Kylie Says

"No way, Jose!"

To me as I'm trying to get her into her carseat. She must have picked that up at school because neither Rex or I say that. Silly kid.

25 Weeks

How far along? 
25 weeks 5 days

How big is baby? Approximately 1 1/2 pounds and 12" long

Total weight gain/loss? 12 pounds

Maternity clothes?  Yep. I was wearing a lot of my regular shirts but now my belly is getting too big, so I am mainly in maternity clothes. And I am in love with my secret fit maternity skinny jeans from Motherhood Maternity. They are soooooo comfy and they stay put on my waist! 

Stretch marks? Nope.

Sleep? Pretty good. I've been a lot better about going to bed earlier and that has helped a lot! And right now I'm only getting up once a night to pee since thankfully little man has moved up off of my bladder.

Movement? All the time! Baby Seth is a moving and grooving little man. It seriously feels like he is doing barrel rolls half the time.

Food cravings? Still milk. And carbs. Any carbs. Bread, pasta, cookies, cereal, any of them. Which is probably why my weight gain took a huge leap. 

Gender? Boy

Labor Signs? Nada

Belly Button in or out? Out. Boo.

What I miss? Energy. Not having to pee every hour.

What I am looking forward to? Having Kylie feel him kick. Rex has felt him move a lot but every time I try to have Kylie feel him move he stops! All ready practicing his little brother antics.

Best moment this week? Sleeping in until 9:30 am on Saturday. Seriously. Kylie and the chihuahuas usually have me up by 7:30 am on weekends so this was a pleasant surprise.

Milestones? Only 100 days to go!

22 Weeks

So baby Seth wants to be a giant apparently. At my 20 week ultrasound they estimated him already weighing a whole pound! He's in the 83rd percentile. Hopefully he slows down a little bit, I don't want him breaking any records or anything. Ky weighed 6 lbs 15 oz when she was born at 41 weeks so I'm hoping Seth is around the same size, I really don't want to push out a 10 pound baby! But he is happy and healthy and the doctor says he looks perfect. My placenta is where it should be and my cervix is locked down tight :) 

In unpregnancy related health news I have a sebaceous cyst on the top of my head and had to have it lanced the other day. Getting a shot on top of your head is not fun. And I have a follow up appointment next week with a possible referral to a surgeon to get the cyst removed post baby. 

How far along? 22 weeks 3 days

How big is baby? Big. 1 pound already and almost a foot long!

Total weight gain/loss? 5 pounds

Maternity clothes?  I'm 50/50 right now. My jersey maxi skirts are definitely my best friends right now. I can only comfortably button one pair of my regular jeans right now.

Stretch marks? Nope.

Sleep? Ok. I probably get up twice a night to pee since this baby has made himself at home on my bladder and hasn't moved.

Movement? Every night about 9 he starts kicking up a storm and now I am feeling him move throughout the day as well.

Food cravings? Milk. Now it's probably more like 3 gallons a week. And Oreos. Give me all of your Oreos!

Gender? Boy

Labor Signs? Nada

Belly Button in or out? In, but its getting awfully close to being out...

What I miss? Energy. Not having to pee every hour.

What I am looking forward to? Feeling him moving more and more as he gets bigger

Best moment this week? Seeing baby boy at my 20 week ultrasound last week. He was being stubborn, of course, and didn't want pictures taken of his spine.

Milestones? 20 week ultrasound
