24-25 Survey- Baby O 3#

How far along? 25 Weeks
Total weight gain/loss: 169.5 lbs  +2 lbs in the last couple weeks.  ( I weighed 164 with Gray and 156 with Nora at this point!)
How big is baby?  Head to heels, your baby now measures about 13 1/2 inches. Her weight — 1 1/2 pounds — 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? Still the same- mostly just bottoms though. Most maternity tops are still huge. I love wearing size L or XL tanks right now.  
Sleep:  It has been getting more uncomfortable and I've been waking periodically. 
Best moment this week: The last two weeks:  Jazz at the Zoo on Monday evenings,  having my 24 week appointment. Baby's heart rate was around 150! Finished priming the dining room and bathroom. Cousin Valerie's graduation open house and visiting with family.  Hurt my neck, which was SO terrible! Ugh... :(   Went to the Children's Museum with Marci's who clan and they also had some outdoor activities celebrating their birthday party.  Hung out with one of my best friends Kerri, for her birthday. I did her hair and we went to the mall and walked around while she shopped, and we totally indulged in chinese for dinner and it was GREAT!   Saturday we spent the day with Chris's family and went to the zoo. The kids had a GREAT time and afterwards we came home and grilled food for dinner. 
Movement: Yes, love it!
Food cravings:   I still love seafood alfredo!  Chocolate ( cookies etc.) 
Food aversions:  Nothing that I can think of. 
Gender:  It's a surprise! 
Names: I have a few in mind that I love but want to look for some more ideas! 
Labor Signs:  The other night after the zoo, I could tell I had totally overdone things. I was having really bad cramping and feel like I was having contractions, it was not fun!   
Symptoms:  All of the usual, lol.   Plus on my busy days I've been feeling like some swelling is coming on but nothing yet. 
Belly Button in or out? It's slowly coming out....haha
Wedding rings on or off?  Still on
Stretchmarks? Yes, from before :)
How are you feeling?  A lot better. The vitamins definitely help with being tired etc.  But having a busy day is still wiping me out by the evening time. 
What I am looking forward to:  Chris's birthday weekend, and also getting our dining room and bathroom painted.
What I miss:  Feeling rested.
Weekly Wisdom:
  Get REST! lol
Milestones:  Already 25 weeks...only 15 to go!! Ahh! 
Pregnancy Moments with Chris and others:  Once again I've had a lot of people give me sweet compliments saying how good I look.
