I am now 25 weeks pregnant!
Baby is now about the size of an eggplant. Her sense of equilibrium is developing, so she can sense upside-down from right-side-up. Most of her remaining development will largely be weight gain and lots and lots of nervous system development. She's also growing more hair — and if we could see it, we'd now be able to discern its color and texture.
I'm feeling pretty good these days. I think my belly went through another growth spurt! I'm filling out my shirts even more now. I still have no sign of the linea negra, which I'm happy about. I think that my hair is starting to be more noticeably thick (this is a good thing!), and I'm also noticing that my belly is kind of fuzzy. (Ew!) Over all I feel pretty good, although the back pain is becoming more frequent, and when I'm on my feet for a long time, I start feeling like my belly is too heavy to hold up. I'm going to try wearing a support band soon and see how that helps.
My MIL and BIL (and his girlfriend) are all staying with us right now, and they brought us a big box full of baby clothes. I was so excited to finally hang some things in Baby's closet! We got some REALLY cute outfits. So much fun! This weekend I am attending two separate baby showers. It's amazing how much more fun baby showers are when you are pregnant! I'm getting very excited for my own shower(s). :)
Just two more weeks til the 3rd trimester!!!
