Well hello everyone! I hope all is well out there in blogland on this lovely Thursday morning.
It is COLD and rainy here in Germany. Surprise, surprise! I keep checking the forecast hoping for a little sunshine, but I don't think we'll be seeing that anytime soon. I can't remember the last time I saw the sun... well come to think of it, the last time was when we were in Oklahoma during our Thanksgiving holiday. Seriously... this girl needs some Vitamin D like stat!
Anyway, I wanted to do a quick update on my pregnancy.
As of yesterday I am officially 25 weeks pregnant! HOLY MOLY!
How Far Along: 25 Weeks!!
Size of Baby: She is about 1-1/2 pounds to 2 pounds right now and the size of an eggplant! Wow!
Total Weight Gain: Not quite sure, but I'll find out next week at my monthly appointment. I'm sure it's a pretty hefty amount!
Gender: Girl! Sophie Belle.
Sleep: It's been alright this week. I've been waking up in the middle of the night and feeling her moving around a bit, but I (thank God) can go back to sleep pretty easily.
Maternity Clothes: Yes! Maternity jeans and I'm still wearing my own shirts for the most part.
Cravings: Cereal. I just want cereal all of the time! Then something salty, then something sweet, then something salty, etc. You get the picture. It's a viscous cycle!
Symptoms: I feel pretty good as of now! Thank God!
Last week I had a pretty funny moment with Sophie. I was lying in bed watching TV when out of no where I get this HUGE kick to my side. It was such a big kick that it scared me and I literally jumped! That was one big kick from such a little girl! It's been fantastic feeling her move. I love it every time I feel her. But I am sure that'll change as her kicks get more and more powerful. Walking is definitely becoming a lot harder. While we were in Budapest, I became exhausted so much faster than I normally would! We'd walk a couple of miles, then I'd have to sit and regain some energy, and we'd trudge on. Not sure how much more hiking we'll be doing since I am getting bigger and bigger by the day!
Well, I'm off to get some work done! I hope you all have a wonderful Thursday. Tomorrow is Friday woohoo! Then Jon and I are off for a three day weekend, Thank you Martin Luther King Jr.
See y'all tomorrow!
