Baby Bump: 25 Weeks


I feel like it's been a while since I've posted a baby bump update! Don't worry though, I'll fill you all in today. Tomorrow I'll be 26 weeks, so I'm squeezing in my 25 week update today! Some exciting stuff has gone on recently.. We registered this past weekend at Babies "R" Us & Target! Feel free to look at our registry & buy us stuff ;). We also celebrated my birthday last week & obviously the 4th!

My next doctor's appointment is on Monday. I have the pleasure of doing my glucose test that day as well too ha. I'm hopeful I'll only have to do the 1 hour test, so here's to that! Starting next month, I'll be going to the doctor every other week & then in September, I'll be going weekly. It's crazy to think that our baby girl will be here before we know it! Ahh!

So here's all of the baby bump details!

Baby: About the size of a Napa cabbage or rutabaga (literally don't know what either of those technically look like... But she's around 9 inches, 1.7 pounds).

How I feel: I still feel good for the most part, but lately there's some days I just feel "pregnant" haha. There's literally no other way for me to describe it. My belly has felt huge recently & sometimes it feels like I have to swing it around when I move. My back bothers me some & my feet are occasionally starting to swell if I'm on them too long. Overall though, I still am thankful I feel as good as I do.

Food: I really haven't been "craving" much anymore. I still am a big Icee fan, but I'll pretty much eat anything. Nothing really sounds overly good or bad. I'm just good with food of any sort!

Clothing: I haven't bought anything else "maternity" lately. I'm getting away with wearing big/loose clothing. I've tried on a few things I wore last summer & "put them away" until next summer because they definitely don't fit. Old Navy has been my BFF this summer, y'all. So many good sales. So many good loose clothing options. It's a pregnant girl's dream.

Sleep: My Boomerang pillow has been a lifesaver. I still wake up anytime I turn over, & I have to go to the bathroom a lot, but it's really not that bad. Last night was the first time our baby girl's kicks woke me up in the middle of the night. I was already kind of restless, but she started kicking me pretty hard & it definitely woke me up. So I just got up to go to the bathroom & when I got back in bed, she stopped. So I guess she was trying to tell me to go pee haha!

Best moment of the week: Registering was a lot of fun.. I even think Andrew enjoyed it! He especially got into the clothing part :). We had fun imagining all of these things being used by our baby girl.

What I'm looking forward to: Man, there's so many things! I'm looking forward to meeting her. I still love feeling her, even though a few of them have kind of hurt lately. I'm hoping though that I'll be able to see a foot or a handprint on my stomach from her soon.. That'd be awesome! I'm also looking forward to getting all of her nursery organized & officially put together once we start getting stuff for her. I'm so excited to hold this sweet baby girl in my arms!
