25 Weeks (Round 2)

How far along? 25 weeks and 3 days

Total weight gain/loss?  Up around 24 pounds - I haven't weighed in 3 days so I don't know the exact number.  But rest assured, I'm gaining, not losing weight.

Maternity clothes?  All day, every day.
Stretch marks?  Old ones are definitely getting darker.  And to top it off, I noticed some varicose veins on my leg this week.  

Sleep? Pretty good.  I am sleeping through the night without any need for bathroom break and I'm not terribly uncomfortable yet.

Best moment last week?  Picking my big brother and nephew up from the airport Wednesday night!  And spending the weekend with them.  So great to see them!!

Movement?  Oh yea.

Food cravings? Red meat, peanut butter and the chocolate/lavender scones from the vegan bakery near my house.

Food aversions? Nope.

Gender?  Almond Joy.

Labor signs?  Nope.

Belly button in/out?  More in than out, for the moment.

What I miss:  Red, red wine.

What I am looking forward to: Continuing this great weekend with my family!  We have some fun things on the agenda (started with a birthday celebration dinner for my dad last night, a day off work today - even though Lukas woke up at 6:30am ready to go for the day, a trip to Monkey Joes with the kiddos) and a zoo trip and baseball game to come!

Milestones: I am 95% certain we've picked a name.  First and Middle.  Still debating the Last though.


  1. Are you sharing the name? So excited to find out.

    1. Perhaps we can share with the grandparents...but we're still not 100% yet so not sharing with the public!
