So I'm not wearing makeup and look like a freak, but I hope you get a laugh anyways. We went to meet the midwife today and it went great! She is really great and we all hit it off right away. I go in next week for an ultrasound to see if my placenta has moved up yet. If not, no biggie they will recheck at a later date. Baby's heart rate was 144bpm and it was moving like crazy, it actually kicked at the doppler, it was pretty funny.
How far along?: 25 weeks
•Current Weight: 139
•Total weight gain: 19 pounds, I am soooo happy with that. I thought it would be way more from all the chocolate I have been inhaling. I'm up just 3 pounds from last month.
•How big is baby?: about 11 inches and 1 1/4 lbs according to what the website and books say it should be this week.
•Maternity clothes?: Anytime I'm at a store I have to look to see what's new in the maternity section. This mama has to be styling at all times.
•Stretch marks?: None, yay. But the buddah is soooo itchy
•Sleep?: Up all night going pee and then worrying if I'm sleeping ok b/c I wake up with numb hands sometimes from laying on one side so much.
•Movement?: Karate chops all day and night. I love it.
•Food cravings?: usually chocolate after lunch but good organic fruit is the best.
•Labor signs?: Zilch
•Belly button in or out?: It's coming out more and more, especially when I laugh it pokes in and out. It's pretty amusing to watch. Today I just stared and observed my buddah in the mirror for a while and was just in awe of the changes.
•What I miss: Nothing much really, just a martini.
•What I'm looking forward to: my ultrasound next week to see if my placenta decided to stop being stubborn and move.
•Milestone: I made it past vitality day (v-day) at 24 weeks, if the baby came early the doctors would do everything they could to save the baby because it is considered viable.
