Humpday Bumpday // Week 25


how far along: 25 weeks! I'm considering this my "Golden Week" since I'm 25-years old and 25 weeks pregnant!
size of the baby: She's as big as a cauliflower, weighing around 1.5-2.5 pounds and is 13.6-14.8 inches tall!

baby is: enjoying her new sense of equilibrium - she now knows which way is up and which is down! I found this fascinating - this week she has a 50% chance of survival outside the womb because her lungs are starting to produce surfactant, the substance that helps the lungs work!

{Something I sent Ethan to show him how much Charlotte has grown the past 10 weeks!}
movement: She's pretty much got her cycles and most of them involve being right after I've eaten or sat down after being up for awhile. She's most active around 8 a.m. (after breakfast), 2 p.m. (after lunch), 7 p.m. (after dinner), and around10 p.m. (bedtime).
total weight gain: Yikes.. I hit a number I wasn't hoping to hit until 30 weeks. The big 1-8-0. Makes my total weight gain 22 pounds..

stretch marks: Still the same.
symptoms: Tail bone pain and constipation. Stuffy/congested nose and nose bleeds. Breathing is getting a little harder to do and I get winded easily.

wedding rings on or off: On during the day; off at night.

belly button in or out: Still hanging in a little, but pretty flat after I eat.
maternity clothes: Are so dang expensive! I'm going to have to bite the bullet soon and at least get another maxi skirt. I'd love some more work-type shirts, but I'll get by on dressing up my t-shirts for as long as possible!
sleep:  It's ok. I think Charlotte wakes me up in the middle of the night with her kicks. Then of course because I'm up I have to pee. Guess we're just getting prepared for her nighttime feedings!
missing: Being able to sit without my butt hurting and stand without my feet hurting.
cravings/aversions: Still haven't gotten that Coke icee.. need to get that soon before I lose my mind! Ha! Was looking at old Instagram pictures and saw a picture of a funfetti cake I had made ages ago.. guess who had funfetti cake for dinner?!

cries: None that I can think of...

nursery: Making progress! So far we've gotten rid of the bed, cleaned out the closet, and organized a little bit! I've got a friend making her bedding, so I need to pick out the fabrics I want to use and mail those to her!
ethan is: He liked seeing the little dresses hanging in my closet. I guess it makes things just that much more real!
best moments: This!! Double Digits! Is this real life?!

not so best moments: Starting to feel tired again. Not sure if it's from running myself too hard or just that 3rd trimester tiredness is starting up a little early.

looking forward to: Charlotte's crib being delivered this week! My house will have a crib in it by next weekend!

next appointment: April 30th (normal) and May 2 (3D ultrasound!)
