Week 25

Baby Mussetter is now the size of an eggplant!  He is learning to distinguish right side up from upside down.  And my uterus is now the size of a basketball (according to  His hands are now fully developed, complete with miniature fingernails and the ability to curl his fingers into a tiny fist (according to the Mayo Clinic's Guide to a Healthy Pregnacy).
I had an appointment with Dr. Miller on Monday.  He measured my belly and said that I was measuring right where I should be.  So, I guess BBM is growing just fine, even though I have only gained about 1 pound!  Although, I am sure I will gain PLENTY of weight in the remaining weeks!  I have been having some numbness and tingling in my feet and hands lately.  Dr. Miller said that it is probably swelling around my nerves.  Oh joy!  I have also been having horrible leg cramps during the night that cause me to wake up screaming in pain.  I told Jason that I couldn't believe that he was able to sleep through my screaming.  He finally admitted the other day that I didn't know how hard it was for him to pretend that he was asleep while I was up with my leg cramps.  HaHa!

I go back in 3 weeks for my glucose tolerance test.  I am NOT looking forward to drinking the sugary orange drink.  Dr. Miller just warned me to not eat a lot of carbs before my appointment because it would probably cause me to fail the test. 

Here are this week's baby bump pictures:

Love ya!
