|Not the best picture to reflect the bump- it's growing..... A LOT!|
Along: 25 weeks
Size of baby: The peanut is the size of a cantaloupe. She/he weighs around 1 ½ pounds. I will have a 28 week sonogram in a couple weeks- I will know more exact measurements then. Baby has capillaries forming and filling with blood under his/her skin. By weeks end- air sacs will develop in his/her lungs getting the peanut ready for the first breath when born.
Total Weight Gain: 15-17 pounds
Maternity Clothes: I am in a mixture. I plan on going out this weekend to get a couple tops/dresses. My selection is becoming more and more limited. I am hoping to find some stuff that I could use after I have the peanut. We shall see!
Gender: It's a surprise. While with my girlfriends this weekend, they did a bunch of the old wives tale tests. I think it was about 60/40 in favor of a girl. I will be so excited either way!
Movement: YES! I feel it most in the mornings and as I’m going to bed. I find myself taking the occasional work break to watch my belly move. I love this part of pregnancy; it is such a special time between mama and baby.
Sleep: Blah. 7-9 hours a night. I wake up a lot and have trouble getting comfortable.
What I miss: I miss sleeping through the night.
Cravings: Fruit, sweets, turkey sandwiches, cold salads, and any type of bread.
Symptoms: Swelling, mood swings, back pain, pressure, and small bladder
Best Moment This Week: I had a weekend of being social. Saturday, I went to Fort Worth to celebrate Kristin’s upcoming wedding. It was WONDERFUL. I can’t wait until the next Baylor girls reunion. On Sunday afternoon, Matt, Noah, and I were able to have lunch with my work/ boot camp buddy, Tara, and her husband Dave. I hadn't realized how homesick for familiar faces I had become since being away from Austin over a month. We hope the Emmel's will come back and visit us soon. They had been at Six Flags the day after the woman had fallen out of the roller coaster- needless to say- I think they are brave!
I felt so refreshed starting the week. I posted pictures from the weekend yesterday, so I will leave y’all with a couple new pictures of the Clem clan!
