Bumpdate | Week 25

Week|  25

Total Weight Gain| I think I'm holding steady since last week, I've been trying really hard to not over indulge and eat a little better.

Gender| Baby Girl!

Symptoms| I had some serious swelling going on last week, but I'm going to attribute that to the combination of pregnancy and the fact that the weather went from like 40 degrees to 80 degrees in a matter of like 2 days.  My feet were so swollen by Sunday that I could barely squeeze them into my dance shoes for an event that we had.  I already have a bigger pair on the way for these warmer days we are moving into.  And lets just say I got a preview of what a hot sweaty summer this will most likely be!  The weather was absolutely gorgeous, while dancing in it was definitely toasty!  My other new symptom this past week seems to be my aching back, I've never been one to have any back aches or pains, so I'm definitely being a bit of a baby with how much it's been aching lately.

Cravings|  Still wanting much of nothing, it's hard for me to think of something that sounds appetizing, but don't get me wrong I'm still plenty hungry.  But there is nothing I have to have at the moment.

Sleep|  Aside from the soreness in my back every time I flip from side to side, knock on wood, it's been going pretty good lately.

Clothes|  Pretty much all maternity all the time.  I picked up a pair of pregnancy spanx which I've found are definitely going to come in handy under summer dresses, mostly because I can't stand when my legs rub together, and they are pretty much at the point where they will be doing that all the time!

Workouts| I managed 2 walks, 1 DVD session, 1 light weight session, and a pretty strenuous Saturday of dancing - which has to count for something!

Nursery|  Martin has been doing great spending a lot of time on the nursery these last few weeks.  This last week he got the paint up on the upper half of the wall so I definitely will be back with a nursery update next week, things are progressing!

Movement|  I'm feeling more and more, which I love.  It still slows down, or is hardly noticeable when I'm teaching/dancing.  But in the mornings, and at night she's getting to be more and more active.  It's so strange when you are just laying there and you can see the movements flutter across your belly from the outside.

Best Moment this Week|  We started our prepared childbirth classes at the hospital this week.  Now I can't necessarily say that sitting in a room for 3 1/2 hours was the best moment of the week, but every milestone we check off is exciting and it means we are that much closer to not only meeting our little one, but also being prepared for meeting her!
