How far along? 25 weeks (wow! when did that happen?! and this is my first real post about it...)
Maternity Clothes? pants, yes definitely. i just splurged (not really - they were actually on major sale) and got two pairs of maternity leggings. how did i not get these the first time around?? best pants ever. i still try to wear non-maternity shirts (mostly cuz i only have like 5 total maternity shirts, 3 of which i just bought last week), but they're all getting too small/short.
Sleep: i'm still sleeping pretty well. i tend to only get up once a night, probably partly due to the fact that i work late a lot of nights and don't go to bed til 1am & i'm up at 630-7am with gracie. i usually sleep pretty well during those few hours, although it is getting harder to flip myself from side to side. and my hips hurt.
Best moment this week: i asked gracie what baby sisters name is and she said excitedly "waco!". that's my brother-in-laws name ;) maybe more a gracie story than baby story, but it was pretty funny
Miss Anything? sleeping on my stomach.
Movement: i feel her a lot more just the last week, but i still expected to feel her more/more often by now. it just hasn't been super consistent yet, i feel like, but i do feel her every day now, so that's good. she's usually always active in the evening, around 10pm or so, just like her sister was.
Food cravings: nothing i'd really call a 'craving'. i like the same things as i did the first time - turkey sandwiches, ice cream, lots of water.
Anything making you queasy or sick? not really at this point. i was definitely more sick in the beginning than i was with gracie and i've been more spontaneously sick this time then before, but i haven't gotten sick in the last couple weeks at all, i don't think.
Have you started to show yet? uhhhh yeah.
Labor Signs: none yet, thank goodness
Belly Button in or out? in
Weddings rings on or off? still on, yay!
Happy or Moody most of the time: i would probably have to answer moody, but that isn't necessarily pregnancy's fault. our life has been a constant up & down the last 6 weeks or so, and there's still more to come of that in the next few weeks. i'm just exhausted, let's be real. exhaustion = easily grumpy for me.
Looking forward to: the fall & cooler weather. jackets and sweaters. maybe some time to relax???
