(weight of a rutabaga)
How Far Along: 25 weeks! Only 1.5 weeks until the third trimester!!!
Size of baby (from babycenter.com): Your baby rivals the average rutabaga in weight -- about 1 1/2 pounds. (Length: 13 1/2 inches, head to heel.)
My baby this week (from babycenter.com): Head to heels, your baby now measures about 13 1/2 inches. Her weight — a pound and a half — isn't much more than an average rutabaga, but she's beginning to exchange her long, lean look for some baby fat. As she does, her wrinkled skin will begin to smooth out and she'll start to look more and more like a newborn. She's also growing more hair — and if you could see it, you'd now be able to discern its color and texture.
Stretch Marks: No.
Sleep: The past week has been pretty good. I upped my pillow count to 5 pillows now. One for my head and 2 for each side of me (1 up by my torso and 1 by my legs).
Best Moment of the Week: This is now the category "worst moment of the week".... Getting weighed at the OB's office. Holy hell am I fat as as hell. I am on par to hit 200 lbs before this baby is born. I don't really eat that poorly and I take walks everyday. What gives?!?!?
Movement: Yes. It was ramping up to be a lot but the last day or two it hasn't been the much. I wonder if he moved to a different position where I can't feel him as well.
Food cravings: No cravings. Especially after I got weighed!
What I Miss: Being able to shave parts of my body that need sight to shave. :(
What I'm Looking Forward To: I am excited to see him again on June 28th's sono and then even more on July 7th's 3D ultrasound!
Milestones: Every day he has more and more chance to survive outside the womb!
Emotions: Everything spans from getting weighed... so my emotions this week are sad. I worked hard to get thin before this pregnancy and I just feel like I am throwing it all away. I know he is so worth it but it still sucks!
Symptoms: I now am a proud Tums consumer for heartburn.
