This weekend turned out to be a wash in terms of weather, it was cold and rainy and I was un-motivated to wear anything but leggings. I did manage to still get outside for a walk on Saturday, before the rain and get a picture of my belly at 25 weeks!
How far along: 25 Weeks
Total weight gain: I am not weighing myself at home, because the scale here says something different than the dr.’s scale. But as of last week I was up 20 pounds. Slightly more than I wanted to gain at this point, but it was all the first trimester because of all my food aversions. Since then the weight gain has been right on point, hoping it’ll slow down a little bit so I don’t gain more than 35 pounds.
Stretch marks: None yet.
Maternity clothes: Yes, but some of my pre-pregnancy shirts still fit, so making sure I wear them now before I can’t anymore!
Belly Button in or out?: In
Sleep: Still pretty good! Both nights this weekend I slept almost 10 hours each! Might as well get it in now before it’ll be taken away by a crying baby!
Best moment this week: Having a great 24 week dr.’s appt. Everything’s looking good, and that’s all I can ask for!
Worst moment this week: Having a “I have no idea what to wear to work” moment.
Miss Anything?: Wine, feta and running. I know I can still run, but with my bad back I know it’s best that I don’t. Although i’ve been jogging a little bit during my walks.
Movement: Non-stop movement! Feel it mostly when i’m sitting or laying down and little girls seems to be kicking my bladder!
Food cravings: I don’t really have any cravings that are weird. Been craving eggplant parm, anything iced (iced coffees, iced tea, etc. all decaf of course), chinese food.
Anything making you queasy or sick: No, thank god that’s been over for awhile now.
Have you started to show yet: YES! Over the past week I feel like i’m really starting to pop, to the point where other people are really starting to notice. The belly literally gets bigger overnight!
Symptoms: Honestly, nothing to really complain about. I am blessed to be having a great pregnancy. I do have some symptoms that are a little bothersome: having to pee every 15 minutes, slightly swollen feet once in awhile, overheating.
Happy or Moody most of the time: Now that my hormones have leveled out, the moodiness is gone. Mostly happy, with an occasional sobfest watching TV. (i.e. Vampire Diaries season finale)
What I’m reading: Still reading through What To Expect When You’re Expecting but really need to start reading up about when baby comes. Any recommendations?
Looking forward to: The baby nursery being painted this week!
