25 weeks {babybrink#2}

I don't know if I look as big as I feel like I look, or if I'm at that stage in pregnancy where I am just big (and only getting bigger)... but I feel like I look huge, ha!
Size of baby: cauliflower! And the uterus is the size of a soccer ball... totally weird to talk about my uterus, ha ha! But I suppose that explains why I feel so big :)

Movements: all the time and I still love it! He will drag his feet/hands/body parts against our hands (or anything that is pressing against my belly) and it catches me off guard every time as it's a different sensation than the little kicks and punches I'm used to, but it's so fun!

Cravings: peaches and pineapple. I got some of both this week, yum!

Miss anything: yep, I'm still whining about this... I miss clear skin! I asked my doctor if there was anything I could do for my skin at my appointment last week, knowing that his answer would be no :( He reminded me that this is 100% hormones and I'm not doing anything wrong, which I suppose I needed to hear because I do feel like I'm doing something wrong. I think I feel that way because I was cleared up at this point in my pregnancy with Mia, but every week seems to be worse than the last week with this one. Major bummer!

Random: I've been feeling braxton hicks contractions for weeks now each time I workout, but in the last couple of weeks I notice them other times throughout my days... but mostly when I'm exerting energy towards something. Also, I was really hoping to avoid swelling with this pregnancy but I won't be lucking out in that department either. With all the brutal heat we've been experiencing these last two weeks, my legs are starting to swell. I make time to elevate my feet midday (when Mia is down for her nap) and at the end of the day. Pregnancy is so not glamorous, ha ha! But it's worth it!

Best moment of the week: last week I talked about Mia noticing my big/growing belly, well, this week she has been trying to prove to me that her belly is growing as well, ha ha! One night while I was putting lotion on her and putting on her pjs, Mia kept pulling her belly button out as far as she could. I told her to stop a couple of times and when she kept doing it, I asked her what she was doing. She patter her belly and said, "it's big! it's growing!" I was so caught of guard by her answer and couldn't help but laugh and laugh! Silly girl!! Other times she will randomly pat her belly and tell me, "it's growing! I big!!" Mia is so fun... and better enjoy her normal belly for years and years to come ;)

Haha! It is so funny when they mimic you. I can see that image if little Miss Mia sticking her tummy out! I love that dress on you and your hair looks gorgeous! It is crazy what happens to every inch our bodies when you are pregnant. The skin thing must be frustrating but it will be worth it in the end and to be honest, I cannot even tell in your pics!

I'm sorry about your face breaking out--I know how frustrating that can be. I wonder if tea tree oil is safe to use during pregnancy? That's what I've been using and it seems to help. Mia is so sweet! She's gonna be the best big sister!

hahaha a Mia bump too! Just like mommy =) too cute.

I had the same complexion problems when I was pregnant with Marcus. This time around I think being out in the sun (with SPF, of course) has helped bunches.
Love that Mia is so into your pregnancy. That is just the sweetest!
Pineapples and peaches both sound heavenly right now. I'm going to have to add those to our grocery list. Watermelon has also been on point during these hot days, too. :)

Ashley @ Words About Waverly said...

You look adorable - not big at all!!!! :). And getting close!

P!nky said...

Aww you look great, lady! I can only imagine how frustrating it is with skin that breaks out and can imagine it's doubly frustrating that you can't do anything about it :(! You look beautiful lady, remember that!!

Mia is tooo cute!

Brett said...

Is it safe to wash your face with baking soda every other day while pregnant? That has worked miracles with my skin!

Sarah said...

You look great, and that Mia, she's so adorable!

Brittany said...

Mia is always making my day and I've never even met her. That cracks me up that she pretends her belly is growing, too! She wants to be just like her momma!

Allison Cooley said...

The one thing I miss from being pregnant is feeling all the movements! I love hearing the things Mia says/does! She is too cute!

I had the WORST skin when I was pregnant with Mila. Not only my face, but my neck and back broke out all the time - which is not normal for my skin at all. Nothing I did helped, so I just dealt with it (and covered it up with makeup!). It should just be temporary, so just keep telling yourself that! For what it's worth, I think you look great!

Evelina said...

She's so funny! Odd question, how do you like having a male doctor during your pregnancy? I have a male doctor now and I'm sure he will be great but is it weird at all?

Tara said...

you are so tiny and cute! definitely not big! love hearing all the adorable things mia does :)

Tawnya Faust said...

You look adorable!! Not big at all :) I know the feeling though... I seriously feel huge and I haven't even gained much weight. I hope your skin starts to clear up, I feel for you... my last pregnancy was rough for acne. BUT it did clear up pretty quickly post partum and I think even into the last trimester it started cleaning up for me :)

Laura Marie Keenan said...

I suffered from bad skin with both of my pregnancies. It's such a bummer and doesn't help with "feeling pretty" especially with the growing belly. I started using witch hazel toner (all over) & lemon essentials oils (on zits) which seemed to help a bit, but not perfectly.

Joie de Viv said...

hahah - Mia! So cute! Ugh, I feel you on the soccer ball sized uterus! You look great and that dress is so pretty!
