Baby Bump Update - 4th edition

Hey everybody, it's time for another baby bump update!  It's been only 3 weeks since my last update but it seems like forever.  You can read the previous 1st, 2nd and 3rd bump updates if you like.

Dr. visits:
I'm 25 weeks pregnant now.  I just went back to the Dr. on Friday.  I didn't see the Dr. because she was in surgery and I didn't want to wait hours for her to be back, so I just saw the nurse.  My blood pressure is normal and the babies heartbeat is strong.  I took the glucose test on Friday as well.  I've heard horror stories about that test and it was pretty gross, but not totally unbearable.  The worst part was having to drink it all in 5 minutes, that's what started to gag me.  I haven't heard the results yet, but I'll let ya know.  I've gained a total of 11 pounds so far but I think it would have been more if I hadn't have gotten really sick twice in a row.  I told you about how I got a kidney infection and before that I came down with pleurisy, so that was fun. 

I've been looking for some maternity clothes, but really I don't like them!  The stores are offering stuff that is SO not my style.  I'm going to have to buy some short sleeve stuff soon because it's getting too hot for the stuff I do have.  I just bought a pair of maternity shorts that are cute, so that's good!


23 weeks - Taken at my sisters wedding!

24 weeks

25 weeks

I've been sleeping pretty well, except for the 3 or 4 am wake up call to use the ladies room.  Also, I keep getting cramps in my calves in the middle of the night.  I think I scared Curtis half to death, one night I got a really bad cramp and I shot up in bed and was all like "OW! holy cow that hurts" and his alarm went off at the exact same time.  He must have thought the world was ending.  :) 

I'm feeling him move so much more lately.  Some of his moves are actually visible now from the outside which is weird but very cool.  I'm not sure I notice any specific times he's more active but it doesn't seem to last too long before he gets tired and goes back to sleep (I assume).  He liked going to church yesterday and was moving a lot, Curtis got to feel a couple of good kicks.  My friend Mandy likes to wake him up to make him move, so she'll be responsible for making him take naps after he gets here.  ;) 

Other News:
My belly button has pretty much disappeared.  It only took a few weeks for it to go from normal to flat, and Curtis was doing a daily check on it.  Haha.  I bought a few really cute outfits for the baby which is so exciting and he's been getting cute clothes from his aunts and grandma's already.  We still have so much to do to prepare for his arrival so we're going to have to buckle down and get a lot done - and soon!  I feel the time is ticking away.  (Isn't that a song? Haha).

I hope everyone has a great week and I hope we all stay well, no more sickness!
