Pregnancy - Week 25

I'm gonna start my week 25 post with a funny/embarrassing story.

So for those of you who know me outside of just the blogging world you know that pre-pregnancy I weighed all of 115lbs at 5'3." I've been small all my life, when I got married I barely weighed 100 lbs. So you would imagine, tight spaces have never been an issue for me. My hubby always use to glare at me when I'd sneak through a tight space and he had to walk around :-). Well last night I got a little taste of my own medicine. We decided to go out for a little Mexican last night, yum yum! Well the lady goes to seat us in a booth and me being me, I never looks twice when she said 'is this ok?' HA! Well when I went to sit down I couldn't. Yes, you guessed it, the booth was so tight that once my hubby sat down I couldn't get my belly wedged between the seat and the table. The poor waitress tried to help by scooting my booth back some but it didn't help. We had to request to be moved to a different table :-( Of course I was laughing the entire time because never could I have imagine I would have trouble 'fitting' somewhere. The ladies at the adjacent booth got quite the kick out of it too!! Just goes to prove again 'there's a first time for everything!'


How far along: 25 weeks 6 days
Total weight gain/loss: 38.6 lbs
Maternity clothes: At this point I think this is kind of a silly question! I'm now having to buy bigger sized maternity clothes!
Stretch marks: Yes, ugh :-( I have them on the lower part of my belly. I'm not thrilled about them but I'm starting to accept that its just part of carrying two healthy, p
Sleeping: I've been sleeping a little more decent lately. I get up about twice a night to pee and normally about twice a night to re-adjust my position and pillows.
Best moment last week: Our BABY SHOWER!! I couldn't have imagined it turning out any better. Our babies were showered with so much love it amazes me still.
Symptoms: Heartburn/acid reflux, constipation, lack of energy, some hip pain
Food cravings: I currently love any type of orange flavored drink. I go through a big thing of Gatorade in about 2 days! I also want something to drink constantly.
Food aversions: Nothing
I miss: nothing! I couldn't be happier.
What I am looking forward to: Getting the nursery finished and organized. Our next shower in a few weeks. Making it to 32 weeks, I feel like when I get there I can breathe a huge sigh of relief.
Body Changes: I still have a linea nigra, it hasn't been getting any darker so I think maybe its as dark as it will be. Of course my belly is changing what feels like daily. And I am now getting stretch marks.
Other Thoughts: I had been feeling some pressure and contractions over the last week. Turns out that Miss Finley had herself lodged right on top of my cervix. No wonder I felt like I was carrying a ton of bricks down there. The doctor said naturally with where she was I would have some mild contractions. Luckily, Wednesday night she moved so yesterday and today I've felt a great deal of relief. Everyday that gets closer to my due date I breath a little bigger sigh of relief. I worry almost constantly of going into labor early and an praying that things continue to go as well as they have. At this point I could even deal with bed rest to the end to get them here healthy and plump! As I said in my earlier post, I am sad that this journey is coming to a close but I can't wait to begin the next one!!

Hi there! I here ya on the booths...pretty much stick to tables now a days. I am having some of the same issues (as you have probably seen on my blog)...maternity clothes are too tight in the tummy but too big everywhere else! My Gatorade of choice was lemon-lime G2...but I had to give it up for plain ol water b/c of the sodium content (I would be way more puffy when I drank it)...man I miss it!

I look forward to keeping up with your blog...nice to hear that other people are experiencing similar things. Best wishes for a continued healthy and happy pregnancy!

That's such a cute story- make sure you remember it for baby books. :-) I was getting pretty close to the table when sitting in booths too..such a WEIRD feeling.
Thank you for your comment on my page- this sucks. Everything was going SOOO well. I felt GREAT and then Bam- they are asking me who my pediatrician is, if we'll have our boy circumsized, if we completed our birth classes. It was so incredibly scary. Thankfully, our babies are strong and this irritable uterus I have isn't taking a toll on them. Just sad because it feels like part of my pregnancy is over....ugh. Anyway, we'll make the best of it and we'll get through. Keep trucking along my friend! You look fantastic!!!
