25 weeks!

How far along? 25 weeks
Baby's size: 13.5 inches head to toe :)
Maternity clothes? Yes yes yes. Stomach shows if not, all shirts are now too short! and....just bought the largest bras in Victoria's Secret. not exaggerating. this is not cool!!
Stretch marks? nope
Sleep: still can't seem to wake up at a decent hour... but in the opposite way! 5:45 and 6 am are now familiar times to me. goodbye sleep!
Best moment this week: Laine and Jill got to feel her kick while they were home which was fun! I also get to feel her kickboxing sessions regular and wonder what in the world someone that little could be doing in there to be kicking and punching that hard! Started our registry this week, which was fun, exhausting, and overwhelming! (mom had to buy me a "maternity support" in the middle of it, basically a back brace that holds up your stomach. i proudly wore it all around the store, ha!). Seriously looking at cribs, strollers and car seats now, feeling more and more like real parents!!
Movement: yep, lots! she's even started to move some when I'm not completely still. very strong, energetic little one!
Food cravings:  not really. trying to eat a lot of protein bc I'm told it makes you feel better and you need it anyways. Drinking a lot of milk and chocolate milk. mmm!
Anything you loved before that you absolutely cannot eat anymore?: coffee isn't very appetizing unless its something fancy from starbucks
Have you started to show yet: yes, very much so! lots of tummy touching and questions about baby from everyone :) its fun! (but also crazy to see yourself in the mirror and realize you look like that!)
Gender prediction: still girl :) we do have one more sonogram in the next couple weeks, so we can double check then!
Labor Signs: nope
Belly Button in or out? in, but somehow it kinda looks out at times through shirts
Wedding rings on or off? Off! still wearing my substitute ring, even it is tight at times now. yikes.
Happy or Moody most of the time: happy. Mostly very happy and excited but much more tired than i have been. Happy tears threaten often, definitely have my moody moments though!
Weekly Wisdom: This girl is going to be here before we know it!! Everything seems to be coming fast now. Also, she is somehow already so cute!! :)
Milestone: Losing the ability to sleep well. I guess I'm officially pregnant now. :) And little girl is past the 24 week viability mark which we are very excited about! :) Also, first Christmas of our lives with a little one (sort of). So much fun! We definitely got lots of pink stuff!! Thanks family!!
