25 Week Survey!

We have been so busy!! It has been hard to even keep up with these weekly surveys. Thankfully I just got a little break at work!

How far along?
25 Weeks!
Total weight gain/loss: -1 this week. Never had a loss before? So now that is 22 lbs. total.
How big is baby? Supposed to be 1 1/2 lbs, and 13.5 inches long! Grow baby grow!
Maternity clothes? Yes and no. I wear a lot of larger sizes from Target and Old Navy.
Sleep: Good, especially this week. I am OUT the minute I hit the pillow! But that is from staying up too late and then having to wake up early every tired!
Best moment this week: Our upstairs is almost finished. PTL! We have been waiting for this for a while it seems.
Movement: Yes! Especially in the evening and if I am leaning back I can really feel it. Sometimes I am wondering what in the world he is doing in there! :)
Food cravings: I am a fan of sweets again, which is a bad thing. Always really thirsty and want either juice, or sometimes Squirt.
Gender: Team Blue!
Labor Signs: nope
Belly Button in or out? I would say it is pretty flat at this point.
Stretchmarks? I have noticed a couple tiny ones on one of my boobs...oh well! I am pretty sure they have gotten a tad bigger again. I am using Organic Palmer's Cocoa Butter cream in the morning and this "Beautiful Belly Balm" at night that I got at our local health food store.
How are you feeling? Great, except my back and hips hurt most of the time, especially if I am sitting. I prefer to stand as much as I can. And the tiredness this week is my own fault! Everyone keeps telling me not to over-do it but it is hard. It is a busy time of year!
What I am looking forward to: Getting all of our stuff moved upstairs to and starting to work on the nursery.
What I miss: sleep!
Weekly Wisdom: Don't over-do it.
Milestones: Reaching 25 weeks. It seems surreal...and soon will come 3rd tri!!! AHH!!

So these are the first belly pics in our new upstairs! I want to do a post about it but want to wait until more of the furniture is put together and moved up there. Also, I am wearing all normal clothes here, Yoga pants and tank from Old Navy (LOVE that place!) just in larger sizes. Siggy also felt the need to get in on the picture.

Just me and my boys!

How your baby's growing

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.
