Bump to Baby: 25 Weeks

You are over 13 inches long and more than a pound-and-a-half in weight which is about the weight of an acorn squash. You are turning less translucent and becoming more pink. Your small blood vessels - capillaries - are forming under your skin and filling with blood which helps make you pinker. Your lungs are still a work in progress but they are developing and are one step closer to being able to function in the outside world. Also starting to work this week is your nose so you can work on taking practice breaths.

This week was a bit rough. I actually got sick a couple times this week. Once it was a morning right after breakfast then again a day or so later that I got sick in the middle of lunch. I don't know what's up this week but it was a rough one morning sickness wise. I just can't seem to caught a break when it comes to getting sick. I would love to be able to eat without thinking about it and without feeling like I'm going to be sick all the time. I have also been really tired this week but when you don't feel great you don't always sleep great. Also the kids haven't slept great this week which means as a parent that you don't sleep great. Otherwise it's just been a lot of the same. You are an active one, always wiggling and kicking. I don't worry about you as much as I once did because you are just constantly on the move.

I'm just going to say that naming a kid is a hard thing. It's a big responsibility. There's a careful balance between finding out that suits your kid as a kid but also your kid as adult. And for me I want to make sure that I name my kid something that other people can pronounce and spell. I like something unique but also something that might be a bit more traditional. Addison's name came easy. Naming a boy was much harder for us but we got there with Connor. Then we got pregnant again and we started talking about names. Since we weren't sure if we were having a boy or a girl at first, we talked genders. We found a name we liked for a boy but no middle name. I had several girl names I loved but Rob wasn't convinced. Emma had been on my short list for a lot time but it wasn't until my mom mentioned it again that it went back on my list. In fact it became my list. I ran it by Rob who seemed down for the name pretty quickly. But we needed to come up with a middle name. Middle names always came pretty quickly for me. Once we found the first name I usually just naturally flowed into a middle name. This one was somewhat similar in the sense that I was standing in the shower thinking about her name when I decided I wanted to use my sister's middle name as her middle name. And just as easily, she became Emma Lynn. As soon as I told Rob, we knew it was the right name and that was her. There was no other name or combination that would be right. Naming Emma has definitely been a combination of the easy of naming Addison and the struggle of Connor. But now there's no other name that I could imagine would work. Emma Lynn is the right fit and we can't wait to meet her.
