25 Weeks (May 22)

We actually cleaned up some stuff in the baby room so it's not as bad as it was. Maybe we'll put the crib together and buy a dresser sometime.  Ella likes to climb in the jumperoo and bounce.  This view before had about 8 big empty boxes blocking walking anywhere.  That container and bag are craft supplies for the toddler craft I did on Friday and am doing again on Thursday so I didn't put them away.
 This view still needs some work!
Here I am standing at the jumperoo.  What a baby room huh!?

My wedding rings seem tight sometimes.  I have to get a 2 hour glucose test coming up some time. I am not looking forward to that. I remember last time with the fasting + 2 hours I just wanted to pass out by the end.
Dave felt the baby kick. I was standing there and mentioned the crazy kicking. Then he went to feel it. I said he's not kicking like he was. Dave still felt it and it was barely moving compared to earlier.  This kid moves a lot.
I noticed I got a lot bigger this week. Other people are even telling me that.  My mom commented about how huge I am. Then I compared it to last time and last time I seemed bigger.
Size of baby: Zucchini, 13.6 inches long from head to heel. My app on my phone says the baby weighs about 1.5 pounds.

Total Weight Gain/Loss:  13.4 lb gain overall. I gained 0.4 in the past week. I've gained about 25% more so far this time than I gained last time!

Maternity Clothes:  I wore maternity jeans that weren't skinny jeans for the first time this pregnancy and they are rough to stay up.

Movement: I feel like there are kicks way more than with Ella. 

Sleep: Sleep has been a little better. I'm not up coughing. I'm not up as much peeing. If Ella wakes up, she goes right back to sleep with me.  I am falling asleep on my computer nightly and waking up before my alarm because that's when I have pee. 

What I miss: being able to easily bend to the ground to pick something up while I'm seated. 

Cravings: No

Aversions: No

Symptoms: Going to the bathroom a lot. I think my weird muscle cramp and hip giving out are symptoms of some sort.

Best moment this week: I don't even know. It was pretty nice not being sick.

Looking forward to:  My baby shower. Ella's birthday party.

Exercise:  I did 4 workouts this week + 7 planks or maybe 1 of those was last week since I was a day ahead for my challenge. I did yoga finally. I fast forwarded through the lie on your belly ones. I also ran 4 miles, did a 50 min bootcamp, and walked about 2 miles (I didn't track it!!!). 

Same this time: I still sleep in my elementary school shirts and last time I did too. 

Different from last time: I slept a lot more this time than last time since it was the last week of Dev Botocamp when I was 25 weeks pregnant with Ella!


  1. I felt like Parker kicked more often than Aurora ever did. Maybe it's a boy thing? I think you're just carrying differently this time around. You're definitely not huge, just cute and all baby!

    1. My mom says I never liked or moved. And Timmy did flips. But I'm not sure any other girl boy comparisons.
