of a rutabaga, while others point to an eggplant--either way, she is growing like a weed.
Maternity Clothes? I am obsessed with maternity jeans...I used to gawk at the idea of wearing something so "mommish", yet they are comfortable and still fashionable. Gap has the best and I've invested in multiple pairs of the Sexy Boot and the Long and Lean styles. It's fun having a growing bump in the winter with all the fun sweaters and tunics, too!
Weight Gain? Drumroll please--19 pounds…when I look at my scale I can't believe I've gained that much, though I know I needed to. My doctor said I was underweight before I got pregnant so she is glad to see I am doing better, though I think most of it has gone to the "ladies" up top--haha. I'll just keep telling myself that "plump" babies are much cuter anyways ;)
Stretch Marks? Nope, but I am itching all the time.
Gender? Sugar and spice and everything nice...that is what little girls are made of.
Movement? Little wee one is active morning, noon, and night these days and has taken a significant liking to resting right on my ribs=painful, but a small sacrifice in the gran scheme of everything.
Sleep? Doing better this week, probably because I have literally worn myself to the point of exhaustion with events, exercising, and work.
Food Cravings? Apple cider--I simply can't get enough. I'm also back on the fruit train...bananas, pomegranates, and blackberries.
What I Miss? Being able to snuggle with Jeff on the couch..he knows I need "my space" these days.
Symptoms? Itchiness, Braxton Hicks, and the fun retaining water phenomenon I've heard so much about.
Best Moment of the Week? Ordering the perfect chair for the nursery, stocking up more of the wee one's closet, and we're meeting with a potential pediatrician tonight--fingers crossed!

  12. I remember getting to that 100 day point and it suddenly seemed SO close! You look great! I'm sorry you are having the rib pain. Grayson sat SO high and my ribs hurt so bad for the last 3 months. It's worth it! :)

  17. If you hadn't said 19 lbs I would have guessed not even 9 lbs...honestly it doesn't look like you've gained anything at all!

  18. I really think that you are the cutest pregnant woman ever! Don't sweat those 19 pounds because you look fabulous! Love these weekly updates, and yes 100 days sounds so soon!

  19. Now that you have said that your doc felt you were underweight and that you've gained 19 lbs... it all makes sense BECAUSE giiiiiirl, it hardly looks like you've even gained 5 lbs. Honestly. I'm sure you feel and see the gain, but as a follower of yours, you still look super tiny. Your lucky that the weight hasn't gone to your hips or arms -- that's my fear. Boobs and belly is a-okay with me, but please Lord... do not expand my hips/thighs. Haha!

    I'm loving your red dress too - how very festive!

    And yes, 100 days left totally seems like a milestone. I mean, tomorrow you'll be in double digits. It's just like counting down for a wedding. Kinda ;)
