25 Weeks

So I have been a horrible blogger, but I know this will come as a shock to some of you but being pregnant and housing this baby has not been the biggest thing going on in my life. Actually there have been times in the last 6 weeks where I forgot I was pregnant, or was too stressed and busy to think about being pregnant. Life has been really stressful lately, for reasons we don't need to get into here. But it's been a rough few weeks and I am just starting to climb out of it. So maybe this can be the start of some more regular posting.

25 weeks

How far along? 25weeks.... where in the world has the time gone!!

Total weight gain/loss: up 7lbs.... in the time since my last post I lost ALL of my hard earned 4lbs and was back to my pre-pregnancy weight. So I am pretty proud of my 7lbs since as of 23 weeks I was at 0.

Sleep: nothing like it used to be. When I'm not getting up 1-3 times a night to pee I am tossing and turning and repositioning all my pillows.

Best moment this week: My first of 4 baby showers!

Movement: A ton. John is even feeling the kicking and moving now which is so exciting.

Food cravings: I just like food.

Gender: I am leaning towards boy but who knows

Labor Signs: I had a few cramps the other night after a particularly hard day at work

Belly Button in or out? In but we are losing ground fast, it is getting awfully shallow. I really hope it doesn't become an outtie.

What I miss: sleep! And I know I am going to be missing it for a lot longer.

What I am looking forward to: I have another baby shower at the end of the month and two in November. And I am looking forward to our crib coming in another week or so.

Weekly Wisdom: I can't think of anything right now
Milestones: Past the point of viability!! Maybe only nurses think like this

19 weeks

* I have been slacking, but so have you commentors :) I will try to get a picture up here soon*

How far along? 19 weeks
Total weight gain/loss: up 4lbs.... woot woot!!
Sleep: Ugh horrible, I feel like all I do is toss and turn and I can't get comfortable
Best moment this week: this is a tie between feeling Little Beans first kicks and getting a beautiful report at our anatomic scan
Movement: Started at 18 weeks with flutters and movement and then the night before our ultrasound I felt my first kicks, it was the greatest thing ever
Food cravings: nothing lately, mashed potatoes if I had to name something
Gender: I am leaning towards boy, hubs was on team girl until the us and then switched teams... we aren't finding out and stayed strong through the US when she asked us if we wanted to find out.
Labor Signs: None.
Belly Button in or out? In
What I miss: bending over without a big bulge in the way
What I am looking forward to: Registering tomorrow!!
Weekly Wisdom: Take your pre pregnancy weight and add 30lbs and then get that number stuck in your head, it will make the weight loss less shocking
Milestones: Our baby passed the anatomical scan with flying colors, all his/her parts look great!!

Big anatomical scan/us tomorrow morning, please pray! We still aren't going to find out what Little Bean is. I am just so worried about the scan tomorrow and all the things it could show. So pray for peace and for there Little Bean to be healthy and growing, updates tomorrow!

I had my first comment from a stranger today!! I was buying some Christmas scrapbooking paper at AC Moore and the woman at the register said "Oh look how far ahead you are with your scrapbooking!" I said, "more like how far behind I am, I am hoping the new paper inspires me" and her response was "well it looks like soon you'll be busy with new things to scrapbook"
Not that soon lady, haha. My husband said its probably because I am so tiny everywhere else that she was gutsy enough to say something.

I had lunch today with a friend who spoiled me rotten with all kinds of baby presents!! :)

14 weeks

So I'm a week behind, cut me some slack I'm pregnant!
The bump pretty much gets noticed and greeted everywhere we go now. I guess if you didn't know me you'd just think I was a little pudgey but everyone else is pretty over the moon about the buldge.
How far along? 14 weeks
Total weight gain/loss: down 1-2 depending on am or pm weight
Sleep: Still pretty exhausted but made it through more than 50% of my days without a single nap so I must be feeling better
Best moment this week: The ultrasound!
Movement: We saw a TON of movement on the U/S so I am sure I am in for some fun once I can start feeling it
Food cravings: nothing really stands out
Gender: no idea although an old lady from our church is convinced its a girl
Labor Signs: None.
Belly Button in or out? In
What I miss: Sleeping on my belly :(
What I am looking forward to: buying some maternity clothes, my tank tops are getting pretty short these days
Weekly Wisdom: The exhaustion never really goes away
Milestones: Making it through a whole day without a nap :)

12-13 weeks

This is my 12 week picture even though I am now 14 weeks I am a little behind. And the reason being that week 13 and 14 have looked very similar to weeks 6-9. I haven't been puking but the nausea is back full force and the hip and leg pain is something fierce at night. My dr said at my last appt that it sounded like siatica (sp?) but that it was pretty early for that. I am still waiting for my second trimester surge of energy and such to come along. Right now I am still super exhausted and feel pretty much like the first trimester.

We go today for another ultrasound. The one that they rescheduled and rescheduled over a month ago. I'll let you know how that goes.

I'll do this for weeks 12 and 13 and I'll try to get a 14 wk picture up here soon

How far along? 13 weeks
Total weight gain/loss: down 2lbs
Maternity clothes? still just my bella band and this e-band I got that just goes right over your jean button and snaps, I love it!
Stretch marks? No thank goodness
Sleep: I can't get enough of it
Best moment this week: Having a random stranger ask if I'm pregnant
Movement: not yet
Food cravings:
Gender: no idea
Labor Signs: None
Belly Button in or out? In, lets hope it stays there
What I miss: Still energy.
What I am looking forward to: That second trimester burst of energy everyone keeps telling me is coming
Weekly Wisdom: Eat what sounds good
Milestones: Making it to my second trimester

How are all you other Mama's doing out there?
