25 weeks

How far along: 25w
Total weight gain/loss: +16 pounds.
How big is Baby: Baby is about the size of an eggplant, and is approximately 13.6-14.8 inches long.
Maternity Clothes: Yep. I bought a couple summer dresses, a long shirt to wear with my maternity leggings (love!) and a pair of shorts. I am ready for the warm weather.
Sleep: Same old, same old. But I'm getting used to these new sleep patterns and it's not too bad. His 3 or 4 am dance parties are getting stronger as he grows.
Movement: All the time! This little boy is active! He seems to respond to music and when Nick talks to him. I still love every single time I feel him move. It's the best, most reassuring feeling. 
Food cravings: Everything is good these days :)
Food aversions: Nada.
Gender: It's a BOY!
Symptoms: LOTS of movement. Stretching and growing belly. Vivid dreams. Peeing all.the.time. All around excitement and joy. How could I forget?!?! - calf cramps! They have started and they hurt!
Best moment this week: Not completely baby related, but finishing a majority of our house projects was a huge highlight of my week. The nursery is really coming along too. My Mom and I were debating on finding a new glider in the right color or sticking with the SUPER comfy one we found at the consignment store that needs to be reupholstered. After sitting in a dozen others, I realized just how much I love my chair! It's at the upholstery place now and I can't wait to see it done.
What I am looking forward to:  Our Las Vegas trip in two weeks. I need it so bad. Work is killing me right now.


  1. You are lookin good missy! Getting closer! Question- how much DOES it cost to reapolster?? I found a FABULOUS comfy chair NOT the right color so I keep passing on it- wondering if it's worth it...thoughts?? :)

  2. It's actually pretty expensive to reupholster :/ If the chair you love is cheap enough, it might be worth it. I'm sure it varies by location, size of chair, fabric, the place who does it, etc. For ours, it was the same cost as the chair was brand new retail. Good luck!
