25 Weeks


Pregnancy Highlights:

How Far Along: 25 Weeks
Size of baby: Hannah is about the size of an eggplant
Total Weight Gain: Still holding strong at 11 lbs
Maternity Clothes: All maternity pants and some regular/mostly maternity tops
Gender: GIRL!!! Hannah Lee Townsend
Movement: LOTS of movement!  She moves a lot while I'm at work and when I'm laying down at night the most.  Sometimes I really wonder what she's doing in there to cause so much movement!
Sleep: Sleep has been pretty good.  I'm exhausted by the time I get home from work every day but there is so much to do to get ready for Miss Hannah that I don't get too much down time.
Cravings: Sweets
What I Miss:  Probably just sleeping through the night and not having pains when moving too quickly.  I think I forget I'm pregnant sometimes...
Symptoms: Just the same stuff as before pretty much, I'm just really feeling bigger!  I told Austin he was going to need to go to the grocery store with me from now on to push the cart and load/unload the bags into the car because it WORE ME OUT!!  I'm getting a lot more winded and tired now with the heart issue so it makes doing normal tasks seem like big tasks and I usually need to rest a lot.  Austin's parents came into town this weekend and we worked on Hannah's room and I had to quit in the afternoon because I was having so many Braxton Hicks contractions.  OUCH!  I talked to my Dr Saturday night and she said if I was having more than four an hour then I would need to go to Labor & Delivery at the hospital to get checked out which freaked me out a bit but I just laid on the couch and drank a bunch of water the rest of the night and they slowed down.  I was so sore today from having them for several hours yesterday that it hurt to walk. :(  I guess I overdid it... 
Best moment this week: Seeing her moving around so much and getting her room done!  All we have left is getting some wall decorations! :)

Ooh, the BH contractions scare me - what do they feel like? Is it obvious when you're having them? Glad you have help so you don't over do it.
