How big is baby: Head of Chinese cabbage 14.8 inches and 2.25 pounds.

Weight gain/loss: Well, at 26w I nailed down the 22 lb gain that was my target, which I wasn't thrilled about, but I'm grateful to have stayed at that number for the past two weeks.

Sleep: Sleeping on my back has definitely reached the point of uncomfortable, so it's right side or left side.

Diet/Cravings/Aversions: WATERMELON. This one is just going to continue!

Movement: Baby girl is so active after my morning coffee and it's been really funny to cuddle with the boys while she's kicking their arms hard enough for them to notice.

What I'm loving: That I've only got 8 more weddings before this little miss arrives! Each one is just a marginal degree more difficult than the previous and 8 seems like a great number.

Symptoms: I've always had calf and foot cramps, but lately it's been inner thigh cramps, which are 1000% worse.

What I'm looking forward to: I think it's hilarious that three weeks ago I was excited to start planning baby girl's room . . . and here I am with barely any progress towards that end!
 
Best moment of the week:
I'm still going to have to go with lifting at the Y. I'm in love.

How far along: 25 weeks. [25w with Miri, 25w with Ezra, 25w with Isaac


How big is baby: A cauliflower at 13.6-14.8 inches and 1.5-2.2 pounds.

Weight gain/loss: I think I'm already closing in on 18 lbs. Definitely not where I hoped I'd be.

Sleep: I'm back to complaining about Miri. Girlfriend has picked up a little bit of a cough and combined with cutting all four top teeth, it's been difficult around here.

Diet/Cravings/Aversions: WATERMELON. This one is just going to continue!

Movement: Absolutely confirmed. Movement almost every hour.

What I'm loving: Knowing that my baby is healthy! And another girl!

Symptoms: Leg cramps are back on the docket.

What I'm looking forward to: I'm really looking forward to actually making some choices regarding the girls' room and putting something together!
 
Best moment of the week:
I'm still going to have to go with lifting at the Y. It has been completely priceless to me and this past weekend's wedding didn't seem to effect my muscles at all, just a general ache in my lower body.
