Baby Bumpdate–25 Weeks

Wow! I am on my last few weeks of the 2nd trimester. It certainly has gone by fast.
I am so excited about this good weather–it means that not only is the school year quickly ending, but the day I meet my son is getting closer.
Side Effects
– I’m definitely bigger. My wardrobe is stretching. I have to go shopping for maternity clothes this week.
– Exhaustion with no limits! My goodness gracious!
– Rhys is definitely my son–he wiggles almost non-stop. He actually kicked Justin in the face yesterday.
– Sore backs in the morning. It’s hard to get comfy, even with pillows everywhere. I also feel bad for Justin–I wiggle all the time in bed, now. Sometimes, I’ll even get up, walk around the living room and sometimes even fall asleep on the couch. Darn, son. =)
– I’m beginning to feel like a turtle. True, I’m not that big to the average eye, but compared with my normal body size, it is getting hard to get up!
– I am now the heaviest I’ve ever weighed (the same I weighed in 12th grade).
Cravings
– Fruity stuff: fruits, fruity drinks, fruity smoothies, fruity salads, fruity flavored candy.
Other Things
– People are actually beginning to notice  am pregnant now.
– Justin can feel Rhys kick now. I love it when Justin puts his hand on my tummy to feel our son, and when he talks to our son.
– Because this week is my school’s Spring Break, I’ve had the time to go work out. I’ve missed it so much! Thankfully, Rhys is quiet and and behaves while I work on the treadmill and lift weights.

Also, we are doing a VLOG next week! Any questions you have for us?

  • You're so cute and the weather is looking pretty nice where you are!! Getting closer and closer to baby time!

  • You are adorable. One of the best parts about pregnancy was when Daddy could feel the kicks and movements, too. I loved sharing that with him.

  • Our Little Britches always seems to know when his daddy is home, and which direction he is. I say that because Little Britches will kick in the direction of his daddy, and wiggle over closer to that side of things. I think it's adorable. It shows that he knows his daddy's voice, and that's precious to me. 🙂
