25 Weeks - Pregnancy #4
Each Monday, I'd like to do a highlights post, including a picture, summarizing the differences in my pregnancy from week to week. I totally "grabbed" this idea from Kelly. I've done this with my three previous pregnancies (you can go to the search box and type in "pregnancy," or "week #" if you're interested in how my previous pregnancies progressed), as well, and I still think it is a great way to jot down the things that I don't want to forget later on.
How far along: 25 weeks
Size of baby: This little one is 13 1/2 inches long (head to toe) about the weight of a rutabaga.
Total weight gain/loss: I'm up 14 pounds total as of my last appointment on Friday.
Maternity clothes: spaghetti strap shirts, loose skirts or summery dresses, and cute/comfy shorts
Gender: boy :) 💙
Movement: lots of little kicks here and there
Sleep: Sleep has been fine; although my body won't let me sleep any later than 6:45. Ever.
What I miss: Lying on my back and then getting up without having to roll to the side and prop myself up first
Cravings: pizza, vanilla protein shakes with frozen strawberries
Symptoms: tightness in my lower back muscles, into my rear end and hips 😂
Exercise: I only walked once this week since my kids have been sick. I've tried to do yoga more often to relieve the tightness in my hips, and it's helped a lot each evening before bed.
