Pregnancy Update: 25 Weeks

I'll be back with more on our anniversary and such later this week. For now, a bump update! Linking up with Kristin.

How far Along: 25 weeks

Size of Baby: Baby is over13 inches long and weighs a pound and a half or more.


Gender: Baby girl. Norah Paige.

Weight Gain: I'm up about 21 pounds and I swear every ounce of it is in my belly. I keep telling myself that at least. I truly feel like I swallowed a basketball.

Feeling: That depends on what time of day you ask me! Sometimes I feel great. Sometimes I feel like I just got hit by a bus, after running a marathon.

Maternity Clothes: Loving them. The only non maternity clothes I can fit into are leggings, athletic shorts, and a few shirts that were too big to begin with, or are very long in length.

Nursery: Haven't added anything to this in a couple of weeks. I still love going and just sitting in the rocker. It's def the most relaxing room in our house. As far as things to buy for the room, we are done besides a few items I'm waiting on in case we're gifted them from our registry.



Movement: Loving all her little moves and shakes. I still haven't felt anything strong enough to be painful. And I can't really differentiate a kick from say a punch or some other move. But I do feel something multiple times a day, and I get excited every single time.

Symptoms: Difficulty getting out of bed, off the couch, bending over, etc. Achy shoulders and back. Getting winded more easily. Definitely getting more physically exhausted if I try to run errands or do anything that requires being on your feet for long periods of time.

Sleep: Eh. Pretty good, but I'm afraid that may be coming to an end. I was going on to some friends and family members this weekend about how I've always slept like a rock, and that had continued since becoming pregnant. Until last night. Our bedroom gets really hot (or cold in the winter) if we don't carefully regulate the temperature. I woke up burning up and so achy that I was just too uncomfortable to sleep the rest of the night. It didn't help that Sadie was FREAKING out over a storm. Gotta love 80 pound dogs who get scared and jump into bed right on top of you.

I really enjoy the "There's Something About Mary" hair look.
Cravings: The occasional sweet tooth. Cereal. Trail mix.

What I Miss: The ability to move around easily. Except I don't actually miss this that much, because I love that I am finally really looking pregnant.

Best Moment This Week: Seeing lots of friends and family.

Looking Forward To: Baby showers. Labor Day weekend. Seeing if I pass my glucose test at my next dr appt.

Thankful For: Almost being in the third trimester, and a healthy pregnancy and baby girl.

"Well, you look like you ate a basketball. Haha! Kidding aside, you look lovely, Brittany. I can only imagine how hard it is for you to adjust to your daily routine, but it'll be worth it once your baby girl is already in your arms. Nora Paige is a nice name, btw. Good luck on your remaining weeks! :)
