How far along| 25 weeks
Baby’s Size| According to BabyCenter.com, “Head to heels, your baby now measures about 13 1/2 inches. Her weight — a pound and a half — isn’t much more than an average rutabaga, but she’s beginning to exchange her long, lean look for some baby fat.” Now tell me, do you know what a rutabaga is? I don’t. BabyCenter needs to get a new list of fruit and veg to compare babies to 🙂
Weight Gain| +5 pounds
Sleep| Poor. So so poor. I can’t seem to fall back to sleep after my second nightly trip to the bathroom. Every ache seems to bug me: shoulders, hips. Ugh.
Clothes| Same ‘ole, same ‘ole: me-made pieces sprinkled with some non-maternity ready-to-wear clothes (except for the jeans. Those are maternity wear).
Cravings| Sweets. I am so looking forward to baking a pumpkin cheesecake for Thanksgiving! I’ve been wanting some for ages but decided to hold out for the special occasion.
Food Aversions| Nothing.
Symptoms| Hip pain during sleep.
Movement| This morning Chexie was doing the lambada. I have a dancer in my belly for sure.
Belly Button| Innie.
Baby’s Sex| Boy.
Highlight of the Week| Being able to hang out with friends for one last time. 14 days before we move. Yikes!
What I miss| Solid sleep. I think I can say goodbye to that forever, right?
My brain is officially mush. I don’t have anything funny, clever, or interesting to say. Except this: I am really looking forward to celebrating Thanksgiving with friends. And cheesecake. I’m really looking forward to cheesecake.
