My Pregnancy: 25 weeks



How far along: 25 weeks 

Total weight gain:  12.5 lbs. 
Maternity clothes: I went to the Motherhood Maternity outlet yesterday and picked up some under-belly skinny jeans from Heidi Klum's line. They fit great and are much better than the ones I had (which I returned) with the full waist panel. I kept having to pull them up multiple times a day, and now with these new jeans, I can just pull them up as needed, without the nuisance of fixing the waist panel to lay flat each time. I'm searching for a cute winter dress to wear to my baby showers, but haven't found anything worth buying yet.

Stretch marks: Nope! Coconut oil is my best friend.
Sleep: Unfortunately, I can't say Sleep and I are getting along too well right now. When I'm actually asleep, I sleep well, but once I wake up to use the bathroom, it's downhill from there. Multiple times this last week I woke up and stayed up for the next 2 hours or so. I either fell asleep after laying there for hours, or I just couldn't fall back to sleep at all. This mama wants sleep while I can get it! 
Pregnancy symptoms: The last few days I've really struggled with sciatic pain. It's really my piriformis muscle that has been causing me the most pain, on both sides. I've been doing some awesome yoga stretches that help give me relief, but it's only temporary. I have to do them a minimum of 3x a day. Hoping this doesn't last the remainder of my pregnancy. 

Best moment of this week: We got our Christmas tree and decorated the house. I LOVE decorating and seeing the Christmas lights on my tree. I'm so excited for the holidays! 

Miss anything: My non-waddling days. ;)
Movement: Lots of it and LOVING it. 
Belly button in or out: In. I can tell it's starting to push out a little more though, so we'll see if it ends up popping out, or just staying level with the rest of my belly. 
Wedding rings on or off: On
Mood: Overall, I'm feeling so blessed and content. I'm having some emotional moments here and there,  but that's to be expected!

Upcoming appointments/events: I just had an appt. on Friday. It was great hearing Greyson's heartbeat, and the doctor says he's measuring great. I need to schedule my glucose test, which will happen at 28 weeks. Other than that, my regular midwife appt. will be late Dec.
