yay 6 months!!!

Week of June 28th  

How Far Along? 25 weeks!!!!

25 weeks YAY
Due Date:  October 11th

Total weight gain/loss: not so sure...don't really care...

Maternity Clothes? everything and i love them. They are waaaay more comfortable than regular clothes...I may NEVER go back! 

Stretch Marks? It's been a bad week for these. I worked on Friday and came home to take a shower and saw 4 small faint stretch marks on my stomach. I no joke didn't sleep for 2 days. I know they may be a part of life, and I have SEVERAL on my sides from growing so fast as a kid, but honestly having them on my stomach makes me feel like the ugliest pregnant girl EVER. I hate that I feel that way but I do. I had my down moments and self pity moments but I've boughten like 3 different products and am lathering up my stomach with burts bee's mama bee balm, bioOil and cocoa butter. Hopefully this will help because I can't loose anymore sleep over this!

Sleep?  It's been bad this week too. I've stayed on sides but I just can't seem to sleep through the night. I know it's only going to get worse but man...this sucks!!

Best Moment of this Week?  The mural in the baby's room is done. My friend from FL came up and painted a tree and a scene from one of the winnie the pooh books. I had originally wanted her to paint more but since I don't have anymore furniture that would make it hard. Also we sort of ran out of time while she was here. So she's going to do some canvas paintings that we will place throughout the room. But she did a fabulous job and I couldn't be happier with it!

Movement? YES!!!! For like 2 days straight I felt the baby a lot, but then for the next 4 I hardly felt it at all, it was like he/she tired it's self out and slept for 4 days...more like it's dad then it will ever know! But I've felt a lot of movement the last few days :)

Food cravings? nope...not really

Food aversions? nope

Gender? I'm still keeping you guessing, even though people are really getting annoyed with me...i find it funny. 

Labor Signs?  Contractions still happening daily. I freaked my instructor out bc she thought I was going into preterm labor, so that was funny. But not really having more than 4-5 contractions a day. 

Getting BIG!
My ugly no belly button ring...boy that was dumb!!

Belly Button In or Out? Still in thank goodness, starting to get slightly more shallow

What I miss? not feeling tired all the time, and my throat not burning. I'm assuming this is heartburn, but  it's really just in my throat so IDK?

What I am looking forward to: Taking my final on Thursday. Then I will be down to only 1 class before graduation. Also I will be starting the application process for taking boards and beginning to study...lots of good things to come!

Size of the Baby:

Baby's now the size of an eggplant!
That oh-so-handy sense of equilibrium is kicking in, and baby's learning to distinguish right side up from upside down.
