25 weeks!

Pregnancy: 25 weeks (6 months)

Weight Gain: Up 14 ::swallows loudly:::

Sleep: Getting more uncomfortable.

Gender: Girl.

Name: Courtney Holland

Feeling: Good.

Health: Great except for the terrible heartburn I've had the last few days.

Movement: Yes. She has her moments where I wonder "what are you doing in there?"

Belly: Definitely growing.

Next Appointment: March 10. I'll be 27w6d. I'll be getting my rhogam shot (because I am O- and Mike has A+ blood) and I'll also be taking the 1 hour glucose tolerance test (to test for Gestational Diabetes) again.

Baby this week:
Head to heels, your baby now measures about 13 1/2 inches. Her weight — a pound and a half — isn't much more than an average rutabaga, but she's beginning to exchange her long, lean look for some baby fat. As she does, her wrinkled skin will begin to smooth out and she'll start to look more and more like a newborn. She's also growing more hair — and if you could see it, you'd now be able to discern its color and texture.

She weighs as much as an average rutabaga:
