How far along: 25 Weeks
How big is baby: From the Bump - The size of a cauliflower. From Everyday Family - Measuring about 13 inches long, he weighs approximately 1 1/2 lbs. In the coming weeks, your baby will continue to grow and mature at a fast rate, gaining some baby fat and filling out his long, lean frame. As he gains weight, his skin begins to become less wrinkled and he begins to look more, and more like a newborn. Also, his skin is finally gaining some color. His hands are fully developed by this week, fingerprints and all! And at 25 weeks, the structure of the spine is beginning to form.
Weight gain/loss: Up 2.3 pounds this week for a total of 16.3 pounds gained.
Stretch marks: Lone Sal has 2 friends that are starting to show up. Next week they'll probably be there in full force.
Sleep: Eh. I'm definitely starting to feel more tired. I think I'm usually in bed between 9 and 10, but still feel like I could sleep for hours. Sleeping in is a total joke though and I can't ever do it. If I'm not passed out cold then sleep is crap. It's pretty much 50/50 between the too. I did have a night that sleep just totally sucked and Frijole pretty much kicked me all night long.
Diet/Cravings/Aversions: Nothing special. I did eat too many sweets and gave myself a stomach ache over the weekend. I can tell that I can't really eat as much as I could once again though.
Movement: Lots of kicks now. I even felt some under my ribs the other day. FUN. We also discovered Frijole is a fan of Iron Man. We saw the third installment on Friday and baby boy kicked and moved the whole time.
What I'm loving: All the, "oh you just look miserable looks" I'm getting. Yeah. 15 weeks to go people!
Symptoms: I'm still getting a bloody nose about once a week or so. I also discovered 3 freckles that have become moles. Yeah. That was a fun thing to learn about!
How I'm feeling: Overall pretty good. That's why I think it's hilarious that so many people lately have been giving me the "oh you poor thing" or "any minute now" looks. I'm not huge or anything, and granted I look tired every now and then, but really? I do find that I can get winded a little easier than in the past. It's time to learn my new limits is all.
