How Far Along: 25 weeks
Size of baby: Head to heels, your baby now measures about 13 1/2 inches. weight — a pound and a half — isn't much more than an average rutabaga, but he's beginning to exchange her long, lean look for some baby fat.
Gender: IT'S A BOY!! We finally agreed on a name... and that we want to keep it a secret! Okay, we've told a few people but are trying to keep it a surprise for the most part!
Maternity Clothes: Yep. I can still wear my jeans and dresses but most of the tops are maternity. I think maternity clothes are one of my least favorite parts of being pregnant. They are so expensive and often hard to find. I wish I could wear sweatpants everyday!
Movement: Our little guy is constantly moving. Matt felt him move for the first time on Christmas day. He's definitely getting stronger. I forgot how much I love feeling a baby move, it is such a special feeling.
Sleep: No problems!
Symptoms: Nothing really, I feel like my ankles are a little puffy and I might be retaining water so I've tried to cut back on salt. Other than that, feeling good!
Cravings: I haven't been craving anything, in fact, I haven't had that much of an appetite. I guess I ate more than enough during the holidays!
Best moment this week: We are finally starting to make progress on this little guy's nursery. I bought fabric for his crib bedding and found a crib online that I think we're going to purchase this week. I'm very stressed about what where I'm going to put everything that is currently in his room... right now it is our guest/sewing/craft/storage room and I really need to start moving stuff out. Not looking forward to that!
