25 weeks

How far along? 25 weeks.
Total weight gain/loss: About +/-17 lbs.
Maternity clothes? Indeed.

Stretch marks? My worst news to report. Leftie (that would be my left boob) has been stretchie stricken. Is there no mercy?!

Sleep: A little better, but I wake up a lot and struggle to get comfortable. I'm also a portable heater when I sleep. :)

Best moment this week: Passing the 1hr Glucose!

Movement: Yep. Had a few decent flips too! Mother- & Sister-in-laws got to feel a few kicks this weekend.

Food cravings: Still sweets. Think a gallon of chewy sprees. Mmm...

Gender: Thinking girl.

Labor Signs: Still with the Braxton Hicks, but cervix checked and NO movement on the active labor front, thank GOD.

Belly Button in or out? Barely innie.

What I miss: I already miss my kittie Miles. (More on that below.)

What I am looking forward to: Seeing my mom & dad and dad's family this weekend! And getting the nursery painted. :)

Weekly Wisdom: I'm hard pressed to come up with anything this week.

Milestones: Passing the glucose, and nearly onto the 6th month!

Onto the sad news. We've decided that the time has come to put our kitteh Miles to sleep. He's been ill for a number of years with both pre-cancerous inflammatory bowel disease and inflammatory rhinitis, and after this past weekend, he's grown ill enough where we can't justify prolonging his life anymore. He's such a sweet boy and does not deserve this, but we don't see an alternative. We love him so much, and he is more than part of the family. He has been my best buddy for the past 8 years, and he will be sorely missed. We'll more than likely be making his final appointment at the vet tomorrow or the next.

We'll miss you, my sweet sweet boy.


  1. You look beautiful! I am also very sorry about the is a hard thing to do.

  2. That dress is too cute on you!! This post is cute/happy/sad. :( Sorry about Miles. I would ball my eyes out, but it's the best thing you can do. Life, death, one big circle.
