Week 25

We finally got the internet at home!  I'll post pictures when I have some time.  These past 4 weeks have been insane.  I've not been feeling 100% since the beginning of school.  This happened last year too, it seems like I catch everything the kids bring in but I can't stay home and rest or just stop talking so that my throat can heal.  I wonder how well charades would go in Kindergarten...

I just love my husband.  I feel so supported with all the changes going on with this bod!  This week my back has started to hurt, since all my weight is up front, and he's always offering to rub my back or make dinner or bring me Wendy's frosties.  He's nice.  He painted the baby room Benjamin Moore Hale Navy - it is GORGEOUS!  I love it.  We might even paint our bedroom this color.  Our bed arrives on Saturday and I can't wait to sleep on it.  I think it will make a difference and help me get more comfortable since my belly is getting large and in charge.

I finished my registries at Target and Babies R Us.  I can't even tell you what I registered for, I just clicked on lots of things.  There are so many things for babies!  Surely I don't need all that stuff!

  • How far along? 25 weeks
  • Total weight gain? I see the doctor on the 15th but I weighed myself at my school nurse's office and I weigh 141!  That's 11 pounds, yay!
  • Stretch marks? Not yet... but my skin has most definitely stretched.
  • Sleep? Can't get enough.  Tired a lot.
  • Best moment this week? Having Mason's room painted.  It makes it seem more real and that he's coming sooner than I think!
  • Miss anything? Being able to bend over comfortably (I used to have to a lot to tie shoes- my class is learning to tie shoes quickly or just deal with their shoes being untied.)
  • Movement: Yes and now I can feel him on both sides of my belly at the same time.  He's stretching out in there!
  • Food cravings: Anything cold feels good on my throat.  Hot things feel good too.
  • Anything making you queasy or sick? No.
  • Showing?  All in front.
  • Gender: Boy
  • Labor signs: No
  • Belly button in or out: Not all the way out yet but close, the kids like to poke it so I'm having to get used to it being touched!
  • Wedding rings on or off? On.
  • Happy or moody most of the time? Happy but tired still
  • Looking forward to: yoga on Thursday - last week was so nice and I learned so many comfortable positions to alleviate my back pain, and also to help with labor/delivery.
  • Baby's fruit size: Cauliflower
