How far along? 25 weeks and 0 days
Baby’s Size: 13 1/2 inches
Baby’s Weight: 1 1/2 pounds
Development: Baby's hands are fully developed and his sense of touch is developing, so he explores my uterus by groping around. Baby's nostrils have cleared out and he is breathing through his nose. His skin is starting to turn pink.
Weight gain/loss: The scale says I'm down 1 1/2 pounds from last week. I'm really happy about that, since I am still reeling from the week I gained 6 pounds. I'm up 17.5 pounds so far.
Maternity clothes? I'm now able to fill out the maternity tops with the side ruching. My husband loves the way my bump looks in them!
Best moment this week? I scored a box of 180 diapers on Amazon for $1.84! (using Amazon mom discount, subscription discount, two 20% off coupons, and a $10 off coupon)
Symptoms: Stuffy nose & congestion, nosebleeds, back pain, daily baby kicks, frequent urination, swollen boobs
Food cravings: Fruit and chocolate
What I'm looking forward to: Maternity leave...still 2 1/2 months away. Blah.
Milestones: This week a parent of one of my students asked if she could touch my belly. I caved and said yes...This is the first time an adult other than my husband touched my belly.
What my baby and I look like this week:
