How far along: 25 weeks, 2 days
Total Weight Gain: 15 lbs
Symptoms: Constant peeing!!
Sleep: Much better this week. Hopefully it keeps going this way.
Movement: Every day, but her kicks always seem to be be very low, like her feet are determined to stay right on top of my bladder. I thought that fetuses at this stage did more flipping about, but my baby girl seems happy to stay in the same position...give or take an inch...or so it seems from my end. I occasionally feel a tap around my belly button area, but I think those are her arms and head...who knows! I wish my belly were translucent like a fish bowl so I could watch her in there...I know, I'm a freak!
Food Cravings: Chipotle Steak Burritos...yum!
What I Miss: My memory! I seem to be so forgetful these days...like leaving my car doors open at night with the GPS inside and forgetting my yoga mat in the yoga studio, etc.... just simple things, but they keep adding up and it's bugging me!! I feel like such an airhead some days!
What am I looking forward to: Our next doctor's appointment!! (May 12th) I feel like each one resets my confidence and they always make me feel better. I'm just paranoid sometimes and even though I try to stop, it creeps up on me. Guess this is just the lineage that infertility leaves behind. Grr.
Milestones: Finishing my registry!! Seriously this may sound silly to some, but for me it was a real learning curve. I avoided all things baby when I couldn't get pregnant so now that this is real and actually happening for us I had to get out there and learn about all these things. I've called a lot of friends and researched a lot of products to determine which the best products are and what some of the things I really don’t need are. It feels good to finally be up to speed on baby gear so now when people say things like "travel system" I know what they're talking about!
How is Daddy? Great! He's going on a business trip next week, which I always hate, but at least this is his last one before Baby Morgan arrives!
