25 week bump update

25 week bump update

How far along? 

25 weeks 🙂

How big is Bean?

Bean is BIG. The size of a) a head of cauliflower, b) a rutabaga, or c) a cantaloupe! Holy crappa! He is more than 13 inches long and weighs over 1.25 lbs.

DSC_0032.jpgTotal weight gain/loss? 

Don’t know my weight gain this week, but my belly is HUGE, and I suspect I have gained quite a bit of weight.


Sleep has been fine!

 Best moment this week?

We got a baby heartbeat monitor. It’s pretty amazing. We found Bean’s heartbeat right away and can hear when he kicks.




Other than a big huge belly, having very few symptoms.

Stretch marks?

Still no 🙂

Food cravings/aversions?

Hungry all the time.

Labor signs? 

Still having occasional Braxton Hicks.

Belly button in or out? 


What I miss?

My underwear fitting.

What I’m looking forward to? 

Our trip home is on Wednesday.


Beau’s nose is starting to work. He’s going through the steps of breathing with the fluid in my belly.

Next appointment?

I have four doctors’ appointments coming up: I have my ophthalmology appointment tomorrow, my echocardiogram 2/14, a consultation with a cardiologist on 2/23 and our 28 week OB appointment is on 3/3.
