25 Weeks

25 Weeks

This is my blog … it is a no nonsense blog

So this week has been interesting and fun-filled. Last week we left off with some really crabby rants of mine… I’m glad you all really enjoyed them and it was nice to see that I am not alone in the “lets judge/stare at the pregnant ladies game” that so many people like to partake in. Reading all of your comments made me feel better, so thank you!

On Saturday the 14th (AKA Flag Day) we celebrated my 26th birthday with my parents. We went “camping” at J.W. Wells State Park in Cedar River, Michigan. The reason I put the quotes around camping in the previous sentence is because I don’t really consider it camping. The sites are wide open and you are pretty much right on top of your neighbors, this park has electricity and it also has running water (toilets and showers). We only camped here was because we were unsure if my mom had to work and where we normally camp is approx. 3ish hours from Oshkosh, so we would only be able to enjoy ourselves there for a day and a half, so we were like let’s stay close to the parents’ house so Wells it was. {FUN FACT: Ben and I are more rustic campers. We like being in the middle of nowhere with no running water or electricity. We like to “rough it” as some people call it.} We had S’mores every night and yummy campfire food. I hope we can get out camping again this summer. :)

For my birthday Ben got me a Kindle!!!! I haven’t really put it down since I got it, there is so much reading to catch up on before the baby comes!!!! J If anyone has any book suggestions toss them my way!


Father’s Day was on Sunday so we took my dad out to lunch at the Downtown Sandwich & Ice Cream – AKA Sub Shoppe. YUM Subs and cheese curds. I should have gotten some ice cream. I wonder if they still have the bubble gum flavor??

Then it was back to reality on Monday… I went through the normal Monday things:

  • Oh yeah… I’m pregnant. Most of my work clothes don’t fit
  • Where is my lunch box? Ben have you seen my lunch box? No? *cries because she can’t find her lunch box.
  • I have no more apples? L cries some more

Then at work I have a revelation… I CAN’T SEE MY FEET ANYMORE!!! Where the heck did they go???? I mean, I have small feet it was bound to happen but… I miss them.

On the plus side we did get to go see our house. The “tenants” had us over to show us some of the things about the house… water shut off valves, rain gutter heaters, etc… I can’t wait to start moving. Hopefully we get to start at the end of the month!!! :)

Speaking of moving I hired some movers to move our heavier items J WOOT.

To answer some people’s questions, because I know they are afraid to ask… yes, I’m pregnant! Thanks for staring! J AND… Why yes, I do know that I have a short torso… Thanks for the anatomy lesson on my body that I have lived in for 26 years. – I know this comes with the territory one day it wont bother me as much… I hope.

Update Time!!!

How far along?  25 Weeks. One more week until the big 3rd Trimester.

**Total weight gain/loss: ** +18

**How big is baby: **Baby is measuring in at 13.6 – 14.8 inches. That’s about the size of a Cauliflower. Weighing in at 1.5 – 2.5lbs.

**Maternity clothes? ** I should be all set now.

**Sleep: **Sleep has been nice. But I can’t see to get enough of it even though I get 8 hours.

Best moment this week:  Camping over the weekend and celebrating Ben’s Father to be Day.

Movement:  My child is a raver. She is constantly moving right now. It’s kind of distracting.

Food cravings:  Lately (I think it’s because of the heat/humidity) I haven’t been in the mood for food, just ice water. Don’t worry I’m eating but it’s always a hard decision

Gender:  Little Lady

Belly Button in or out? In right now, but I just have to stretch my stomach a bit and it pops out. I predict in a few weeks I will have an outie.

What I miss: I miss my normal summer clothes. And judge me all you want but I miss not being pregnant. I also miss mojitos. Oh and my feet too. I haven’t seen them in a few days, I might have to send out a search party to find them.

**What I am looking forward to: **Moving and setting up her nursery.

Milestones:  She can now tell which way is up and which way is down. She is growing more fat and hair too.


  • Start the pediatrician search
  • Find a daycare
  • Find a Medical supply store to order/get my breast pump.
