Under the weather & 25 weeks

This week, Chad came down with a cold or virus or something. He started feeling bad Monday, and by Wednesday decided to take a sick day and go to the doctor. He ended up getting a steroid shot, and a couple of hours later felt like new again. We ended up having our friends Kirby and Jake over to watch the basketball game that night. Chad's been feeling his normal self again ever since. We thought it might have just been allergies since the steroid shot cleared it up so fast, and my mom said tree pollen has been really high. Then yesterday and today, I have started to feel super tired, kind of congested and a little achy. Yesterday, I napped for a good while on the couch and didn't get much done. Then today, after I got home from getting my wedding ring cleaned and checked out (some of the pave diamonds have been loose) I went straight to bed to rest. We haven't been sick in forever, so I guess it was bound to happen, but I am hoping to kick it before it gets worse. Maybe I am not really sick, but starting to feel tired from the pregnancy,since I am coming up on my 26th week (and 3rd trimester soon...)

This weekend we will probably be laying low. Chad got free Cinemark movie tickets from work so we might head to The Woodlands to see a movie since the cinemark by us is pretty ghetto these days. Then Sunday evening we're going to watch my cousin Gracie get baptized. Gracie was our flower girl. Her birthday is in a few days, I can't believe she will be 8!

This past Wednesday I went with my cousin-in-law Ginny (Gracie's mom) to a Mom's group bible study at her church. I really enjoyed it and I'm planning on going to hear a really good speaker with her next month. Other than being a little sickly, we had a pretty good week. Graham has been pretty active too, and during the bible study, Ginny even said she saw my stomach jump a few times!

Graham's baby bedding came in last Friday, and we love it! It's a little different blue than we thought, more of a light aqua, but it looks good with the cream and chocolate brown. We're really happy with the quality too. Can't wait to move and start on the nursery, only a couple of more weeks. I am going to start packing up our apartment soon so moving will be easier. Hope everyone has a great weekend!

25 Weeks:
Head to heels, your baby now measures about 13 1/2 inches. His weight — a pound and a half — isn't much more than an average rutabaga, but he's beginning to exchange his long, lean look for some baby fat. As he does, his wrinkled skin will begin to smooth out and he'll start to look more and more like a newborn. He's also growing more hair — and if you could see it, you'd now be able to discern its color and texture.
