25 Weeks: Knocking on Wood


The weeks just keep ticking by...faster and faster each week it seems!

How far along?
25 weeks

How big is baby?
A head of cauliflower or a Baseball glove ~13.5" and ~1.46lbs

What's baby up to this week?
Baby Smith's lungs are continuing to develop and he can now tell which way is up and which way is down.

Symptoms?
This past weekend I was bragging to AJ that I haven't really experienced many of the symptoms my app told me to expect at this point...and then it was like the universe tried to teach me a lesson. I had horrible heart burn and back pain all day Sunday...but other than that I have been feeling great! Next time though...I'll knock on wood when bragging about feeling so great ;-)

Maternity Clothes?
I ordered 2 pairs of pants and a couple of shirts from Old Navy and they arrived today. I know maternity clothes aren't meant to be on the edge of fashion...but ugh, can't they be a little cuter...and with normal inseams. Pregnancy does not in fact make one taller (I wish)

Sleep?
I have been sleeping great...and sleeping in, thanks to Winter Break! My only complaint is my back is really stiff and sore when I wake up. I can't wait to sleep on my back/stomach again!

Missing Anything?
Other than sleeping on my back/stomach, not a thing!

Craving?
Nothing in particular...my appetite has definitely returned, so pretty much anything will do. 

Aversions?
See above...I will pretty much eat anything.

Emotions?
 I had a little break-down on Saturday...it had been a very long and busy week and I was trying to get ready for a holiday party that required a dress...and let's just say between the exhaustion and not having many clothes that fit I was not in a good place. Other than that, Winter Break has me in a fabulous mood :)

Movement?
Goodness...this little man has gotten STRONG! His kicks and pokes are so strong and shake my whole belly! It's fun to feel him, and even cooler to see him moving around. This weekend I definitely felt a body part poke out...it was more than just he regular little pokes, it was like he did a full on flip and shoved an elbow out! It's weird...but also...SO SO cool!

Best Moment of the week?
Walking out of school Tuesday afternoon and starting WINTER BREAK!!! I was in desperate need of a reset and some time to get things checked off my to-do list!

Pregnancy Brain Moments?
I just about walked out the door without my lunch AGAIN this week...you would think with my appetite being what it is right now I wouldn't forget something so important. 

Looking forward to?
Hosting Christmas Eve at our house and spending the whole weekend with our families!

Projects/Baby Gear purchased?
Our crib came in, and we went and picked it up and got it all put together!

Running?
It has been BRUTALLY cold and icy this week so I put in some quality time with ol' Millie girl. It's not my favorite way to get in a run...but it's better than nothing...AND I find that the treadmill is lower impact so it's easier on my hips.

 My initial goal for running was to make it through the second trimester...and as that date gets closer I get more and more confident that not only will I be able to keep running, but that I will be able to run through much of 3rd trimester too! I'm not running far...or fast...but I have (finally) come to terms  with  that at this point running (even just a few miles) is running..and if taking it slow and steady keeps me running I'll do it :-)
