25 Weeks!

First of all, yay because I've officially surpassed 10,000 views.  It means nothing, but nice to know someone is listening :)

How far along? 25 Weeks and 3 days


Total weight gain: 15 lbs - this is a story all on it's own. So last post ended with me saying I felt big.  blah blah blah.  So I go to the doctor and I had gained 6 lbs.  Not too bad in my opinion.  Doc comes in and says "you are gaining too much weight, what happened?"  I immediately apologized and felt a rush of embarrassment.  Then she says "you gained 35 lbs so far"  WHOA WHOA WHOA!  what????  I said, "ummm no, only 15"  They put 26 lbs weight gain instead of 6 in the computer!!!!!!!!!!!!! WHAT THE F!  To make a long story short, I got reweighed and yes, 6 lbs thank you very much.  I proceeded to leave as quickly as possible and cried my eyes out to DH right when I got in the car.  It's over now and let's just hope that never happens again!
Stretch marks? yes, old ones are starting to show more.  Funny thing is I don't have the Linea Negra with this pregnancy and it was VERY VISIBLE with Emma.  
Sleep: Sleep is not too bad.  I wake up 1 - 3 times to pee, but if Emma sleeps, I sleep :)
Best moment this week: Celebrated McKenna's 1st Birthday!  We had lots of fun in PA playing with everyone and going swimming at Grammy and Grandpop's!



Miss Anything? Wine and Beer and Champagne. 
Movement: Lots every day. 
Food cravings: Cereal
Anything making you queasy or sick: Not really. I haven't been able to eat fish lately, although last night we had potato encrusted cod and it was delicious.  
Gender: Boy
Labor Signs: No
Symptoms: Awful back pain, heartburn
Belly Button in or out? eh, I'd say "in"
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or Moody most of the time: It depends on the hour, but I'd like to think Happy most of the time.
Looking forward to: Well, I'm looking forward to meeting Matthew.  I have 102 days to go, but it's getting there. Funnily enough I feel like with Emma I was like, Come on Come on and with Matthew I'm more thinking, take your time, please take your time :)

Also, THE BEACH!  Can't wait for vaca this year.  
Next appt. (July 14th) I have my glucose test. Hopefully I'll pass the first time this pregnancy.  Remind me not to eat a fig newton on my way and it might help, haha. I'll also start appts every 2 weeks, which is kind of fun to look forward to because it means it's getting closer!


25 WEEKS WITH EMMA!


How far along? 25 Weeks and 2 days
Total weight gain: 23 lbs (still hopefully) Since I went to the gym twice this week which is more than I've done in the past few months, I'll assume I'm staying at the same weight :)
Maternity clothes? Yes Please.
Stretch marks? A few, but I'm feeling pretty good on that front.
Sleep: Sleep is not good right now.  I can't get comfortable and my mind races for about the first 2 hours of laying down about different things.
Best moment this week: Painting Emma's room :)  (pics to follow, but here is a sneak peak)

Chris and I decided to get fancy and put chair rail in as well. It didn't fit in our car, so this is me hoping to not get decapitated. It was actually really funny and we are so proud of our finished product.

We also had a really fun New Year's Eve at our neighbor's house (Matt and Julie). They had family down and invited us along. We did dinner and drinks and had really fun conversation.  I don't think I could have asked for anything more.
Miss Anything? Wine and Beer and Champagne.  NYE was fun though.  I did allow myself 1 glass of champagne and trust me, Chris would not have allowed a sip more. :)  But I kept busy with Sparkling Cider and Non-Alcoholic Champagne - YES, it's awful.
Movement: Lots every day. Keep it coming :)
Food cravings: Cereal
Anything making you queasy or sick: Not really.
Gender: Girl
Labor Signs: No
Symptoms: Nice dark line down my belly, rib pain from time to time, tired, moody, but feeling good today!
Belly Button in or out? In-ish - it's hanging on by a thread these days.
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or Moody most of the time: It depends on the hour, but I'd like to think Happy most of the time.
Looking forward to: Well, I'm looking forward to meeting Emma.  I have 103 days to go, but it's getting there.

Next appt. (Jan. 24th) I have my glucose test. WISH ME LUCK! I'll also start appts every 2 weeks, which is kind of fun to look forward to because it means it's getting closer!
