25 Weeks!

How Far Along: Week 25 is complete!

Size of Baby as Relative to Common Household Fruit or Vegetable: Baby is the size big ol' rutabaga 

Weight Gain:  brace yourself---19lbs. I'm so embarrassed. The past two weeks it's been really noticeable. Everything is tight. I'm disappointed in how I've been eating especially with my gestational diabetes. My sugars have been decent, which is not an excuse, but I know it's how I've been rationalizing my nightly sweet treats. 

Gender: BABY GIRL!!!!!

Movement: Lots and lots of movement. Some hard kicks and some little ones. She's most active when I first wake up and lay in bed a minute. Then right before dinner and right after. But she's starting to make her presence known all day. 
Sleep: Sleeping well. I'm accustomed to the frequent bathroom breaks. It's getting more and more difficult to get in and out of bed. But I've got my arsenal of pillows to get comfy once I'm there. 
What I miss: Nothing noticeable this week. 
Cravings: Nothing in particular

Symptoms: Started feeling contractions at 25w3d. No pain, but some tightening in the middle of my tummy. It freaked me out so I stayed up all night waiting to see if I'd feel it again. I didn't. I told me doc and she didn't like it so she told me to call if it happened again. Friday night they started coming pretty often. I had three in about an hour. So I called. Came in. Not fun. I'm also feeling huge, even though my bump doesn't look too much bigger. 
Best moment of the week: Receiving my diaper bag and crib in the mail. It was an early birthday gift from my parents and I love both of them. We haven't set up the crib yet, still have to pain!
Worst moment of the week: my dr. appt this week where I found out I was funneling and cervix was measuring between 2-3cm. Down from 4cm the week before. Then of course, the trip to labor and delivery. I swear, just when I was feeling relaxed-I get a wake up call that this pregnancy is going to keep me on my toes. 
Dr. appointment is Wednesday at 4. I am counting down the minutes!


  1. I'm glad things are still going fairly well and that she is still staying in there! I'm still thinking and praying for you!

  2. When is your due date? I'm due Oct. 11 so I'm kind of following this journey too. (I think I found you from Kelly's Korner?) Anyhow, here's to hoping your cervix stays closed as long as possible!!!
