25 Weeks // pregnancy #2

25 Weeks
Size of a baseball mitt
about 14 in. long
Weighs about 2 lbs

How far along: 25 weeks!!! My second trimester is wrapping up! 
Total weight gain: about 20lbs already! wheeewww. Even trying to have an active pregnancy, I am gained weight and showing more faster this pregnancy than my pregnancy with evelyn. Maybe because it's all been stretch already? 
Maternity clothes: YES. nothing fits me. My "go to" outfits lately are oversized t-shirts, leggings or maternity jeans with a buttonup wrapped around my waist. At night I can't wear pajama pants because the elastic band hurts my hips. So I have been sleeping in a night gown from Dwell and Slumber and it's really comfortable! 
Stretch marks: Uh I noticed some on my lady ta-tas! eeeeep! just slightly but it makes me a little nervous where it's so early on. I didn't see any stretch marks with evelyn until the very end. So we will see how this goes! I'm hoping I won't get many because everything has already stretched before.
Sleep: Sleep has been great! I'm cherishing my full nights of sleep! Because I know soon my pregnancy bladder won't allow it and then the newborn sleep deprived days... haha so I LOVE SLEEP RIGHT NOW!
Best moment lately: David felt baby girl kick for the first time the other day! It was so exciting! 
Miss anything: My clothes. haha and feeling fit and being able to work out has hard as I used to.
Movement: yep! Little girl seems to be quite the active little gal!
Anything making you queasy or sick: Strong scents. air refreshers in public places... blehhh 
Have you started to show yet: yep! you know you are actually starting to look pregnant when in public people have the courage and are beginning to "ask" about your pregnancy. So I guess I'm actually looking pregnant instead of looking like I have a food baby 24/7
Gender: GIRL!!! 
Labor signs: nope
Belly button in or out: In and my tummy sure is getting tighter
Wedding rings on or off: On
Happy or moody most of the time: happy mostly! I really think exercise helps SO MUCH! We've had a lot of stress lately with job loss and insurance stuff but everything is working out and I know we are being looked out for!
Looking forward to: The Swenson Family reunion coming up the beginning of June! Also our yard! We are working really hard to FINALLY put in our back yard and sprinkler system in both front and back. I'm so exciting!
