From my weekly email: Head to heels, your baby now measures about 13 1/2 inches. His weight — a pound and a half — isn't much more than an average rutabaga, but he's beginning to exchange his long, lean look for some baby fat. As he does, his wrinkled skin will begin to smooth out and he'll start to look more and more like a newborn. He's also growing more hair — and if you could see it, you'd now be able to discern its color and texture.

How far along?: 25w1d
How big is baby?: The size of a rutabaga, 13 1/2 inches.
Weight gain/loss?: 15lbs.
Stretch marks?: None, thankfully.
Maternity clothes?: Yes please.
Sleep?: Brutal. I keep waking up in the middle of the night with reason or without.
Food cravings?: A gorgeous raspberry steak salad.
Gender?: We're having another son!
Movement?: Baby Love was quiet this weekend, but today he's not letting me forget about him!
Belly button?: I'm starting to lose it . . .
What are you looking forward to this week?: Next weekend.

Notables: Last week I had another midwife appointment. Tony and I were cautioned by the nurse to be careful in trying for a girl, since she had 4 daughters and then had twins [boy and girl] when trying for a boy! I told her no worries there.

My weight and blood pressure [102/60] were again "beautiful" according to the midwife, fundal height was spot on at 25cm and Baby Love's heart beat was a reassuring 148 bpm.

Baby Love was a little quiet over the weekend, but I have noticed a few sore spots on my stomach and as soon as I press on them Baby Love moves. Apparently he's already taking up residence in areas that are causing me some pain.

I am starving, cranky and very tired. Basically Tony loves that hockey is done and that he has to be around me all the time.

Beautiful as ever Leah!

Kristal said...

I'm so jealous of your hair. Your hair has looked gorgeous in every bump picture you've posted and this week's is no exception. Is you hair naturally wavy like that?

Leah said...

@Kristal - Hah! Don't be. I showered and slept on it after Zumba last night. It was crazy this morning, but I kind of tamed it down with a curling iron.

Unpolished Parenting said...

Yes, sleep has gotten miserable for me too already. I wake up feeling like I hardly slept because I tossed and turned half the night! What's up with that?

Andrea said...

There's no denying that bump now!

Megan said...

Ditto Kristal's comment, I was going to say the same thing.

If there's a reason to love Mondays (let's face it...there's not many good ones!), it's because I get to see your bump pictures. Cute as ever.

Krystie said...
