25 Weeks

Size of Baby: 1.5 pounds and 13.5 inches long, about the weight of a cauliflower.

How I'm Feeling: I'm still feeling really great! I can tell baby Bennett is doing some serious growing because by 4:00 in the afternoon, I can hardly hold my eyes open. I just want to crawl in bed and go to sleep. Other than that I can't really complain. I'm taking advantage of how I feel by getting as much accomplished as I can right now.

Cravings/Appetite: I'm still trying to eat a lot more fruits and greens. A lot of salads for me this week. I'm doing my best to stay away from sugar. I get way too carried away with it every time I'm pregnant and I need to do better.
Clothes: No changes here. Although I had a fleeting moment yesterday where I thought to myself I should probably lay off the heels then I realized that was just crazy. :)

Movement: Sooooo much more movement. I can see him moving from the outside now! It makes me smile so big. When I finally get to settle down for the night and relax and focus on it, it's just constant movements. I love it! Best part of pregnancy, hands down.

Changes in Me: I told Scott I must be in denial because I'm a lot less anxious about bring a new baby home than I was at the beginning of this pregnancy. I keep telling myself that I've got this. Ha! Denial for sure.
Baby Purchases: I found Bennett's coming home outfit this week! It's so sweet. I went with the preemie size. Campbell's newborn sized coming home outfit swallowed him and it looked ridiculous. It made me cry. Actually, sob hysterically (hormones after birth are crazy) and I don't want that to happen again. Bennett probably won't be as tiny as Campbell was but I still think it will fit. If not, I have some backups. I'm prepared this time! No crying over clothes that are too big on my baby. Ha!

Favorite Moment This Week: Getting Bennett's nursery really pulled together (on paper) was so much fun. I can't wait to see what it looks like when we're finished!

Looking Forward To: Thursday. Because we will officially be in the double digits and I will have only 99 days left until Bennetts due date. Crazy!
