How far along? 25 weeks
Size of baby: 1.5 pounds and 13.5 inches. About the size of a zucchini
Weight gain: 13 lbs. Must slow down on the weight gain. Doctor didn't say anything but I was hoping to stay around 20-25 lbs by the end of the pregnancy.
Maternity clothes: Been wearing a couple maternity tank tops and maternity jeans since it's been cooler this week.
Stretch marks: Not that I can see
Sleep: Not bad. Just up to pee 2-3 times a night.
Symptoms: Heartburn here and there and allergies off and on but other then that, been feeling great!
Best moment this week: Hearing your heartbeat today (she didn't tell me what it was) and doing the gestational diabetes test this morning...which I failed and am totally bummed about. Doing a separate post on that later today. We also painted her dresser this weekend and I got a big shipment of headbands for her in the mail today. Bring on the bows!
Movement: Morning, noon and night. Love watching my belly move and putting my hand on there so I can feel her kicking. She has had the hiccups a couple times too.
Food cravings: Ugh don't even get me started on this! I blame this gestational diabetes 100% on Collins. I have never been a huge sweets fan until I got pregnant and now I want it allll the time. I am too embarrassed to tell what I ate yesterday but I guarantee that's why I failed my test this morning.
Gender: GIRL!!!! Collins Cate Lorson
What I miss: I miss candy already and it's only been since last night!
Milestones: Well I wish I could say I passed the diabetes test but I'll be going in for the long 3 hour testing on Friday. Please pray I pass it!
