Bump Watch: Week 25

How Far Along:: 25 weeks

Size of Baby:: Little Miss Kemp is the size of a cauliflower!

Gender:: Girl!

Stretch Marks:: If you been following for awhile then you are privy to my "secret formula!"

Sleep:: Sleeping like a log.

 Exercise::On Monday we went to the ER! I was diagnosed with gastroenteritis and pre-term labor/early contractions. I am feeling better today, and back to work but still very tired and lethargic. I am taking the remainder of the week off from the box!

Cravings::I am boring in this department though I still need to develop a list of must-haves while we are in Madison, WI.

Miss Anything::My back NOT hurting!

Symptoms:: Back aches/pain. I have made an appointment with a highly regarded OB-GYN D.O. for this coming Monday! D.O.'s specialize in OMM (osteopathic manipulative medicine), and I am hoping for whatever and all manipulations to get some back relief. 

Belly Button In or Out::In

Movement:: She has been a little more on the quiet side compared to last week, but then got more active on Monday night/Tuesday morning. The constant vomiting had her excited. 

Best Moment of the Week:: Coach and I attended a Lamaze Child Birth Class on Saturday and Sunday - 12 hours to be exact. Both of us would agree that it was the most well-spent 12 hours we have ever delegated to one task in a long while. If you are currently pregnant, I highly suggest that you take a Lamaze class, and I am not simply referring to the free hospital tours. Yes, we are doing that as well, but we both feel way more prepared for the birthing process as well as the first few days of baby's life!

On My Mind:: I am in disbelief that she will be arriving three months! Uhm, a person can train for a half marathon in three months! Eek - so much to do, so little time!

Looking Forward To:: My OB appointment on Thursday! While in the ER, many tests were run, even an ultra-sound. I just want to ensure all is still going ok with Little Miss Kemp. She was doing fine on Monday night, even showing off for the ultra-sound - doing flips, peek-a-boo, you name it!
