25 weeks

Here we are, another few weeks down! It's so hard to believe that in just two weeks I will be in my third trimester. Weeks 23 and 24 were by far my favorite weeks of pregnancy so far. I feel like I have finally reached a good place with this pregnancy and am feeling really really good!

how far along: 25 weeks, 1 day! Only 15 weeks (or less) to go : )

baby size: We haven't had an ultrasound since 18 weeks, but he is still measuring ahead of schedule according to my belly measurements. He should be around 13 1/2 inches and 1 1/2 pounds. Roughly the size of a rutabaga (I have no idea what that is...)

baby's progress: BT is still growing and kicking away. 

weight gain: This girl has put on a few lbs since the last update. 2 weeks ago at the doctor I was up 12 lbs. I'll chalk it up to the fact that I can finally eat. 

stretch marks: Nope, & so thankful!

sleep: Still pretty good thanks to my Snoogle pillow

gender: BOY BOY BOY!! Bennett Tucker : )

Bennett has been moving a ton lately and making his presence well known. He is extremely active after I take a shower and relax on the couch. Adam and I (okay, really more me..) love sitting and watching my belly. It's so fun to be able to see his movements from the outside. 

best moment this week: making it another full week with NO meds!!!! See ya Zofran! FINALLY!

looking forward to: Finishing the nursery! I have it roughly planned out but have to make a few more big purchases before I will be able to start on the decorative parts. So far though I am loving how it's turning out. 

food cravings: No cravings recently. 

weirdest food I ate this week: I had nachos and cinnamon rolls for dinner one night..and I don't feel bad about it at all. 

anything making you queasy or sick: NO, & THANK YOU JESUS! Y'all have no idea how excited I am that I have officially be Zofran free for almost 2 full weeks. Being constantly sick for 23 straight weeks is no fun at all. Here's to really enjoying the rest of my pregnancy!

labor signs: Nope

what I miss: Being able to wear regular pants.... I still have a few pairs that I can wear but they aren't the comfiest. The rubber band trick and belly band are working like a charm right now. 

symptoms: Honestly, other than my belly getting pretty big recently I have been feeling so good!

things that suck: No more mid-day naps. I really think teachers should get a small nap time.. 

things that don't suck: Feeling better. I truly am so thankful that right as I went back to work my sickness pretty much went away over night. I was so worried about starting a new school year dealing with morning all day sickness. Work has been going SO good and my class is THE BEST. 


  1. Ahhh! That is SO great! So happy you are feeling better!

  2. So glad you're feeling better. I can't wait for BT to be'll make an amazing mommy!
