How far along: 25w0d
Baby’s size: 14.02 in., 1.68 lbs., about the size of a papaya.
Total weight gain: I made up for no gain two weeks ago, up 2.2 lbs. this week, so up 12.5 lbs. from egg retrieval.
Stretch marks: Nothing new since the start of this pregnancy!
Sleep: Still depends on the night, getting up 3+ times to pee though.
Symptoms/Feeling: I’m still really stuffy, but surprisingly I haven’t felt nearly as much pelvic pressure the past few days. So happy for that! And certainly getting more excited, this feels more and more real the more I feel her kick and move.
Best moment of this week: Eric and I had a very nice, relaxing dinner at One Twenty Six on Valentine’s Day. Nice to spend some time together, actually talking, rather than texting friends and watching TV!
Miss anything: Bending over, I need more slip on shoes!
Movement: Yes, I feel her most after my morning latte and at night when I crawl into bed. Such a cool feeling!
Food cravings: Still eating two oranges every night!
Labor signs: The next ultrasound to recheck my cervix is Thursday, February 26th, so still over a week away. I’m really hoping for no change since most of the pressure I was experiencing seems to be gone.
Belly button in or out: Still in and it better stay that way!
Wedding rings on or off: On!
Happy or moody most of the time: Happy but stressed too. Last night I organized a few more things in her room, which really doesn’t resemble much of a baby’s room since she’ll only be there a month or so. I got the monitor out and Eric had a bit of fun tormenting the dog, asking her if she wanted treats through the intercom feature. Poor Kona didn’t know where the heck the voice was coming from!
Looking forward to: Too soon to say her birth? All this preparation… I’m just ready to meet her!
Purchases for baby: I might have splurged on a high chair. But… in my defense, this thing appears to be usable from birth till I’m sick of it. I’m anxious for it to arrive!
Eric’s reactions: Eric reminded me last night that he still hasn’t felt her kick, which I thought was cute of him to remember and mention. One of these nights I need to pay attention and let him feel her 😉
