Week 25

otal weight gain/measurements: So, I´ve managed to contain my weight this week and haven´t gained anything since last week but I am sure that little boy inside is growing because I feel him tumbling all the time. 
Maternity clothes: That tummy is out there for the world to see. 
Stretch marks: Thank god nothing yet. 
Sleep: Crazy dreams. Last night Dr. Taub tried to hustle money from me. 
Best moment this week: My SIL, the godmother, bought us a leather rocking chair and brought it over on Saturday. I can´t wait to take it for a test drive. Also going to the public and private health clinics to get more info on my pre-labor courses.

24 Weeks

How far along? 24.5 weeks! Wednesday will be 25. 

Total weight gain/measurements: Probably about 8 kilos. I got my appetite back finally a couple of weeks ago and have been a baking freak! Cupcakes galore and not to mention my strong craving for bacon and eggs. Having to lay off the colesterol after my gain of 3 kilos last month.
Maternity clothes: For sure, already on my 2nd round of jeans.
Stretch marks: Not yet, been using Elasticine every day after the shower.
Sleep: Not too bad minus the need to pee in the mornings.
Best moment this week: Going with my in-laws to order the Moises, our first piece of baby furniture! It was very nice to have warmer weather this weekend after the horrible rain and cold we had this week. It was hard to believe that just last weekend it snowed. Too bad it wasn´t as warm as it needed to be to eat on the terrace by the water, sick with flu today! 
Museums are free the first Sunday of the month so we hiked up to the CosmoCaixa to have some fun and experiment in this science museum. Afterwards we made our way down to the beach to have lunch, then walked back home. I think we may have overdone it just a little...

Miss anything? I miss the unpasteurized cheese and glasses of wine to warm me up on winter days. Unrelated to pregnancy, I miss when Barça used to win their matches.
Movement: Lots of kicks after meals!
Food cravings: Anything with yogurt. Been making pancakes made with yogurt in the mornings and recently discovered muffins with yogurt filling.

Anything making you queasy or sick? Occasional indigestion. Today I am sick with the flu, but I totally asked for after spending the past 3 days outdoors. Not to mention Pilar, Laia and Emma have all had it this week.

Gender: Boy!!!

Labour signs: None. Phew.
Symptoms:   My skin has cleared up a lot, no pimples in months but instead I have a bit of rosacea on my cheeks. IT totally just looks like nice sun kiss though =) My belly has gotten really hard and I can feel that things are starting to move toward the bellybutton. Also, I have had lots of energy and been in a really good mood for the past month or so. The downside i sthat my legs feel tired and heavy and having to invest in comfort shoes. 

Belly button in or out? In!
Engagement ring on or off? Off during the night, maybe I´m retaining a bit of water:)
Happy or moody most of the time: So happy:)
Looking forward to:  Always hearing the heartbeat at visits and looking forward to our 4D visit.
