25 Weeks Today

How far along? 25 weeks

Total weight gain: Haven't gained in a few weeks

How big is baby? From -

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. As she does, her wrinkled skin will begin to smooth out and she'll start to look more and more like a newborn. She's also growing more hair — and if you could see it, you'd now be able to discern its color and texture.

Maternity clothes: The only pre-pg clothes I can get away with now are yoga pants (and I wish I had more than 1 pair!) and open cardigans

Stretch marks: None yet. I did have a horrifying dream last night that I had them ALL OVER my stomach. Each one stretched from top to bottom. It was not a pretty sight!

Sleep: Interrupted and not comfortable. I really miss good sleep!

Movement: She is especially active at night. Funny, isn't it? Felicity, let your momma sleep, please!

Food cravings: I don't think anything really stood out this week

Food aversions: Still red meat. I can barely look at it

Belly button: Hasn't changed at all. I'm starting to doubt it will pop, which is fine with me

Symptoms: Achy body, still having some nausea and vomiting, heartburn, bad sleep, swollen hand and feet...and my nails aren't even growing fast. Not fair!

What I'm looking forward to: Last night I was thinking about how sweet M will look when he holds her. I can't wait to see their daddy/daughter moments

Weekly Wisdom: Take your shoes off and put your feet up as much as possible

Weekly joy: We bought our first piece of nursery furniture on monday - a dresser/changing table combo!
