How Far Along:
25 weeks 3 days
Size of baby:
According to The Bump, baby girl is the size of a cauliflower this week (some of these I just don't understand the size reference!)
Yes and no. Still wearing a mixture of both and pretty much anything that fits and is comfy.
She's a little wiggle worm and I'm even able to feel her on the outside of my belly every once in awhile. Still haven't gotten Allen to feel her just yet but I'm sure that will come soon enough
I've been sleeping with the Boppy body pillow and with the mattress pad a week now and I am sleeping much better. I wish I had gotten a pregnancy pillow before now and would highly recommend one to every expecting mom. I do have a few complaints with the Boppy pillow so I don't necessarily recommend it but I have heard great things about the Snoogle pillow and Bump Nest pillow (two opposite price ranges though). I've also started using breathe right strips since my allergies are always still so bad and I had started to become a nighttime mouth breather. They've helped so much as well.
What I miss:
As of this very moment, the only thing I can say I truly miss the most is sleeping on my stomach. I can't wait until I'm able to again. Maybe sleeping on my stomach after having a beer
The past few days I kept thinking about Oreos. Not sure what brought on the thought but I finally purchased a small 5.2oz box from the gas station and had 3 cookies last night. They weren't as amazing as I had made my mind up that they were going to be but now that craving is satisfied and I can move onto something else.
Back pains are the bain of my existence at the moment and other than that I'm feeling pretty great (sleep issues aside). Also I have finally started to see the pregnancy effects on my bladder this past week. My whole pregnancy so far I've only gotten up once around 6 am to pee (after going to bed) and for the past few nights I've gotten up twice. Plus I'm going more throughout the day which is different for me as well even though I've always tried to keep hydrated with lots of water/fluids during the day my whole pregnancy. I do believe baby girl is starting to take up more space then she used to!
Favorite Moment This Week:
Finding the perfect, vintage fabric that I'm going to have my Aunt Suzi make into a crib skirt. I've looked at tons of crib bedding and haven't seen anything that I could imagine going with until I found this fabric. Now if only I could find even more and get curtains out of the deal too . . .
Worst Moment This Week:
Honestly it's been a great week so the only thing I didn't like was the glucose drink I had to do yesterday morning for the gestational diabetes blood test. It wasn't horrible but definitely not something I'd enjoy drinking more than once in a pregnancy . . . which means I'm praying for good results so I don't have to do the 3-hour test!
