25 weeks

how far along?  25 weeks
how are you measuring?  27 weeks
size of baby? 13 1/2 inches long, 1 1/2 pounds, and about the same weight as a rutabaga.
heartbeat? 135 bpm (at our 24 week appointment)
total weight gain/loss? +15 pounds
maternity clothes? Yup!!  I'm wearing maternity pants, a mixture of maternity shirts and regular shirts and regular dresses.
stretch marks? No, not yet, but I am starting to get a faint line below my belly button....ya know "the line". I was hoping I wouldn't get that, but from what I hear, it goes away after pregnancy, so I'm okay with that.  
sleep? My doctor told me this week that I shouldn't be sleeping on my back.  Ever since Monday I have been sleeping restlessly.  I love sleeping on my back with my hands above my head, so now I'm constantly thinking about how I'm sleeping at night trying not to sleep on my back.  I just don't sleep as comfortable on my side, but I guess I'm going to have to learn how to considering I have 15 more weeks of not sleeping on my back.  I'm thinking about investing in one of those Bobby Maternity pillows.  Have any of you ever used them??
best moment this week? Matt put together Pearson's crib, dresser, and bookshelf.  His room is definitely looking like a nursery instead of an extra junk room.  Now we just need to get some paint and decoration on the walls and his bedding made!!
movement? He is moving ALL.THE.TIME. I love it and wouldn't have it any other way!!   
food cravings? I've been dying to try the Chick-fil-A Banana Pudding Milkshake.  I don't think it has anything to do with being pregnant because I love banana milkshakes.  I'm pretty sure I can easily talk Matt into taking me to get one since his favorite dessert is banana pudding.
gender predictions? It's a BOY!!!  Pearson Davis Link!!!
what i miss:  Sleeping on my back.
what i'm looking forward to: Spring Break!! 5 more days!! My goal is to FINISH Pearson's nursery over the break.
how are you feeling? Feeling great!!  No complaints here.
