25 Weeks

How far along? 25w0d and the size of a head of cauliflower (or a squash according to my phone app).  He's ~13.6 inches and around 1.5 lbs.  He can grasp his hands and wiggle his fingers and toes (which are also forming nails).

Weight loss/gain:  +21 lbs.  Ugh.

Maternity clothes: 50/50.  I wore non maternity clothes yesterday and was fine and have a non maternity dress to wear to the wedding tonight. I've given up on non maternity jeans, though.

Symptoms:  My colon still sucks - coconut water and hot water with lemon have had no effect on it.  Getting some more aches and pains and cardio workouts have gotten harder. Running is much harder this go 'round.

Sex (of baby):  It's a BOY!!!

Name: Still nothing. I kind of discussed it with  my mom on Mother's Day, but J and I haven't gotten anywhere.  He vetoed Owen (I'm still lobbying for it) and I vetoed Jackson.  All I know is it will not be an 'A' name because I don't want to be those people that name all their kids name with the same first letter.

Sleep: Not bad, but I'm still always tired.  Pregnant with a toddler is SO much more tiring than being pregnant as a first time mom.

Best moment this week? Getting to hear the little guy's heartbeat on Tuesday at my appt.

Movement: Quite a bit, even with my anterior placenta.  He was especially active after my ice cream bar last night (and yeah, that's really helping the weight gain...)

Food cravings:  Can't get enough fruit.

Belly button in or out?  In

What I miss?  Not feeling like a whale.

What I'm looking forward to?  Getting dressed up for the wedding tonight and having a date night (they are few and far between).

Milestones:  I don't know - inching closer to 2nd tri?

What I'm nervous about:  Leaving Andrew with a new babysitter tonight. It's giving me some anxiety.

And me this morning.  I'm working from home so you will have to excuse the hairdo (or lack thereof).  Not sure why I thought it was a good idea to post a bare belly pic!:


  1. hope you had fun at the wedding and everything was fine with the new sitter :) you look absolutely fabulous! Not sure where you're hiding those 20 pounds...seriously don't sweat them! enjoy those ice cream bars!
    also, i LOVE the name owen :)

    1. Thank you! We did have a good time and the sitter did great. Makes me happy to know that we could have more date nights in our future.

      Pretty sure the 20 lbs are in my boobs, belly and butt/thighs. I'm trying not to focus on it so much, but the numbers on the scale are climbing quickly and I'll admit to being pretty depressed about it. I know I need to get over it, though.

      I'm still trying to lobby for Owen - we'll see what happens!
