24 & 25 Weeks

This photo and update will have to do for both my 24th and 25th weeks since I didn't take a picture last week (my 25th). And - yes-since I'm currently in my 26th week this post is a bit late :)

Marination Time: 25 weeks last Saturday

Weight Gain:  17 lbs at last appointment (almost a month ago) ... It should be "fun" to see the scale at my next ob/gyn appointment this Friday!

Maternity Clothes:  I'm rethinking my current maternity jeans. They'e the low-rise, demi-panel type and they're majorly cutting into my mid-section right now. I don't think Baby Boy likes them either because he tends to direct his kicks at the waistband :)

Fruit of the Week: Eggplant (The Bump) or Rutabega (BabyCenter)

Movement: Not as many to-the-belly japs and kicks this week, making me think he's found a new position he enjoys.  

Cravings: Not any specific cravings, but the Chipotle burrito bowl that I had for dinner on Friday night really hit the spot :)

Annoyances: Fellow passengers on an overcrowded train on the DC Metro who do not offer their seat to a very tired pregnant lady carrying too many bags and wearing really uncomfortable shoes!!!

Highlights of the Week:  Fatigue, pregnancy congestion, and hip pain during sleep aside, I can honestly say I'm really loving this part of pregnancy.  I'm actually looking the part, but the belly isn't huge enough to majorly get in the way, and I'm still feeling generally great.
