Bump Update: 25 Weeks






Baby Size: Size of a cauliflower! That explains why my bump isn't messing around anymore! :) 

Feeling: Much better emotionally this week. It has been hard to watch our sweet pup not feel well, but the upside to that is that I've gotten a bigger glimpse of what an AMAZING dad Preston is going to be. He's slept on the couch multiple nights in a row to take Sebastian potty 4-5 times, which makes for sleepless nights but he is so sweet about it. Both Preston and I have also felt so thankful to family and friends for being so helpful and thoughtful - it really has made us feel so loved to know that there are so many people cheering on our little family with both pregnancy and puppy life. 

Pregnancy wise, I have felt amazing! It is incredible to watch my body grow and stretch to accommodate my growing babe. This is hands down the coolest thing my body has ever done. 

Food Cravings/ Aversions: Nothing, I'm starting to think these pregnancy cravings are a big myth. ;) I did definitely love having Lick ice cream recently, I foresee more of it in my future!

Symptoms: I had my first charlie horse of pregnancy this week! No thank you! I had just read that they were common during pregnancy and thought I was going to be lucky and avoid them. I think it was a perfect storm of a really good leg workout, not enough water and sleeping on the couch (P was out of town and I was on Sebastian duty) that led to it. I will absolutely be making sure I get enough water and calcium from here on out! 

Weight Gain: +13 lbs at my appt last week (which was at 24w6d)

Projects: This week was really productive! Because our sweet Sebastian has had some bad tummy troubles, we haven't been able to leave the house very often. The upside to that was that I got a lot done on the home front! My mom came over one afternoon (have I mentioned how much I LOVE my parents living in Austin) and we sewed the crib skirt - it was such a fun time and I am so happy with how it turned out. Then my sister came over and we did the gallery wall in the nursery, projects are SO much more fun with helpers! We also got another estimate on our fence being rebuilt, which we're going to move forward with. I can't wait to work on our back/ front yard a bit more this spring! 

Dear Baby: Next to being a wife to your daddy, being your mom is my favorite job I've ever had. You impressed the midwives with your kicks at our last appointment and I already got to pull out my proud mom card, "Oh yes, he is verrrry strong." I've had so much fun working on your nursery more this week and day dream about the day I will be able to hold you in there. Love you so much my sweet boy!!
