How Far Along: 25 Weeks
Size of baby: Eggplant (which I am allergic to, incidentally.)
Total Weight Gain/Loss: 6 pounds. So, no change. The doctor's office actually puts me at a pound less than my home scale. Last night I weighed myself to write this post and it said I had gained 12 pounds in 3 days. I panicked and asked Rob what he thought and he said, "I really only see five of those pounds." I was floored but decided to let him live. I was skeptical of the scale since I had taken it from carpet to linoleum so I re-set it. I weighed myself twice more and it confirmed I had not gained ANY weight. Well, after talking to my husband, if I didn't have a complex before...
Maternity Clothes: Mostly.
Gender: A beloved son!
Movement: Every time he kicks it reassures me he is still alive. I know that sounds awful, but it is a reality for me. I have pregnancy anxiety because: 1. It is my first pregnancy, 2. My blood thinners can potentially retard his growth and 3. The platelet issue has me crawling out of my skin.
Sleep: Is constantly interrupted.
What I miss: Being able to see my Lady Bits. This is the same from last week. I bought a specialty "tool" that I hope will help with grooming. I am obsessed with body hair, sorry if that's TMI.
Cravings: I'm a creature of habit so if you have read my blog for any length of time, you can probably answer for me, lol. I'm still on a Moose Tracks ice cream kick!
Symptoms: A protruding belly, lol. I truly love being pregnant; I have been so blessed!
Best Moment this week: The sound of his heartbeat is music to my ears!
