25 Weeks

How Far Along: 25 weeks.... (24w1d by LMP, measuring 24w6d)

Total Weight Gained/Loss: ~15-17 lbs, depending on the day

Maternity Clothes: I don't think I will ever go back to regular pants again :-D

Sleep: At best, 2 hours at a time... between having to pee all the time, and finding a comfortable position, it's been hard.

Best Moment of the Week: Eric FINALLY was able to feel some kicks!  I loved seeing the look on his face.

Movement: Oh yeah, there is an octopus in there... the funny thing is, I wish I could feel them even more.  I hate when they stop!

Food Craving: Still big on the watermelon, and ice cream.  I had a major craving for donuts last week, but after eating 4, I never want to see a donut again.  All my cravings have been sweets or fruit.

Food aversions: Still eggs (scrambled or fried), although I did eat an omelet at the beach, but it was LOADED with cheese.  I'm getting better with chicken but it still isn't my favorite.

Morning sickness: I had one random spell of throwing up while at the beach in July.  I have no idea what caused it and it was over before I knew it, but its the only M/S I have had since the first trimester.

Gender: TWO BOYS!  Big healthy boys!

Labor Signs: None, thank GOD, I would freak out.

Belly Button: Reaching maximum capacity.  Some days, its totally stretched out, some days not so much, but no outtie yet.

Stretch Marks: So far, so dodging the bullet *knock on wood*

Wedding rings: Rough... I had to give up on wearing my diamond, but my wedding ring itself is also getting tight, especially with the heat.  My fingers are not a size 5.5 anymore, I guess!

Exercise: Only if sitting on my butt counts... or trying to clean the house.

What I miss: Alcohol...

What I'm looking forward to: Besides meeting the boys, right now I am super excited to switch the guest bedroom with the nursery.  We decided we needed more space for the nursery, so my parents are coming up the first weekend of Sept and we are gonna switch the rooms.  The guestroom will be tight, but oh well!!

Other NEW news this week: Nothing really...

Weekly Wisdom: I think I am too sleepy to have any wisdom.

Favorite item bought this week: Nothing bought, but I have added some fun things to my registry... I found it is 100% more fun to do online than in the store.

And of course, this week's bump shot, from this morning!


  1. Look how cute your baby bump is!! Love it!

  2. I love watching your bump grow. You can definitely tell the boys are growing now. :)

  3. You should be a maternity model! You look so adorable!
