The Bump: 100 Days to go

I just received an email saying '100 days to go until your due date'....I about fell out of my chair! This pregnancy is flying by.

Today I am 25 weeks & 5 days. Only 14 weeks to go. 100 days. Wow.

I know this little blog has turned into a preggos dump, but when I actually take the time to post it's only fitting I report on the babe. As mentioned, pregnancy brain really does exist and I have a pretty serious case of it, so I want to remember as much as I can. Only fitting to dump it all at LTK.

Here is the recent scoop...

25 weeks, 5 days

How far along? 25 weeks, 5 days
Baby Size: 1.5 lbs & 13 inches long. Also starting to pack on the baby fat- so cute.
Total weight gain/loss: Oh boy! We went for our 24 week last week. I gained 10lbs since the last 4 week visit, making it 20 total. I was told while the overall is right on track, the 10 since the last appt needs to slow down a bit. I wasn't kidding when I said I have indulged in all things savory...french toast, waffles, sweet tea. And it's all been oh so good. I'm going to blame it on the season- lots of Christmas parties & treats at work :) but it was a good reminder to continue eating fruits & veggies and eat the sweet stuff in moderation.
Maternity clothes? Just received a maternity order I placed last week.  So glad  to have more stretchy dresses & pants, especially for work.
Stretch marks? No.    
Sleep: Yes. Loving the pillow between the legs.
Best moment this week: Lots of movement throughout the day. It goes in spurts and when the baby moves, it moves a lot! Best feeling ever.
Worst moment this week: Failing the 1 hour glucose test. I'm hoping it was the chick fil a chicken biscuit I had the morning of (so stupid) but we'll see. Took the 3 hour test yesterday and have the heroin addict arms to show for it!
Miss Anything? All the sweet tea I've cut back on.
Movement: Lots!
Food cravings: Nothing of note. Just the usual. I feel like i've discussed a lot of food this post. Fat girl in me. While I'm eating a lot, I'm still working out at least 4 days a week on the elliptical or the treadmill.
Aversions/Anything making you queasy or sick:  All good here.
And here is a progression shot from the last few weeks...

The last pic is kind of scary how big I look!  Can't wait to see the tum in 14 more weeks at full term. Yet, still so grateful for a growing stomach & healthy baby.
