How Far Along: 25 weeks and 1 day

Size of Baby: According to The Bump, the baby is the size of a cauliflower, is between 13.6-14.8 inches long, and weighs anywhere between 1.5-2.5 pounds.

Total Weight Gain: As of last week, I've gained 18 pounds. I did. not. weigh myself this week, thankyouverymuch. Ummm, did you see how much I ate over Thanksgiving break?!?

Gender: It's a girl!!

Maternity Clothes: Definitely. Maternity pants + Thanksgiving = Amazing!

Wedding Rings On/Off: On

Stretch Marks: None yet. I'm still using cocoa butter lotion almost every day.

Sleep: Still sleeping great! :) I wake up about an hour before my alarm goes off, but I haven't been waking up in the middle of the night.

Cravings/Aversions: Mexican food and sweets. I'm loving being pregnant during the holidays, but I may *really* eat my words after this baby is born!

Symptoms: A few contractions here and there, ligament pains, and wanting to eat all. the. time.

Movement: Daniel finally felt her move on Sunday night!!!!! I was feeling some pretty strong kicks and I told him that I thought he'd be able to feel it. Sure enough, he did. It was so fun to see the look on his face! She's moving off and on throughout the day, but I still haven't figured out a pattern. I'm just hoping she doesn't have her days and nights confused when she's born! :)

Mood: Happy!!!

What I Miss: Nothing really except silly things like being able to wear anything out of my closet.

Looking Forward To: Lots of things! I can't wait to keep working on the nursery {we've started testing paint colors and we hung a chandelier!}. I'm also looking forward to Christmas shopping and baking {and eating}!!

Best Moment This Week: The best moment this week was definitely when Daniel finally felt the baby kick! It's neat for him to have that connection now, too! :)

And, just for fun, here's a side-by-side comparison. It's crazy how much can change in just 8 weeks!!
