25 Weeks

{Uh oh...going to need a new white shirt for this photos soon...I am not going to have my belly hanging out.}

How Far Along?  25 weeks. Just 15 more until we meet Baby Lilly! Does it not feel like I just posted 24 weeks like yesterday?

How Big is Baby?  According to my "What to Expect" app, it says she should way around 1.7 lbs and be around 9 in. long. I'd agree with that based on how much I feel her moving around in there...everywhere!

Total Weight Gain:  Probably the same at about 17 lbs. 

Maternity Clothes? Everyday.

Stretch Marks? Nope. I never put lotion on either. I really need to start doing that or I'm going to regret that. I hate the feeling of lotion with clothes over. Gross. So I never put it on. For a while I was good about it but then I got lazy again. I also hate the way the lotion I have smells. 

Sleep: Thankfully, this week was good. I always wake up once to pee, even if I go right before bed, but I've been able to fall back asleep right away thankfully. Last night was a whole other story though...worst night's sleep of my whole life. Or..lack of I should say. I was up from 12:30am-5:00am. 

Best Moment this Week: LB is moving a ton. I'm getting more comfortable with it and now it's just fun. She even moves around while I'm dancing now. She likes music, this I know. 

Miss Anything: Being able to dance without feeling like I'm going to die. Being able to squat down in what we call in the dancing world "a bug". (crouched down with your hands in front of you and head down) Hurts so bad. Doesn't work anymore. Dancing is just plain hard. Not in a good way. I'm in the midst of choreographing all of our competition routines for next year and I am doing all I can to not let my belly get in my way (sorry, Lilly...Mommy has to work.) Matt keeps yelling at me because sometimes I get into it too much and forget and may have did a back roll in the living room tonight. Weeeeeeee!!! Ha! Again...sorry Lilly.  

Movement: She's a movin' and a shakin'! It makes me so happy that when I put music on she jams in my tummy. She's actually rolling all around right now. I've been choreographing a solo to "Real Wild Child" and I was mixing the music the other night and she was going crazy. I loved it. I tell myself she's dancing. 

Food Cravings: Jamba Juice, yum! I am sipping a Mango A Go Go right now :) 

Anything making you queasy or sick: I have had zero interest in anything with avocado. Sounds so gross to me. I usually love it.

Gender: Baby Girl.

Symptoms: Feeling good this week.

Looking Forward to: Too soon to say that I'm looking forward to meeting her? ...
