How Far Along: 25 Weeks!
Baby is the size of: an Eggplant
Total Weight Gain: 17.4 pounds
Sleep: The last two nights have been terrible. I woke up at 4am on Sunday morning and could not go back to sleep. I finally just got up at 5am and started cleaning and preparing for my day.
I thought for sure I'd sleep like a rock on Sunday night, but I actually woke up at 3:30am this time and couldn't go back to sleep. I couldn't get comfortable, but more than that I just felt very awake. I felt like I had slept a full 8 hours and was fine to get up. I finally fell back asleep around 5:30am and slept until 7:15. But my back hurt soooo much getting out of bed. I wonder if it's time to try the tempurpedic mattress in the basement...
Best Moment of the week:
*Chris holding Baby Maddy at our friend's party this weekend. Maddy was cranky when she arrived at the party and didn't really want to be held by anyone other than her mom. But when Chris offered to hold her...this happened and I died.
Maddy stayed in Chris' arms for a large majority of the party and she was content as content could be staying that way. At one point, he handed her back to her mom and she started crying. As soon as Chris took her back, she stopped. It was absolutely hilarious, and my heart was literally breaking into a million pieces over how cute it was.
* My baby shower invitations went out!

Pregnancy Brain - Ok, Pregnancy Brain is real folks. I can't even tell you how many times this week I would look at someone, start a sentence and literally just forget what I was going to say entirely. I'll start out saying something like....
Workouts: Excellent Yoga session!
Mood: General Crankiness on Saturday and Sunday evening. I feel incredibly hungover every morning when I wake up. Otherwise, pretty good.

Reading: Sisterland by Curtis Sittenfeld (Reading for book club)
Blood vessels are developing in the baby's lungs. This week the baby's nostrils (which had been plugged up until now) are starting to open up. This allows the baby to take "practice breaths" though it's really only breathing amniotic fluid.
Linking up with Kristin for Baby Talk Tuesday
