24 Weeks:

Our baby boy is as big as a cantalope and is about 8 1/2 inches long and weighs about 1 1/2 pounds. His face is fully formed, his hearing is becoming more and more developed, and he is gaining about 6 ounces each week. Nothing new to report this week, except for the fact that he has been busy growing like crazy. I haven't weighed myself in a couple weeks, so I honestly have no idea how much weight I have gained. I go back to the doctor at 27 weeks, so I will probably wait until then to jump on the scale. He is still active in the early AM and late PM, except that I have started to notice he wakes up a little mid-day for a little punching bag session on my stomach.

25 Weeks:

We have been so ridiculously busy this week that I forgot to take my weekly picture (thanks to packing and moving)...I'm such a slacker. At least I took a selfie in the gym that I can use, right? Baby boy is as big as a rutabaga and is 9 inches long and weighs a little over 1 1/2 pounds. His skin is becoming pinker, his lungs are gearing up to breathe, and his nostrils are starting to open. Again, nothing new to really report this week. By Bahama Bucks cravings are still going strong and I still can't really eat eggs, but other than that, no crazy food cravings or aversions. We go back to the high risk OB on Monday of next week for an ultrasound (yay!!) and I do my glucose test on Wednesday of next week. Lots going on for this baby boy in the next few days.

Also, we bought a house!! Eric and I are now proud homeowners of a 3 bed/2 bath (with a study) house in the Cypress area. We (aka, my mom) painted the WHOLE house last week and we have slowly been moving are stuff in. Then this past weekend, we had both of our families come help out with the unloading of boxes from our apartment and storage, and it was such a whirlwind. I am so thankful for all of their help!

We are slowly unpacking boxes and buying furniture for our new place, so it will definitely be a work in progress for awhile. But we are so happy to have a place to call home and a place to bring our son home to from the hospital. Speaking of which, the crib is already in place in the nursery and it is so surreal. Our nursery theme and colors are already picked, now we just have to put them into action. The walls were painted a classic gray color last week and it looks amazing! Now for the details :) I will be posting pics once it is done!

Hopefully I will have more to report next week once we have the OB appointments!
