Weekly Update - 25 Weeks! Holy Moly!

Wednesday, March 25, 2009

We are cruising right along!! I can not believe that next week I will be in my third trimester! Crazy! Things have been going pretty well lately, feeling pretty good (just a lot larger) and I find myself really starting to feel the effects of the belly. I am starting to notice that I am getting a bit out of balance (not much) and that I can feel the weight of the tummy when walking up the stairs, etc. Now that the weather is nicer, I am hoping to get out to do some more walking and hopefully that will help me get used to the belly. I am looking forward to my next doctors appointment which is on Friday this week. It is just always reassuring to be able to hear her little heart beating. Below is a picture of the belly at 25 Weeks exactly!

We also finally get to have another fruit/vegetable this week! So for weeks 25 - 28, little peanut is an Eggplant (despite the fact that mommy is still craving brussel-spouts on a daily basis)!

How Is Baby Growing?

Head to heels, the little peanut measures about 13 1/2 inches. Her weight, about a pound and a half, isn't much more than an average rutabaga, 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! If you could see it, we would now be able to discern its color and texture!


  1. WOW, I can't believe your already 25 weeks. Time does fly. How's the Nursery coming along?

  2. I know, it's crazy!! The nursery is pretty much still a giant mess ha! Other then ordering the crib and dresser, we haven't gotten very far. We picked out our bedding and registered for it, but still can't decide on how to paint! Hopefully this weekend we will make some progress though..
