25 Weeks

I have had a rough week (work wise) and I can't wait for the week to be over and onto the weekend where I can relax, kick my feet up and watch movies all weekend.

But in the meantime, here is your 25 weeks update.
 Pregnant at 25 weeks.  My belly is pretty covered up, but I will get a better picture this evening or tomorrow when my husband can take one of me.

How far along: 25 weeks
Babies are the size of a: Cauliflower/Rutabaga
Babies are: The babies are most likely measuring 13 1/2 to 14.8 inches in length and weigh about 1 1/2 to 2 1/5 pounds.  We will find out their actual measurements Tuesday at our growth scan.  The babies are starting to get their balance down which means they know if they are upright or down.  They are also growing more fat and hair as we speak.  We may even be able to see it on the ultrasound Tuesday.  Will the Butler babies be blonde babies like their parents?  Only time will tell. 
Maternity Clothes: Pretty much I live in maternity clothes with a shirt here or there that is non-maternity.  I am already getting tired of the lack of variety.
Stretch Marks:So far so good.  I hope I don't get any.
Sleep: Ok.  I have been waking up every 2 hours or so to pee.  Thanks to the babies playing on my bladder.  I can't wait for my next chiropractor adjustment next week and my massage this weekend.  Hopefully they help.
Symptoms: Backaches, swollen feet and overall exhausted.
Best Moment of the Week:  Watching the Wolf Pack beat San Diego State at home and take first place in the Mountain West - West conference.  Otherwise, my week has been kinda crappy - work wise. 
Movement: Lots of baby kicks and I love it.  I love trying to see which one is kicking, which body part is sticking out and the overall feeling.  These babies can kick all they want because it is very comforting to feel them.
Cravings: Fruit (big time apple kick), ice cream and pizza.

Gender: Two precious baby girls.
Belly Button In or Out: Mostly out, but it is in at the start of the day and out by the end.

Wedding Ring on or Off: On.
Anything Making You Queasy or Sick: Nothing right now.
What I Miss: Working out and going on walks with my pup.  It is really hard to get moving around without feeling exhausted.  Didn't realize how quickly it would happen, but I am embracing the sit down and relax routine.  I also miss sleeping on my stomach and back.  They seem more comfortable.
What I am Looking Forward to: Setting up the nursery more this weekend, watching movies all weekend and relaxing.

Labor Signs: We have some Braxton Hicks contractions going on, but no signs of labor.  Thank the heavens for that.
Nursery: It is coming along FINALLY!  We set one of the cribs up last night and it took quite awhile.  Those instruction sheets aren't very helpful, but now that one is done, the other should be easy this weekend.  Don't worry, I just supervise and hold up parts so my husband can put it together.  We also got our recliner yesterday (protected and beautiful) and moved it into the girls room.  Now we just have to figure out the way we want the furniture.
Emotions: I am happy when I am not at work (due to too much work stress right now), but work is sucking the life out of me this week.  I hope next week is better with a holiday and furlough.  Plus my first baby shower is next weekend and I CAN.NOT.WAIT.
