25 weeks (baby #2)

25 weeks - baby is the size of an acorn squash

How far along: 25weeks!
Swelling: No
Stretch marks: No
Sleep: I have good days and bad days when it comes to sleep - but since I'm no longer studying, Harper's nap time has become mine and baby#2's nap time! I also have to get up at least once if not more to pee every night.
Best moment of the week:  Enjoyed a fun day at Magic Kingdom with Harper this week - it wasn't so hot out and the crowds weren't as bad as usual. We had a fun day seeing tons of princesses and characters. Enjoying and soaking up every moments I can while spoiling Harper as an only child.
Worst moment of the week:  My 24 week check up was a little disappointing as I've gained more weight than I would like (or expect with how I eat and workout every day). Other than that, this was good week.
Running/Workouts: The awful bladder pain/constant feeling like I have to pee even though I just peed feeling is in full force. I remember it so clearly with Harper, and it sucks just as much this time around.
Missing anything: No
Movement: Always the best part of my day is feeling her move - it's like a secret we share when she kicks and turns, that only I know is happening. I find myself smiling or giggling when she does it, and sometimes getting some weird looks.
Things that make me queasy/recent cravings: Obsessed with my breakfast lately - a cooked egg on a bagel thin with slices of avocado. Yummy!
Energy level:  Energy is pretty good until about 1pm...aka nap time. I am usually down for the count after that.
Labor signs: No - but my uterus sure doesn't like it when I have a full bladder, and lets me know by contracting up a storm until I empty it.
Belly button in or out: In
Wedding ring on or off: On
Mood: Happy
Looking forward to: Getting baby girls room ready - we bought paint this week, so hopefully I'll be able get started on that!
Something surprising about being pregnant with baby #2: This little baby isn't even here yet, but I am already so excited to watch Harper and her interact. Harper still really has no idea what's going to happen when she arrives, but every day she says the baby is in my belly, and asks to hold her. Most days she promises to share her toys and play with her. I know Harper is going to love being a be sister, not to mention, will be the best big sister ever.
