Today [1.23.2013] marks being

25 weeks pregnant!

We are 62.5% of the way there. WAHOOOOO! :)

I am so grateful that we have made it this far! I find myself praying over her constantly. I did the same thing with Tayler. I was just telling one of my friends the other night that pregnancy is such a beautiful thing, but it is so nervewrecking at times because I feel like I can't protect her like I want to on the inside, if that makes sense. I, of course, want her to keep baking, but I find myself counting her kicks.. making sure I feel her on a regular basis.. I just can't wait to see her sweet face in about 84-105 days! (that's right... that's ALL we have left!!)

And can I just say...

We still have nothing done. :(

Ethan and I were just talking about it last night how at this point, everything was done for Tayler. We were just waiting on my baby shower to see what else we were going to be blessed with. And with poor Quinn, we have half of her room painted.. that's it :( It's just so hard to find the time. With Tayler, I could do things through the day to prepare, but that's difficult to do with an almost 2 year old, LOL, so stuff just sits. I keep making lists of things we need to buy, but we just don't have the funds for it right now. Thankfully, we have 12-15 weeks left... so even if things HAVE to wait until March or April.. they will. I know it will all come together. Good thing is-- the girl has clothes and LOVE and that's all she needs right now :)

So what's going on in week 25??

Well, 'The Bump' says she is about the size of a cauliflower now! They say she is measuring in at about 13.6-14.8 in length and weighs about 1.5-2.2lbs. We have an ultrasound March 2nd, so I'll know more specifics then (I can hardly stand waiting!!!) I can't wait to compare her 31 week picture with Tayler's 33 week picture. I am so anxious to see if they look anything alike :)

We can see her shifting around now. Not just little bumps and kicks... full SHIFTS. It is amazing! I love this part of pregnancy :) It was so awesome to see Tayler moving around and I feel blessed I get to experience it one more time with Quinn! Ethan got to feel her last night and he was just crying... because they are so strong now and sooooo noticeable! It's such a beautiful sign that there is LIFE within you!

And as I stated earlier... We only have about 84-105 days left until we get to meet that gorgeous baby girl of ours! I can't wait. I mean.. I can because we don't have anything ready yet LOL but I am still so excited! I cannot wait to see how her and Tayler interact. It's so exciting!

Okay. Now how about the questions for the week..

How far along? 25 weeks
Total Weight Gain?  Probably 11-12 pounds I would say!
Maternity Clothes?  Yes! Still wearing some pre-preggo shirts, but definitely maternity pants, haha!
Stretch Marks? Yes, but I keep telling myself it is for a beautiful reason!
Sleep?  I have struggled this week. Some nights, I have to fight so hard to get comfortable. I know I've said that before, but it's so odd to me that I'm not even that big, but I still struggle to get comfortable!
Best Moment of This Week:  Every day I feel Quinn and wake up to Tayler is perfect!
Miss Anything? Comfortable sleep. LOL
Movement? Oh my yes! Constantly. She is super active. Love it!
Food Cravings? Subway. Details? Veggie sub on Italian Herbs and Cheese bread, toasted. With lettuce, tomatoes, onions, jalapenos, black pepper, and LOTS of chipotle sauce. Mmm! Just thinking about it right now makes me want one!
Anything Make You Queasy/Sick?  Poopy diapers. Thinking about certain foods!
Gender: GIRL!! :) Our Quinn Makenzie!
Labor Signs? No thank the Lord! :)
Symptoms:  Really now-- it's just peeing in the middle of the night! Braxton Hicks. I have had one or two this week!
Belly Button In or Out? She's an innie!
Weddings Rings On Or Off? On for now! :)
Happy or Moody this week? Very happy! :)
Looking Forward To:  Our ultrasound March 2nd! Not looking forward to my glucose test February 13th! :( But I know it has to be done LOL

Happy 25 weeks... on to 26 weeks!

Can't believe our 3rd trimester is only 14 days away!
