How far along? 25 weeks. Baby is the size of a rutabaga, whatever the heck that is. In case you missed my last update, here’s my 24 week update.
Maternity clothes? I’m wearing mostly maternity clothes now and the clothes that aren’t maternity are longer shirts or dresses. These shorts are from The Swanky Stork and a nice cool linen to get me through the summer.
Stretch marks? No.
Other Body Changes: Still just mild growing pains. I bought a bathing suit top 3 weeks ago in Ireland and wore it this weekend to the pool for the first time. I can’t believe how tight it is now after that short time frame!
Sleep: Good. I feel a little heavy when I turn now.
Movement: Feeling lots of movement multiple times throughout the day now. I was cracking up during church because I realized I had my arms crossed and resting ON my stomach. I felt Leyton kick my arms…so surreal.
Gender: boy…Leyton Samuel. Eric is named after his grandfather who we love dearly and call Grandpa Sam. That’s the inspiration for Leyton’s middle name.
Symptoms: Back pain, right side upper abdominal pain. When I’m doing Pure Barre now, during abs, I definitely feel weird things like my upper stomach going numb or not feeling much. I feel the need to sit higher and to always have the ball in my small back as well.
Wedding rings on or off? On
Mood: Feeling so emotional. I am normally not a big crier and it takes a lot to get under my skin but that’s not necessarily the case now. I’ve been watching the last few episodes of the season of Grey’s Anatomy on DVR and it’s been an ugly crying situation.
Looking forward to: Home searching! Ready for a crib and nursery.
