Bumpdate: Week 25

Look at that belly!

Size of the baby: a rutabaga, about 1.5 pounds

Total weight gain: 13 pounds

Maternity clothes: No new purchases but I've been reading up on pregnancy support belts.  I'm carrying so low that one may help my back on days when I have to do a lot of walking.  I think I'll buy one after the holiday (when it's safe to go into a mall).

Gender:  All pink over here!

Nursery:  Our crib is assembled!  Our stroller is assembled!  And we are buying paint samples on Tuesday, R plans to start painting the weekend after Christmas.  I also bought several baskets so I can start organizing her closet.

Sleep:  I'm sleeping well but I'm congested in the mornings.  It may not have anything to do with the pregnancy since R has been congested too.  We have started using the Crane humidifier that we bought to use when the baby is born.  Oh it makes such a difference.  We will need to get our own once nugget moves into her nursery.

What I miss:  Nothing really this week.  It would be nice to bend over comfortably.

Cravings:  Cinnamon gum.  Milkshakes.  Buttered grits. I can't wait for our Christmas even dinner!

Other symptoms:  My belly button is still "in" and I haven't developed a linea belly is just a belly so far.  I'm having a bit of back and round ligament pain.  Numb hands in the mornings, it can be difficult for me to turn my alarm off.  I get easily frustrated which is definitely a hormone thing.  Oh and I lost my taste for food a couple of nights...I can still eat, no problem with my appetite but I can't tell you what I want to eat (this is R's pet peeve).

Best moments:  I feel her move all the time now!  Even R has felt her several times.  Seeing her crib put together and getting to test drive her stroller.  We've planned our Christmas eve and we have a game plan for Christmas's going to be exhausting so we have planned nothing for the Friday after.

I can't believe the third trimester is almost here.  She's getting bigger and I can feel her getting stronger every week.
