25 weeks

^^^ These were taken last Friday so just imagine my belly protruding just a bit more ;) ^^^

How far along? 25 weeks

Weight gain? 19 pounds -- is this normal? I feel like all the other blogger's who did a weekly baby profile had only gained a measily 12-15 pounds at this point. Either I am a whlae or I call BS! Also in the weight department, my belly is so HEAVY! I can definitely tell it is full of fluid -- hard to explain and really strange to experience. I don't know why I assumed it would be light but I did. I am so naive!
Maternity clothes? Still loving my stretchy pants but I have to say getting cute outfits together is becoming more of a challenge. All my shirts are becoming a little too short in the front and I would much prefer to stay in my pajamas all day long.
Stretch marks? Not yet but my skin is itching like craze-balls!
Sleep? This has been SO frustrating! I don't know if I am in the beginning stages of nesting or what, but I find myself overly tired yet unable to sleep. My body is exhausted and all I want to do is close my eyes but my mind is racing about EVERYTHING! Please tell me this is normal!?
Movement? LOTS! I love feeling her wiggle around in my belly. It brings so much joy to my day!
Food cravings? Oh my heavens -- I have eaten an absurd amount of Clementines and/or Tangerines this past month.
Anything making you queasy or sick? Foul {or even mildly displeasing} smells. My poor husband can't eat anything with flavor without me complaining of his breath. :(
Wedding rings on or off? On :)
Happy or Moody most of the time? This week I have been pretty exhausted from the lack of sleep -- I'm not going to lie it can make me pretty grumpy.
Looking forward to? Making more progress on the nursery. I am in the gathering stage -- I feel a little bit like a hoarder. And, my next doctor's appointment on the 21st. It's time for the glucose test, which I am not looking forward to, but I also will have an ultrasound and I am certainly looking forward to seeing our baby girl!

i'm pretty sure a healthy weight gain is at least 20 pounds but it also depends on your BMI?? ....some people gain 10, others gain nearing really just depends like everything else that comes with pregnancy i think.... heres a good reference

You look completely adorable! Don't worry about the weight....I know it's hard not too but some people gain more at the beginning and then taper off and some go steadily up on and on and on. Eat healthy exercise and you and baby will be fine! As long as you take care of yourself it will come off once she's here. :) Enjoy it to the fullest!
