25 Week Pregnancy Update

pregnancy, pregnant, baby bump, belly, second trimester, 6 months pregnant, 7 months pregnant

How far along? 25 weeks 5 days
Total weight gain/measurements: Just about 36.5 inches around.
Maternity clothes: I got two more maternity t-shirts at Old Navy this weekend. I got a mint green one and a light gray one. I also bought a pink maxi dress for summer. It is a maternity dress but it can double as a nursing dress because the top is a wrap style, which is good for breast feeding. Luckily for me everything was on sale! :)
Stretch marks: I thought I saw one near my belly button but now I think it was just a mark from my pajamas while I was sleeping. Ha ha!
Sleep: Most nights it's fine.
Best moment this week: I was really happy that I was able to put together a cute outfit this weekend to wear to a bridal shower. (As a comparison, today I'm wearing my husband's sweatshirt.)
Miss anything? For some reason I've been missing coffee a lot this week. Maybe it's because I'm getting more tired as the weeks go on.
Movement: The baby definitely has some specific active times each day. There are a couple of hours that it moves a lot in the morning and then around 6pm my belly starts going crazy! I don't feel a lot of big kicks during the rest of the day, just the occasional movement here and there. The pregnancy app I have said that in the last couple of weeks the baby should have started to get into a sleeping/waking cycle and I definitely think that has happened.

Food Cravings: Cheese.
Anything making you queasy or sick? If I eat too much sugar I feel a little queasy. That happened this weekend after the bridal shower I was at. I had a couple of brownies and a cupcake. I didn't feel that great after and I think that's why.
Gender: We don't know.
Labor signs: No but I have had two dreams this week about specifically telling people that I was not in labor yet.
Symptoms: Steve noticed a slightly dark line starting to show up on my belly. It is really faint and doesn't quite make it all the way to my belly button, but it's definitely there. I think they call that line the linea negra and I'm wondering how high up it will end up getting. I had to have him angle the mirror in our bedroom for me so I could see it because I found that I really can't see the bottom part of my belly anymore. Ha ha!
Belly button in or out? Still in...for now.
Wedding rings on or off? On.
Happy or moody most of the time: Happy unless I'm tired or hungry.
Looking forward to: A free weekend. :)

Thanks for reading!
