How many weeks:  25 weeks

How am I feeling: tired, hot and excited

Doctor’s Appointment: I see the OB on the 29th (26 wks) and the MFM on May 13th (28 wks).  We also have our 3D u/s set for May 6th (27 wks) and if Noah is cooperative we will get some awesome pics!

Weight Gain:  I don't know.  I'll know next Friday.  I have stopped weighing myself at home b/c it's usually lower than my doctor appts and I don't like to get my hopes up.  I am still well within my 15 lb limit from the doc though.
Maternity Clothes:  I wear all maternity clothes these days.  Love it!

Baby Preparation: Nursery is coming together nicely.  I am participating a community garage sale on May 7th, and that will be the last of all our mess that needed to leave the room. 

Gender: precious baby boy (confirmed on 5 separate u/s - so anything different would totally catch us off guard LOL)

Name:  Noah Reagan McCleskey.  It means Peaceful Little King.  Pretty sweet!

Sleep:  Sleep has never been a problem with any of my pregnancies.  I think it's because of the Prometrium.  :0)

Best moment this week:  Feeling him kicking away pretty much all the time.  Also, one morning I couldn't get him to move, I got panicky...  Matt talked to him and sang him the Noah song that he made up and right away he was kicking up a storm.

Movement: A lot.  I love it.  I love being woken up by it early in the morning.  It's so sweet.

Food cravings: Mangos, mango sorbet, mango yogurt.  Oh, and mango smoothies.

What I miss: Nothing.  Absolutely nothing.

What I am looking forward to: Today, tomorrow and making it all the way with this little guy!  

Milestones:  Today!  I'm at 25 weeks.  I can honestly say that I am blessed and so surprised to have made it this far.  I've only ever experienced all the worst things that could happen with a pregnancy, so each day is another blessing.  Each movement a joy.

Here is what he should be looking like this week:

I love seeing this number! Amanda I am sooo happy for you. FYI- I go by my scale at home. The nurse says I should (and check it the same time every day, preferably early in the morning and butt naked) because at the dr.'s office several factors play a part; shoes, clothing, food in your stomach, time of day, etc.
