25 Weeks

This weekend has already started off nice and lazy for me. I needed one of these considering we have traveled somewhere the last 3 weekends in a row. Last night we relaxed, turned our lights off (hiding from tricker treaters) and watched a movie. Tonight we are having some couples over to watch the UT/Tech game. There should be lots of fun conversation with 3 pregnant woman and a 7 month old crawling around.

I am 25 weeks today. Only 15 more weeks until Haley comes. The next two months will go by fast and it will be January before we know it. I am feeling good and can't complain. Sometimes I think I'm not as strong or I get tired fast, but I think I'm too hard on myself. I mean, I work a full time job, dealing with 110, 7th and 8th graders each day and I'm on my feet teaching. I think I'm doing better dang good and have nothing to complain about.

Here is some info on Haley at 25 weeks. She now measures about 13 1/2 inches. Her weight — a pound and a half, 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. She kicks a lot in the mornings, after school, and at night when I'm laying in bed. She probably kicks during the day, but I'm busy and don't really notice it. George felt her kick twice last night.

This is how big she is, but I know she is way cuter than this.

I can only imagine in 15 more weeks this will be her....Not sure how I feel about carrying something the size of a pumpkin in my belly..

Memaw and Pepaw bought me my high chair. Here is a picture of it. Thanks so much!!

I go to the doctor on Tuesday for my glucose screening test to see if I have Gestational Diabetes. This is routine for every pregnant woman. I'll let you know how the visit goes.
