How many weeks: 25!
Size of baby: Size of a rutabaga
Weight Gain: 18 lbs (clearly it looks like the latest 6 lbs went to my arms. ugh.)
Maternity Clothes: yes please! I mostly wear dresses because it's just so much easier. I've added bike shorts under the dresses because...well...I'm sure I don't have to go there.
Gender: it's a BOY! Judd Richard
Movement: Ok, if it's possible to have a more hyperactive child than Ava, it's gonna be little Judd man. He moves constantly!! Especially when I am still. He is my mover and shaker. WE. ARE. SCARED.
Sleep: Sleeping pretty good. I get a little freaked out at this point because I wake up on my back a lot which is a no no. Just upped my pillows from 2 to 6 (ok maybe just 4) to stop all that though. So far it's helping! I wake up super early and then get sleepy each day around 1pm. I am exhausted every afternoon and fight off taking naps like it's my job!
What I Miss: Sleeping on my stomach and my memory. I am so forgetful these days!! The pregnancy brain is no joke and I'm sure all involved with me these days are less than happy about my absent mindedness. I also miss bending over with ease. Now it seems like I always have to make some loud sigh as I am struggling to get up and down.
I also miss shaving my legs in the shower. I think this is the worst part about being pregnant in the summer. Even worse than battling the heat. But ask me again in a few weeks and I may change my mind.
Cravings: No cravings lately. I eat a lot of dairy, however. Cereal, yogurt, cottage cheese, cheese foldovers. Yep.
Symptoms: My joints are starting to hurt after working long days on my feet. Still not wearing my wedding ring due to the alergic reaction. Other than that I feel great. I'd say I'm a bit more sensitive lately. Or at least this week. I have cried 538 times. Over the DUMBEST things.
Best Moment this Week: Watching him move all about my stomach. And watching Ava watch him and get so tickled. We also registered. That was fun!
