25 Weeks: First Braxton Hicks

25 weeks already! That means only 15 to go!  I know July will be here soon and we are so excited to meet our little boy bundle of joy!  I finally feel like I look pregnant, most days anyway (instead of just fat), and I got my first "I know you're not supposed to ask women this, but are you pregnant?" question the other day.  I'll totally take that as a compliment! :)
How Far Along: 25 Weeks

Size of Baby:
An eggplant (over a foot long and nearly 2 pounds!)

What's Happening:
Baby Sides' has a sense of equilibrium and can sense being right-side-up from upside-down.  He is also growing more fat and hair (well, if he has hair...I didn't until I was three).

Seriously, I think cravings are a bunch of BS.  I haven't really had any the entire pregnancy...

He's moving a lot...still can't distinguish between types of movement, but I'm lucky in that it hasn't kept me awake at night.  Yet...

Sleep is getting more and more difficult, but I'm still doing a decent amount of it! :)  (Did you expect anything less from a girl that could sleep 12+ hours a day?)

My new goal is to get through the school year without buying any maternity pants!  Now that it's warm, I'm hoping to wear skirts and dresses and the few pairs of pre-pregnancy capri pants that I can still squeeze into (with the Bella Band, of course!).  I did order a few more Old Navy shirts and a super cute maternity dress though...

Other Pregnancy Symptoms:
I haven't experienced any more of that heartburn/acid reflux feeling, thank goodness!  My hands are still achy and tingly when I wake up nearly every morning, which sucks, but it's nothing I can't deal with.  I'm also peeing, oh, 12 times a day!?  That's a lot for someone who used to go four or five times per day, max!!  I love telling my kids they can hold it if the pregnant lady can!!  I also think I've experienced my first few Braxton Hicks contractions...the first being last Friday at 24 1/2 weeks.  My stomach got really tight and hard...it freaked me out, but my friend assured me it was normal!  The Internet said they can begin around six weeks of pregnancy; it's just further into pregnancy before you feel them.  I felt another earlier today.  So strange!!

Here's the baby bump!
