25 weeks- only (about) 15 to go! Yikes!

 Fourth of July with Bro-in-law and niece in the background.
 Having fun with machine gun in Nauvoo

How far along? 25 weeks!!       
Baby's size? 13.6-14.8 inches, 1.5-2.2 lb. We're now doing ranges as babies vary in size, I guess... but it's as big as a cauliflower!
Total weight gain:  30 lbs but Ms. Doctor told me today at my appt that she's not worried about the weight gain as it's probably all in my feet.  Yay for swollen feet!
Maternity clothes? Yep!  
Sleep: Some nights good, some nights not so good, but we've been traveling. Hopefully things will be better now that I'm back in my super comfy bed. 

Best moment(s) this past week: Playing with my niece and nephew in Iowa!  They're getting so BIG!  And I love that one loves to smile and wave at me (sometimes she'll let me hold her) and the other says my name (when prompted, but it's so great!) and is very insistent that I hang out with him in his pillow fort :o)

Miss Anything?  Not having weird restrictions- hung out with some friends on Saturday that are newlyweds and the first ones married in their families.  It was a bit awkward explaining all the things I needed and couldn't have...

Movement: He's still moving around lots, but still can't feel it on the outside. Poor Nathan is still waiting to feel it!

Anything making you queasy or sick: Nothing much this week.  Just can't stuff myself- I eat a moderate sized meal and then eat again 60 minutes later.  Speaking of which, it's been about an hour after dinner- time for a snack!

Cravings: None really, but I am quite loving chicken this week- so yummy!

Labor Signs: Had a sharp pain on Saturday evening in the tummy- maybe Braxton Hicks contractions??

Gender: BOY! 

Symptoms: Swollen feet and hands, frequently tired, ALWAYS hungry!  Man, I'm eating every 1-2 hours!

Belly Button in or out? In, but getting more shallow!

Wedding rings on or off? All are off (such swollen fingers!), but my sister-in-law Camberley makes beautiful jewelry and she's going to make me a bigger ring.  Yay!
Happy or Moody most of the time: Mostly happy!  Yay!
Looking forward to: Resting this week!  Working on the baby room (right now it's several shades of pink...).  Maybe getting a massage this week??
