25 Weeks!!!

This is a picture to represent Baylor's size from 25-28 weeks. My baby journal says that he is about 12-1/2 inches long and weighs around 1-1/2 pounds. He is slowly on the way to looking more like a cuddly newborn as his body bulks up with more baby fat. More importantly, growing a good layer of fat tissue will help regulate his own body temperature outside the womb and will provide energy. This week he might also show off a particular hair color and texture (but these could change after birth and he might lose this first head of hair altogether).
At 25 weeks I'm still pretty fatigued and I'm starting to swell pretty bad on the days that I work. I'm on my feet 90% or more of my day and I think sometimes it's just a little too much. The good thing is my blood pressure is still very good. I'm really looking forward to the Fall weather. I'm hoping it will make a big difference in my swelling. I also feel like my belly has grown a lot over the last week. I promise I will post a belly picture on here sometime this week. I guess that is all the updates on me and Baylor for now.
I hope everyone is enjoying this beautiful weekend and has a good week ahead!
