25 Weeks

25 Week Bump (P.S.  Those are my pre-pregnancy jeans!  Woohoo!)

General Update:
A few exciting updates from the past week (at least for me, anyway).  A stranger (AKA a nice little old lady) offered me their seat on the train for the first time!  I declined, but it was still exciting to know that a stranger was able to tell that I'm pregnant!  Another piece of good news is that at her ultrasound this week, Baby Girl was weighing in at 1 lb 5 oz.  This is a little on the small side, but still in the healthy range!  :)  We were so glad to hear that she is growing well.

I've heard a lot of people talk about having weird dreams during their pregnancies.  I haven't really noticed anything crazy yet, but Caleb is definitely having strange dreams!  Last night, he dreamed that he was a Quidditch coach for the Netherlands, or something.  He told me this while we were eating breakfast this morning.  He then went on to tell me how much he wished he could go back to this dream world for a few minutes to see if his team won or not.  The only thing that has happened to me while sleeping is KILLER calf cramps.  This week I woke up in the middle of the night and sat bolt upright in bed with what felt like a charlie horse in my calf.  It was SO painful.  Hopefully that doesn't become a habit.

In other news, we are starting to solidify our plans for moving back to Maine.  We've decided that it's a better idea to move around April 1st instead of May 1st.  Being settled earlier will allow us to establish care before the baby joins us.

Update On Baby Girl
-Baby has a sense of equilibrium (she can tell which way is up and which is down)-
-She't putting on some more fat and growing more hair-

  3. Congrats on your little girl! I had TERRIBLE leg cramps during my first pregnancy that woke me up in the middle of the night too! The good news is that I went on to have three other babies and never had another leg cramp with those pregnancies! Hopped over from Noah's Dad's website. Look forward to following your journey! Our little girl had an AV Canal defect and had surgery to correct it at 4 months and is doing great!!!! Best wishes!!!
