25 weeks

Pregnancy Highlights

How far along? 25 weeks

Baby Size: She's the size of a rutabaga... like anyone knows what that is! In everyday terms, she is somewhere between 13 and 14 inches long and weighs about 1.5 pounds.

Total weight gain: I'm slowly gaining the weight! I've gained somewhere between 10-12 pounds! It seems each week it goes up and up! 

Maternity clothes? Not yet. I tried on a few maternity items over the weekend but they all swallowed me whole. I guess I'm in that in between stage!

Stretch marks? Not a one.

Sleep:  Ahhh! I'm loving sleep and I'm back to going to bed early so by the time my alarm clock goes off, I'm already awake! It's a great feeling!

Best moment this week:  Feeling Harper move around so much more! Also, purchasing Harper's glider and ottoman for her nursery!

Miss Anything? I could still do without the indegestion but if she comes out with a head full of hair, it'll all be worth it! haha

Movement: She's starting to move alot these days! Still mostly at night though!

Food cravings: Sweet tea and frosted flakes! 

Anything making you queasy or sick: No

Gender: She's a girl! Harper Londyn Holt!

Labor Signs:  Thank goodness no! We had a scare over the weekend and thought I had gone into preterm labor. Thankfully, I just have a rare and extreme form of round ligament stretching. Unlike most people's rls, mine lasts for hours at a time and is the equivalent to feeling like I'm being stabbed to death. It's definitely no fun but by the time contractions roll around, I should be good with pain! haha

Symptoms: Indegestion and round ligament stretching

Belly Button in or out? In and it's still getting smaller 

Wedding rings on or off?  On

Mood:  Happy

Looking forward to: Going back to the doctor in two weeks to see Harper!


  1. Glad you weren't in pre-term labor...that must have been scary. What glider did you go with? Jealous that your sleep is still great...mine just started being not so restful. I hope it's just a fluke lol.

    1. Well I purchased a glider & ottoman set I found on craigslist that a couple had barely used. It's pretty similar to this one that I had found at Walmart (http://mobile.walmart.com/m/phoenix;jsessionid=1817217604C8CA7F43798E5BA3E4F221#ip/Baby-Relax-Glider-and-Ottoman-Espresso/16792407) We debated purchasing an expensive one from Babies r Us but a friend of ours bought a nice one from there & it broke after awhile & then she purchased one from Walmart & had great reviews for it so I guess the more expensive isn't always better!!!

Hearing from you ladies always make my day, so please let me know you stopped by!
