Week 25/6th Month
Baby is an Eggplant or a Rutabaga
TheBump ~ Let your spouse put an ear to your belly -- he might be able to pick up baby's heartbeat (no stethoscope required). Inside the womb, the formation of tiny capillaries is giving baby a healthy pink glow. Baby's also soaking up your antibodies, getting the immune system ready for life outside the womb. Eyes are forming, and baby will soon perfect the blink -- perfect for batting those freshly grown lashes.
BabyCenter ~ 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.
How big is baby: she is about 13.5 inches long and weighs about 1lb 5oz.
Total weight gain: I forgot to weigh myself this morning
Maternity clothes? Yup..but i dont have many which is hard since its hot out still.
Sleep: Could be better. Been getting up every couple hours to use the washroom.
Best moment this week: Getting the nursery cleaned out more!
Movement: Yup..a lot more than now.
Belly Button in or out? its becoming an outtie

What I miss: Sleeping through a whole night (but i know that will never happen again lol) and fitting in all of my clothes.
What I am looking forward to: the fall and getting a little cooler outside and my baby shower =)
Labor Signs: i'm having braxton hicks contractions every once in a while..i think.
Milestones: 103 days to go =)
