25 Weeks

Ha pop out belly? I am always amazed when I see my profile! I guess that's why I do these pictures, so I can see how it's just growing!

So this week was a brutal one. I was sick with a cold for about two weeks and then last Saturday I was in the hospital for 6 hours because I was dehydrated and had contracted influenza! I was so sick. I couldn't breathe from my nose and then I was shivering and feverish with the flu! They had to give me two bags of fluid through an IV (which I hate more than anything) and tested me with every swab, stick and poker you can imagine! Luckily baby was perfectly fine and I was able to recover within just a few days. I hate being sick! I have been nothing but sick this entire pregnancy! (I guess it is my fault for not getting the flu shot) Lets hope I'll stay healthy from now on!

How far along? 25 weeks or 6 months

Total weight gain/loss: 13 lbs.

Maternity clothes? Yep these jeans are maternity!
Sleep: Still tossing and turning. I now wake up on my back and my belly is killing me! I guess that's why they advise against sleeping on your back.
Movement: I am convinced he is learning how to walk in there... He never stops!
Food cravings: SWEETS! I am on an all time sugar high. I just want everything sugary, chocolatey and sweet! It's bad...
Anything making you queasy or sick? Just my sickness. But I'm over it now!
Miss anything? Comfortable sitting. I can't bend over either!
Belly button in or out? Still trying to stay flat!

21 Weeks

Wow is that really my belly? It seems so weird to look at me from the side!

How far along? 21 weeks or 5 months
Baby's measurements: 10.5 in. 12.7 oz
Gender: Boy
Total weight gain/loss: 8 lbs.
Maternity clothes? Not yet.
Sleep: Miserable. I am constantly tossing and turning and it's ruining my already very split ends!
Movement: So sad, but sometimes he makes me sick when he kicks. I love it so much, but it just makes all of my insides feel like puking...
Food cravings: Cheeseburgers and still strawberry milk. (maybe because I haven't fed that craving yet. haha)
Anything making you queasy or sick? Watching poorly made TV where the camera moves around a lot.
Miss anything? Feeling comfortable. I am so uncomfortable for like 98% of the day! I feel like I just won a pie eating contest and that tight, too full feeling never goes away!
Belly button in or out? Still in...
Happy or moody? Happy :)
Best moment this week: I started to feel him kick on the outside! Steve still can't though, so maybe it's just my thinking I can feel him. haha
Weekly wisdom: Don't eat too much at one meal
Looking forward to: Next doctor visit this week! They are giving me the results of the ultrasound. Lets pray he is a normal healthy baby!

I promise Winston will have his post very soon!
