25 Weeks

**I held this post back because I didn't want to yell from the rooftops that we would be gone all week, but now that we are back, here is the latest update!

How far along?  25 weeks (Photo is while we were on our trip- almost 26 weeks).

How big is the baby this week?  Rutabaga. I know this is a food, but I can't say that I've ever actually seen one. It also says that he's about a pound and a half and will start gaining his baby fat and getting hair. I'm kind of hoping he gets his dad's coloring and we end up with a little blondie.

Total Weight Gain?  14 pounds. To be honest with you, I'm kind of shocked that this number isn't higher. I definitely don't share my husband's affinity for healthy food and I can't say that pregnancy has done much to change that. Give me carbs and cheese all. day. long. and I'm a happy girl. 

Maternity Clothes? Yes. I luckily started packing for our trip early which was a little challenging since everything I've worn up to this point has been layers and winter clothes. And shorts of any type- especially draw string- are IMPOSSIBLE to find in early February. Thank goodness for girlfriends that are my size.

Best Moment of the Week?  Finally getting the nursery cleaned out! That room has been our dirty little secret of the house since we moved in. We stuffed all the boxes we didn't want to deal with in there and happily shut the door behind us.  That was great until we found out we had a baby on the way and would have to deal with it sooner rather than later. Being at the starting line instead of far behind it is a good feeling!

And non-baby related, celebrating my birthday with my sweet parents before we left for our trip.  We had a wonderful dinner at Jaspers. I have dreams about their gouda mac n cheese. Mmm....

Trouble Sleeping?  I've started having some pretty weird dreams and last night Den woke me up laughing in his sleep- literally, laughing out loud at some joke he dreamt. I couldn't get mad because it was pretty funny in itself.

Miss Anything?  Wine. I doubt the answer to this question will change for the duration.

Movement?  Mostly in the evenings. Although he will give my bladder a sharp jab every now and then during the day. Everyone talks about "flutters" but this kid feels more like a ninja. 

Food Cravings? I finally got my donut! Den went out and got some for me last weekend. Some more of that gouda mac n cheese also sounds pretty good right about now.

Belly Button - In or Out?  In. 

Symptoms? Just hungry pretty much all the time.

Wedding Ring - Off or on? On

Happy or Moody?  Happy for the most part. A little moody today, but happy in general.

Looking Forward to?  I know I said this last week, but laying on the beach for a week with nothing to do but drink faux pina coladas and get some sun on my enormous white belly.  I tried on a bikini this week and came out and asked Den "Do I look like a whale?" to which he responded "No, you look like a skinny girl who's pregnant." Smart man. Let's be honest- there was only one correct answer to that question regardless.
