25 Week Update

I'm now 25 weeks along & Reese is 13 1/2 inches long & weighs about a pound & a half at the size of a rutabaga. Um yeah, must say I've never held a rutabaga in my life so I really can't relate!

How am I feeling? All in all I've felt pretty good this week. I've had more heartburn than usual but Pepcid has been helping. Luckily my energy level has been up because it has been a whirlwind of a week & work has been keeping me hopping! Reesey Piecey has been moving & grooving like crazy, especially at night & I can feel her kicks quickly getting higher & higher in my belly. Before I know it she'll be wedged under my ribs!

Any new changes this week? Monday was my one-hour glucose tolerance test which ended up being a pain in the butt. Luckily I was able to take it at my hospital so I stayed on the clock & sat & worked on a computer as I waited. I had to check in at 7:20 & didn't end up getting out of there until 10am. What a joke! And I had to go straight into a meeting afterwards so I ate nothing but a cereal bar until lunchtime... BOO! They took a tube of blood before & after I drank the tasty glucose solution & the nurse who took the first vial bruised the hell out of my arm. It hurt really bad as she did it & I couldn't straighten my arm without pain after. The bruise has only gotten uglier & uglier as the days have passed but at least it doesn't hurt anymore. The good news is that I passed the glucose test!

Here's my beautiful bruise! It's a lot uglier than it appears in this picture..

Weight gain? 6.5 pounds

  1. You look so cute! Don't you love this stage -- where you've got that cute belly, are noticeably pregnant, but still not to that huge stage yet? It's the best. Enjoy!

  2. Reesey Piecy- I love it! I hate getting my blood drawn, the last time I did the nurse hurt me so bad that my bicep muscle would "catch" on something, and act weird every time I used it. I swear I thought she did permanent damage. I'm glad you're having a good week! And congrats on passing your test!
