25 Week Update

Once again, we are horribly behind on updates.  With Keith headed to Seoul this week, I should hopefully have the chance to update you on two amazing Brown visits, our Strut for Strays walk and our road trip circumnavigating Lake Michigan to get to Mackinac Island.  (Hopefully this is more doable than my plan to complete three photo books by the time the baby is born...)

Just shy of 25 weeks.  
Why haven't I been doing much blogging?  Well I have actually been doing a LOT of blogging.  I'm working hard to get enough ChemKnits posts scheduled so I can have a maternity leave once the baby is here.  I don't want to disappoint my readers by not producing content.  It helps that I have a list of knitting and dyeing projects that I need (want) to complete before the baby is born.  Some of these items are for the baby, others are for Christmas.

Today I had my 25 week update at the doctor.  All of my vitals continue to be really good and all tests are coming back negative.  I get to do the 1 hr diabetes test in the next few weeks, but I'm hopeful that it will go smoothly.  The only thing that concerns me is that Chriphead is currently measuring large.  I really don't want him to come out at 10 lbs!  I suppose my reaction is normal, and I didn't listen to when the Dr. said that I'm only measuring 1 cm large for how pregnant I am right now.  From my internet research, this is not "too large" enough to warrant any concern or additional tests, especially when everyone does the gestational diabetes test by 28 weeks anyway.

Mr. Chirphead is getting stronger and stronger.  Sometimes his kicks are so strong that it makes whatever I had resting on my belly jump!  While we were on Mackinac last week, Keith felt the strongest Chriphead kicks yet, and not to mention the first time he had felt multiple kicks in a row.
