baby is the size of: a rutabaga
how far along are you: 25 weeks 3 days
what's happening with baby: Baby is beginning to exchange the long and lean look for some baby at. As this happens, wrinkled skin will smooth out and he will start to look more and more like a newborn. Baby's also growing more hair - if we could see it, we'd be able to discern its color and texture!
due date: jan 10
maternity clothes: everything i wear is maternity, at this point, with the exception of a few open-front cardigans and a couple dresses.
sleep: not going well.
best moment this week: baby went to his first concert last saturday. we went to see farm aid in hershey. it was so much fun. baby was pretty quiet, but that's probably because mommy was up dancing quite a bit.
what are you looking forward to: we have one more ultrasound on monday. this will be our last look at baby boy until he makes his grand entrance!
food cravings: nothing in particular this week.
food/smell aversions: nothing.
what do you miss: normal sleep. not worrying about whether or not i have gestational diabetes.
symptoms: big belly. back pain in the middle of the night. heartburn. and still this issue with processing sugar.
gender: baby boy!!
belly button: in. but it's definitely stretching, and if i stretch the skin around my belly button, it starts to pop up a little.
rings: on, and for most of this week it was ok.
