25 Weeks

Craving - it is getting a bit ridiculous, but honestly I am craving fast food like no ones business.  My friend Kim has me hooked on the churros at Jack In The Box.  Oreo cookies and milk seem to top off each evening, ever so nicely.  I'm trying to find balance, but the baby's cravings win out every time. (I keep telling myself it's the baby).
Sleep - my acid reflux is making it a little difficult to fall asleep and I have been waking up more often, to use the bathroom.  Overall I seem to be much more comfortable this pregnancy.
Movement - this baby feels so low, sometimes I feel like she is going to fall out, so when she does move, it is a bit uncomfortable.  I can only imagine how powerful her kicks are going to become.
Missing - working out the way I used to.  I am still teaching, but cannot move the way I once did.  I have been trying to incorporate walks into my days off from teaching to make up for my fast food addiction. 
Belly Button - still in, but wonder how much more it can stretch.  P has fun playing with it.  She loves kissing my belly, but insists my shirt is up, otherwise she won't kiss it.  It makes for a good laugh, when we are in public and she tries to lift my shirt up.
Maternity Clothes - I am basically 100% in maternity clothes, but am still trying to squeeze into my old workout clothes.  I'm thinking I only have a few more weeks left, till I'm going to have to invest in some mew attire.
Stretch Marks - nope, hoping the slathering of lotion on a daily basis, will keep them from showing up.
Swelling - so far so good.  I thank my lucky stars every day.  At this point last pregnancy, I was sitting any chance I could get and was already in larger shoes.  Tyson bought me a pair of size 8 shoes, just in case my feet do swell.  I love that boy for always looking out for me.
Symptoms - the leg cramps in the middle of the night are wretched.  I notice I get them more when I have done too much throughout the day.  Tyson is a champ and wakes up to rub the pain away.  I am really starting to feel sleepy throughout the day again.  I'm really going to miss that second trimester, burst of energy.  My lower back is also starting to feel the extra weight of my uterus, but as long as I give myself little breaks, I'm good to go.
Overall Mood - feeling great!  I am so grateful my body is handling this pregnancy so much better.  I was really nervous, I was going to be in the same situation as last time.  People aren't lying when they say every pregnancy is different.
Looking forward to - my prenatal massage tomorrow!  Eeek I couldn't be more excited.  It's also an hour and a half, which I have never experienced. 
Highlight of the week - not pregnancy related at all, but our cabinets are installed in the new house and the tile is going in as I write.  Our house is one month out from the closing date!

  1. Is it sad that I know a medium Diet Coke and a 5 piece churro ends up being $3.33?? haha… I think I go there a little too often :) They are just so good though. You look fabulous!
