25 weeks!

How far along: 25 weeks- amazing. 

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

Maternity clothes: Yes, I can probably quit answering this question now.

Sleep: Sleep has been pretty good lately (knock on wood), I haven't been getting up in the middle of the night as much so that helps!

Best moment of the week:  Every moment has been pretty great- there are times I can feel parts of her body pushing out of my stomach and that is pretty darn cool ♥

Movement: yes, and I'm still loving it!

Symptoms: Swollen feet and ankles.

Food cravings/aversions: Nutty bars....delicious

Gender: Girl ♥

Belly button in or out: My belly button is pretty flat, I wonder if it will pop out one of these days?

Stretch marks: Nothing new

What I miss: Putting on my pants and shoes without struggling, hahaha!

What I am looking forward to: Our baby shower at the end of this month and making it to the 3rd trimester!

Weekly wisdom: From my uncle- "Never pass up the opportunity to go to the bathroom" so true.

  1. I love the advice from your uncle. Even when you're not pregnant, I think that's true. Lookin good momma!

  2. So true about teh bathroom. And now I want a Nutty Bar!

  3. loving the updates, especially the pics! you are one fabulous looking pregnant lady! ;) can't wait to see pics of the nursery when it's all done.

  4. Sleeping well is awesome! You look wonderful!

  5. Your uncle's comment made me laugh out loud! Seriously... that's golden advice! :) My sister craved Nutty Bars as well - through all three of her pregnancies. Looking gorgeous!!!

  6. happy to hear about the sleeping and LOVE your uncle's advice!!
    is that the baby's room? the green seems more subdued?

    glad you are moving along so wonderfully!

  7. Rutabaga?? So not helpful! Who uses rutabagas for anything? We need to write a more modern pregnancy book!

    You look great!

  8. Ha, love the comment from your uncle - so true! Glad to hear you've had a good week!

  9. I was laughing so hard earlier while reading this at work that people started to walk into my office, your uncle's quote is hilarious because it's so true!

  10. Gotta love the weekly updates!!! :) I see you and I think, "That is where I will be in a little bit!" I'm starting to miss being able to put on shoes comfortably, too. I always feel like I'm gonna smash the little babe. Sorry about the swollen ankles and feet. Hopefully that's just a summer thing and it'll pass. It's called cankles. Ah, the things we do to have our child!

  11. You look so great! You keep me informed about what's ahead... thanks! I think you just increased some sales of nutty bars, lol.

  12. Your uncle is a very smart man! I'm an oatmeal cream pie girl myself, but nutty bars are good.


I would love to hear what you have to say!
