{25 weeks}

These pics were taken as I was heading out the door to one of my best friend's baby showers. I wanted to get this week's she-bump shot then because I knew I would be in leggings/sweatpants all night and Monday night. Gotta be comfy while packing.
How far along? 25 weeks
Total weight gain? 17 pounds. 
Maternity clothes? A few here and there. Last week I wore some of my old cropped jeans and just did the hair band trick. The weather is getting nicer so I am hoping to switch to just comfy dresses.
Stretch marks? No
Sleep? Excellent. I decided to give up stress for lent. Such a weird thing to give up but I have been working on coping mechanisms when I start to feel anxious or stressed. I think teaching myself these techniques now will really come in handy after the baby comes. It seems to be really helping my sleep too. 
Best moment this week? I would have to say Saturday night. I literally did nothing. I was home alone…parents gone...husband gone. Cooper and I just curled up on the couch and rented a movie. It was so relaxing and just what I needed before the packing frenzy begins this week. We move into our house the weekend of the 21st so the next couple of weeks are going to be busy.
Miss anything? Not really this week
Food cravings? Peanut butter, bananas, Honey Bunches of Oats cereal
Anything making you queasy or sick? Thankfully, no!
Gender? Girl
Labor signs? No
Movement? Yes…and some of the kicks are starting to get really hard. I was sitting in a quick meeting with my boss and she kicked me so hard I screeched. My boss looked at me like I was nuts but that was the first time she has ever made me react like that.
Symptoms? Achy back at the end of the day, some round ligament pain, shortness of breath. Other than that, I feel really thankful to be feeling so good. 
Belly button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or moody most of the time? Happy! We got all the nursery furniture ordered. Checking things off the list one by one. 
Looking forward to? Moving in two weeks and finally getting settled in after 10 months at my parents.
