25 Week Survey
By Libelula264 » Posted Jan. 9, 2019 2:16am - 292 views - 0 comments

How far along? 24w4d. 61% complete.

Which trimester are you in? 2nd

How many days until your due date? 108

How big is baby? ~14 inches, 1.5lbs

What milestones has your baby reached this week? Fine tuning systems that have developed overall, and packing on body fat. Gaining weight at a rate of about ½ pound every week. Senses are developing nicely as he is able to distinguish between sweet and salty tastes. He can also make out sounds including familiar voices.

What are some of your pregnancy symptoms? Braxton hicks, lots and lots of them. Increased discharge. Lots of energy, but not a ton of motivation. Insane dreams about babies running around at 4 months old (freaky), and many dreams about exes. Why do those pop up during EVERY pregnancy?!?

Any cravings? Fruit, ice cream, nachos

Any food aversions? No.

What emotions have you experienced this week? Impatience, anxiety, depression, excitement. The whole gambit!

Have any stretch marks? Not yet, and hopefully my no-stretch-mark streak will hold out for this last pregnancy.

How much weight have you gained? ~9lbs

Belly button in or out? In but flat, shallow and stretched out.

Wedding rings on or off? On and still a bit loose

Felt any movement? GOOD LORD this boy is active! He tickles me down low, sucker punches to the side, and then drags and kicks his ankles/feet all around my belly. I swear to God his toes even tickle me too! Having a posterior placenta is like NIGHT AND DAY from an anterior one... My placenta was anterior with my last and it must have been a very thick barrier.

Gender? All Boy.

How has your sleep been? Still pretty good, other than the night sweats.

Are you nesting? At a glacial pace

Labor signs? Nope, not counting BH's since they're not changing my cervix (yet).

What was your best moment last week? 3D ultrasound on Sunday! I am still so amazed by how chubby his cheeks look already, and he has so many recognizable expressions!

What are you looking forward to this week? Not having an OB appt! My Dr. is giving me a break from bi-weekly cervix U/S's until 1/30 since I've been so stable. Makes me nervous, but at the same time a break will be nice.
