Bump Update: 25 Weeks

ps- We weren't sure if it was "a cauliflower" but my patience these days isn't what it used to be. 
Sorry if I am offending anyone with my English, haha.

How far along? 25 weeks! I have milestones etched in my head and 25 weeks is one of them!
Total weight gain/loss: I think I'm about +11-12
Maternity clothes? Still a little bit of everything. I think some items like the TB sweater pictured above will be worn for the entire pregnancy. {Highly recommend it, especially nice for its length!} Lots of things are no longer looking good on the baby bump. I'm hoping I can mix and match basics, and dress things up with accessories and jewels to get me through! I don't want to invest a lot in clothing I will only be wearing for three more months.
Stretch marks? No but I had a minor freak out moment picturing the worst. Can someone tell me at what point you usually get them?
Sleep: It's been OK. A little back and hip pain from lying on my side. I was sick all week and some nights were just not fun.
Best moment this week: Shopping for the baby boy...and getting to spend the weekend at home with my husband.
Miss Anything? Picking out an outfit easily. 
Movement: A ton!
Food cravings: Hmm...nothing to crazy this week! I always enjoy a sweet bite or two {usually chocolate} and have been eating lots of apples still.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Indigestion.
Have you started to show yet: Yes.
Gender: Boy
Labor Signs: No
Belly Button in or out? It's still in!
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or Moody most of the time: Mentally happy and physically exhausted from being sick. I stayed home from work most of the week and recovered pretty quickly from a cold. Still getting better...but rest is key!!
Looking forward to: Working on the nursery more! We've chipped away at a few more things to get going...

Moments from this week...

{My mom sent me this of my new niece. How darling! She is just over a week old now}

 {Hubby loving. We had a mini spontaneous photo shoot before his office Christmas party. It has taken me getting pregnant to appreciate the wonders of the blazer. I'm insanely in love with this one by Ella Moss}

{Dixie is just like her Mom, she loves Lilly Pulitzer. I found her on the bed Saturday morning nestled down on my new vest I got for my birthday}

Thanks for reading y'all!

I wore cardigans and blazers through out my entire pregnancy. It totally maximizes the wardrobe! You are so cute!! That is one precious niece you have!

I agree about not buying tons of maternity stuff, I don't think I'm going to get away with wearing my jeans much longer though. I hate not being able to just "throw something on" these days. Love the picture of your baby niece, how adorable:)
