Week 25 Pregnancy Update

2 Nov

How Big is Baby?


According to,

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.

How I’m Feeling Physically

Physically I’ve been doing really good.  Just like in the past weeks, I can tell my energy levels are going down.  I did decide not to lift Quincy or anything heavy for the rest of my pregnancy.  On Sunday when I lifted the dog, all 50 pounds of him, I immediately started seeing bright auras everywhere for a couple minutes.  I think that was my body telling me to knock it off and stop lifting Quincy,  or anything heavy for that matter.  I did get in lots of workouts during week 25 which included, walking the dog, cardio (treadmill and elliptical workouts) and prenatal yoga.  I’m still feeling strong physically and feel good about my cardio as well. 

How I’m Feeling Emotionally

Week 25 was a good week overall.  I have started reading about hypnobirthing and am getting really excited to explore it more.  I am about one-thirds finished with the book and have already learned so much.  Something in the book just clicks with the style of birth I want so I’m loving it.  Hypnobirthing is about taking the fear out of birth and also taking a more natural approach to the whole thing.  Other than that, I am just really excited to meet our baby girl!  I can’t stop day dreaming about what she will look like and what her voice will sound like.  Currently I’m feeling she will look just like me except with Keith’s blue eye color and his mouth.  I could change my mind at any minute, but right now that is what I’m picturing her to look like!
