25 Weeks

This week I had a doctors appointment.  Nothing extremely noteworthy to talk about.  My pregnancy is going as close to perfect as it can be and hoping that continues for the 15 weeks (knocking on wood as I type).  I'm measuring right where I should be and haven't had any problems aside from the shoulder pain.  I'm going to the chiro every week and probably will continue to do so until July.  The doctor said that chiropractors are great during pregnancy and my sister-in-law praised it during hers.  I also did the blood glucose test today and find out the results early next week.  I didn't think the drink was too bad (as I heard from others that it is terrible) but the nurse at my last appointment gave me the fruit punch flavor instead of the orange.

Maternity Clothes ~ Going shopping tomorrow!  There are loads of cute spring/summer clothes out and I'm hoping to pick up a bunch of them.  I love the maxi skirts at Express....I'm hoping they're stretchy enough to accommodate an every growing belly.

Sleep ~ Waking up at least once a night, otherwise sleep is going well.  No real problems with falling asleep at night.  I've also been taking naps on the weekend which I haven't been able to do for years.

Best Moment This Week ~  The hubby treated me to Red Lobster today...my taste buds were happy. 

Cravings ~ Hawaiin Punch, quesadilla's, Girl Scout cookies, shrimp, Happy Joe's Pizza - basically anything and everything.

Gender ~ GIRL!

What I look forward to ~ Shopping and making wall decorations for baby girl's room tomorrow!  I'm also looking forward to the Lia Sophia party I'm having as well as my first baby shower in a couple of weeks!

Milestones ~  Baby is the size of a eggplant, weighing in at about 1 1/2 pounds and is 9 inches long.  All baby's senses are beginning to function.  Her nostrils are beginning to open and vocal chords are functioning.  Baby's movements are occuring at regular intervals each day.  Capillaries are forming under the skin and filling the blood.and by weeks end, air sacs lined with capillaries will develop in baby's long to get her ready for her first breath on the outside.
