Woohoo!! We’re 25 weeks along today monkey!! A whole quarter! 🙂
I can tell that you are grow, grow, growing because my tummy skin is so tight and feels stretched to the max already. So crazy! No stretch marks so far (phew). Also, now when I sit down, I feel a little short of breath because I have like zero torso and when I’m seated it pushes you up into my diaphragm which then pushes on my lungs. It’s such a crazy feeling and I know you still have to get SO much bigger! Where will you go?? I’m hoping out and not up into my ribs haha.
Here’s what you look like on the outside this week!
Symptoms: Sciatica, tender breasts, hungry, fetal movement, furry tummy, emotional/hormonal, prego brain (I seriously cannot focus on anything these days!), soft bendy joints, linea negra!
Weight: 10.5lbs (look at us!! we made it past 10 woohoo!)
Here’s what babycenter.com has to say about your development this week:
Head to heels, your baby now measures about 13 1/2 inches. Her weight — a pound and a half — isn’t much more than an average rutabaga, but she’s beginning to exchange her long, lean look for some baby fat. As she does, her wrinkled skin will begin to smooth out and she’ll start to look more and more like a newborn. She’s also growing more hair — and if you could see it, you’d now be able to discern its color and texture.
Another week behind us my love. It’s really flying by now. Keep on dancing my monkey princess! I love you so so so much, never forget that!
