How far along: 25 weeks and 4 days
How big is Baby-A: Cauliflower (some websites said rutabaga...but what in the world is that?!?!)
Total weight gain: I haven't checked lately, but at my last OB appt, I had gained 1 pound. So I was somewhere around 142. Yeah! I started this whole thing at 137. My next appt is June 1st. We'll see if I've blown up since then.
Sleep: Pretty much non-existent between the hours of 9-12pm. Once in a blissful moment, I fall into a DEEP sleep and almost nothing bothers me...including people calling my hubby's cell which he has to keep turned on due to Army rules.
Best moment of the week: This week I've been able to talk/or email about coming home WITHOUT breaking down into a fit of tears...three times! Up till this week...I couldn't even think about it without crying.
Food cravings: SWEETS!
Nausea - Gone, except for rare moments at night or in the morning when I try and get out of bed to fast.
Hunger - It seems like I'm hungry all the time. Trying to do better so I don't have junk-food weight gain. Easier said than done.
Heartburn - Oh boy! No matter what I do or eat, it's always there.
Skin - Blemish-free skin disappeared in what seems to have been a long...long...long time ago (start of pregnancy). I've tried all kinds of different cleansers and lotions and nothing keeps the breakout buggers away from my face. I also have the "prego-scar" on both my cheeks that looks like mascara running down my face after a good cry.
Exercise: I'm trying to exercise three times a week. My joints have been killing me, but I keep plugging on.
Movement: Baby-A has been very athletic. She'll start kicking and punching and this can last up to 4 hours. I've tried all kinds of things to calm her down, but the calm only lasts for a few minutes before Baby-A starts up again.
Stretch-marks: (Knock on wood) so far I only have them on one boob. Weird, I know. It was a very tearful moment when I noticed the marks, but hubby keeps reassuring me that they'll go away in time. I've been drinking a TON of water and applying lotion as if my life depends on it.
Belly Button: The "turkey timer" is close to popping out. I keep pushing my belly button back in, but I'm not sure that does any good.
