25 Week Bumpdate

What I'm wearing:
Shirt and leggings- Liz Lange for Target
Cardigan- Target
Am I the only momma to be who finds taking these weekly pictures awkward? I guess because its usually 9 at night, I'm exhausted and my husband has zero patience. I always look so uncomfortable. I never know how to stand. It's just strange for me...

But moving on... 

How Far Along: 25 weeks and 4 days

Baby is the size of: Baby G is the size of cauliflower! Baby should be about 15. to 2.5 pounds. 

Total Weight Gain: I've hit 18 pounds. 

Sleep: Is pretty good. I've had some issues with leg cramps and some pulled muscles that make it very hard to move.  

Best Moment of the week:

* Lots of movement and it happens all the time!

* Our baby's dresser is so close to being finished. It looks so beautiful. 

Worst Moment of the Week: 
* Work was exhausting. 

* I had to call the doctor on Saturday because I was having terrible pains in my stomach. Luckily, he believed it was a muscle strain as I had no other symptoms but I am in some real pain. I've had such a great pregnancy I hate to complain about anything but I am feeling pretty sore for the past few days. 

* Saturday I was told to rest more and stop bending and moving as much as I have been. This is very difficult for me. I hate having other people to everything for me. It's been painful. 

Miss Anything: 
* Being able to shave my legs and paint my toes with out difficulty

Food Cravings: SUGAR!!! It's terrible but its all I've wanted. 

Anything make you queasy: Nope

Have you started to show? Oh boy I have but everyone says I'm carrying so small. 

Gender: Surprise baby!!! Everyone had been guessing boy but some people are changing to girl lately. 

Symptoms: Muscle strain in my abdomen and it hurts!!! Flat, swollen feet. I actually think they have grown because my shoes are so very tight. 

Workouts: I've been doing some walking but not much else. 

Mood: I had a really rough week at work. It was exhausting. I put a lot of extra hours in. It just knocked me out. 

Looking forward to: My best friend's wedding on Saturday and our baby shower in 2 weeks!

Maternity Clothes: A good mix of maternity pants and non maternity tops! 

Stretchmarks: Nothing yet. I've been using Mama Bee by Burt's Bees religiously. 

Rings on or off? Both are still on.

Bellybutton in or out? Still in.

This week I: 
*  Enjoyed the cooler weather. 

*  Bought a couple of potential shower outfits. 

*  Am stressing about her glucose test next week. 

Baby Update: 

* Baby is bouncing around like a crazy person.

* Baby thinks soccer practice starts at 3am. Good times. 

Momma Update:

* Mommy  is swollen. 

* Mommy  is having a difficult time bending over.

Haha yea..posting for the bump pictures are awful. I feel like we've gotten a "system" down...but yea..half the time it's the night before I have to write my post at like 10:00 and I drag Chris downstairs to take pictures for me....on the plus side, his picture taking skills have improved! Just try a bunch of different poses and then you'll start to pick up on which ones you like best. Looking good! Hope this week of work is better for you.
