Baby Angel Progress- Week 25

I’ve got the crockpot started, dishwasher loaded and running, my favorite lavender candle burning and I’m ready to start blogging!  This week was nice, hubby and I got a lot done and even managed to get out of town for a few days.

How far along? 25 Weeks starting on September 2nd, 2015

Total weight gain/loss: currently weigh 138 lbs, started at 114 lbs

Maternity clothes? Yes, only shorts.

Stretch marks? Yes, same ones on my hips, nothing new and they haven’t gotten worst.

Sleep: This week a few nights sucked but…eh… thats okay.  Some nights I feel like I have so much pressure on my lungs that I can’t breathe so I have to fall asleep sitting up…well for that reason and because my back kills sleeping on my sides…. but a few nights I got good sleep…thank goodness!

Best moment this week:  As with every week… I always have a few “Best” moments! The week was slow, but over the weekend (Labor Day weekend) hubby was off for 4 days! Thats almost unheard of so we took advantage of his time off and caught up on baby organizing.  We made a little area for her (she won’t be having a room because we are moving shortly after her birth), then we headed out of town! We went up to Chico and knocked something off of my hubby bucket list.  We went to the Sierra Nevada Brewing Co.  He had a blast and I LOVED seeing him have such  great time and enjoying himself.

We went on a tour and it was awesome, it started off with, of course a beer!  We watched an educational video then ate some grains… then off we went! We then went into where they make the beer, and learned so much!

One of our favorite parts was the room that held the hops.  It was FREEZING in there and most of the guys said it smelled good but me being pregnant…not so much.  But it was super cool going in there!

We got to see where they do the labeling, unfortunately they weren’t running while we were there but it was still cool to see!

Hubbys favorite part was the last part of the tour.  A beer tasting!  He even got to taste a beer that they only sample at the tour (not sold to the public) AND a beer that came out only 2 days prior to us being there that wasn’t out in stores yet! So awesome!

After the tour we headed over to their restaurant and yummy….their food is SO good!

Oh, also a best moment this week was at 4am on one of the mornings we were in Chico, I felt the baby have hiccups for the first time!  It was weird but kind of cool, I even woke up my husband just to tell him haha! Last week I told you all I would share my swaddle collection I have been building up…that may have to wait till next week because I have a few more coming in the mail….yikes! Baby girl will be set!   I have the craziest obsession with muslin and bamboo swaddles and blankets… it might be getting a little out of hand LOL

Oh, I also discovered this great app that this week I started taking photos with.  Its called “Rhonna” .

Labor Signs: None.

Symptoms: Same as before…. nausea, stiff hands, fatigue, swollen hands and feet sometimes, blurry vision at times, you know…fun pregnancy stuff…

Belly Button in or out? In…but I give it a few weeks before its out…

Wedding rings on or off? Off

Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy

Looking forward to: Our co-ed baby shower! I can’t wait for it, hopefully more people start to RSVP though.  Also in a few weeks I have another baby dr. appointment and is pure she will send me in for a random blood draw to track my glucose levels… not stoked for that but…it is what it is.  I can’t wait for baby girl to be here…. 25 weeks down, 15 more to go…its going by so fast!

Thanks for reading! XOXO Love Always,
