25 Weeks Down, 15 More To Go!

25 Week Bump Board 

I sit here giggling as I hear Matt chase around Brayden and tell him to get down off things in the other room. It feels nice to know that my stressful moments are shared. Brayden has been a little monster lately. For some reason he is on strike against all forms of sleep during the day and night. He also realized that when he doesn't get his way the proper way to deal with it is to kick and scream.  Not only does he want to eat everything he is not suppose to he has an obsession with anything that belongs to the dog. Dear lord my son thinks he is a dog! I promise I am kidding when I say this but I can't be the only parent digging dog food out of my soon to be toddlers mouth and removing raw hides from wondering hands. Lets face it, they made them so darn cute so they are easy to forgive. 

Highlights and lowlights of my pregnancy week 24-25

I actually had a scare this past week the day after Christmas. On Christmas day I had experienced some cramping but wrote it off as just regular cramps from eating to much food and being on the run all day (we had 4 different Christmas' we went to).  I woke up in the middle of the night from the pains being more severe throughout my whole stomach not just where period cramps would be located. I figured baby girl was just stretching out and it was round ligament pains because I have been doubling in size the past few weeks. The cramping continued to come on and off the whole next day to the point where I felt like I was going to throw up from the pain. Turns out my body was dehydrated and over worked which all resulted in contractions. Thankfully after taking a warm bath to relax and drinking tons of water I have felt amazing since. I am now determined to stay hydrated and not over stress myself as much. Easier said than done. Other than peeing twice an hour and every time I touch or hear water things have been pretty easy. I still have the random pelvis popping when I go to roll over in bed or stand up but nothing too serious. 

This week's big developments:  Your baby is beginning to exchange her long, lean look for some baby fat. As she does, her wrinkled skin will begin to smooth out and she'll start to look more and more like a newborn. She's also growing more hair — and if you could see it, you'd now be able to discern its color and texture.

How Far Along:  25 weeks

Weight Gain/Loss:  +9.2 lbs.
Sleep:  Don't even get me started on sleep. It's a thing of the past. I have accepted this. 
Best Moment This Week: This morning I woke up to Elena kicking so I pulled up my shirt and could actually see my belly jiggle and bulge as she moved around! 
Movement: All the time! I love it. 
Food Cravings/Aversions: Pineapple, cantaloupe, strawberries, bananas, yogurt, orange juice and chocolate. Anything sweet you name it and I'll eat it! *this remains the same* 
What I Miss: I have to say I was a little bumped to see everyone have fun and sip drinks over the holidays. This is my second year in a row that I feel like Matt was afraid to go have fun because I couldn't. I hate feeling like the buzz killer. 
Stretch Marks:  No new ones yet. 
Belly Button:  Looks like it's popping!! 
Rings:  Still loose! 
Mood: I have been happy, slightly silly but easily angered. 
Labor SignsCramps, pelvis pain and Braxton Hicks!
Upcoming Appointments/Events: Mid January I have another doctor appointment where I think is the glucose syrup if I am remembering correctly. My current doctor I have had thus far is a bit old school and doesn't even tell me much. I have been waiting patiently for my Mid Wife who delivered Brayden to transfer to New York and become my OBGYN/Midwife once again which she said was January so that's really exciting!  
What I look forward to: Having my midwife back, Brayden's first Christmas, moving into our house, My "baby sprinkle", Brayden's first birthday and the birth of my baby girl. Oh and our wedding in October!!! Busy as always. 
Weekly Wisdom:  If you have to pee, GO. Don't hold it and risk sneezing!

Starting weight 119lb - Starting waist measurement 31in. 

I am now 128.2 lbs and 36.5 in. 

I hope you all have an amazing 2014!
