25 Weeks :)

Your Pregnancy: Week 25

Baby's now the size of an eggplant! That oh-so-handy sense of equilibrium is kicking in, and baby's learning to distinguish right side up from upside down.

Baby @ 25 Weeks:

This is a big week for your baby! Around pregnancy week 25, the structures of his spine are starting to form, including 33 vertebrae (rings of bone), 150 joints, and 1,000 ligaments. These structures will eventually support your baby’s body weight. Your baby’s capillaries are also forming this week. Capillaries are the tiny blood vessels that move blood from the heart to tissues in the body. By the end of week 25, air sacs and blood vessels in your baby’s lungs will develop, getting him ready for his first breath. So far in your pregnancy, your little one’s nostrils have been plugged up, but they are now beginning to open up.

With the advances in technology, if your baby were to be born this week, he has up to an 82 percent chance of survival with aggressive ICU treatment.

My Pregnancy this far:

How far along? 25 weeks 3 days (today)

Maternity Clothes? Oh yeah!

Sleep: Same, I fall asleep quickly, but wake up several times throughout the night/morning.

Movement: Mason is definitely an active baby! This weekend his kicks were so strong and frequent. Saturday morning he would kick my left side, I'd put my hand there and then he'd start kicking on the right side, so I'd quickly move my hand there and then he'd start kicking in the middle. I couldn't keep up with him!!

Food Cravings: Subway and Kool-Aid :) lol
Food Aversions: Not really

Symptoms: You name it! :) Started getting really sleepy again. Not like 1st trimester sleepy, but I have less energy than I did in weeks 15-23ish. I wish that would come back!!!

Belly button in or out? Getting closer to an outie. It's funny! And it feels weird.

What am I looking forward to? Getting to hear Mason's heartbeat on Wednesday!! And getting the Glucose testing over with!! I've heard it's awful, so I am determined to just get it done.

Weekly Joy: Kicks, definitely the kicks. And that Daddy gets to feel them too! <-- ditto from last week. This morning Daddy got to feel Mason kick at 5 am before leaving for work! Made our day!!! We love you sweet boy.

Now, for pictures!!!!
