25 weeks!

I have a few non-pregnancy posts coming soon... promise! But for now? An update.

So this whole pregnancy thing? It's really flying by now.  In 2 short weeks, I'll be in 3rd tri. I'll be starting my bi-weekly appts with my OB and ultrasounds with MFM and taking my GD test again.  I literally feel like I was just staring blankly {and shockingly} out of the living room window just minutes after testing thinking HOW I was going to handle another baby {mind you: Reid was only 8 months old} and now, here we are, with just a few more months to go. A few more months until I meet my baby girl.

A few more months until our family is complete.

Pregnancy: 25 weeks  

Weight Gain: 14 pounds

Sleep: I'm passing out by 9pm every night.  I would feel like a total loser, if I cared enough. I don't.
  
Gender: It's a GIRL!  {Check out the reveal post.}

Name: Emerson Mae {Check out my original name post here and the reveal post here.}

Feeling: I've been feeling super anxious lately.  Not sure what that's about.  I'm ready to feel like myself again, that's for sure!

Health:  Okay so, for the past few days, I've been SUPER dizzy.  It's mostly at night... I usually wake up feeling fine, but it gets worse during the day.  I'm hoping it's not a BP issue.  My BP was fine at my last appt, but that doesn't necessarily mean that it's fine now, however.  I've just been trying to relax and drink water when I feel that way and it usually helps.  I'll bring it up to my OB at my next appt. As you may remember, I had pre-e with both Carter and Brynn, so I'm hoping I don't develop it again this pregnancy.

Movement: Her movement is becoming more consistent now. She moves a lot in the early morning, goes CRAZY after lunch for awhile and then starts up again in the early evening.  But the kids LOVE feeling her move around in my belly.  Carter will just come over and sit next to me and put his hand on my belly and talk to "baby sister" until she moves for him.  It's really sweet!  Brynn loves it too and Reid just does it because he sees everyone else doing it. Ha!

Belly: Measuring 2 weeks ahead as of my last appt.  I'm sure we're well on our way to measuring 5-6 weeks ahead really soon though. NBD.
 
For reference, here are my side-by-side weekly belly pics with Reid and my first 20 weeks with Emmie Mae. 

Next Appointment: OB Appointment & Glucose Test {again}: Friday, November 1st at 27w1d.  Next ultrasound: Friday, November 8th at 28w1d.

Love your updates, because I'm right behind you at 17 weeks with my fourth and I've had my share of ups and downs, too. Just wanted to say a quick 'thanks' for your Team Green post. Hubby and I read it last week and decided that were feeling the exact same way about waiting. We decided we wanted to know the sex after all - and it was plain to see that this one is a boy. Two girls and two boys for us, as well! Good luck and thank you for sharing your life with us!

Your dizziness could be accosiated with low iron. Just a thought :).

I'll be 29 weeks on Saturday with baby girl #2 and I agree, this pregnancy is flying by!
