Gluten Free Bumpdate - Week 25

Nevermind the dents from my leggingins :)
How far along? 25 weeks / 26 when this posts!
Total weight gain: 
Maternity clothes? Oh yes. In fact, I attempted to wear what was a very loose blouse pre-pregnancy and it was quite tight. 
Stretch marks? Nope!
Sleep: Interrupted. I could certainly use much more than I have been getting!
Best moment this week: Enjoying a weekend away with my husband, Bricklet being spoiled with adorable things by my team at work (so appreciative of their kindness!). Buying him a bunch of stuff while shopping with my husbandit's the first time he has gotten to pick our and buy things - we were holding off due to Manhattan apartment space problems, but have accumulated enough to have thrown our hats into the ring.
Miss anything? For the first time in a long time, pastries. It's not easy to get my hands on gluten free pastries where I was for work last week or in airports, so for the first time in eons I wished I would just get a croissant at Starbucks (or danish from anywhere). 
Movement: Still lots, including a couple of rolls which are pretty funny. He is generally really active. On Sunday morning Bricklet must have been having a party, which was fun because my husband just hung out with my hand on my stomach and got to feel all the jabs.
Food cravings: See above re: pastries.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Acid reflux, lack of sleep, cigarette smoke. You know, the usual.
Gender: Boy!
Labor signs: Nope!
Symptoms: Acid reflux, belly was a bit itchy/achey from all the expanding, backaches. More acne inflamed by travelling.
Belly button in or out? In! Though I did notice it has become more shallow.
Wedding rings on or off?  On! Though I forgot to put them on before travelling and spent three days annoyed at no having them!
Happy or moody most of the time: Front half of the week was moody. I had a bit of a meltdown and had a solid day where I just could not stop crying or was on the verge of crying the whole day. Fortunately, it turned around and the rest of the week was spent in much better spirits!
What are you looking forward to? Vacation... it is getting so close! An upcoming work trip to London where I get to catch up with some friends, and the festive season in New York!
