25 weeks!

How far along? 25 Weeks! Can't believe we only have 15 to go!

Baby's size? Our little miss is the size of an eggplant! About 13-14 1/2 inches and 1.5-2 lbs.

Weight Gain? Won't know this til my 26 week appointment.

Maternity clothes? Sometimes not usually though.

Stretch marks? Nope.

Belly button in or out? Depends on where the little miss is laying. I've started to notice she pushes my belly button with whatever bony body part it might be.... it hurts.

Sleep? Meh. Sleep is never good, though the last couple days it has gotten better.

Foods I am loving? Potatoes, pizza, flaming hot funyons.

Foods I am hating? Anything that doesn't sound good, really doesn't sound good.

Best moment this week? Skyler repainted her nursery last night! We'll be touching up and redoing the baseboards today!

Movement? Yup! She is quite the mover in there.

Symptoms? Same as always!


What I miss? Absolutely nothing! :)

What I'm looking forward to? Working more on her room and getting more stuff for her! My mom bought her her first pack of diapers and socks this week!

Weekly Wisdom: Sit back and relax!

Milestone: Getting past the 6 month mark was huge! She's getting so big and moving so much! Getting the nursery painted and slowly being allowed to start buying stuff soon!

Emotions: I'm so excited to meet her! I can't believe how fast time is going! I'm worried I won't get everything done though! Lately I've been having these awful dreams, where something goes wrong, I start bleeding and am being rushed to the hospital or am at the doctors. I never know what happens I always wake up thank goodness! But those dreams are starting to worry me, like I need to be prepared for anything. It's scary, but I always have a feeling that she'll be just perfectly fine, happy and healthy is all I ask.

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

Last Year.

I've been thinking a lot the last week or so about where I was at this time last year and the years before. Last year the night before Thanksgiving I had given up hope of being pregnant at all... ever. I was done, at that point a girl my brother sorta date a while ago told me she was pregnant and she was only 18 at the time. I couldn't take things like that anymore. I went to all the Thanksgiving meals hearing about and seeing pregnant people everywhere. I was ready to just curl up and die. Last Thanksgiving was really hard. This year I have a beautiful little girl growing in me. I'm almost 25 weeks pregnant. I'm getting close to having her in my arms.

Last year I still had some hope that I would be close with my husbands family. This year I know that it probably won't happen. I wish things would be good between us all, but there hasn't been any effort from them. There isn't anything at this point that gives me hope. I've tried offering to help, I've tried text, email, comments on facebook, anything and I get nothing. I'm tired of being ignored, just pushed to the side. I can't handle it anymore. I wish they didn't live so close. Or that I didn't want to make Skyler happy so much (with that situation only, I love him and want him to be happy so I continue and continue without results to get along with his family).

Last year my husband was working at a crazy job, this year he has a job where he has 4 days off in a row where I get to spend time with him.

Last year my family was in California, this year we will all be gathered around my parent's table like we should be.

24 weeks!!

How far along? 24 Weeks!!

Baby's size? Little Abigail is still the length of a papaya. About 10.5-12.5 inches and over one WHOLE POUND!! :) She's rapidly gaining ounces each week now!

Weight Gain? Not sure again... though last Dr.'s appointment was 7 lbs.

Maternity clothes? A mixture

Stretch marks? Nope.

Belly button in or out? It really depends on where she is laying.

Sleep? Blah... don't feel like talking about the sleeping problem.

Foods I am loving? A variety of things.

Foods I am hating? Anything fast food or greasy.

Best moment this week? Seeing Abigail move and feeling her get stronger and stronger!

Movement? Yes.

Symptoms? Same as always


What I miss? Absolutely nothing!

What I'm looking forward to? Working on the nursery! I can't wait to get all her stuff!

Weekly Wisdom: Sleep whenever you can.

Milestone: Making it to 6 months!!

Emotions: Still up and down. But mostly good. It honestly depends on the situation.

Your baby's growing steadily, having gained about 4 ounces since last week. That puts him at just over a pound. Since he's almost a foot long (picture an ear of corn), he cuts a pretty lean figure at this point, but his body is filling out proportionally and he'll soon start to plump up. His brain is also growing quickly now, and his taste buds are continuing to develop. His lungs are developing "branches" of the respiratory "tree" as well as cells that produce surfactant, a substance that will help his air sacs inflate once he hits the outside world. His skin is still thin and translucent, but that will start to change soon.

23 Weeks

How far along? 23 Weeks!!

Baby's size? Little Miss is still the length of a papaya. About 10.5-12.5 inches and over one WHOLE POUND!! :)

Weight Gain? 7lbs as of Monday

Maternity clothes? Sometimes.

Stretch marks? Nope.

Belly button in or out? Still in.

Sleep? Sometimes good, sometimes bad. Last night was okay :)

Foods I am loving? Snickers, Rocky Road Milkshakes

Foods I am hating? Greasy stuff.

Best moment this week? Feeling little miss move around and on Thursday Skyler felt her too! Oh my mom felt her Wednesday!

Movement? Yes!!

Symptoms? Same as always.


What I miss? Nothing.

What I'm looking forward to? Getting stuff for her nursery!

Weekly Wisdom: ummm...

Milestone: Almost to 6 months!

Emotions: Excited! Can't believe how much she is moving this week, bouncing around everywhere!!

Turn on the radio and sway to the music. With her sense of movement well developed by now, your baby can feel you dance. And now that she's more than 11 inches long and weighs just over a pound (about as much as a large mango), you may be able to see her squirm underneath your clothes. Blood vessels in her lungs are developing to prepare for breathing, and the sounds that your baby's increasingly keen ears pick up are preparing her for entry into the outside world. Loud noises that become familiar now — such as your dog barking or the roar of the vacuum cleaner — probably won't faze her when she hears them outside the womb.

22 weeks!

How far along? 22 Weeks!! According to one of my baby books this is my last week in my 5th month!

How far along? 22 Weeks!!

Baby's size? Little Miss is the length of a papaya. About 10.5-12.5 inches and one WHOLE POUND!!

Weight Gain? I find out on Monday... I'm kinda worried, I've been eating non-stop the last couple weeks.

Maternity clothes? Sometimes, but everything still fits (with the belly band on pants or a hair tie).

Stretch marks? Nope.

Belly button in or out? Still in, but the top is starting to stick out like a beak sometimes.

Sleep? The last couple days have been great, but usually I can't sleep.

Foods I am loving? Life, and rocky road milkshakes!

Foods I am hating? Everything at one point or another.

Best moment this week? Feeling her kick! On Monday night, (I really wanna say Monday but sometimes think Tuesday.) a5 10:51, I was laying in bed trying to sleep, when I felt something... hmmmm... was that her? Or just gas? Could be either I guess... 11:21, insert popping feeling... hmmm let's poke at that see what happens... a few seconds later another pop, we had a kick/poke war for half an hour that night! After the first couple responses I knew it was her! Now I feel her randomly here and there sometimes a few kicks here, or just one there. That first time was definitely the most I've felt her.

Movement? Yes. See above :)

Symptoms? Nauseous quite often. Okay nearly the whole day long...

Gender? GIRL!!

What I miss? Nothing :)

What I'm looking forward to? Working on her room and feeling her more!

Weekly Wisdom: Poke at the pop feeling, it may just poke back!

Milestone: Movement! 2 weeks away from 6 months!

Emotions: Still all over the place, I feel like I could cry if someone was mean to me at any point.

At 11 inches (the length of a spaghetti squash) and almost 1 pound, your baby is starting to look like a miniature newborn. Her lips, eyelids, and eyebrows are becoming more distinct, and she's even developing tiny tooth buds beneath her gums. Her eyes have formed, but her irises (the colored part of the eye) still lack pigment. If you could see inside your womb, you'd be able to spot the fine hair (lanugo) that covers her body and the deep wrinkles on her skin, which she'll sport until she adds a padding of fat to fill them in. Inside her belly, her pancreas — essential for the production of some important hormones — is developing steadily.

No pictures here. We didn't even buy candy for trick or treaters, knowing that we wouldn't be home. We had a pretty chill holiday weekend. We went to Kohl's and the mall on Saturday, where I found the best sweat pants at Victoria's Secret, only to come home and find 5 holes in them! They were so nice there, which is one of the reasons I had to write about it. Usually we just get ignored and brushed around with everyone but this time everyone was like are you okay? Feeling okay? Wanna sit down? I of course didn't feel very good Saturday so I looked like crap for sure but, it was nice to get some sort of I wouldn't say respect but I can't think of another word for it right now. That night we ate chinese and played Phase 10 with my parents and little sister! It was perfect :)

Sunday we of course had church, and boy were those primary kids wound up! After that it was a quick trip to exchange my sweats and lunch, after a fake nap (me trying to trick my body into falling asleep during the day... I'm unable to do this unless my body shuts down on its own, I'm a in bed by 11 at the latest and up whenever my body is ready person which is usually early) we headed to my parents for Sunday dinner then off to the SIL's for cake & ice cream for the FIL's birthday. That was quite the experience.

It wasn't bad it wasn't great, it was just there. Both SIL's were there, one is 7 months pregnant and the other is 3 and they look pregnant, me... not really most days. I felt out of place almost. *** pause to grab belly and talk to Abigail , I think I may finally have felt some definite kicks!*** Anyway, the younger sil (22 a yr older than me) slightly annoys me, her and her husband would smoke pot all the time and cigarettes and just stopped not too long before she got pregnant (supposedly) but who knows, I just don't get it, and she always acts like she is way older than me.... and the oldest sister always pulls the same crap...

To my husband:

Her: We both need to work on getting together more, we used to be so close, everyone thinks its my job to get the family together. I'm just really sick all the time and I know Sara is too

My thoughts: Wait wait wait, you know how I feel? You don't talk to me... how in the heck would you know how I feel....

Her: You'll feel awful for at least 2 months after having your baby... and while Skyler is gone I should feel better by then so I can come help you....

My thoughts: %$)*&!@*$!*&$_#(*%_!(#%&$*&%_@*#%(#$& ***That's about it****

Also before dinner my MIL called Skyler and wanted to see us and see how Skyler was doing... and he told her "Mom I'm fine, its Sara you should check on once in a while." That shut her up .

My in-laws are all great people they really are, and like my dad says "everyone is nice" I just haven't found that happy spot with them yet. I wish them the best and thats all I can do.
