Date wise, I am actually wrapping up my 25th week today. So crazy! I begin a new pregnancy week every Friday. My bump has majorly grown in just the past 10 days, but I'll save that post for week 25.
But...catching up from 23 and 24 weeks. If I can remember. Preggos brain really does exist.
These photos aren't the greatest. I keep forgetting to get husband to snap the 'posed preggos pics' (they are so awkward). These are iphone pics I often snap before or after work to send to my mom & sister- the babe's biggest fans.
How far along? This pic was taken at 23 weeks, 3 days
Baby Size: A mango..1.5 LB! 8 inches tall.
Total weight gain/loss: Not sure. I got an email saying "This week marks the beginning of some serious weight gain for the baby. Your baby's weight in the next four weeks alone should double (and you may feel as though yours is too"
Maternity clothes? This dress is non-maternity and comfortable, but my tights are definitely tight & uncomfortable.
Stretch marks? Not yet.
Sleep: Yes. Still one potty trip and pillow switch up but getting plenty of zzz's.
Best moment this week: Getting our Christmas Tree and talking about how different Christmas will be this time next year
Miss Anything? Nothing of big notice
Movement: Lots of flutters before bedtime.
Food cravings: Savory. Cereal, French Toast, Sweet Tea
Aversions/Anything making you queasy or sick: Still no interest in coffee
Have you started to show yet: I should just delete this question.
And 24 weeks...
How far along? This pic was taken at 24 weeks, 4 days
Baby Size: 1.5 lbs. Picture an ear of corn crown-to-rump with a fully formed face. Amazing! Per the emails, the babe is gaining 6oz a week.
Total weight gain/loss: Doc on Wednesday, can't wait
scared to see.
Maternity clothes? This dress is non maternity but comfortable because it's stretchy. I wore non-maternity pants to work yesterday and let's just say a safety pin and half zipper were involved! Just placed a maternity online order. #overdueStretch marks? No. And still not using any creams. Need to look into this pronto.
Sleep: Yes. Still one potty trip around 3-4am.
Best moment this week: Going to NYC this past weekend and getting to see my sister and show her the bump in real life! I swear the bump grew more and more while we were there. We laughed as every morning I woke up bigger & bigger. Also, our crib was delivered! My MIL gave it to us for Christmas. It's in the basement for now as the nursery is still bare, but it was exciting to receive our first big baby gift.
Miss Anything? Booze in the big city! NYC is so vibrant and fun & really made me miss indulging in the drinks and atmosphere.
Movement: Nervous nelly here didn't feel any movement for a few days so I called the doc and while she told me not to worry, she recommended I come in to hear the heartbeat just for ease of mind. Within 3 seconds, the baby's heart beat was racing away and she/he even gave us a few kicks for show!
Food cravings: I way over induleged in lots of food and desserts to make up for missing out on the cocktails.
Aversions/Anything making you queasy or sick: NYC is general smells bad!
