25 Weeks Pregnant

I'll add my chalkboard picture on Friday once Mike can take it! :)

How far along? 25 Weeks - Vincent is the size of a rutabaga
Total weight gain/measurements: I've been gaining about a pound a week for the last few weeks! I have hit 150 now, so I'm just three pounds away from my pre-pregnancy weight. :)
Maternity clothes: Same as last week. 
Stretch marks? Not yet
Sleep: Sleep has been horrible this week. I've been having constant round ligament pain, so it makes it difficult to get comfortable and actually fall asleep.  
Best moment this week: Hearing Vince roundhouse kick the fetal monitor. xD 
Miss anything?: Mike!! He left Monday for training in Tulsa and will be back Friday. I hate it when we're apart!
Movement: Lots of movement this week! And some of the kicking has turned into sliding, now that he is getting bigger. It's so strange to feel him roll over - it makes me feel like I'm on a roller coaster!
Food cravings: Nothing this week.
Anything making you queasy or sick? I have not been feeling very good this week. Last night I was throwing up and was finally just able to down a piece of buttered toast. I really can't wait until March. I want to meet my son and be done with the morning sickness. I never would have thought I'd still be dealing with it this late in pregnancy! 
Gender: Boy :)
Labor signs: No - I think I still may be getting Braxton Hicks on and off though. 
Symptoms: Strong round ligament pain. On Friday, I woke up to a very sharp, stabbing pain in the lower right area of my abdomen. It was so incredibly painful. It went away a few hours later. The next day, it came back so strong, I was about ready to head to the ER. I then went to empty my bladder and it just went away! Had it again all day Sunday and into Monday. I called the midwifery on Monday morning, and since they only had one midwife on call that day and she was at the hospital, they sent me to urgent care. Urgent care sent me to the ER and the ER sent me to labor and delivery. (!!!) I really was just hoping they'd check to see if I had another UTI or something and send me home. I felt so embarrassed sitting up there in labor and delivery at 25 weeks with cramps. Turns out between Vince's strong movement and me probably sleeping wrong the night before the pain started, my ligament was strained. So it's nothing major. I was glad they sent me on my way after that. Good grief.
So my symptoms this week have been ligament pain, tailbone pain, braxton hicks and morning sickness. 
Belly button in or out? Halfway out when I'm standing haha
Happy or moody most of the time: I've been a bit moody this week since there has been a lot going on, but very happy about Mike's job and that Vincent is growing and doing well!  
Looking forward to: Mike coming home on Friday! :D I'd be looking forward to my next appointment a week from today, but honestly, I'm dreading it a bit, since I'll be doing my 1 hour glucose test and getting my Rh shot!

  1. I'm Rh negative too! I was spazzing out about it but it was no big deal. The glucose thing, ugh. nasty, hated it. Good luck with that lol but yay for progress!

    1. Oh really? I had never even heard anything about being Rh negative before my midwife told me at my second appointment! I'm not worried about the shot, but I am worried about the glucose test! I'm so afraid of throwing up the drink! Haha - I'll have to make sure and stick a couple empty plastic bags in my purse! xD
