How Far Along: 25 Weeks with Picture and 26 Weeks, 2 Days at press release :)
Total Weight Gain/Loss: Still not 100% sure on this one and I always forget to ask.
Maternity Clothes: Oh yes! I went shopping to get a couple of long dresses and skirts so I don't have to wear jeans unless I just want to. That's been nice - I love dresses and skirts anyway and they are super comfy and breezy! :)
Best Moment This Week: Feeling and seeing Lucy Paige move on the outside! Wednesday afternoon (April 3) I laid down on the bed and felt her kicking/moving really hard so I put my hand on my stomach and felt some really strong movements. It was so weird but at the same time the best thing I've ever felt. I used my phone to get a video of it because TJ was at work. He got to feel her moving around the next night.
Gender: GIRL!!! Lucy Paige Phelps - yay!
Movement: YES!!! She likes to bounce on my bladder - TJ said she'll need a trampoline when she's older.
Food Cravings: Nope - love the shaved ice places though!
Aversions: Still brushing my teeth - I have to sing songs in my head to distract myself. Such a weirdo... Minutemaid Orange Drink - LP didn't like that drink one bit. And she definitely let me know she didn't like it.
What I Miss: Not being poked and pricked when I go to the dr. I had the sugar test today and they had to draw blood. I hate, very strongly hate , needles in my arm. The drink they gave me wasn't bad at all - it was kind of like a flat Sprite that burned a little going down. I had heard horror stories about how nasty the drink is and what not - don't listen to everybody else's advice; I've found them to be wrong for the most part.
Sleep: It's been pretty good - it could be worse so I'm thankful for good rest.
What I'm Looking Forward To: May 2 - my next dr. appt. I'll get to have another ultrasound to make sure fluid levels are good to go and get a glimpse of how much Lucy Paige has grown!
