25 Weeks

There are days where I don't feel too pregnant, and then others where I feel HUGE! Little boy sure adjusts himself in there! One day he'll be nice and tucked in, then the next it's like he rolls over and shoves his butt & back out. My parents have seen this phenomenon -- I was at their house this past weekend and when I got up Sunday he was pooched out. I asked them if I looked bigger (because I felt it) and my dad nodded. Baby boy has also seemed to drop a little lower -- no, not the drop, just lower than he used to be. He's also a mover, like my other two. Carter really enjoys feeling him move and watch my belly bounce. :)

Other than feeling huge some days, I'm feeling great. I've been sleeping well, eating well, and getting exercise. We just got the Wii Fit this week, and I'm able to do a lot of the "training" games on it (and even do better than Matt with my belly!). I gained 1/2 pound this week, making it 15.5 lbs overall. Not too bad for as hungry as I am!

(Today at 25 weeks; with Lauren (belly shot!) at 25 weeks. Yep... bigger!)

Here's what's going on with baby: "Head to heels, your baby now measures about 13 1/2 inches. His weight — a pound and a half — isn't much more than an average rutabaga, but he's beginning to exchange his long, lean look for some baby fat. As he does, his wrinkled skin will begin to smooth out and he'll start to look more and more like a newborn. He's also growing more hair — and if you could see it, you'd now be able to discern its color and texture."

Still working on baby names -- Matt's stuck on one, and won't branch out! Suggestions?
