I’m almost finished with the second part of what happened with the doctor and with Pickles, so in the meantime, here’s another Bumpdate!
Last month she was a “pumpkin” and this month she’s a “baby turkey.” I saw this shirt online and couldn’t resist buying it. That reminds me that I should look for a Christmas shirt!

How far along: 25 weeks (+ 2 days)
Fun facts: If she has hair (I was a bald baby), it’s starting to grow and if I could see it, then I could see what color and texture it is! Her equilibrium is also kicking in, so she can distinguish right side up from upside down.
How big is the baby: She’s around 13 1/2 inches and weighs about a pound and a half—the length of an eggplant and a rutabaga (I actually don’t even know what that is; I should look it up).
Sleep: Naps are back. I feel somewhat sleepy when I wake up in the mornings and then I crash in the afternoon for at least a half hour, if not more.
Best moment of the week: Getting the all clear from the high-risk doctor 🙂 (more on that tomorrow once I finish the post). Also, getting to see her again—something that will never get old. The doctor kept pressing the ultrasound wand and poking her, and she didn’t like it one bit. Little Pickles would punch the wand and I could see it on the screen and feel it at the same time! Love that she already knows how to defend herself 🙂
Food Cravings: ugh, just more sweets. In my almost-29 years I’ve never had a sweet tooth. Maybe a during “that time of the month,” but that’s assumed. Now it’s all the time. I’m trying to eat more protein and balance it out at least. I’m also taking my glucose test next week, so I’m trying really hard to cut down on the sugar.
Yup! It’s interesting, because some days she’ll be really, really active, and then she’ll be somewhat mellow the next day.
Gender: GIRL! It was triple confirmed last week—bring on the pink!
What I really miss: Nothing much this week.
Most worried about: Doing too much. I’m starting to really feel it when I do too much during the day. She’s sitting really low, which makes things very uncomfortable sometimes and the only way I can find relief is to prop my feet up and just relax.
I’m looking forward to: Feeling her move every day. Every time I feel her I practically stop what I’m doing to enjoy it.
Anything else? I used to be loyal to TUMS, but that was before my doctor introduced me to Pepcid. I’m in love.
