Baby Sauvageau: 25 Weeks

Hello and Happy Valentine’s Day!!! It’s time for the weekly pregnancy update. I can’t believe next Saturday starts the third trimester. Time definitely isn’t slowing down and I haven’t done much to prepare for this little girl to make an appearance besides moving Noah out of the nursery and into a big boy bed in January. He did great with the transition! At the same time, newborns don’t enter the world demanding your have a perfectly decorated nursery and everything in order? Hopefully my nesting instinct will kick in soon anyway :-)

Baby’s size: Cauliflower? and she’s a very active little cauliflower at that!

 Maternity clothes? Yes! Always? except for that one time and I paid for it

Stretch marks? None yet! The varicose veins on my legs are pretty incredible though.

Sleep: It was actually really good (relatively speaking) this week! I think the combination of being sick and taking care of a sick kid wore me out enough to make it comfortable. When I’m not pregnant I sleep on my stomach with no pillow. It’s been a different experience sleeping on my side/back with several pillows to get comfortable but I think I’ve found a good, comfortable position now!

Best moment this week: Getting over being sick, feeling the baby kick like crazy, talking to one of my best friends (Leigh, she just had her second baby!) for a while yesterday, my back feeling better, and the PERFECT weather we’ve had the past two days! It’s sunny and the highs are in the 60s.

Miss anything? Again, being pain free. 

Movement: Yes! And she’s big enough now where if she kicks hard enough it actually hurts a little haha! It’ll be interesting to see if she’s a busybody when she’s born too.

Food Cravings: I want GIRL SCOUT COOKIES! Where are they?!? I swear I have seen them out and about for weeks and now that I want some cookies there isn’t a girl scout to be found in the state of Texas. In all seriousness, this week I noticed I wanted a lot of carbs. Cereals, bread, pasta, cake, cookies? Maybe because they’re easier to digest when you don’t feel so hot. Yesterday I got a really strong craving for Buffalo Wild Wings boneless wings so I’m pretty sure our Valentine’s Day plans include some fried chicken. Classy, eh? 

Anything making you queasy or sick? Yes, I will spare you the details from earlier in the week. It wasn’t pregnancy related though…

Gender: Girl!!!

Labor Signs: None!

Symptoms: Mainly just the back pain still. I feel pretty great/happy otherwise! 

Belly Button ? in or out?  In, and getting flatter haha!

Wedding Rings ? on or off? On!

Happy or Moody? Happy with the direction things are heading :-)

Looking Forward To: Fried chicken tonight. Don’t judge. And a beautiful weekend!!! 

For your viewing pleasure? here was Valentine’s Day last year with Noah and my niece.

Off to see my BFF the chiropractor (no, seriously) and then do some fun Valentine’s Day prep with Noah for tonight! I’m excited to see/hear about all of your yummy treats and plans! Tell someone you love them today and have an amazing weekend!

Aw, I’m so sorry y’all were sick, but glad the worst is behind you! My energy has actually kicked up a notch since getting into the third trimester… my new vitamins? Luck? Who knows! But hopefully it’s the same for you :)

Try not to sleep on your back! It can be dangerous to baby’s organs!
