Bump Day ~ 25 Weeks



How far along? 25 weeks, baby is the size of a head of cauliflower!

Weight gain/loss: No news is good news at this point.

Maternity Clothes?  I feel like I'm at a bit of a stale mate wardrobe wise.  I refuse to buy anything new with fall around the corner, but I'm sick of the same rotation over and over and over again.

Sleep: Not great.  Not horrible.  Waking up at 5:30 for no apparent reason on a Sunday sucks though.  Not to mention how draining this face melting heat wave has been.

Stretch marks: Nada.

Best moment this week: We have a name!  And I sorta love it.  And maybe ordered a monogrammed gown/hat set for the hospital.....and got some free personalized thank you notes during a shutterfly sale.  Ironically, I looked back in the archives and realized we chose/announced Jamie's name this same week!  This go around we've decided not to share, at least not on social media.  So unless you're family or I know you in real life, you'll be waiting another 15 weeks to find out!

Movement: Noticing some kicks above the belly button!

Food cravings: Gimme all the chocolate!

Gender: Team pink!

Labor Signs: Yeah, no.

What I Miss:  Brushing my teeth without gagging.  With Jamie this passed around 14 weeks when the nausea left.  Not this time!  Baby girl apparently has something against oral hygiene.

What I'm looking forward to:  Fall.  We really lucked out with a mild summer, but the past week has been hell with no relief in sight.  I'm ready for cool, crisp mornings/nights!

Weekly Wisdom: If you wake up at 5:00AM on a Sunday, don't look at your phone.  Then you'll be tempted to catch up on the world and will never go back to sleep.

Milestones: Picked a name!

Big Brother:  I've tried to get him to feel kicks, but they're too sporadic and not quite strong enough for an impatient 4 year old.  He will put his hand on my belly and then immediately say he felt one, even when I know the baby hasn't even moved.  It's sweet none the less so I don't dash his hopes and dreams, but I can't wait to see his reaction when he really feels one!
