Right now I’m at the beach with my mom for a girl’s trip – 5 days in Florida! We spent a bit of time in Seaside today; it’s such a sweet little town, with so many specialty shops carrying items that would look perfect in my home! Just look at the shutter on this shop…it would be perfect on my living room wall!
How Far Along – 25 Weeks
Size of Baby – A Cauliflower? I just don’t know about that!
Gender – Boy
Total Weight Gain – 2 pounds! Got the report from the doc on Wednesday.
What I Miss – Having more energy. Being able to sleep on my back, though the entire night.
Cravings – Nothing out of the ordinary.
Symptoms – This hot, humid Florida weather has had my feet feeling very hot and a bit swollen some evenings.
Maternity Clothes – I finally broke down and bought some undershirts at Target. Why are maternity clothes twice the price? These certainly weren’t’t twice the size, only a bit longer!
Worst Part of Pregnancy this Week – Not being able to stand the heat, and having to cut my morning beach walks down quite a bit. In fact, this morning I woke up a little too late to even attempt it. The sun was already blazing!
Best Part of Pregnancy this Week – Honestly, it’s felt nice to get honked at while walking down the street, only to have the occupants of the car stop short and yell, “Oh, you’re pregnant!” when they see me from the side! So amusing and encouraging! On a more serious note, I’ve loved the mommy conversations that my mom and I have had together these last few days!
