Bumpdate {Weeks 21-25}

Now that I'm almost 26 weeks (tomorrow!), time for another bump date from the past month!

Size of baby: Napa cabbage
Weight gain: I can't believe I have already gained 25 pounds. It is what it is...
Maternity clothes: Already sick of them! Looking for more shorts and dresses…it is so hot!
Gender: I’m thinking girl this week.

Movement: Yes and Ella felt the baby move 10 days ago for the first time! Baby moves the most when I am hungry and/or if I am drinking something.
Cravings: Berries/fruit, popsicles, ice cream/yogurt, Greek food, pasta, Fruity Pebbles.
Symptoms: Sciatic nerve pain coming in strong this week. Every time I get up after sitting, it’s pretty painful. Also, I’ve had some cramping (Braxton Hicks?) and tightness on my stomach. I also cannot stand up for more than 15-20 minutes; my feel hurt so bad!
Workouts: Still running 2 miles, 4 times a week at 10:00 pace. Who knows how long this will continue.
 If I'm being honest, I really am still running because it gives me a solid 20 minutes to catch up on my shows on our DVR!
Sleep: Good, but getting up at least once to pee.
Labor signs: Nope.
ISO: Baby looked GREAT at the ultrasound this week! Heart rate was around 157 and PSV was 30…which is a super low MoM of .96. The lowest it’s been! Doctor also discussed getting Trav’s blood tested again and/or testing baby to see if he/she is negative for the D antigen. 
What I miss: Being skinny. And WINE.
Best moment this week: Seeing baby again on the monitor! The ultrasound tech tried to put it on 3D, but it was still a little too early for that. Still it was really cool to kind of see baby in 3D!

Looking forward to:  Putting the crib together and making some more progress on the nursery!
