Baby Gardner-25 weeks

How far along? 25 weeks
Total weight gain. 17 pounds total
Baby Development.  Baby G is about 1.5 lbs and his hands are fully developed by this week, fingerprints and all!
Maternity Clothes? You bet. Bought a few pair of maternity skinny jeans from Gap, which I love-so comfy, and a maternity dress too. No more squeezing into cloths, too uncomfortable. Also, the work scrubs are getting a little snug, but I am hoping to make them work for at least another month.
Stretch Marks? Still clear
Sleep? Sleep is good, but keep wanting to turn on to my back, which is a no no.
Best Moment of the week? Laying on the couch and SEEING a kick!!
Symptoms? I get full soooo fast. If I eat anywhere near the amount at one sitting that I used to  pre-preggo, I am so uncomfortable. Also the muscle cramp in my butt is back with a vengeance. 
Food cravings?Nothing in particular. I did get one hard core craving of carrot cake cheesecake, but it luckily went away after a nights sleep.
Miss anything? Nope
Movement? All the time, he is very active 
Gender ? Little baby boy
Belly Button in or out? In, but working it's way out.
Goals for upcoming week? Paint the nursery
Looking Forward to?  Nearing the third trimester, I am very anxious to meet my little man
Thoughts?Word to the wise, if your in your second or third trimester, DO NOT ATTEMPT TO SHOP AT A NON-MATERNITY STORE. It will make you cry and power walk to the nearest Auntie Annie's pretzel shop(just guessing, ahhem). If you try to get something fitted, it doesnt fit right, if you go for something 'roomy' it makes your body look like a blob. I made the mistake of trying on dresses and a few skirts at Express, bad idea.
