How far along? 25 weeks
Due Date: August 2, 2011
Due Date: August 2, 2011
Total weight gain/loss: 10 pounds
Maternity clothes? Oh yes and I'm loving them!! It makes me wonder why you'd ever want to wear jeans that don't have the comfort of a full stretchy panel over your belly.
Stretch Marks? Nada...keep working for me, Bio Oil!
Sleep: I'm sleeping fairly well, but have realized I'll never really sleep like I used to again. I am not comfortable in one position for more than a few hours and then once I'm changing positions, I've got to get up and pee. After I pee, I contract a few times so that makes it difficult to get comfortable, but it's been going on so long now that at least I know to expect it every time. I guess gone are my days of sleeping soundly for a ridiculous amount of hours and sleeping in. Bye, bye, old life.
Best moment this week: Shopping with my sister was so much fun last week! I also decided on a paint color for the nursery and bought that and I'm about to order the first (and most expensive) piece of furniture for the baby's room.
I also visited my first day care option today, which was exciting, but scary all at the same time. I'd say I was pretty productive this week (well for me anyway).
Movement: She's crazy, especially in the late afternoon and when I lay down for bed at night on my side. She's a late riser, so maybe she'll fit right into this family's lifestyle. :) (Wishful thinking) It never fails though that whenever I'm with my mother-in-law and she wants to feel her move, she never performs.
Food cravings: Breakfast food (this week)
Food aversions: CHICKEN! (Will I ever look at you the same?)
Gender: Girl (at least I hope she still is or I'm gonna have to start returning some things)
Labor Signs: I'm still having a few random contractions here and there, but nothing painful or regular. I did have quite a lot of contractions in a short amount of time on Saturday evening, so I took 1 Procardia, but they really didn't subside for about an hour and a half. I have a hard time believing the Procardia had anything to do with that since it took so long. I guess I'm just one of those girls doomed to contract most of my pregnancy.
Belly Button in or out? Innie, although it's getting a lot more shallow and I'm wondering if it will eventually get flat. The top of it is getting stretched a lot though and it itches all the time!
What I miss: Sleeping on my back without feeling a little paranoid and being able to shave my legs and tie my shoes comfortably.
What I am looking forward to: Moving all the current furniture out of the baby's room and painting it!
