Week 25 - Clear Fluids and Calamine

Well, this has not been the week of champions.  Not only did the plague of the stomach bug descend on our house (a miserable 18 hours for me and 48 for Greg - somehow Rob got lucky, thank goodness!) but I managed to get Poison Ivy somehow and have been itching to beat the band.  Seriously, am I six or what??  Thankfully, lil Nugget seems to be unaffected as well (kids got good genes!) and is growing like a weed!....

Your Pregnancy: Week 25
Head to heels, your baby now measures about 13 1/2 inches. Her weight — a pound and a half — isn't much more than an average rutabaga, but she's beginning to exchange her long, lean look for some baby fat. As she does, her wrinkled skin will begin to smooth out and she'll start to look more and more like a newborn. She's also growing more hair — and if you could see it, you'd now be able to discern its color and texture.

Total Weight Gain: Up 12 pounds.  Thank goodness...I swear I lost a pound or two on Friday alone but I must be making up for it!  As a fun note, I've gained exactly as much with Nugget as I had with Rob at this point.  How boring am I???

 My Body Belly is gettin bigger!  Someone from work told me I am getting "HUGE" today....news flash, folks, NO WOMAN likes to hear that one.  Yeesh.  Still not maternity clothes yet but I'm into my larger shirts and bought a few maxi skirts that may as well be maternity in all their comfiness (but wearable post baby - SWEET!!)

Cravings: popsicles.  MMMM.  I bought a mold for $2 on ebay and have been making lemonade sicles all week, which are beyond delish.  

Aversions: Nothin. nothin.  Still off bananas and yogurt, but thats a big ole preggo thing for me by now I guess!

Sleep: Not too bad.  Rough when I was sick and Greg, too, but other than that I've had a few solid 6 hour stretches without potty or wake ups.  Sweet.  I'll take what I can get!!

Baby Items Bought/Received: Wallpaper border and some diapers.  WHAT?  $9 for 130 diapers and $10 CVS bucks back = free diapers.  C'mon.  You would have done it too.

Best Baby Moment: Time for bowl movement (not thats not a typo)....When I have a snack at night, Nugget likes to kick my bowl over or make it move on my belly (MOM, get this offa me!)  Cracks me up every time.

Goals: Signed up for another 5k in July - hey, why not?  Seriously, though, the goal this week is to get back on track with house/nugget prep.  Last week killed us both.

Worries:  That damn glucose test is this week.  I freaking hate that drink.   WHY can't they give us a candy bar?  It would be so much tastier, c'mon!  (File this under annoyances, not worries, lol!)

This Week:
Run: 4 miles
Bike: 80 miles
Swim: 2 miles
Total: 86 miles

To Date:
Run: 287.1 miles
Bike: 1396 miles
Swim: 58.5 miles
Total: 1715.6 miles...or, the distance from Rochester NY to Montego Bay, Jamaica.  Ahhh, paradise!
