"Head to heels, your baby now measures about 13 1/2 inches. His weight — a pound and a half — isn't much more than an average rutabaga, but he's beginning to exchange his long, lean look for some baby fat. As he does, his wrinkled skin will begin to smooth out and he'll start to look more and more like a newborn. He's also growing more hair — and if you could see it, you'd now be able to discern its color and texture."
How far along? 25 weeks (and two days)
Baby’s Size: 13 1/2" long and weighing as much as a rutabaga- a pound and a half. Kaleb was actually a pound and a half two weeks ago, whatta big boy!
Total Weight Gain: I don't even check anymore.
Maternity Clothes: Of course. I really need more pants and shirts though.
Gender: Team blue!
Movement: All over the place
Sleep: I got my snoogle out, thank god for that invention!
Symptoms: Started getting round ligament pain a few days ago, talk about painful. I never had that with Nolan and was nearly sure it was contractions, lol.
Best Moments this week: The card from Dennis' grandparents, there are some amazing people in the world who are willing to help in the midst of a crisis. And of course...FRIDAY MORNING!
Food Aversions: WATER?!?! Yep, water. Especially at night. If I drink it I can instantly feel the water sloshing around in my stomach (to the point of being uncomfortable) and then I am nauseous for the next couple of hours. Weird.
Food Cravings: Not too much really.
What I miss: bending over, holding Nolan for long periods of time, I danced with him last night and that almost gave me a heart attack. Phew...
What I am Looking forward to: Tomorrow morning and the cardiologist appointment tomorrow afternoon. Well not really looking forward to that appointment, at all. But it's the next step I guess...
Milestones: I'm almost 7 months pregnant...wow how time flies.
