food, travel, lifestyle, and a hearty serving of motherhood

25 Weeks!

Just wanted to do a quick baby bump check-in here before heading into the weekend!

Weeks: 25 today!

25 Weeks

Weight gain: Actually haven’t stepped on a scale in a few weeks. I have an OB appt next week, so I’ll provide an update on this next time!

What I’m wearing: My go-to Athleta stretchy tanks, elastic waist shorts from Old Navy, and flip flops or sandals!

Sleep: I’ve been waking up feeling more rested lately, which is awesome.

Miss anything? I could use a prenatal massage! I got quite a few of them when I was pregnant with Colin and they were WONDERFUL.

Baby movement: Lots of baby kicks and wriggles in the last week. Richard was finally able to see the kicks, now that they are strong enough to be visible on the outside!

Currently craving: Super intense flavors. Poke bowls (see title picture) and açaí bowls. And cheese. And ice cream. Mmm…

Annoyances and symptoms: Heartburn.

Belly button: Still an innie, but very shallow…


Emotions: Reading through some of my favorite bloggers’ birth stories has me a bit emotional and wondering how Colin will adjust to being a big brother. I’m almost glad that he will still be too young to fully grasp the concept for a little while.

Best moment in the last week: Watching Colin laugh hysterically during his new favorite game of “pull Daddy’s glasses off his face”. And hearing his little voice. He is trying so hard to repeat words now. His favorite words are doggy, kitty (sounds like “titty”), hungry, moon, bubbles, cheese, and truck.

Looking forward to: Hearing little baby boy’s heartbeat at my OB appt on Wednesday.

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

  1. LOOK AT DAT BUMP! So cute, miss you 💕

  2. Isn’t it so darling hearing one’s baby say those first few words? Love it. So cute. And I am sure he loved that glass pulling game. I wonder if he still does?

    “Poke bowls and açaí bowls- sounds yummy. Clearly I have not lived! never ever had either, if you can believe it. In fact, funnily enough, I’m still not sure I really know what Poke is. lol.

    What a treasure you are building here t for you family to be able to go back and remember all this one day. And your blog is so well designed. Great job. Now, one thing that would be great to add would be a “previous post” link or button so one doesn’t have to click the side bar months to work one’s way back. 🙂
