25 Weeks

You can tell this is my third baby. I took this photo at 23 weeks with every intention of writing a post to go with it. And here I am at 25 weeks tomorrow. Oops! Waiting 3+ more months sounds like a long time, but the weeks truly are flying by!

I wanted to write down a few of the thoughts and feelings I've been having: 

I am feeling bigger with this baby than I did with the first two. I've gained around 16 pounds, so I'm a little uncomfortable with the way my clothes are fitting. I have a new striped maternity dress from Target, and I might just wear it every day from here on out!

I need to wear compression tights every day because the veins in my right leg have gotten worse with each pregnancy. Wearing tights with jeans over them in 75-80 degree weather is rough. I've been trying to sleep exclusively on my left side because this is supposed to help with vein circulation.

The baby moves a lot, but he mostly waits until N & E are in bed, or when I'm laying down for the night. I am always staring at my stomach, thinking, how does he fit in there? Even with my third, it is such a miracle!

Acid reflux has started rearing its ugly head recently. This means my love of tomato sauce has to be curbed. If I can't have pizza, I'm not sure I can live?! I haven't had any strong cravings or aversions lately, but I definitely am preferring sweet over salty. If you've been reading my blog for long, you know that Steve and I love our hot fudge sundaes at night. They weren't appealing to me during the whole first trimester, but now, I wait all day for that fudge. 

Having three boys has really started to sink in (in a good way). I'm really looking forward to seeing if this baby looks like Nolan or Ephraim, and what color hair and eyes he'll have. Our ultrasound from a few weeks ago is super clear, and I find his face to be so familiar and so beautiful. I can't wait to choose the perfect name for him. 
Sweet baby boy, we are so excited for you! We pray continuously that you are growing healthy and strong, our littlest love.


  1. I can't wait to hear the name and I can't wait to see what coloring he has as well!!

    You are the cutest pregnant lady...ever :)
