Week 25

Missed a week again, oops!

Rutabaga (weight)

13 1/2 inches, 1.5 lb

Baby Changes (Source:
He's beginning to exchange his long, lean look for some baby fat. He's also growing more hair - and if you could see it, you'd be able to discern its color & texture.

Best Moment this Week
Last week, Josh & I were able to go out on a date for our anniversary (a few days late). A date is a rare occasion around here, but there is a lovely girl home from college that Elliot loves being around, so we'll be taking advantage of her this summer for sure! We ate some ribs (mmm, MEAT) & just enjoyed good conversation. It was great!

BOY! Jack Wesley.

Jack is starting to ramp up the movement now. He is pretty active at night. The past couple of weeks I had a definite growth spurt (which is why I was cramping) & he moved up (which is nice for my bladder) & is taking advantage of his new found space! He is stretching more, & will occasionally get in some kind of position that hurts... I feel that third trimester coming on!

Food Craving
Cherries! Oh sheesh, they are so expensive. But this week I splurged & have enjoyed them as a daily treat. YUM! I also wanted to make these chocolate chip coconut macaroons that we had every night at our B&B in Maine last month, so I have been enjoying those too.

Yep, getting more uncomfortable! The first time I got up last night I could barely move! I was afraid I'd either get stuck or fall over.

What I am looking forward to
This weekend we are staying in town & have a few fun things planned - we have been really busy lately & have traveled the past two weekends, so I am excited to take it easy & relax a bit!

Fatigue (I have been EXHAUSTED lately), back pain.

Courtney - I did not have gestational diabetes. He is just giving me hints to not gain too much weight (not that I did last time). I think it's just part of his normal speech at the first appointment. ;) You're right! It is depressing! Haha!
