How Far Along? 25 weeks
Maternity Clothes? I tried wearing a regular shirt today and it was just too short for the belly I am growing. It fit fine everywhere else, but I think I am pretty much maternity from here on out!
Weight Gain? I gained 1.5 pounds last week. Now I am 11.5 pounds total gained. I am hoping that this 1.5 to 2.0 pounds per week stretch ends soon I am not going to be able to stick to my 25 pound goal.
Stretch Marks? Not yet!
Sleep? I am doing better, but what I wouldn't give for 1 really good night of uninterrupted sleep!!!
Best Moment of the Week? Every night Avery puts on a show and kicks and rolls and moves like crazy. I really look forward to that! Ray can't get over how much she moves in there!!!
Weirdest Comment: Nothing weird.
Movement? She is moving more and more throughout the day. I guess not more, but I think she is just getting so big that I can actually feel it more.
Gender? Girl, Avery!
What I miss? Nothing, doing pretty good this week.
Symptoms: My skin is bad again this week and I think it will stay that way, since we are going into the heat and humidity.
Sleeping has been tough.
My back is starting to ache.
What I'm looking forward to? Now that the paint is up, I am ready for the furniture to get put together and for things to start looking like a nursery.
Weekly Wisdom: Put a pillow behind you as support. I LOVE sleeping on my back and I miss it sooo much, I think it is part of why I don't sleep as well. But if you put a pillow behind/under your back, so that you aren't laying flat on your back, it helps!!!!!
