Weekly Update

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 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!


  1. I really love the idea of a fish-bowl belly. It would greatly help reassure me that this baby is fine even if I think the movement is too infrequent or weak. Glad you're doing well!

  2. Thank you for your comment on my post this morning, it's so nice to know that we're all a little nuts sometimes.

    I think I've finished my registry too and it was just exhausting!!! It does feel like an accomplishment to be done, doesn't it? Who knew shopping could be so stressful?

    Our baby girl has her feet by my belly button and head and arms down by my bladder and she still manages to punch it! (at least that's where she was and it seems to have not changed)

    Thanks for reminding me that I need to blog more about my symptoms and other things that I'll want to remember. I always just go with the emotional outlet part of blogging.

    Have a great weekend!! XOXO

  3. I love the translucent belly idea! That would be the coolest thing! Thank you for being such a wonderful friend and always rooting me on. You are simply the best and your support is so appreciated!

  4. I always said I wished I had "ultrasound eyes" so I could just see into my belly to make sure they were okay. IF does that I think . . .

    15 pounds is awesome!! I'm a little disappointed at no cute belly pics this week. :)
