baby #2 | 25 weeks

How Far Along25 weeks!

Size of the BabyBaby W is the size of a head of cauliflower Buzz Lightyear! 

Symptoms/Sleep/Labor Signs: Still no swelling and my rings are happily in place. This is much different than my pregnancy with Natalie! I am still sleeping mostly on my stomach/slightly on my side. I did not sleep this well at this point in my pregnancy with Natalie and I will take it as long as it wants to stick around!

Bump/Belly Button/Weight Gain: The bump is still cute and little. At work, we often talk about how small I am for 25 weeks.  I have officially hit my pre-Natalie's pregnancy weight. It is so crazy to think that this was how much I weighed when I got pregnant with her and here I am now, more than halfway through this pregnancy. Mind blowing. 

Cravings/Aversions: I have had my Panera salad twice this week and I am not ashamed. It is everything to me. It's so perfect for the warm weather we've had this week!

Big Sister: I could not love her more. She is so much fun lately. She is becoming more and more aware that baby brother is coming and we talk about it often. I love to hear her ideas of what we should do with him and all the things she wants to show him. I was nervous about the addition but I think B and I have a solid plan to help with the transition (never have I ever been so happy for a July due date and to be married to a teacher!). 

Miss Anything: Wine. As the nights become nicer, I am missing sitting on the deck with a glass of wine and unwinding with B. Last Sunday's warm weather made me miss an ice cold white claw. My ginger ale just wasn't as appealing. [ps - if you haven't had white claw yet, I highly encourage you to find it and try it. It is so. dang. good. and perfect for day drinking... you know, if you're into that kind of thing.]

Best Moment: I have two this week! One was seeing some of our Lyco best friends at Ant and Chelsea's reception last weekend. I loved getting to see the guys and their lovely wives. It is so crazy to think of how far the four of them have come: 12 years, 4 weddings, 5.5 kids later :)

Monday we got to peak in on the babe :) I love getting to see him. He is weighing in at a whopping 1lb 10oz. While my previa is all gone (insert all the praise hands here), he is breach right now. Here's to hoping he gets the memo and turns his little booty around in the next 14ish weeks.

Can't Wait For: This weekend the weather has been perfect and beautiful. We have been living on the deck, soaking in the sun, taking walks around our neighborhood. It has been a much needed weekend of downtime.
