24 or is it 25 weeks?

So, I am around 24-25 weeks now. I know it seems weird to not be 100% sure on the exact week but we never really had a good date to go off even from the beginning. We spent much of the early weeks of my pregnancy trying to figure out how far long I was and then when we had a date, Graham has always been a week ahead. So, I figure he will come sometime between March 2-15 and because I am tired of being pregnant...I am adding a week (because it makes me feel better) and am now 25 weeks!
Here are some stats on what is going on with me and Graham....

Size of baby: About the size of a rutabaga

Total Weight Gain: 20 pounds...which looking back on my pregnancy with Peyton is right where I was last time!

Maternity Clothes: For the most part I am only just now wearing maternity pants all the time. Up to about a week or so ago I could still do my post pregnancy (not yet back to regular jeans) pants with the bella band. I am still sporting a large amount of regular shirts and some maternity ones but I have budgeted money this month for some winter maternity wear.

Gender: Boy....Graham Ryerson Acord

Movement: I feel him constantly! He moves all the time and kicks all the time. A nice change from Peyton who NEVER EVER moved but I wouldn't mind him not moving while I was sleeping!

Cravings: I am starting to feel constantly hungry and kind of sick to my stomach feeling when I haven't eaten in awhile so maybe we are in the eat more regularly phase...which is difficult when a piece of bread will give me awful heartburn!

Sleeping: What is that? I have not been able to sleep hardly at all. Even if I am tired (which I am all the time) I will be awake in bed for hours and then when I am finally falling asleep I have to get up and go to the bathroom. For two nights in the past three weeks, I have taken half the recommended dosage of Tylenol PM which is safe during pregnancy and my doctor recommended (she even said I could do the full dose and even gave me prescription sleep pills but I never filled them) to help me sleep because I was almost at a breaking point. I don't like to take them and it is hard to ensure 8-9 hours of sleep so I haven't taken them but those two times.

Best Moment this week: Hmmm.....being able to do more without being in pain. My pain levels have gone down significantly and I barely ever have cramping!

Ah the joys of pregnancy! I had almost forgotten about the horrible heartburn and 20 trips a night to the bathroom, hrmmm, maybe I'll hold off on baby #2 for a while. You look great though!
