First of all, thank you all so much for being so sweet in my last post where I whined & had a pity party. That was a shitty day. But, everyone has 'em! I think my husband was about to admit me into the looney bin when I went from hysterically crying & hyperventilating to laughing uncontrollably in a matter of 5 minutes. I felt like such a crazy because I could not control it for the life of me. I had NO clue why I was crying or laughing. ::shakes fists at hormones::
It feels SO bizarre that last week I did my 23 week survey not knowing I was actually 24 weeks! (my doctor told me my due date was September 3rd, rather than the 8th). So here I am, 25 weeks & counting.
Braxton hicks are still making their appearance about 5x a day or more, I can't be on my feet for longer than 45 min without my ankles swelling, the nausea is back!! & my poor belly button feels like it's going to be ripped off. But, I'm pregnant & this is all a part of the crazy ride!
How far along?: 25 weeks. OMIGOD.
How big is baby?: Approx. the size of an eggplant & weighing about 1.5lbs
Weight Gain?: When I weighed this morning I was up another half pound. So, 16.5lbs. But that was before I ate my Paul Bunyan cinnamon roll, so I'm probably up another 5 lbs after eating that thing
Stretch Marks?: Not yet, even though my skin feels like it's going to break from growing so much.
Maternity Clothes?: Still pretty much just pants. Dresses & shirts are non-maternity
Sleep?: Great until I wake up from my hips throbbing.
Best moment this week?: Seeing my belly move from the outside & Receiving baby girl's bedding in the mail & setting it up in her crib! It is soooo perfect! Now we just need a mattress. Haha.
Food Cravings?: Nothing in particular. Just food.
Gender?: Sweet baby girl
Movement? OH YES. I don't think she EVER sleeps. Yesterday & today she's been using my bladder as a pillow/trampoline. No kidding. But earlier this week, I felt kicks up towards my ribs. Crazy girl.
What I miss?: Beer. My long hair (so random). My libido (I think my husband would agree, poor thing).
Belly Button?: Completely flat & stretched.
Labor Signs?: No. Just the braxton hicks. yuck
What I'm looking forward to?: Probably hitting the 3rd TRIMESTER in 3 weeks!!
Milestone?: Reaching viability last week (without me knowing) ha!
I think I've had a small growth

My tootisies are becoming hard to see!!
