25 Weeks 5 Days



How far along? 25 weeks 5 days

Weight gain/loss: around 17 pounds

Symptoms: Back aches, lots of peeing, leakage .. er .. heartburn/acid reflux
Maternity clothes? I'm in love with my maternity jeans from Old Navy, they're heaven

Stretch marks? *sniff sniff* there on my belly. stupid genetics.

Sleep? I’ve been getting really warm while I sleep which makes it hard for me to get comfortable. I’m the type of person who needs it to be cold and fans running.

Best moment this week? Finding out I passed my Glucose Test. Always a good thing not to have gestational diabetes.

Food cravings: Eh. I’ve noticed that I don’t really have cravings, It’s just whatever I see is what I want.

Gender: A beautiful girl.

Belly button in or out? Still an innie.

Movement? Mornings & nights is when she shines.

What I miss? Autumn, not having heartburn/acid reflux, the cold (i’m not a fan of the heat, I seriously prefer jeans and a hoodie)

Labor Signs: None, which is a plus.

What I'm looking forward to: Autumn, Justin going back to 1st shift, finishing the nursery, baby shower and I’m honestly excited for my belly button to stick out.

Milestones: I passed my Glucose Test!
 

What's Laila Up To?
Your baby is growing by leaps and bounds, reaching nine inches in length and passing the pound and a half mark. Under her skin, capillaries are forming and filling with blood and by week's end, air sacs (also lined with capillaries) will develop in her lungs, getting them ready for that first breath. Mind you, those lungs aren't ready for prime time just yet — but they are developing surfactant, a substance that will help them expand after birth. And speaking of breathing, your baby's tiny nostrils, which have been plugged up until now, are starting to open, and her vocal chords are getting ready to roar.
