25 weeks...look I'm on time ;)
How far along: 25 weeks today!
How big is baby Jaden: approx. 9 in and 1lb 8oz to 1lb 10oz....
Sex differentiation is completed. The testes have dropped into the scrotum. Permanent teeth are developing in buds. He is more dextrous and can move his little fingers to make a fist. A preference of left or right handedness is developing. Fingerprints are also developing.
Weight gain: 22 lbs. I'm not sure why I'm gaining so much weight already, I don't think I'm eating that much more. I'm eating pretty healthy...lots of fruit, cereal, veggies, and such. I've limited my ice cream to once or twice a week! Then I keep hearing about Dr's telling their patients who have gained much less than me that they are gaining too much weight?! Yikes. From what I've read recently between 25-35 lbs is recommended. I've been trying to go to the pool when the weather cooperates and I'm off from school to swim a little...but I can't do a whole lot outside because it's been too hot! I have another 15 weeks to go so I guess I'm going to have to be even more careful! :(
Maternity clothes: Definitely necessary and yes, I still need to buy them...
Sleep: Last night the preggo insomnia struck again! I was up almost all night. I'm amazed I'm functioning as well as I am. Luckily I'll be well prepared when our little boy gets here for those all night feedings/diaper changes.
Best moment of the week: hmmm....well, the bedding is on its way and I was able to get it on clearance (YAY!) that was pretty sweet! So now I'll be able to put finishing touches on the nursery over the next 15 weeks! I really need to start getting organized and stocking up on the reusable diapers and such. Buy the diaper bag and start planning the hospital bag. Oh and finally get around to buying those maternity clothes! A friend of ours is going to help us do some maternity shots at around 30 weeks, so I am getting pretty excited about that! :)
Foods I love: pretty much the same.
Foods I hate: also the same.
Movement: Definitely...but he's a mellow little guy for the most part....and every once in a while he turns into a little jumping bean. I'll get some nice kicks to the bladder, especially if I sit for a long time (as in class for example...apparently he doesn't like that too much).
Belly button: All I can say is look at the picture! That glowing white thing poking out....that's my former innie!!!!
Morning Sicknes: Not so much....heartburn, achy feet and pelvis....lots!
