25 weeks!

How Far Along? 25 weeks

Weight Gain? I'm really starting to not like this question...stupid scale.

Maternity Clothes? Time to go all maternity!  But need to find time to go shopping for that to happen.  I think I just need a couple more pairs of pants for work, and one more pair of jeans and I should be all set.

Symptoms? Baby is getting bigger, so there is definitely less and less room for my bladder.
Movement? LOTS!  And its glorious!  We can even see him moving from the outside now.  I'm so glad that he loves to move so much.  Going through IVF makes you a little more paranoid than usual, so the constant reminder that all is good is great.
Sleep? Still pretty good.  Only getting up once or twice a night.  Getting in and out of bed is a little bit trickier but still good.
Food Cravings? Still desserts but I'm controlling my cravings better.

Best Moment of the Week? I'm going to say it's going to be tomorrow at 6ish pm.  Then I'll start my four day weekend....so excited!
Gender?  BOY!

What I Miss? Really truly....not much at all.  Being pregnant is such a gift and I don't know if everyone out there really realizes that.  So I make sure to soak in each day because I only get 9 months.

What I'm Looking Forward To?  Getting peanut's blanket done.  I've completed the crib skirt, now I just need to do the blanket.

Weekly Wisdom?  Listen to your body, it usually knows best.  I.e. working 55 hours in a week isn't always the best...so then you need to take lots of naps over the weekend.
Appointments? Monthly Dr's appointment is next Tuesday....I hope they do another ultrasound.
