25 weeks

How far along: 25 weeks

How big is your baby: almost 2lbs, about the size of an eggplant

Total weight gain: 18lbs

Sex: BOY!

Maternity clothes: almost everything I wear!  The more stretch and give the clothes have, the better!

Stretch marks: not yet & praying they don’t make an appearance anytime soon!

 Movement: Feeling him so much more frequently now! I love it!!

Sleep: I need more than I am getting and I am no longer sleeping through the night…guess I had to get used to that sooner or later!

Symptoms: Crazy emotions, mild cramps, forgetfulness, crazy emotions (did I just say that?)

Best moment this week: Seeing him in 3D on the ultrasound!  He is looking so much like BL!  And although I felt a little bit like I cheated to see him in 3D, I could not get enough!!  Also fun, was watching him nod yes when the ultrasound tech said “well you’re a cute little one, aren’t you?”     

Food cravings: Not nearly as much as the first trimester; still the occasional red meat craving and sometimes fruit.   

Food aversions: chicken…I had tried it once mixed into a dish and it was ok, but chicken alone is awful so I try to stay away!

Labor signs: not yet

Belly button in or out: in, and getting flatter.  Not sure if it will ever pop or not?

What I miss: sleeping more, peeing less and running.  I really miss running!

What I'm looking forward to: getting the nursery put together, and finally holding my little man!  



  1. Ah you look fantastic!! I bet the 3D was really neat! Cant' wait to see the nursery! :)

  2. you look SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO CUTE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. Good luck! I just had a baby in May and it's not something I'm willing to do again,but my Emily is worth it!

  4. Already 25 weeks?! Craziness. You are looking fabulous though!
