25 Weeks

Wednesday, February 3, 2016

how far along: 25 Weeks (I can't believe it!)

baby size: the size of an acorn squash and weighing a pound and a half!

baby's progress: nails are growing, baby is starting to wiggle fingers and toes

weight gain: This feels absolutely insane but 15 pounds!!!! I had a huge jump between my last doctors appointment and my doc assured me that the big growth was from the baby growing a ton.. it really does feel like overnight I went from still kind of being able to hide my belly to WOAH MAMA!

stretch marks: not that I've noticed

sleep: I've had a few random nights where I've really struggled to fall asleep but overall doing great!

maternity clothes: I'm still wearing a ton of my normal clothes, just paired with my maternity jeans!

gender: a precious baby boy, we're thrilled!

movement: I feel sweet boy constantly moving around, especially when I'm laying still on my side.  Some nights before I fall asleep it feels almost like he's a little gorilla shaking his cage :)

best moment this week: I've gotten back into a regular workout routine and it's made me feel so energized and overall just like myself. I'm so grateful that I've finally been able to shake this crazy nausea and hit the gym!

looking forward to: my family baby shower is Valentine's Day weekend, it will be so sweet to celebrate with family and start stocking the nursery! Oh yeah! And I turn 25 next week.

food cravings: I still don't feel like I've really had one. I did eat a particularly good superfood wrap from Which Which this week that I'd like to order again.. but I can't say I'm truly craving anything.

anything making you queasy or sick: the smell of coffee! Over Thanksgiving I threw up in my friend Kayla's coffee mug (sorry Kayla!) and in just the past few weeks if I smell coffee at all I feel terrible.. yikes!

labor signs: nope!

symptoms: acne still going strong, and some back and shoulder pain.. oh and NESTING like crazy! I've always looked forward to nesting because let's be honest, I've been nesting for years.. but this is so different. It's like I feel anxiety about how I need to get our house cleaner and more organized than it's ever been. It's so weird!


  1. This makes me want to come to Texas and take maternity photos wahhhhhhhh!!!!!!

  2. Yes to the month of weight gain! Sounds like you are taking great care of yourself; trust me keeping up your workouts is one of the best things you can be doing! :-)

  3. Victoria, you look beautiful!! And so glad to hear that you're feeling a lot better :)

  4. You look awesome! How fun that your baby shower is coming so quickly!

  5. Gosh I just want to hug you! Yay for baby growth! And happy early birthday!! :)

  6. Yay for baby showers and nesting! I can't believe you're already 25 weeks!
