25 Week Survey

How Far Along: 25 weeks
Size of Baby: About the size of rutabaga.
Head to heels, your baby now measures about 13 1/2 inches. Her weight — a pound and a half — isn't much more than an average rutabaga (Whatever that is...?!?), but she's beginning to exchange her long, lean look for some baby fat. As she does, her wrinkled skin will begin to smooth out and she'll start to look more and more like a newborn. She's also growing more hair — and if you could see it, you'd now be able to discern its color and texture. *Information from http://www.babycenter.com/.

Maternity Clothes: yes! :)

Gender: It's a surprise!!

Movement: Yes, all the time and I am LOVING IT!!! =)

What I Miss: Not much.

Sleep: Good! I wake up to Pee every night but only once a night right now. (Around 3am every morning).  This was the first week I had a leg cramp.  I even had to wake Derek up and tell him to help me. haha. Poor guy...I probably scared him to death. He was sweet and rubbed it for me then went right back to sleep. (What a great hubs!!)

Cravings: Coffee, Soda and Candy still... (Sometimes popcorn if I need a snack in the evenings)

Best Moment This Week: I had an emotional breakdown (not the best moment) becase I have so much going on at work and other activities we have going on and trying to keep the house in order and being tired all the time I sleep as much as I can.  So the house is what gets the shaft...well, my sweet husband told me to go to bed and he would take care of the house the next day.  So, the best moment of the week is realizing (again) I have the best husband in the world.  He cares about me and my sanity. :)

Another funny thing that happened this week - Let me preface you with some info: Since I have been pregnant vegetables in general have sounded aweful to me.  I can eat 2 vegetables (Lettuce and Green Beans) that is it.  All the rest I buy with good intentions and then can't bring myself to cook them or eat them.  So, I just stopped buying them.  We were on our way home from church and Derek was asking what sides we were having with our meat that was in the crockpot.  So I told him mashed potatoes and green beans.  He says very sweetly, "Umm...do you think it would be possible for us to eat another vegetable with our meal sometime soon."  I looked at him and said, "Nope. I dont think so. The thought of eating any other vegetable just makes me sick." He said, "Okay, green beans are GREAT!" haha.  Sweet husband award AGAIN, eating green beans AGAIN! haha. :) Thank Derek for being so understanding and eating green beans for I can't remember how many meals in a row so I feel like I am getting my greens in!!

What We Are Looking Forward To: NC State Football!!!!! I am such a huge NC State Football fan! I love it! Even when we lose, I enjoy yelling at the TV and telling them I could play better than that.  They play Cincinatti this week and I'm really looking forward to watching it!!

For leg cramps ...

Get a Calcium/Magnesium supplement and start taking one each night before you go to bed. That should take care of the cramps!
Tara said…
Yep, calcium/magnesium will do the trick! I took one of those everyday while pregnant and it helped so much!

Loved all your stories, especially green beans :) You look great and I'm glad that Derek is being such a help to you in so many ways!

I can see how you would feel tired with so much going on and only 1 you to do alot of it! Sweet Derek...good for him stepping up to help, and being agreeable to lots and lots of green beans!
