Baby Love: 25 wks

Pregnancy Highlights

Due Date:  11/18/11
Gestational Age:  25 3/7 wks
Once again, excuse the pitiful outfit -I'm all about comfort after work.
Size of baby:  About 14" and weighed 1 1/2 pounds at my last ultrasound
 Morning sickness: Mostly GONE!!!  So...thankful!  I still don't have much of an appetite, though and can only eat small portions. 
 Total weight gain/loss: Still minus 4 pounds (I've only gained 1 pound in the past month) -I'm considering changing my answer to +6 pounds because the weight I got down to is my goal.  We had such a hard time getting pregnant that I knew we were going to need IVF and had decided to do it in May, so I had planned on getting in better shape from Feb to May and losing 10 pounds.  Little did I know that God had other plans for us.  
Maternity Clothes:  I'm still on the border of needing them.  I have a few clothes that don't fit, but thankfully most items are still okay.  I wear scrubs to work and they still fit fine so far.  Unfortunately I don't look pregnant in my scrubs, I just look chubby. 
Gender:  Boy!  I think we have a name.  We have been calling him this name for a week or two trying to see if it fits, and if it does, I'll let everyone know. 
Highlights of the week:  1.  Little man is moving so...much!  I love feeling him kick and squirm.  He seems so active already, I think we may have a runner, swimmer, or soccer player developing.  You can even see my stomach move which kind of freaks Brian out, but I love it.   2.  Nursery is painted and we have the crib and bedding.  It's so cute!!  3.  Little man already is getting quite the closet of clothes, but we finally bought him some clothes and it was so fun.  4.  I'm falling more and more in love with this little guy.    
Lowlights of week:  1.  I've started feeling even more exhausted.  My job is getting harder and harder.  I had planned on working full time until I deliver, but I'm not so sure if I'm going to make it.  I think if I had an easier job I could make it, but I'm on my feet and running 90% of my day.  2.  Due to my tough work schedule I have been having a few contractions- don't worry not a big deal, just a few here and there - just something for me to keep an eye on. 
Comparison photos: 
Left is  21 wks and right 25 wks - I should have worn the same outfit for better comparison (but that outfit was even worse).  I think my stomach is finally bigger than my chest.   I really need to come up with better clothes to wear for my updates - believe it or not, but I do actually own some nice clothes. 


  1. Awww...look at your sweet baby bump! Lookin' good girl!

  2. You look FABULOUS!!! I love that you already have the crib, bedding and room painted! Ah, we have to get started asap!

  3. Okay, this has nothing to do with your baby, but I wanted Brian to know that we sang "Everyday" in church today, and I thought of him and how much he hates that song. Miss you guys.


Thanks for leaving me a message! Many Blessings!
