25 Weeks

I can't believe I'm already 25 weeks. It's flying by!

April 25, 2011

How far along:
25 weeks!

Total Weight Gained:
I'm guessing I gained a few pounds back from all the weight I lost. I still have a while to go before I reach my pre-pregnancy weight.

How big is baby? Nugget is 13 1/2 inches long and weighs around 1 1/2 pounds.

How baby is growing: Nugget is beginning to exchange his/her long, lean look for some baby fat. He/She is also growing more hair — and if you could see it, you'd now be able to discern its color and texture. babycenter.com

Maternity Clothes: I'm still wearing my regular clothes, but I've been wearing some empire waist items to show off my belly more!

Sleep: I'm starting to wake up more frequently to use the bathroom, and a few times a night, I get woken up by braxton hick's contractions.

Best Pregnancy Moment of the Week:
Showing off my belly to my family. They finally believe there's a baby in there! Also, we've been putting new baby stuff around the house...new spoons in the kitchen drawer, baby wash and lotion in the bathroom closet, etc. It's starting to feel real!

: Nugget is constantly moving! Lots of tumbles, kicks, and punches!

Food Cravings: No cravings yet.

Food Aversions:
I'm still not a big fan of any food, but my appetite is bigger.

Morning Sickness:
Zofran is still a daily staple.

We didn't find out!

Strong and frequent Braxton Hick's contractions, nausea morning to night, gagging, vomiting, (TMI one-still extremely constipated thanks to the Zofran, Iron, and Prenatal Vitamin), and mood swings.

Exercise: Getting moderate exercise 4-5 days a week.

What I miss:
Feeling normal. I honestly forget what it's like to not feel sick!

What I'm looking forward to:
My 26 week appointment, and getting the glucose test (the following week) over with!

25 Week Picture:

I'm going to cheat, and post a picture that Grant took last night. When we got home, Nugget was curled up into a tight ball, and sticking straight out of my belly. It was so cute!



  1. Well, lookie there! I think you might be pregnant!

  2. ooooo.... I see a TINY bump :) yay! You look great!

  3. Aww! You finally look pregnant! I love it.

  4. Even from last week, there's a big difference! It really is a baby! :)

    Those little kicks and jabs from inside are the best!

  5. I can see the baby bump, but just barely. Ha! ;)

  6. You look so cute!!! I can't wait to find out if it's a boy or girl!!!

  7. Oh, I can't wait to have newborn stuff around the house again!

  8. I can't believe that you only have 15 more to go! It is going by fast, then again I am not the one who is pregnant. ;-)

  9. over 13 inches already - wow!!! can't believe you are at 25 weeks already. You look so refreshed in that pic despite how crappy you've been feeling!

  10. What a gorgeous picture. Again, you look great. Looks like your little bump is growing!

  11. I just hate that you've been so sick! That's so wrong! :( I'm glad your belly is pokin' out though. It's sure cute :):)
