This week, I finally got my hair chopped off to donate. I’ve been growing it for so long for this cause and was finally able to donate 14-15″ of hair! Let’s just say my hubby hasn’t complained about any ‘hair spiders’ (as he calls them) in the house anymore. lol. Hope you like the new do as much as I do. =)
How far along? 25 Weeks
Baby is the size of a: Cauliflower!
Total weight gain: 11 lbs
Baby is a: Girl!
Stretch marks? Nope. My belly is starting to feel itchy though from all the stretching but I heard it’s best not to scratch.
Symptoms: nothing much…just hungry all the time (and I mean ALL THE TIME!).
Sleep: Sometimes I wake up and find myself sleeping on my back. I quickly have to readjust back to my side because all that pressure on my back overnight causes it to really hurt the next day.
Best moment this week: Meeting up with my girlfriend who just had twin girls and finally getting my baby registry done. I would be so lost in that store without her and would have no idea what I need. Thanks a bunch Meggie!! =) xoxo! I also passed my glucose test which made me feel much better about my recent sugar binge. Sweet!
Worst moment of the week: Experiencing my very first leg cramp. My friends warned me about this and that it was inevitable in the third trimester. It was not fun! ouch! ><
Have you told family and friends: Yes!
Miss Anything? I miss having the energy that I had in second trimester. I did some spring clean up of my closet this week and I think I took two naps in between. That’s just ridiculous. lol.
Movement: So much!! I spend about 5-10 minutes each night just watching my belly move. It’s kind of nice to have a few minutes of the day where I’m only concentrating on her.
Food Cravings: Still tropical fruits (papaya, mangoes, pineapples) and ofcourse, the protein. I also think my sweet tooth is beginning to come back out of hiding. I had hagen daz ice cream at least three times this week after dinner. The flavours? Peanut butter and chocolate, white chocolate raspberry, and vanilla chocolate almond. mmm! I definitely didn’t eat as much as I usually do when it comes to ice cream though. I had about two scoops as opposed to my usual 3-4. 😉
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope.
Have you started to show yet? Oh yes. My aunt says I don’t look pregnant from the back but when I turn sideways, she says the belly is sticking out!
Belly Button in or out? In, but it’s getting shallower everyday! To be honest, I find this part of pregnancy the most creepiest so far. Something about my belly button popping out makes me shiver. I don’t know why. LOL..
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy! *insert happy dance*
Looking forward to: My hubby’s big 3-0 bash this week, although he says he’s more excited about his daughter’s b-day than his own.
