25 weeks

I am 25 weeks and 2 days.

I've gained 21 lbs thus far.  (With Garrison I had gained 21 lbs at this point and with Josiah I had gained 20 lbs.  So I'm right on track to gain my 55 to 60 lbs.  Wowser!  I just looked up how much I actually gained with both boys... Garrison I gained 58 lbs and Josiah I gained 56 lbs.  Here we go!)

I'm craving watermelon, cereal and salads, but, of course, I've been eating everything and can't seem to stop.

I had a doctors appointment last Thursday and the baby is doing good.  His heart beat is 150 bpm and everything is looking good.  My next appointment I'll be going in to test for diabetes.  Then I'll be going every 2 weeks.  Crazy!  I'm so excited to meet this little guy I'm practically busting at the seams.

He's been kicking a ton lately.  The other day Garrison was leaning against my tummy when his little brother began kicking.  Garrison gently elbowed my tummy back and said, "knock it off."

I've still been experiencing a lot of back pain, pressure and cramping.  Lately it's been more back pain then anything else.  By the end of the day it's hard for me to walk, but I'm loving being pregnant again.  A lady from our church has set up people to bring us meals once a week until the baby comes.  I'm a little overwhelmed by it all, but am trying to take it all with a "thank you" and a smile.  I feel like I'm still capable of making my family meals, but I also know that people want to help out.
