Week 25 Pregnancy Update!




25 week update:

How far along: week 25 day 1

How big is the baby: The size of a rutabaga (9 in, 1.7 lbs ish)

Cravings: I have craved hamburgers for the first time in my life the last few weeks. I love In and Out!!

Weight gain: 25 pounds. I have pretty much just stopped weighing myself at this point. I step on the scale at the doctor's office because they make me and that is it! I figure this really isn't the time in my life to be beating myself up about my weight.

Stretch Marks: Nothing new since the last update, I have been slathering the oil on my belly and inner and outer thighs at least twice a day.

Sleep: I have been sleeping super good the last few nights! I know it won't last but I'm going to enjoy it while it does. I haven't been waking up starving the last few nights either so that's awesome.

Thoughts: We had a follow up ultrasound yesterday. They found fluid on baby boys kidneys at my last appointment and they wanted to check back up on that to make sure it wasn't worse. The fluid is still there but from what they said it is pretty normal for little boys to get that and it will typically resolve itself by 36 weeks. They are going to keep monitoring it though just to be safe. They told us not to worry about it...I had to laugh when they said that because I am literally always worried about something with this little guy. Welcome to the rest of my life I guess!

4th of July Ready

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10

The 4th of July is one of my favorite holidays! The chance to bbq, see fireworks, spend time with family and friends, and celebrate this amazing country is something that just can't be beat! I also love that there are so many cute things in stores now to help show off your patriotism, rather than back in the day when everyone wore the Old Navy flag tees lol... To help prepare you for your 4th of July celebrations, we've gathered some of our favorite 4th of July pieces for you today on the blog! Happy Shopping! Can you believe summer is going by so fast?

XOXO!

Gender Reveal and 21 week update!









We found out that we are having a BOY yesterday! We couldn't be more excited for him to arrive. He gave the ultrasound tech quite the time trying to get a picture of his gender. She had to dig around for awhile and I had to get up and move around for a few minutes to try and get him to move out of the tight ball he was curled up in. It was such a neat experience to watch him move around in there!

21 week update:

How far along: week 21 day 1

How big is the baby: The size of a banana

Cravings: I have loved cereal from day one of this pregnancy but I am still craving sushi and fish.

Weight gain: 21 pounds. My weight gain has slowed down a lot from the beginning. I was gaining really quick for awhile there. I have been really trying to focus on eating more veggies, fruit and protein to avoid gaining too much more.

Stretch Marks: I've noticed some stretch marks on my breasts but other than that nothing new so far. My belly button is starting to poke out a little...it is such a weird thing to see, I've always had a very "inny" belly button.

Sleep: I sleep alright. I still wake up every 3-4 hours STARVING so I  get up and eat about twice a night. I used to eat only cereal at night because it was the only thing that didn't come back up but now that I've been feeling better I've been eating yogurt and bananas a lot for those late nights.

Thoughts: I am sooo excited to finally know what this little baby is! We held off buying anything until we found out the gender so I can finally start shopping :) I have started feeling some serious movement going on in my belly. Lots of kicking and punching and little flutters. Its is a very interesting feeling, I cant wait for him to get a little bigger so Jantz can feel him too.
