How far along: 25 weeks
Baby Size: cauliflower...Gosh that seems so big...and yet he's got SO much more growing to do!
Maternity clothes: Not yet - I think I'll invest in a belly band though this weekend so I have more jeans/shorts options.
Stretch marks: Not yet...that I've noticed - still super deligent about slathering my belly with Burt's Bee Mama Belly Butter after every shower
Sleep: It's been better...I'll leave it at that
Gender: A lil' momma's boy
Movement: Yup - more and more these days...he's becoming quite the active little boy in there! It's so crazy to me to see my belly move while he's kicking and doing flips and whatever else he's doing in there. Nuts, I tell ya, nuts!!!!
Looking forward to: Our 'babymoon' in a few weeks...nothing extravagant but at least we're getting away to relax and spend some good ol' quality time together <3 We both desperately need it.
Food cravings: Cereal and marshmallow fluff...no, not together....though now that I think about it a spoonful of marshmallow fluff topped with a few Fruit Loops sounds A-MA-ZING!!!
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope and very thankful for that
Labor Signs: No, thank heavens!
What I miss: running...and feeling like my normal self...wine...sushi...walking comfortably...having a waist/abs...yeah, the list goes on...and on...and on...and on...
Symptoms: Got me a case of SPD we think - so that's been a real joy the last few days. I've got my first PT appointment Friday morning and I've been resting and icing lots and it seems to be getting slightly better each day. Other than that, still lots of pressure/spasms because he's so low (according to the doctor he's basically using the 2 ligaments in my lower abs/pubic area as a hammock - just chillin' and growin' making this mommma-to-be super uncomfortable!) and lots of stretching going on.
Nursery: Nothing new here - though we did look at cribs and dressers this past weekend, which I hope means we actually pull the trigger SOON and buy something
Belly Button in or out? In and still have my belly button ring in
Wedding rings on or off? On
Workouts: HA! I have snuck in a little elliptical time because it actually felt good and I know I gotta keep my body moving. I am hoping after Friday's PT appointment I'll get the OK to work out more - even though I'm pretty sure running won't be part of that work out routine until after I give birth (TOUGH for me to swallow not gonna lie!) But I'm keepin' my fingers crossed that if I allow myself to heal properly that MAYBE, just MAYBE, I will be allowed one or two short, slow runs a week!!!
Things that suck: SPD and thus currently not running...'nough said...
Things that don't suck: walks around the neighborhood with the hubs...Oh, and eggless chocolate chip cookie dough...seriously, a pregnant girl's dream come true!
