How Far Along: 25 Weeks*
Size of Baby: Rutabaga
Weight Gain: 16 pounds
Movement: Her movements have become more and more consistent and I love the way she dances in my belly. I find that she is much more active in the evenings, though she moves plenty if I sit in a way that restricts the space she has to dance and move. I like to think that it’s her way of being a bit sassy and telling me to get with the program and shift to a different position.
Cravings: Nothing specific, but if you start talking about certain foods that I like I’ll need to eat them. Immediately.
Food Aversions: Still eggs. And the smell of ground beef as it cooks makes me feel vomitous.
Symptoms: Still a bit of heartburn, and I’ve noticed that my balance is a bit off. My center of gravity is obviously changing and and it actually feels a bit bizarre! Also, my feet suddenly seem to be impossible to reach. I am at war with shoe laces and avoid them at all cost. haha
Baby Prep: The house is still slowly being filled up with stuff! I finally moved everything out of my living room and am slowly sorting it out in the spare room until we have the nursery ready. In order to make some space in there the Hubster set up our bassinet in our bedroom, and things are really starting to feel real! It’s hard to believe that in just over three months our little girl will be sleeping (or not sleeping… ha) in there.
We’ve been asked by a few people about whether or not we’ve registered anywhere for the things we still need, and we haven’t made it that far… yet. The idea of a baby registry feels a bit weird to me, but I’ve been told it’s nice so people know what we’re looking for. Thoughts?
Random News: We haven’t yet decided on a name, but there are two that we love and keep tossing back and forth. I don’t think I’ll be able to decide until I meet her. Both are older, uncommon names and I love both of them. I guess I just feel like they each suit a specific personality, and I won’t know which one fits until I see her.
I also feel like time is flying. I have 15(ish) weeks left in my pregnancy. FIFTEEN. How did this happen? I’m almost 6 months pregnant and am just shy of my third trimester.
…didn’t I just find out that I was pregnant yesterday?
I know time flys!!! it’s crazy! :) You look great! The registry feels weird at first but then you will get soo many people telling you to put more things on it so they have variety to choose from, that’s what happened to me. Doesn’t hurt to just put all the things you would want, and if you get it, then awesome! :)
Time is certainly flying by! You look gorgeous and I am glad to hear the the preparations are coming along. I think the registry is a good idea. That way you get things you want/need/will use and people feel good about knowing exactly what to get you. Since I don’t have children, I am always eternally grateful for registries. Otherwise I would be lost and just buying cute onesies when I know there are other things new parents need.
