{week 25}

25 weeks 

Week 25 (Nov 17 – Nov 23)

This week was a nice short work-week, followed by probably the best holiday ever for a pregnant girl: Thanksgiving!  I must say I thoroughly enjoyed spending the entire day eating, and not feeling bad about it one bit.  YUM.  Oh, and it was also nice to have some quality family time. :)  As usual I also went Black Friday shopping {which now involves staying up super late on Thanksgiving as opposed to waking up super early on Friday…and I’m not too terribly fond of that change, just for the record}.  This year was a bit of a dud for me, and I actually didn’t end up buying anything!  I know, crazy isn’t it?!  I still had fun running around with the cousins, in what is becoming our yearly shopping tradition. :)

In the spirit of Thanksgiving I have to say that this year we have a lot to be thankful for.  We are so blessed that our family is about to grow by one, and that so far everything has gone smoothly. I am SO thankful for this little girl, and it’s pretty crazy how much I love her already, even though I have yet to meet her. Ok, ok, enough mushy stuff.

Size of baby: cauliflower (like, the whole head of cauliflower – woah)

Total weight gain/loss:  26 lbs.  until I’m told otherwise. :)

Maternity clothes? my order from Old Navy came in, and totally made my day!  I have still been trying to squeeze into a few non-maternity things here and there, but those days are quickly coming to an end. 

Stretch marks? Not yet

Sleep: what’s that?

Symptoms: still going strong with the back pain, and a constantly stuffy nose.  I’m quite thankful that I sit in a chair all day at my job, there is just no way I could be on my feet all that time. 

Best moment this week: Thanksgiving!  Everything about it was great ~ the turkey, the family time, daydreaming about how different it will be next year with our additional family member :)

Movement: all day every day it seems like.  Baby girl gave her Grandma and Grandpa Henry an early Christmas present and let them both feel her kick on Thanksgiving.

Food cravings: it was turkey and everything Thanksgiving related, but I satisfied that one a few times over. :)

Anything making you queasy or sick: nope!

Have you started to show yet: most definitely.

Gender: GIRL!!!!!!

Belly Button in or out? still holding on as an innie.

Wedding rings on or off? back on, and haven’t had to come off again yet…

Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy ~ of course that is subject to change at the drop of a hat.

Looking forward to: having our maternity pictures taken this weekend ~ normally these would be done later in pregnancy {with a bigger belly}, but I wanted to use them for our holiday cards, so we’re just doing them a bit early.  with all of the photos I’ve been taking lately, I’m incredibly excited to be on the other side of the camera for once!

  1. YAY!!!!!!! (I'm pretty sure 90% of my comments begin this way) I CANNOT wait to see the maternity pics. You are perfectly pregnant for pictures right now. All belly. Oh, I can't wait. Plus, I love that shirt you have on... very pretty!!!
    PS. CJ and I went out for black friday and was disappointed as well. The only thing I bought was a $110 coat from Pacsun for $40.. but, we had fun running around the parking lot like little kids.. :)


Whatcha got to say??
