25 Weeks

How far along? 25 weeks, 5 days 
Baby Size: 1.5 pounds and 13.5 inches long. (That's a quarter pound and an inch bigger than last week!)
Total weight gain: 15 pounds
Maternity clothes? Still a mix.
Stretch marks? No, but my tummy has been pretty itchy lately. 
Sleep: Some nights I've had a hard time getting comfortable. I'm so glad we got that body pillow a couple months ago! 
Best moment(s) this week: Lots of time cooking and trying new recipes and date night out at a local Mexican restaurant.
Miss Anything? Sushi.
Movement: Friday morning I felt hiccups for the first time! 
Food cravings: Anything with a lot of flavor. Bland foods sound awful right now.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Not a thing!
Gender: Girl :)
Labor Signs: No.
Symptoms: Braxton Hicks contractions and a growing belly!
Belly Button in or out? Still in.
Wedding rings on or off? On. 
Mood: I've been really eager to start getting the nursery ready. We found a couple of cribs we liked that were out of stock, but we have a different one on the radar now.
Looking forward to: Another road trip next week! This one will be shorter though. We're heading to Virginia for a few days to see Matt's family!

Hope everyone has a lovely weekend! 
We'll be staying inside as much as possible since it's supposed to be 106 degrees today!

  1. Getting big, girl! So cute :) Glad you're feeling well!

  2. Good question Kasey! It's a root vegetable. I just looked it up, and it's a yellow turnip.
