25 weeks

First, I want to apologize for being a bad blogger friend. Things have been really busy at work plus traveling plus family visits this weekend and next - I haven't had much time to sit down and comment on what's going on with everyone. I am doing my best to keep up though and I'm thinking of you all the time! Hopefully things settle down again soon. I am ready for a break.

How far along: 25 weeks 

Countdown to EDD: 15 weeks/103 days - almost down to double digits!

Baby is the size of a: Cauliflower. Baby is probably over a foot long and could weigh as much as 2.2 lbs. I believe it. It feels like he's taking up so much space now.

Physical symptoms: Lots of stretching, exhaustion and some crazy dreams.   

Mood: Pretty good, except for the exhaustion.   

Total Weight Gain/Loss:  +11, I think

Maternity clothes:  Definitely necessary. I gave up on regular pants. Some regular tops and leggings/yoga pants still work, but mostly I wear maternity close.    

Sleep: I feel like sleep is going well, but I'm still tired.

Best moment of the week: I went to a breastfeeding class this week and really enjoyed that.

Movement: Yep - he's really starting to run out of space though. Most of the time I love it, but sometimes it's uncomfortable or painful.

Food cravings/aversions: I want all of the food (except eggs).

Sex: Still a boy

Labor signs: Nope

What I miss: Wine looked really good this week.

What I am looking forward to: Third trimester - only a few more weeks!

Milestones: Last week was the big one, I guess 3rd tri will be the next big thing.

Showing yet: Definitely. My belly feels massive and I still (hopefully) have 15 more weeks to grow. That kind of freaks me out a little bit. I can't even imagine what it's going to feel like. 


  1. Awww, you're so cute, look at that beautiful bump!! I love it, and I love the outfit too! I can't believe the countdown, almost double digits? Where is time going?! Glad to hear you and baby boy are doing well <3

  2. You are carrying so cute! You have a higher bump and its adorable. Mine sits low and looks like I had too much to drink lol. So glad everything is still going great!

  3. Thanks! My mom and sister said the same thing about my bump being high when they saw me this weekend. I still think I look like the Grinch :)
