How far along? 25 weeks
Baby is the size of: A head of cauliflower
Maternity clothes? Need more cami's and tank tops!!! I noticed this week that a couple of my tanks were a little too short in the belly...
Rings on or off? On... yay!!
|This tank top has pretty much reached it's capacity|
Belly Button: It's half innie and half outie... M says it's cute. I still think it's weird.
Exercise: Had some back pain this week and that slowed me down... only got to work out 3 times this week. I am learning some labor prep exercises and trying to remember to do them each day - Kegels, squats, cat/cow stretches, sitting 'tailor' style (I always called it Indian style) and practicing good posture to help keep the baby (and my back) in alignment.
Food cravings: I had a very specific craving for a sandwich this week... I'll blog about that (with pictures!) later this week. I've also been craving butter and bacon.
|My main man!!|
Best moment of the week: Postponing the glucose test until my next appointment.
Weight gain: 17 pounds total
Symptoms: Achy back and fatigue.
Mood? Still cranky at work... And I feel sort of clingy...
I learned ... that I should be eating about 100 grams of protein each day. Whoa! I don't know how much I have been eating, but I'm pretty sure it's not that much. I'm looking for ways to up the protein content in my diet (without using a highly processed whey protein powder). Any suggestions would be appreciated!
Looking forward to: Maternity leave. :-)
