Estimated Due Date: May 14th, 2013
How far along: 25 weeks
How big is the baby: Babycenter says he is approximately 13.5 inches long and 1.5 lbs.
Total weight gain: I think I'm up to about 18 or 19 lbs now. My scale at home gives me lower numbers than the one at the doctor, but I have only been on monthly appointments up to now, so I try to average the numbers together. I start 3-week appointments on February 11.
Sleep: Same as last time - I will often wake up after 4 or 5 hours, and simply be unable to sleep anymore. However, when I stay asleep for longer stretches, not much wakes me up.
Maternity Clothes: I am completely in maternity clothing now, and have been for a few weeks. And I have to say - it's not that bad! The jeans are uber-comfy, and I love empire waist shirts (always have!).
Best moments so far: It's a tie... I love communicating with Nuggey (I poke back when he kicks or punches, and we play with each other like that.); however, I have been bonding with hubs over fun things (like baby clothes) and serious things (like all the impending changes to our life). This is a whole new level to our relationship that I never knew existed. ♥
Food cravings: Still craving carbs - pasta and potatoes. Cereal. Dairy - eggs, cheese, milk. I wished I craved veggies and fruit. The only healthy thing I crave is grapes.
Food aversions: Nothing anymore! I am back to drinking coffee (decaf only), and I haven't felt nauseous from food in a LONG time.
Movement: Most often when I am sitting at my desk at work... Still true! If I get deep into my work and start slouching, he reminds me with a sharp punch. I also feel him rolling over and getting comfy when I am settling into bed.
Gender: It's a boy!!
What I miss: Wine! And sushi. I made hubby promise that we will get some on the way home from the hospital.
What I’m looking forward to: Snuggling with him. I can't wait to have him in my arms! ♥
