25 Week Survey- Baby O #2

How far along? 25 weeks
Total weight gain/loss:+1, so back up to 156 lbs.  15 lbs. total.  Had gained 22 lbs. total with Graydon at 25 wks along.
How big is baby?  Baby gained almost half a pound this week!!! 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. - Baby Center
Maternity clothes?  Yes, mostly. Except for my sweaters I wear over almost everything.
Sleep: Pretty good! Still have not really had to get up in the night to use the bathroom (woo hoo!)  I seem to wake up and be on my back a lot, but I'm able to fall right back asleep. Using a wedge and pillow between my knees to stay comfortable and it works well. I am SO tired every day though it seems...especially  just sitting at my desk at work!
Best moment this week: Going Trick or Treating with Graydon and Nancy's Halloween get together, Dave and Sandy's wedding (so much fun with my coworkers!), having dinner with my in-laws, and a night without Gray, even though I missed him...it was nice to sleep in.  Sunday night I spent some time with Lyn and Mike and Lyn and I made Arancini....they were amazing! We had such a nice dinner.
Movement: Yes, a lot!
Food cravings: Coffee, juice, chocolate, ice cream
Food aversions:  Some meats and vegetables.
Gender: Team pink
Labor Signs: Nada
Symptoms:  Being tired on and off and sore breasts.
Belly Button in or out? It is getting flatter!
Wedding rings on or off?  Still on and for a long time hopefully. :)
Stretchmarks? The ones around my belly button are starting to become more noticeable. 
How are you feeling? Great for the most part. I seem to feel very tired at work though. Wish I could sleep in a little more sometimes! Graydon gets up so early!
 What I am looking forward to: The election being over, and a weekend with not too much going on..which means getting stuff done around the house!
What I miss:  Having normal energy all the time and working out. Raw sushi.
Weekly Wisdom:
Drink lots of water!
Milestones:  25 Weeks. Only 15 left to go. It is going by so fast. I also had a doctor's appointment on Friday. Within the next couple of weeks I need to drink the glucose juice and get my blood drawn...and also get my Rhogam Shot (I hate that!!!)
Pregnancy Moments with Chris and others:  Not too many that I can think of this week!
