15 more to go!

How far along? 25 weeks!

Total weight gain/loss: 21 #'s total - Just found out last night.

Stretch marks? Nope not yet!

Sleep: Sleeping great with my body pillow!

Best moment this week: Corey finishing the nursery and my mom getting us our shower present early: The bedding!!!!!

Movement: Kicking, punching, elbowing, somersaults - apparently Brody takes the 2am Turbokick class at Gym a la Leannes belly!

Food cravings: Right now all I want is a good breakfast. But as always, grapefruit.

Labor Signs: Nope. (Lets keep it that way for ...um... another 10 weeks at least, please!)

Belly Button in or out? Flat, but not out yet!

What I miss: Not really until this weekend, but a good glass of wine.

What I am looking forward to: Being done with these Dr.s appointments - Being in labor and having our baby. Seriously, I cannot wait. - Coreys Surprise party. - My baby Shower! Spring! Grilling tonight!

Weekly Wisdom: I've got nothing.

Milestones: Brody is doing great at my OB appt last night.

How big is baby: Your baby is about nine inches long and more than a pound and a half in weight this week. And don't look now (as if you could), but your baby's skin is turning pinker as small blood vessels form under the skin and fill with blood. Lungs and nostrils are also growing at this stage of fetal development
Weeks 25-28 -

How big am I: In my new Mat. Scrubs!! These are like the sisterhood of the traveling maternity pants. They have been passed around from 3 different girls that I work with now!

Best Corey QOTW: "My new favorite thing to do is play music for Brody and feel him kick" AWWWWW!!!

On another note - I don't feel like writing a seperate post for this, but our plan on asking for a c-section got shot down last night. Apparently a c-section will raise the pressure in my head just as much as active pushing will. So.... my OB talked to Corey and I about the spinal tap procedure, explained the risks and benefits, told us it was totally safe for the baby as long as they do not use flouroscpoy, and is right now pulling some strings so I can just get it done by this new neuro and not have to go for another 3 hour long Neuro workup - for the third time. Whatever. The good news is, is that if they find nothing, which they suspect the wont, I get to have a normal labor, with pushing and everything. If they do, I will be HEAVILY drugged up (with an epi) and allow labor to happen naturally, and when the baby crowns to use the vaccuum to asssit. (sorry if TMI) .... So I guess we'll see.
