25-26 Week Bumpdate!

 25 Weeks & 5 Days

How Far Along? Weeks 25 & 26
 Size of Baby P? English Hothouse Cucumber (ok?!?)
This week's major developments:
The network of nerves in your baby's ears is better developed and more sensitive than before. He may now be able to hear both your voice and your partner's as you chat with each other. He's inhaling and exhaling small amounts of amniotic fluid, which is essential for the development of his lungs. These so-called breathing movements are also good practice for when he's born and takes that first gulp of air. And he's continuing to put on baby fat. He now weighs about a pound and two-thirds and measures 14 inches (an English hothouse cucumber) from head to heel. If you're having a boy, his testicles are beginning to descend into his scrotum — a trip that will take about two to three days.

Maternity Clothes? Still loving dresses and maxi dresses!
 Weight Gain? Feeling big lately, I think I've put on a few pounds since last Dr's appointment!
Stretch Marks/belly button?None and belly button flat most days...
Gender?Momma's BOY!
Sleep?Still waking up for hours most nights... maybe 2 nights a week I am sleeping and only waking up to use the potty!
Food Cravings?Still loving peanut butter and milk.... just loving to eat! ALWAYS HUNGRY!
What I Miss? I am having acid reflux every time I eat and it kicks into high gear at night! TUMS are by my bed! 
What I am loving? Preparing for little man's arrival!
Movement? Starting to see his feet and hands poke through even more! Feeling him roll a lot!
Best Moment(s) of the Week and other random updates? 
  • Got a lot done in his nursery! And lost his crib sheet while shopping for curtains:( Very sad and I have to order another one soon. 
  • I have been sorting his goodies and seeing what we need! 
  • Finishing up the school year and ready for summer!!!!!

23-24 Week BUMPDATE!

 23 Weeks and 5 days
(Forgot to take 24 week pic w/ my sticker.... so sad! That's what I get for nesting and organizing so much I couldn't see them!)

How Far Along?23 weeks and 5 days
 Size of Baby P? Ear of Corn
This week's major developments:
Your baby's growing steadily, having gained about 4 ounces since last week. That puts him at just over a pound. Since he's almost a foot long (picture an ear of corn), he cuts a pretty lean figure at this point, but his body is filling out proportionally and he'll soon start to plump up. His brain is also growing quickly now, and his taste buds are continuing to develop. His lungs are developing "branches" of the respiratory "tree" as well as cells that produce surfactant, a substance that will help his air sacs inflate once he hits the outside world. His skin is still thin and translucent, but that will start to change soon.

Maternity Clothes? All maternity pants, I am still wearing my regular shirts but also maternity shirts; I LOVE maxi dresses because I don't have to worry anything, SO COMFY!  Mainly buying a size up in dresses, which is what I plan to live in all summer!
 Weight Gain? 16 POUNDS! AHHHH!!!!
Stretch Marks/belly button?None, and belly button hasn't popped out like I thought it was, it's just flat right now;)
Gender?Momma's BOY!
Sleep?Most nights I am still waking up 3 to 4 hours, there have been 2 that I can think of that I actually got up to use the restroom and fell right back to sleep, maybe we are making progress!
Food Cravings?Just loving food in general! Peanut butter and milk always sounds yummy!
What I Miss? Still loving pregnancy, my belly is really starting to itch!
What I am loving? Being showered with all of these sweet gifts and getting everything ready for little man's arrival!
Movement? Oh yeh! He loves when mommy eats!
