Week 25

Week 25 Belly Update - The Not So Desperate Chef Wife

How big is baby? The size of a cauliflower!  

Baby Development FYI:  During month six, the average fetus measures about 13.6 inches to 14.8 inches and weighs about 1.5 to 2.5 pounds.  She’s enjoying her new sense of equilibrium — she now knows which way is up and which is down.  She’s growing more fat and more hair too!

My body has been invaded, how’s that going?  Moving a little slower, huffing and puffing a little more, stiff, achy, leg cramps, the pressure in my lower belly is building, feeling huge.  I pay for it if I stand too long, sit too long, or do too much during the day.  The baby movements continue to get stronger.  The other day I felt it “thump” and it made me jump because for a second I had forgotten about the little booger in there!

What’s been on my mind?  Getting everything ready!  What all we MUST have and rearranging things around the house to make room.  Need to choose a pediatrician and decide whose insurance we will have the baby on.  And this is the first week that I’ve felt…huge!

Crazy Cravings:  Nothing in particular, but my appetite has increased again.  Everything tastes good haha!

Highlights:  We start our Labor and Birth Class next week, and we are actually looking forward to it.  We know realize that every delivery is different and it is near impossible to plan how it is going to happen, but the classes should be entertaining at the least.  Nate already brought up the embarrassing point of “what if you are doing  a breathing exercise and accidentally fart?!”  Gotta love the way boys think!
