Maternity Monday

Last Monday of 2013!
What a wild ride it has been! I am grateful for all the experiences and lessons
I have learned this year. For the memories and friends I’ve made, for old
readers and new readers.

I’m looking forward
to 2014, last year in my 20’s! YIKES!

But I know 2014 will
be filled with wonderful new memories, new friends, old friends, and family.

Thanks to each of
you for taking time out to stop by my little corner of the World Wide Web, it
means so much to me!

Cheers to a fabulous
New Year!

With that being
said, I recently had a maternity photo shoot, and I just wanted to share a few
of the pictures with you. I’ll be sharing more pictures and more about the
photographer in the coming weeks but I figured a sneak peek would be fun!
Right? Right! 🙂

My Santa hat says “I’ve been naughty” LOL 😉

Here’s my current pregnancy update:

  • How
    far along: 
    25 weeks – more than ½ way there!
  • How
    big is baby: 
    About the size of a rutabaga, weighing in at almost
    1 ½ pounds!
  • Weight
    gain: 
    about 12 pounds
  • Sleeping:  It
    is really hard to get comfortable lately. With back aches, a bigger belly,
    and leg cramps sleeping doesn’t come too easily. I try to nap when I can
    and I am still using my pregnancy pillow. Also baby is REALLY
    active at night, I she takes a late night Zumba class! 🙂
  • Food
    cravings: 
    Sushi, hot dogs, and beer! Oh how I’d LURVE a nice cold beer!
  • Food
    aversions: 
    Still avoiding garlic.
  • Missing: Adult
    drinks and real sushi, sure I can have the cooked rolls but it just isn’t
    the same. I also really miss my regular clothes. It’s hard going in stores
    and seeing all these cute styles of clothes and shoes but not being able
    to buy anything. I’m just not sure what size I’ll be after baby so I don’t
    want to buy something that may be too small, or too big.
  • Symptoms: 
    I’ve been taking it easy and trying not to do too much. I have some aches
    and pains here and there, but that’s normal. Having a lot more of the
    Braxton Hicks contractions, but I know that’s just my body’s way of
    prepping for the big day!
  • Doctor’s
    appointment: 
    Next week!
  • Movement: Baby
    is definitely on the move! I have no idea what she is doing in there
    sometimes!
  • Gender
    / Names: 
    Beautiful baby girl 
  • Best
    moment of the week:  
    Christmas with my family. It was so
    nice to have my in laws visit and share the holiday with them!
  • What
    I’m looking forward to: 
    Hearing the heartbeat at my next appt! It’s
    my favorite part
  •  What
    I did / Got for baby: 
    My mom sent the cutest dress for her but I
    haven’t done any shopping, and I still need to do my registry! So behind
    on that!
