25 weeks

how far along? 25 weeks 1 day
total weight gain: 20 pounds. anyone know a good pregancy diet? (we can probably start with no more oreos...)
babys size/development this week: "an average rutabaga". what? ive never seen a rutabaga, let alone know what one is. another website says eggplant, thats better. we were told last week at the ultrasound that the baby weighs 1 lb 9 oz, the head is 6 cm and is still in the 55th percentile. i also passed my gestational diabetes test (which i oddly loved the orange glucose drink, go figure).
maternity clothes: got new running capris and a new tank top for florida
sleep: still feeling good. my back is killing me though (more so at bed time) and i usually fall asleep with a heating pad on 
miss anything? running. my favorite jeans. all my hoodies. 
movement? so much movement all the time still. we started playing some instrumental music before bed and the piano and violin make the baby twist and turn. as much as it kinda creeped me out at first, it really makes me sad for people who are not able to experience this.
food cravings? nothing new. sorry folks, still no pickles.
anything making you queasy or sick? luckily no... especially after work on saturday. lots of blood (doesnt usually make me queasy anyway but im lucky i still felt ok). oh, and this... (thanks michelle)

best moment of the week: got to see lots of friends at the race and felt great on my run yesterday.  
name ideas: i decided it was kinda silly that we werent telling people what the names were that we had picked out... they are nothing weird, different, obscure, and i dont care if people think they are stupid or if they have a story about why we shouldnt name them what we picked out.. so i asked ty if we could tell people and he said no. i said "is this payback for me not wanting to find out the sex of the baby?" and he said "yup." haha, sorry! 
nursery: nothing new, but i still love my rocker. currently searching etsy for wall decals (i reaaaalllly want something like this one but $85? really?
wedding rings on or off? on
mood: feeling good overall
daddy is feeling: he now thinks that were having a boy and has decided its funny to tell me its going to weigh over 10 pounds.
workouts this week: 19.1 miles biking, 9.35 miles running, 7.5 miles walking


  1. Did he read the grossest blog post ever? Is that why he's joking about the 10lb baby? #notfunny great to see you yesterday!!!
